Avocado Pate

20 mins (prep 20)
11 ingredients
2 servings
This is a mild flavored pate so don't expect a guacamole spread. The recipe is easy to double for buffets or a party. It is very important to get good tasting and textured avocados for this dish. They should be ripe but firm, I once made this and the avocado was over ripe, the taste was bland and it would not firm up properly. The amounts given are not extremely vital, there is room for a little more or a little less of most ingredients, but in this case I would go easy on the garlic. I serve this with toast, herb or homemade melba toast, and sometimes substitute the nuts with very finely chopped red bell pepper. For a dinner party I put the pate in individual little molds, this amount makes then about 4 servings. If you have some leftover, its nice on bread with some slices tomato.
