Mock Chicken Liver Pate … our family favorite worth remembering!

Such a delicious appetizer/starter with lots of options for ingredients. Our family recipe traditionally uses canned sweet peas, chopped walnuts and grilled onions.

Many of my friends have different ideas on its preparation; Mushrooms, Onions and Walnuts or even Green beans, Onions and Walnuts. I have made them all…second favorite is using Mushrooms.

Mock Chicken Liver Pate

A favorful appetizer as a start of any meal. I usually prepare this when my kids are home for the holidays. Easy to make and the recipe goes a long way.

  • Saute onions in the oil (or vegetable broth) until browned
  • In food processor, chop peas, walnuts and eggs *Do not puree - leave mixture somewhat grainy.
  • Add onions with a bit of the oil
  • Blend a few seconds until the mixture is well blended but you can still see a few flecks of egg white (no worries about this if you omitted the eggs) and brown onions.


Melissa's Modifications:
This is a delicious recipe that can be served with any veggies as a dip, Mary's Gone Crackers(my favorite), matzo, or any cracker for that matter. I have even used it as a spread on a sandwich with lettuce and tomato. Give that a try with the leftovers (if there are any) the next day on two slices of thin Dave's Killer Bread, 21 whole grains with seeds. Very yummy!
