Pumpkin Seed Herb Pate

I have recently started getting into the "raw" thing and with such beautiful blogs out there like golubka finding inspiration isn't hard. My efforts in grasping the techniques of raw food preparation have not been without error and I have certainly had some shockers. This pate is so easy, tasty and versatile - just make sure you remember to soak the pumpkin seeds. The pate stretched from green tacos and wraps for lunch to a dip with veggies for a snack and a side with a salad.

Pumpkin Seed Herb Pate

2 cups of pumpkin seeds (soaked for at least 2 hours)
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves (any other fresh herbs can be used)
1 clove garlic
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 tablespoon of tahini
juice of 1 lemon
pinch of sea salt
pinch of cayenne or black pepper
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil

Blend all ingredients together in a food processor or blender until smooth and dip like
Wrap in leaves of your choice or use as a dip for veges.
