Healing Heart Hint

You can add spices to change this into your favorite paté.

Try adding any combination of sage, thyme, dill, lots of course-ground fresh black pepper, soy or tamiri sauce, miso, dijon mustard, liquid smoke, or even finely chopped hot peppers. If cost is not an object, for a totally decadent paté, add a smidgen of truffles.
