About the Recipe

This paté can rival that of one favoured by carnivores. It has a great texture and flavour profile to compliment conserves, cheese and crackers. One to try as an addition to those that want some comfort food or something different as part of the snacking board.

Walnuts provide omega oils in the form of ALA but also a positive impact on the gut bacteria by increasing butyrate production – beneficial for colonic health as well as reducing the amount of secondary bile acids that are created by the microbiome; known to be harmful to the gut.
