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