Vegan Pate

Since my husband is vegan I was struggling to find a replacement for a regular sandwich we used to eat before. The base was always cheese or some kind of meat. I thought there is no many options left but for my surprise there is. And here is a great recipe for a VEGAN PATE

You will need :
2 glasses of cooked jellow or red lentils 
1 glass of cooked millet grain
2 onions 
100ml of olive oil plus few spoons of oil for frying
2/3 tablespoons of light soy sauce 
3/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/2 teaspoon savory
1/4 teaspoon lovage
pinch of nutmeg
2 whole cloves
2 bay leaves
2 grains allspice
salt and black pepper
1. Dice the onions

2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the onions along with bay leaf allspice and cloves. Fry until the onion is soft and delicate , then remove and discard spices .
3. Add the onions to the cooked lentils together with cooked millet , oil and soy sauce and a pinch of salt and the rest of the spices. Blend with a blender until smooth , taste and season to taste with more soy souce and spices , if needed.
4.Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Transfer the pate butter into a small baking tray ( I bought small loaf baking tray)  lined with baking paper. 
5. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes. Then let cool overnight in the baking tray , in the morning , remove pate from the tray.
6. Enjoy!
