This is a spiced vegan pate starter – a really nice way to begin Christmas lunch. It has lots of seasonal flavours to remind you of the traditional Christmas. Being very easy to make it will take no time at all for you to prepare. Entertaining guests can be challenging so this dish can be prepared in advance and refrigerated till the 25th or perhaps used as a nice supper dish on the 24th if you prefer.

1/2 preserved lemon
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of mixed spice

Cover the pecan nuts with boiling water and leave to soak for a few hours till soft .
Add the oil to a pan and fry the spice a little to release the flavour.
