Not Tuna Pâté

Yield: 3/4 cup, 2 servings

This pâté is my daily staple—it’s delicious, versatile, and filling. Not Tuna Pâté is the perfect addition to turn a salad into a main dish. You may wish to make a larger batch, since it will keep for five days.


  • 1/2 cup soaked sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup soaked almonds
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced celery
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley


  • measuring cups
  • measuring spoons
  • citrus juicer or reamer
  • food processor
  • rubber spatula
  • small bowl
  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch

Put the sunflower seeds, almonds, water, lemon juice, and salt in a food processor fitted with the S blade and process into a paste, stopping occasionally to scrape down the work bowl with a rubber spatula. Transfer to a small bowl and stir in the celery, onion, and parsley until well combined. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator, Not Tuna Pâté will keep for 5 days.
