Red Bean Pâté

This recipe is adapted from The Complete Scoffer by Ronny. It is extremely easy to make and tastes great.


  • 400 gm cooked red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tomatoes (preferably peeled)
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chives (optional, you can substitute chives with spring onion greens)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Either put everything in a food processor and whizz for a minute (you might need to add a little water if it’s a bit sticky), or mash beans in a bowl with a potato masher and then stir everything else in.

Serves 4.
