Walnut, Tomato and Sage Pâté

Just two store cupboard ingredients plus a herb that grows in many gardens across the UK. 

Serves 4-6

Ingredients

·         100g sundried tomatoes in oil

·         100g walnuts soaked in cold water for a couple of hours

·         1 tbsp sage leaves, rinsed and chopped

·         salt and pepper to taste

Method

Place all the ingredients together with 1 to 2 tablespoons of water in the bowl of a food processor. Blend to a smooth purée. Add a little more water or oil from the sundried tomatoes if you need to make the paste smoother. Taste the pâté and season with salt and pepper.

NB A 15g portion of sundried tomatoes contains moderate amounts of excess fructose. Sundried tomatoes should be eaten sparingly by people who malabsorb fructose.
