This pepper pate couldn’t be simpler to prepare and is surprisingly delicious. The flavour improves after a few days of chilling. Serve with toasted gluten-free bread or crackers

  • 1 small organic onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp. fresh organic thyme leaves plus some for garnish
