Raw Pumpkin Seed Pâté

Raw pumpkin seed pate


Featuring a mix of raw pumpkin seeds, toasted sesame seeds and sunflower seeds, this pâté really couldn’t be any simpler, tastier and quicker to make. I didn’t soak any of the seeds but you certainly can if you prefer – simply alter the amount of water needed.

Raw Vegan Pâté
Recipe type: Snack
Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 2
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 1½ tbsp lemon juice
  • 3-4 tbsp water
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • garlic powder (optional)
  • ¼ tsp tumeric
  • 1-2 sundried tomatoes in oil, drained + chopped
  1. Place pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds & sunflower seeds in food processor and process until they are finely ground to a flour (apx. 30 seconds in a vitamix on low speed)
  2. Transfer the seed mixture to a bowl and add tumeric, sundried tomatoes, lemon juice & water. Mix well with a spoon until well combined and sticky in consistency.
  3. Add salt, pepper & garlic powder (if using) to taste and add more water if needed.
  4. Serve cold or at room temperature and store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

I love the versatility of this pâté and have included a few serving suggestions below.

  • serve in baby gem lettuce cups with freshly cut cucumber sticks.
  • serve as filling in zucchini roll ups (I love this idea I recently saw on Pinterest) for a fun appetiser.
  • serve in nori rolls with other vegetables and/or brown rice for a different take on sushi.
  • serve with crackers and vegetable sticks (this pate is especially delicious on my chia seeds crackers and flax seed crackers).
  • serve on a salad for an extra filling boost of plant protein and fibre.

  4. Does this pate turn out thick or like a hummus ? I was thinking to serve in seaweed
