    • The recipe assumes you’re using sun-dried tomatoes similar to these. They’re typically made from smaller grape or cherry tomatoes, and this is calling for 12 of them. I don’t know how that measures out in terms of cups, but I’d guess it’s somewhere around 1/2 to 3/4 cup. Hope this helps!

    • Hi Elizabeth! No I don’t bother, it’s lovely after it’s been roasted anyway and as it gets blended anyway there’s no need for the extra effort, really! Hope you enjoy it!

  1. Wowza! I could easily eat this pate straight outta jar! ;) delicious, and I LOVE the idea of your ‘advent calendar’ Lauren!!! Excited to see what’s coming up next! :) x
