Walnut paste/pate is extraordinary. It's actually used in traditional Persian dip made from crushed walnuts, pureed green olives and pomegranate molasses - and let me tell you folks - it is heaven!! Hummus has got nothing on this dip.

If you are ever in the Bathurst and College area in T.O., there is a fantastic resto called "Pomegranate" that serves amazing Persian dishes. And yes, there are some vegan dishes for you to try too.

What an elaborate meal Vincent! I think I'm going to make the pomegranate soup now too, with my normal blender.

I puzzled over "evoo" the first time I read it, too!

Marta, do you live in Toronto? I've walked by that place many times but haven't eaten there yet.
