Green-Olive and Bean Pate
This is a hearty, tasty dip or bread-spread or can be put on pasta or raw veg.
Put in the blender:
6 or 7 large green olives, pits removed
3 cloves garlic, peeled
1 can organic salad beans, rinsed
about 1/3-1/2 cup tahini
sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
the juice of 1 lemon
a handful of fresh parsley and tarragon
more organic olive oil than you think wise
Blend on “Puree.” When it is smooth enough to suit you, scoop out into a nice pottery dish and strew with good-quality paprika. Chill before serving.
