Black Bean Pate

Black beans are very good for the kidneys, and should be eaten at least once a month. Here a recipe for a black bean pate.
-2 cups of black beans
-4 inches of kombu sea weed
-1/2 cup brown lentils
Soak overnight in 10 cups of water. 
Add 1/2 celery, 1 onion, 1 carrot, 3 pieces of  garlic, 1 inch of fresh ginger, 1 tablespoon of thyme, a few leaves of fresh basil.

Cook all this 10 minutes of high temperature, uncovered, then close the lid, put on lower temperature and leave another 45 minutes on the fire.
Drain as much liquid as possible, and do not throw it away, it is very healthy and very good, so drink it  and do not be amazed if you start sweating; a clear sign that the kidneys are stimulated.
Add then 1/2 tablespoon of miso to the beans, 1/2 table spoon of soy sauce, do everything in the blender, till you get an homogeneous mass.
Put it in a pyrex recipient and bake it for 40 minutes on 200 centigrades. 

This paté  goes very well with the onion marmalade.
