This high fiber pate is delicious! The kelp flakes are a great way to get more of the mineral iodine, which is essential for keeping the thyroid running properly.

½ coarsely chopped red onion
2 stalks celery, minced
½ cup tahini
2 whole carrots, grated
½ cup minced cilantro
¼ cup minced scallion
¼ cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons kelp granules

1. Soak almonds, drain and rinse, removing any skins that may have come off.
2. Put the almonds and onions in a food processor and pulse until well blended. Add celery, carrots, cilantro, scallions, lemon juice, and kelp.  Puree thoroughly then remove to a bowl. Keeps several days, covered, in the refrigerator.
