I'm not sure where this came from -- I just recently unearthed it from a stack of index cards. It's excellent served on crackers or rye toast. It's quick, easy, and vegan!

Good but bland. Quite easy to make. I'm going to try it adding finely chopped crisp bacon. Instead of water, I used sherry. Also, I added 1/2 stick of butter and 2 oz. cream cheese, and a splash of Tabasco. Kind of made it a smoother pate'. It might be better if you take the time to caramelize the onions. Thanks for posting.
