       Yield: 4 servings
  
       1 c  Soya beans, soaked
       1 md Onion, finely chopped
       1 tb Olive oil
       2 tb Tomato paste
       2 tb Black olives, pitted &
            -- chopped
       2 tb Parsley, chopped
       1 pn Salt
       1 tb Sesame seeds, lightly
            -- toasted
  
   Drain the beans, cover with fresh water & bring to a boil.  Boil hard
   for 10 minutes, reduce heat, cover & simmer until tender, about 2
   hours, depending on the age of the beans.  Drain & set aside.  When
   cooled, mash.
   
   Heat olive oil & saute the onions until very soft, 10 minutes.  Add
   to the mashed soya 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) & sesame seeds.
   
   Spoon into a serving dish & chill for at least 30 minutes before
   serving. Serve with crackers or toast sliced into fingers.
