This is a very accommodating recipe, you can make it gluten free, use any dried or fresh herbs you like, use any nuts, I have used peanuts and brazil nuts before. I have also used kumara in place of potato.

Something different Mich, thanks.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I have just made these but found them to be very "walnutty", I am going to give them another go over the weekend and perhaps use a different mix of nuts and maybe include a contrasting taste ... chilli or smoked paprika perhaps or maybe put some semi dried tomatoes or some of my man magnet mushrooms in the middle.
