Soya Bean Pate
Drain the beans, cover with fresh water and bring to a boil.
Boil hard for 10 minutes, reduce heat, cover and simmer until tender, about 2 hours, depending on the age of the beans.
Drain and set aside.
When cooled, mash.
Heat olive oil and sauté the onions until very soft, 10 minutes.
Add to the mashed soya beans.
Stir in the tomato paste, olives, parsley, salt if necessary (remember that the olives already add a salty flavour to the rest of the ingredients) and sesame seeds.
Spoon into a serving dish and chill for at least 30 minutes before serving.
Serve with crackers or toast sliced into fingers.
