Mixed Nut Spread or Dip

After seeing Laura's lovely Nut Pate this weekend I wanted to make some with the nuts and seeds I already had here at home.

I used
1/4 cup each of flaxseed/linseed, roasted cashews and the 5-seed mix I like to add to bread.
1/2 pecans, walnuts and sunflower seeds.
about 3/4 cup of vegetable stock

I used the blender to mash them all up but should have used the food processor as it would have been much roomier and quicker too. The taste is delicious, we'll have it on toast etc but it will make a lovely dip with a little more stock to thin it out. The smaller jar is in the freezer to keep it fresh or to give to Mum if she'd like it.

Thank you kindly Laura and Happy Birthday to Bob-a-dog today.....give him a cuddle from us!


  1. Oh Sue this sounds so yummy!! Thanks for posting this, I shall add it to my list of recipes to make as it sounds just like something we would like :) Regards, Ruth

  2. Hi's so easy to make your peanut butter etc without the additives that commercial nut butter usually have.
    Good for the dentally challenged like me too! ;)
