Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 can white beans (1 can = 15.5 oz)
  • ¼ cup sun dried tomatoes in oil
  • ½ lemon (juiced)
  • 2 tbsp parsley, fresh (or frozen, chopped, use less if dried)
  • 2 tbsp chives, fresh (or frozen, chopped)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • salt and pepper to taste

Optional

  • 2 tbsp tomato puree (The recipe above has a dark, almost nutty flavour. If you like your patè a little sweeter then add some puree for this effect.)
  • Worcestershire sauce (vegetarian) (A few drops also combine nicely with this. Make sure you grab an anchovy-free, vegan one)

Instructions

  • Roughly chop the onion and garlic.
  • Fry them in oil for a couple of minutes until lightly browned. When ready, throw both into a large mixing bowl.
  • Drain and rinse the beans and place them in the bowl.
  • Juice the lemon.
  • Finally, add the lemon juice and rest of the ingredients and using a hand blender, give it all a good blend. Alternatively throw it all in a food processor instead. That’s it! Serve as you like, hot wholemeal bread goes great.
