Mini Cucumber Bowls w/ Almond Pâté

Here's a quick'n'healthy raw appetizer for the Oscar night. Almond pâté is made with almonds and sunflower seeds. It contains only plant based protein and fat, unlike in a regular french pâté which has meat. An awesome way to get your veggies, protein and fat and still sit back and enjoy your favorite stars :)



Ingredients:

  • English cucumber - 2
  • Almonds - 1/2 cup
  • Sunflower seeds - 1/2 cup 
  • Celery - 1 stalk
  • Red bell pepper - 1/2
  • Red chilly - 1
  • Basil leaves - a small bunch 
  • Sea salt - 1/2 tsp

Directions:

  • Grind everything to a fine paste in a food processor or blender.
  • Cut the cucumber into 1/2 inch slices. Scoop out the middle using a small scooper.
  • Put the pâté in a ziplock bag and cut the corner. 
  • Squeeze out about a tablespoon each of the pâté into each cucumber bowl.
  • Enjoy in good company and root for your favorite stars :)
