Chopped Liver

May 9, 2009 | by Irma Charles

A classic Jewish food… and a veggie version, too.

Chopped Liver

  • 12 oz broiled liver
  • 1 large onion
  • 8 oz fresh mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 – 4 hard boiled eggs

In a food processor chop the onion, mushrooms and garlic. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan and add the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Fry until brown. Process the hard cooked eggs separately. Process or chop the liver. Mix all the ingredients together. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Salt & pepper to taste.

For Chopped Liver to taste like Bubbie's used to, use chicken fat instead of olive oil.

Mock Chopped Liver

  • 2 cans cut green beans – drained
  • or 1 kilo fresh green beans
  • 1/3 cup walnuts
  • 3 pieces black bread
  • 3 hard boiled eggs
  • 1 onion – sauteed

Sautee the onion. Place all ingredients in the food processor with the steel blade. Chop until the desired consistency is reached. I actually like it on the coarse side. Salt and pepper to taste.

I have found that fresh green beans are much tastier. When I am not able to get them I use fresh or frozen broccoli or peas.
