Cashew nut, citrus and herb pate

- Soak raw cashew nuts in the grapefruit juice (or orange juice) for 2-3 hours.
- Drain the cashew nuts, reserving the juice.
- Place nuts in a food processor with garlic, parsley and the lemon zest.
- Blitz together with ¼ cup of olive oil and enough of the citrus juice to form a smooth, creamy paste.
- Season to taste and serve with vegetable crudites or pita or bagel chips.
The longer you soak the nuts up front, the creamier the end result will be. To add a little zing to the mix, try adding other fresh herbs, capers and a few green olives.
