Organic Fortnight - Simple Mushroom Paté

It’s Organic Fortnight, apparently. To celebrate, I made this simple, yet delicious, Mushroom Paté to celebrate. Here's the recipe:-

300g mushrooms, wiped and chopped
2 medium onions, peeled and chopped
1 tin pinto beans, drained
3 cloves garlic , peeled and crushed
1tblsp olive oil
Salt and pepper
Sprigs of marjoram and thyme

Simply heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan, and sauté the onion for five minutes.  Add the garlic and chopped mushrooms and cook until just tender.

Stir in the beans and heat through.

Add freshly chopped herbs, ground nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste.

Blitz in a food processor.  Put into ramekin dishes and chill.

Serve with toast or crackers and wedge of lemon.

I love it when food is simple to prepare, tastes great and is good for me, don’t you?
