    For those of us with more walnuts than we know what to do with, I have just been sent this by a friend, not made it yet, let me know if you try it :yes:

    Walnut Pate recipe
    Ingredients
    2 oz margarine
    1oz chopped onion
    2 oz Gramm Flour or Wholemeal Flour
    2 Teaspoons Tomato Puree
    2 Teaspoons Lemon Juice
    6 Fluid oz water
    5 oz ground walnuts
    1 Teaspoon chopped Thyme
    Salt and Pepper
    Method
    Melt margarine and fry onions gently until soft. Add gram flour, mix well and cook for 2 mins. Add water. Cook slowly for 3-4 mins [de-lump!] Stir until it forms a stiff paste. Add all other ingredients. Put in loaf tin in the fridge to harden. NOTE: It is years since I made this. Having read the instructions I feel that I would add the tomato puree to the onions and cook briefly before adding the flour.

    The INVISIBLE onions @enid, surely you knew that (Witchy Poo said in an exasperated voice scuttling off to find out how many blimmin onions there should be in this half finished recipe that she did not read properly) :wacko:

    If our kind neighbour gives us another bag of walnuts I’ll have a go at this too, instead of making loads of walnut cakes as I did last time! Just need the info on the onions Witchy. :good:

    I am waiting to hear back from the friend who sent me the recipe, she seems to have become invisible too. Maybe she is off with the invisible onions and the invisible gold. Sorry. Will post the complete version as soon as I receive it, will be posted in invisible ink. :wacko:

    Found these online, they might give a hint for the amount of onions to use

    355ml / 176g walnuts (soak for at least half an hour to soften – rinse and discard water)
    30ml / 28g raw soy sauce (nama shoyu)
    80ml / 53g white onion
    1 medium-sized carrot
    1 celery stalk
    0.5ml / 0.7g sea salt

    It’s all thrown in a food processor, adding soy sauce last, once the mixture is smooth.
    1 cup soaked raw walnuts
    1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon tamari
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    Dash salt
    1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
    1 tablespoon minced onion

    Again thrown in a food processor but stirring in onion and parsley after.

    So I reckon we can get an idea between them to sort out the amount of onion for WP’s recipe, which I like the sound of better as it cooks the onions :-)   :good:

    Don’t why but, despite editing twice to make it happen, it still insists on not leaving a space between the end of the first recipe and the start of the 2nd – you get the gist! :yes:

    We have been given a load of Walnuts so I might try this too :)   and being a great believer that recipes are only a guide I’ll make my own mind up about the onion quantity and if they are needed at all.

    If everyone followed every recipe to the letter then nothing would evolve  :wacko:

    try your own methods peeps  :good:   you might even improve on the original  :good:

    I have found the missing onion and put it in the original post, also you can apparently use wholemeal flour rather than gramm flour.

    That one looks good as well Fruity :good:

    Yes @slartibartfast, I quite often pick out bits from a recipe and make the rest up myself, makes for some interesting cooking! :yahoo:

    Let me know if any of you try making this, I am going to have a go soon :yes:
