View Full Version : pate challenge
04-30-2007, 09:57 AM
so i finally made alissa's mock salmon pate this weekend -- i absolutely adore it. i added extra veggies like carrots & onions and extra celery. i was surprised how yummy it is. tasted like delicious tuna to me.
the problem is -- i could probably eat the whole amount in a short period of time.
so the challenge -- i'd like to decrease the amount of nuts a bit (maybe to 1C instead of 2) & add something (non-nut based). what could i add?
can anyone help me with this challenge? THANKS!!!!!!

Funny you should ask as I was just talking about this very thing this weekend - when I make the mock salmon, I also like less nuts in it - so I simply replace half of the amount of walnuts with carrots! It was yummy and my class attendees loved it too!

i was thinking cauliflower or parsnips too (because they have the grainy consistency like the nuts).
yes -- i loved the addition of carrots.
i guess i'll experiment a bit.
keep the suggestions coming! i still can't believe how yummy this simple pate is!

That mock salmon pate was one of the first raw recipes I ever tried and oh my goodness is it ever yummy. But itís also rich so I can understand you not wanting to eat a whole recipe in one setting. Rawkinlocs idea about the carrots has me wondering if shredded cabbage would work. Iíll be interested in reading everyoneís suggestions.

thanks val! i have shredded red cabbage in the fridge. i'll add that to my next batch -- if nothing else, the color will be divine!

I have discovered leftover juice pulp works great for replacing half or more of the nuts. The pulp I use is usually from carrots, celery, beets and greens. I think the pulp has a good consistency for mock salmons and tunas, plus the herbs and seaweed make most of the flavor anyways.

Sprouts are good for that tuna salad texture.
(the mock salmon I love, but it tastes more like tuna to me - nuthin wrong with that, though!)

I love tuna! I have never ate salmon before. :eek: I am going to try to banana search the recipe! :D

Why are you wanting to replace the nuts? Is it too rich for you? I would also suggest sunflower seeds. They are not so calorie-laden and blend well with flavours.
