Chopping Board
Food Processor
Large Mixing Bowl


1 lb of your favorite nuts (I like pecans.)
1 lb carrots, peeled and chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 Tbsp sweetener (honey, very ripe banana, raisins, etc.)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1-2 Tbsp poultry seasoning or other seasoning (My favorite is Herbamare.)
2-3 Tbsp nutritional yeast (optional)
sea salt to taste


  1. Grind the nuts in a food processor and place in a large bowl.
  2. Combine the remaining ingredients in the food processor.
  3. Add the “carrot/onion” mixture to the ground nuts and combine well.

If the mixture is not firm enough, add one or two or the following thickeners: dill weed, dried garlic, dried onion, parsley flakes, nutritional yeast, ground flax seeds.
