<email@example.com> In a large skillet, melt margarine. Add onion,
garlic, and mushrooms. Saute until tender but not browned. Add
tarragon, stir until it is softened. Pour mixture into a bowl of food
processor. Add remaining ingredients. Process until mixture is smooth.
Add cheese if you prefer a more spreadable consistency. Spoon into a
serving bowl. Top with garnish of your choice. Makes 1-1/2 cups.
People who do not like ordinary pate seem to love this one. Vary the
herbs and substitute the vegetables as you wish. Serve with water
crackers, thick slices of crusty French bread, thin slices of whole
wheat bread, or unsalted whole wheat crackers. May be frozen.
VARIATIONS: ~ Substitute other vegetables for the mushrooms (maybe
broccoli.) ~ Substitute 1/2 t fennel for the tarragon and 1 c whole
pecans for the almonds ~ vary the flavor by using other seasonings
such as basil, oregano, dillweed, curry powder, or nutmeg.
