Walnut Pâté Apple Sandwich

One of our favorites as well as many others – it is quick, easy to prepare and of course delicious – Enjoy! 🙂

Walnut Pâté:

  • 1 cup walnut halves
  • One 15.5-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsps extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Sandwiches:

  • 16 slices whole-grain bread (I used Oroweat Sandwich Thins)
  • 4 large jarred roasted red bell peppers; rinsed, drained and halved
  • 2 large organic Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced vertically
  • 2 cups packed baby spinach

Make the Pâté:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spread the walnuts on a baking sheet and toast for 7 to 10 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally, until lightly browned and fragrant. Cool for 10 minutes.
  • Transfer the toasted walnuts to the bowl of a food processor. Add the beans, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, and 1/4 cup water. Purée until smooth, about 45 seconds. Season with salt and pepper.
