Jenny wanted a tofu dip to serve with veggies. Here is one which has been 
a great success at my parties. It lives at my web site -

Hope this is suitable. Anyone who tries it, please let me know.


Mushroom Pate

I have only tried this with firm tofu. It's better if the tofu has
not been frozen. You will need a blender.

Makes enough for 2-4 sandwiches. Triple the quantities if serving at a

1/2 small onion
1 garlic clove 
225g (8oz) large flat mushrooms
25g (1oz) fresh breadcrumbs
100g (4oz) firm tofu
1/4 tsp ground cumin or nutmeg

1. Thinly slice the onion, finely chop the garlic, and halve and slice
the mushrooms.  

2. Put the onion, garlic and mushrooms in a wide covered pan over low
heat and cook gently for about 20 minutes until the mushrooms have
given off a lot of water. Make sure the heat is very low to
start with, and stir occasionally. Add a very little water if it is
dry at the start, and reduce the heat even further if it seems to be
going dry later on.

3. Cool slightly, then put about 3/4 of the mushroom mixture in a
blender with the breadcrumbs. Crumble in the tofu and add the cumin,
then blend until smooth.

4. Stir in the reserved mushrooms and season to taste with black
