chestnut-pate recipe

 From:    therese@garnet.berkeley.edu
 1 1/2 cups ground chestnuts
 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I used barley flour because my sister has wheat
 1/2 cup nutritional yeast
 4 Tbls lemon juice
 1 grated raw potato
 4 stalks green onion/scallions, thinly sliced
 2 stalks grated celery
 1 grated carrot
 1 Tbls soy sauce/tamari (was 1 tsp salt)
 1 tsp each of basil, thyme, and sage
 1 Tbls fresh or 1 tsp dried rosemary (I used fresh - yum)
 1 1/2 cups warm water
 Sprinkes of cayenne 
 Prepare chestnuts by cutting an X on the flat side with a sharp knife, then
 roasting in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes.  Shell the nuts and chop coarsely
 Measure out 1 1/2 cups then put them in a blender or food processor and grind
 them to a fine powder or paste.  Mix all ingredients in a bowl, then transfer
 to a loaf pan - sprinkle with cayenne and bake at 350 degrees for an hour.
 Cool completely, unmold, slice thin a serve with french bread or crackers.
 Actually, the cayenne thing was a fortunate mistake - I grabbed it instead of
 the paprika!
