  1. Whizz the nuts, herbs, lemon juice and garlic in a food processor for 2 minutes or until well combined; season to taste. If the mixture clumps together, pulse to separate, before continuing.
  2. Add 3-5 tbsp water, whizzing between each addition, until the mixture reaches a spreadable consistency. Spoon into a bowl and scatter over the extra herbs. Serve on toasted bread with sliced radishes, if you like.
