    Mrs B's Note:

    This makes a perfect starter, whether for a dinner party or more casual al-fresco dining. The idea came from "Sarah Brown's Vegetarian Cookbook", but I simplified it with canned ingredients and changed the seasoning. It worked so well that I’ve never made the original recipe! The texture is more of a thick salsa than a traditional pate and is good served with crackers, rye bread, blinis and sour cream. This pate is rich, so a little goes a long way. Sarah Brown is a British writer and presented a programme called "Vegetarian Kitchen" for the BBC.

    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a medium sized saucepan, add the cumin seeds and allow them to sizzle for a few seconds; add the onions and garlic and saute gently for 3-5 minutes, or until soft.
    2. 2
      Add the tomatoes, olives, honey, a pinch of celery salt and honey; mix together and cook gently for 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Pour in the red wine, bring to the boil and simmer for another 20 minutes, uncovered.
    4. 4
      Turn up the heat and stir vigorously until the mixture has reduced to the consistency of a soft pate (or a very thick salsa); this final stage will take about 5 minutes, but cooking time will depend on the thickness of the juice the chopped tomatoes are packed in (and how much it evaporates during the simmering stage).
    5. 5
      Turn into a serving dish and allow to cool; the flavours will intensify, the longer you leave the pate before eating.

      This paté wasn't so unusual, in my opinion anyway, but it was awfully good, more than 5 stars! We ate this on garlic bread as an entrée. Asked my boyfriend what he thought, and he said, is there more? Fortunately for him there was. I used mild black olives for this and I don't recommend using a stronger olive as the flavor would be pretty intense. Thanks as usual Mrs. B!

      An unusual blend of flavours: a recipe which makes for a deliciciously different paté to serve with other patés and dips – and crackers, warm pita bread or vegetable sticks as an entrée or antipasto spread.
