  1. Oh wow Elisabet, this Beet Ginger Pate sounds like all my favourite things rolled into one. And this is interesting alternative to rice -- soaking the almonds and then dehydrating them again. Do you have a recommendation for how best to treat these when I don't have a dehydrator? My new oven only goes as 'low' as 175F :-( but I would love to try it! Thank you!

  2. Hi Helene,

    I soak and dehydrate them only when the almonds are truly raw! If you don't have a dehydrator turn the oven to the lowest temperature and keep the door slightly open.
    Soaking can help to digest food easier and to absorb the nutrients. It starts an enzymatic reaction within the nut/seed/grain breaking down complex carbohydrates, fats and proteins into simple starches, fatty acids and amino acids.
    You can use also only soaked almonds, peel the skin off and blend on speed 9-10. If you have only regular by hand, relax and use these to try the recipe. I made these delicious rolls at a friends house, using unsoaked almonds :-).
    Here is another version without beets:

  3. Wow, das sieht ja echt toll aus! Ich liebe Sushi, aber nur ohne Fisch. Deine Variante liest sich wirklich lecker!

  4. Hi Elisabeth, The nori rolls were amazing. I love the ginger beet pate. Everything combined was truly delicious and simple. I bought the raw nori sheets and my family had a hard time with the smell. What do you use?

    Thanks, Kim

  5. Danke Sylvia, ich mag auch nur die fischfreie Variante :-).
