Add a clove of garlic to your chopped veggies if you like. You can substitute cayenne pepper if you like more spice. You can use canola oil- but I prefer coconut or olive oil. Have fun! Be creative

It's ok to use raw (not toasted) too. If you prefer a smaller amount get 'em from the bulk bins at Whole Foods. (Tip or storing any nuts: keep em fresh in the fridge or freezer for a few months)

You can add broth or water til the consistency is to your liking. I add just a dash or 2 of curry  powder and plenty of lemon pepper - which contains salt. Err on the side of UNDER-seasoning...

You can always add more after it sits in the fridge overnight. The flavors will continue to develop, so it will taste even better tomorrow. (Tip: for a dinner party make it at least 1 day ahead) enjoy
