Bean Paté

This recipe comes from The Complete Scoffer by Ronny. It is extremely easy to make and tastes great.


1 tin (400g) cooked red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 cloves garlic, crushed
juice of half a lemon
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp tomato puree or tomato sauce
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chives (optional)
salt and pepper to taste



Either put everything in a food processor and whizz for a minute (you might need to add a little water if it's a bit sticky), or mash beans in a bowl with a potato masher then stir everything else in. That's it. Easy!


For a really smooth, meaty effect, leave out 1 tbsp oil, add in 2 Redwood rashers (diced and fried) and whizz til smooth. Yum!
