Raw Mock Salmon Pate with Boston Bibb Lettuce

Please don’t be turned off by the name mock salmon! I can tell you the only resemblance it has to salmon is the pretty pink color the pate ends up being. This pate is a really delicious and filling meal plus it is really simple to make. You can serve this on it’s own, with lettuce like I did, with crackers, crudite or chips. You can also use this as a filling in a nori roll or a sandwich. It is really good!



Mock Salmon Pate

Recipe from Alissa Cohen’s Book, Living on Live Foods 

  •  2 cups raw walnuts
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 large red sweet pepper
  • 1-2  large scallions
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.

Chopped “Liver” Spread

If you are celebrating Passover I hope it is a great and liberating time for you! Here is a delicious recipe that my whole family loves to munch on during Passover and any time really. Great with matzoh during Passover or crackers the rest of the year.


Chopped “Liver” Spread

Source: No Cholesterol Passover Recipes by Debra Wasserman and Charles Stahler provided by Vegetarian Resource Group (VRG.org).

  • 3 Tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 lb. mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • Pepper and salt, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. water

Sauté the mushrooms and onion for 8 minutes. Pour into blender or food processor, adding walnuts, seasonings, and water. Blend until smooth. Serve on matzo as a spread. Makes 1 cup

I would recommend using a food processor so it is still a little chunky and not too smooth. If you do over blend, no worries, it is still super good!

Nori Rolls with Ginger Sunflower Pate

Ginger Sunflower Pate

  • 1 cup sunflower seeds, soaked overnight
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 1″ piece fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/8 tsp grated horseradish
  • Salt or tamari, to taste

Blend until smooth in food processor.


Adapted from Cafe Gratitude’s I Am Grateful

  • 2 cups parsnip, roughly chopped
  • 1 med. garlic clove
  • 3 tbs pine nuts
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Process parsnip and garlic in food processor until rice-like consistency. Add pine nuts and salt and process some more.


Red or yellow peppers, julienned Carrots, julienned Cucumber, julienned Thinly sliced avocado A few sunflower or radish sprouts


Place 1 or 2 tablespoons of ‘rice’ mixture on the nori sheet and spread evenly across the bottom third of the sheet leaving 1 inch of space exposed at the bottom. On top of the rice, spread a little Ginger Sunflower Pate, roughly the size of a cigar. Top with red bell pepper, carrot, cucumber and avocado slices. Finish off with a few radish or sunflower sprouts. Fold the bottom of the sheet up and over the filling, and roll the nori tightly using a bamboo mat or your fingers. Wet the top part of the nori sheet with a little water so as to seal the sushi.

If you are cutting…Let the roll sit for about 5 minutes before cutting. Using a sharp knife, cut the nori roll into 5 or 6 equal parts. Use a gentle see-saw motion to make it a perfect smooth cut. Arrange on a plate. If desired, serve with Nama Shoyu, tamari or this dipping sauce in a small bowl.
