This organic pate is a party favorite of the vegan and vegetarian crowd. In fact, everyone will love it! The rich, hardy and delicious lentils are seasoned with flavorful ingredients which you can adjust to suit your taste. Have a great party and enjoy!

2  cups brown lentils
4  cups water
1  two-inch strip kombu
1  carrot minced
1  onion, minced
1  clove garlic (optional)
1  bay leaf (optional)
4  sprigs parsley, minced
3  tablespoons arrowroot or kudzu
4  tablespoons water
1  teaspoons sea salt
2  teaspoons shoyu

1. Sort through lentils, removing stones; wash and drain. Rinse kombu and place kombu on the bottom of a pot. Add the parsley, onion, carrot, garlic, bay leaf and lentils. Slowly add the water. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and then simmer for 30 minutes until tender. Very little liquid should remain. Remove the bay leaf.

2. Pour the mixture into a blender and blend until smooth. Return to the pan. Dissolve the arrowroot in water and pour into beans. Add the salt and shoyu; stir gently. Simmer for 15 minutes until the pate pulls away from the side of the pot.

3. The pate may then be poured into a lightly oiled decorative dish such as a circle or star shape mold or into a simple bowl. Let pate cool in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, turn pate out onto a large plate and decorate the plate with raw or blanched vegetables, steamed whole wheat bread or party crackers.
