LOOKING for: looking for vegetable pate recipe?

I used to buy this stuff. It was either called vegetable pate or vegetarian pate, I can't remember which. I got it at Safeway. It came in a tin and I think it was near the shrimp and tuna. It has been a long while since I have seen it. It was great on crackers and had great spices in it. Are any of you familiar with this product? I can't remember the brand name. Do any of you have any recipes that sound similar to this? I tried to buy it the last time I went to San Francisco to visit my Mom, but the store didn't carry it anymore. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

My natural food store here in San Francisco has a couple of varieties of veggie pate. It's also available at Beverages and More - I don't know if you have this chain in your area. I will check the ingredients when I'm there next.

A friend of mine used to make vegetarian pate out of canned mushrooms and walnuts, blended in a food processor. It was wonderful, and you'd never guess the ingredients from tasting it. Sorry, I don't have the exact recipe, but I believe those were the only two ingredients so you could probably figure it out by experimenting.

Hi, this isn't exactly what you were looking for, but might make a tasty substitute.
