Hello! Sorry for the late blog post! It was a crazy day but I’m finally writing this down!
During my last days back home, I did this amazing nut, seed and oil free pâté that was just too good to be true! I was eating fresh coconuts almost everyday, making tons of different things with the meat and water that I’ll have to get to that at one point, I just need to get organized! Gosh, so many recipes to share!
I love how coconuts are super versatile, from raw to dried, to desserts, pastas and even a pâté! Yes they are that awesome!
So one day, while I was experimenting in the kitchen, I had this idea of making some filled tomatoes but with what? So that’s when this unique “Coco-nutty Indian Spice Pâté” came to life!
It is super flavorful, I did not used any salt, and all the people who tried it thought it was super tasty!
It is very simple to prepare, and I’ve served it in many different ways, but to begin with, I’m gonna show you how to make these beautiful and unique filled tomatoes!
Gastrawnomica’s -Indian Spice- Coconut Pâté
Yields around 2 cups
Meat from 1/2 large fresh coconut
2 big round tomatoes, only the flesh
1 tsp dried Italian herbs mix (rosemary,basil,thyme,oregano)
1 large carrot, peeled and chopped
1 small piece of red onion
1 small handful fresh cilantro leaves
1 small handful fresh fennel leaves
1/2 – 1 tsp Simply Organic curry powder (add more or less depending on your taste)
Put all the ingredients in your high speed blender until smooth and chunky. Beautiful!
Now that you have your amazing pâté ready, you can spread over anything and everything! Yeah, that good! But if you want to keep reading about the filled tomatoes, stay with me!
