That’s right, I used liver and love in the same sentence.

If you’ve never liked liver, do yourself a favor and give this recipe a try.

I found it over at  The Nourishing Gourmet, Kimi has lots of great, budget friendly recipes.

Delicious Liver Pate…..

You’ll need…

    1 pound of chicken livers, washed
    1 cup of minced onions
    Garlic, three cloves, minced
    1 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/4 cup of ghee, plus two more tablespoons (Butter could be used as well)
    8 fillets of anchovies 
    1/4 cup of white wine
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    pinch of red pepper flakes

1-Over high heat in a large saucepan, heat ghee. Add onions when hot, stir, cooking for about 5 minutes, or until softened, add garlic and thyme, cook for a minute or two more. Take off of heat and pour this mixture into food processor or bowl.

2-Heat the remaining two tablespoons of ghee until hot and add livers, cook until done on the outside but still a bit pink in the inside, add to food processor or bowl.

Add 1/4 cup white wine to pan after removing livers. Let simmer just long enough to “clean” the pan.

Add this and remaining ingredients to bowl or processor.

If, like me, you don’t have a food processor, yet, a stick blender works great!

Process until well pureed and all of the ingredients are well combined.

I divided my pate into single, 1 oz servings and put them into the freezer for a quick and easy snack.

Of course, I had to eat some right away, you won’t be able to resist it either!

Enjoy!
