Okay, here we are at Alchemy Café in Imani’s Raw Kitchen. And we’re going a demo too. We’re making a luscious live pate. First, we start with walnuts. These are organic walnuts. We soaked them and cleaned with clean water, and then we take that wet nut, stick it our food processor. I’ve already processed it here so this is the ground up nuts in the food processor using about four cups of nuts. I’m making an extra large recipe here so you might make something smaller at home. And this recipe is super delicious and super simple.
So the way you do it is you cut up two red peppers, really lovely luscious red peppers, my favorite food on the planet. And on the bottom here, I have some celery, cut up celery. So cut the red peppers, and then I have a little bit of water, about a half a cup and some scallions, about a half a bunch of scallions. And then my favorite seasoning is the herbamare. And if you can see that there, herbamare. We’re going to use this mixture, this lovely mixture with just few simple ingredients and we’re going to add it into our walnuts and our food processor.
Okay, so you’re going to blend this until it’s a tiny consistency. You might blend a little bit longer than you think. You really want a kimi. It’s a buttery patte. You really want to get that consistency. So you can taste it. It’s this beautiful pink color. And what we’re going to do with this is fabulous. We’re going to use this nori. The only product I use is Ultimate Raw, so it’s nori. It’s a sushi roll. So we’re going to use this nori sheet. We’re going to lay down a piece of a lettuce. I usually do about two.
So we’ve got our Romaine Lettuce down here. We’re going to take a couple spoonfuls of our lovely patte, put it across. We’re going to take a fresh organic cucumber. I usually take the skins off these partially. So I’m going to use one patte, I’m using a half of hat, so a quarter of a cucumber cut into slices. I love to show the seeds. So we should do about three pieces. This is what we have served here at Alchemy in Hartford. And I love red peppers. We use a lot of red peppers. They’re not super sustainable because they do have a distance but they’re really essential in the raw food diet. So we got three red peppers, some sunflower sprouts, lovely luscious sunflower sprouts. And then when I cut one of these perfectly ripened creamy avocados, and then we’re going to top it with some hem seeds. And here we go, our nori wrap with walnut patte. Delicious and nutritious right here at the Alchemy Café.
