Walnut Pate Cucumber Tea Sandwich bites

My first attempt at posting something for Fiesta Friday that I was so excited to discover on the Novice Gardener blog…. what a great idea, bringing people together with awesome food.

I tend to cook healthy and mostly vegetarian food. This weekend we had celebrated with friends with snacks and team. Some good walnuts, a can of cannellini beans inspired a pate for tea sandwiches

2 cups walnuts ( soaked and rinsed)

I cup cannellini beans drained

1 roasted red pepper

a handful of basil leaves ( here i used summer basil that I had frozen in cubes – recipe can be found here )

3 cloves of garlic

1 tablespoon nutritional yeast

1/4 cup olive oil

juice of 1/2 lemon and 1/2tsp of grated lemon rind

salt to taste

Blend all the ingredients together until thick creamy. Adding some walnuts before completely grind will give it a nice chunky texture.

Using a good multigrain bread, spread the pate of both sides, fill with cucumber slices and organic spring greens. Cut as you wish in small tea sandwich sizes pieces.
