A Tasty Vegan Pate

 it looks like it says payyyyyt but I'm too lazy to punch
in the circumflex and accent so live with it...

This is my go-to pate for sandwiches...
1 C. cooked garbanzo beans
1/4 C. firm tofu, crumbled
1/2 tsp. cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
1- 2 tsp. tamari
2 chopped garlic cloves
2-3 Tbsp. oil
1/4 C. to 1/2 C. broth
2 tsp. spicy brown mustard
2 Tbsp. bacony bits or other such thing, reconstituted
optional: 2 tsp. hoisin sauce

Blend all of this until thick but fairly smooth,
adding more liquid and seasoning as needed.
Really the best way is to get it started without
the oil, then drizzle the oil into it while it
blends like you are making mayonnaise. No don't
take the whole top off of your blender or food processor,
use the special hole silly.
More vinegar can be nice in there, or a different one or
lemon juice.
Looks gnarly of course but tastes great.
