Raw Pate/Spread – “Seafood Tuna Pate”

Very versatile vegan pate. This is especially great for someone who is having tuna-type cravings, but is following a vegetarian/vegan/raw diet. You can add in different herbs and spices, depending on your tastes. Maybe add in a little bit of fresh dill, some cayenne, nutritional yeast….have fun playing around with it. I find this a little heavy to eat on its own, so I like having a little bit of the side with some raw vegetables, or in a lettuce wrap, or a bit on top of a spinach salad.


Raw Pate/Spread - "Seafood Tuna Pate"
  • 2½ cups soaked sunflower seeds (I soaked them overnight...I recommend 8-12 hrs)
  • 3 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 1½ juiced lemons
  • 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ purple onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder or 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • small bunch of parsley, finely chopped
  • ½ cup finely chopped kelp (I briefly soaked the dried kelp and then added it into the food processor)
  • ground black pepper, to taste
  1. Blend everything together well in a food processor! Chill before serving or eat right away.
  2. Great in a leafy green salad, on crackers, raw veggies, paired with slices of plums or peaches... eat inside a wheat/gluten-free wrap or lettuce wrap... or eat on its own! Very versatile. 🙂
