Good little vegan spread! I made it using fresh herbs (of course, used more - about 1 tsp fresh thyme and 1 tbsp chopped basil). It is very similar in taste and texture to hummus and would probably work well using chick peas instead of white beans. I added three caramelized garlic cloves, since I had some in the fridge and I'm crazy about their flavour, but the pate was also very good without them. Thanks for sharing!
