In a large skillet, melt margarine. Add onion, garlic, and mushrooms. Saute
until tender but not browned. Add tarragon, stir until it is softened.

Pour mixture into a bowl of food processor. Add remaining ingredients.
Process until mixture is smooth. Add cheese if you prefer a more spreadable
consistency. Spoon into a serving bowl. Top with garnish of your choice.
1-1/2 cups.

People who do not like ordinary pate seem to love this one. Vary the herbs
and substitute the vegetables as you wish. Serve with water crackers, thick
slices of crusty French bread, thin slices of whole wheat bread, or
unsalted whole wheat crackers. May be frozen.

VARIATIONS: ~ Substitute other vegetables for the mushrooms (maybe
broccoli.) ~ Substitute 1/2 t fennel for the tarragon and 1 c whole pecans
for the

almonds ~ vary the flavor by using other seasonings such as basil, oregano,

curry powder, or nutmeg.
