Posted in on the 6th June, 2055

1 c Almonds, blanched & toasted
3 ea Garlic cloves
1 md Onion, coarsely chopped
2 tb Olive oil
12 oz Mushrooms, halved
1/2 ts Salt
1/2 ts Pepper
1/2 ts Thyme
Chop the toasted alomnds in a food processor until they resemble very fine breadcrumbs. In a large skillet, saute the onion & garlic in the olive oil until the onions are tender. Add all the remaining ingredients. Saute for approximately 5 minutes. The mushrooms need to be limp. Transfer this mixture to the food processor & process with the almonds. Chop well until you have a thick paste. Place the pate in a shallow dish & surround with crackers, melba toast, pita chips or French bread slices.
