1 cup soy beans -- soaked
1 medium onion -- finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 tablespoons black olives -- pitted and chopped
2 tablespoons parsley -- chopped
1 dash salt
1 tablespoon sesame seeds -- lightly toasted

Preparation / Directions:

Drain the beans, cover with fresh water and bring to a boil. Boil hard for 10 minutes, reduce heat, cover and simmer until tender, about 2 hours, depending on the age of the beans. Drain and set aside. When cooled, mash. Heat olive oil and sauté the onions until very soft, 10 minutes. Add to the mashed soy beans. Stir in the tomato paste, olives, parsley, salt if necessary (remember that the olives already add a salty flavour to the rest of the ingredients) and sesame seeds. Spoon into a serving dish and chill for at least 30 minutes before serving. Serve with crackers or toast sliced into fingers.
