Carrot-Almond-Kalamata Spread – Unlikely Yet Delicious Combination

Sometimes I just play around with foods that I have available or what I am craving at the moment.  One day I had some soaked almonds that I was going to use to make milk but I wanted to make some kind of meatless pate for dinner to pair with some flaxseed crackers I had […]
