Walnut Pate

Great appetizer served with crackers and raw vegetables; one of our standard party dishes. People love it and try to guess what’s in it!

2 T olive oil
1 c minced onion
1 t salt
3 c chopped fresh broccoli (crowns and upper stems)
4 hardboiled eggs
1/2 c chopped walnuts
3-4 T white wine OR 4 t lemon juice
3-4 T mayonnaise
pepper to taste
Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add minced onion and salt and saute until it begins to brown. Add broccoli and cook until tener (about 10 minutes more). Transfer to blender or food processor, add the rest of the ingredients and grind into a uniform paste.
