Macadamia Nut and Sundried Tomato Mash Recipe

macadamia nuts

Okay I’ll admit it- this is my favorite nut pate in the world! I am pretty obsessed with it, so that when I make it I polish it off pretty fast. I made this recipe once on an E! segment, and afterwards the producers, who hadn’t had lunch yet, gobbled it right up. It is particularly grand on my taco salad recipe!


Macadamia Nut and Sundried Tomato Mash Recipe
  • 1 cup of raw, unsalted macadamia nuts
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup sundried tomato, chopped
  • ¼ tsp. Celtic or Himalayan sea salt
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped parsley (any variety)
  • Black pepper to taste
  1. Place the macadamia nuts in the food processor with the lemon juice, and blend well.
  2. Add the chopped sundried tomato and sea salt, and blend again. The mixture will be moist and “crumbly” but not wet at all.
  3. Spoon the mixture into a bowl, and mix the chopped parsley throughout the whole mixture.
  4. Enjoy by scooping on top of a green salad (again, spinach is highly recommended!), once you’ve eaten a good majority of the salad first. Or wrap in collard greens with sprouts per the instructions under Bruce’s Pinenut Cheese. Right before serving I like to add some fresh cracked black pepper to the top, which seems to give it an extra bit of spark.

    Do you soak the macadamia nuts overnight first?

    Thanks for all your posts! I read your book about 6 months ago and still keep it standing proud in the kitchen for daily inspiration. I’ve been doing a green smoothie for about 5-6 years but I always found myself so lost and confused with food and what to eat every time I finished a new “health/natural” book…until I read your book!

    Great recipe. Will add this to my site. Try this recipe with Ahualoa Farms fresh macadamia nuts. Best Hawaii macadamia nuts around, in my opinion. So ono!

    I’m combing your website looking for things to make which I already have – maca. nuts and sundried tomatoes have been lingering in my fridge! Thanks Kimberly! I have your book, but sometimes it’s easier to just go on the Internet and look for your recipes – I appreciate that you make them so accessible!!!
