MASTERING THE MOCK CHICKEN LIVER APPETIZER
VEGAN CHICKEN LIVERS? YES! You haven't lived until you've read the short stories of Isaac Bashevis Singer and gone to a milk deli in lower Manhattan where this amazing artist hung out til he was nearly l00. No meat product will be served. Tasting their delicious 'chicken liver pate' will make you wonder why the rest of us still pull toxic organs out of dead chickens. You can have the same rich flavor of the real animal derived product spread on your homemade crackers at way less cost, and way less toxicity to the body with walnut-lentil butter cheese mixtures.
You will even have the minerals and vitamins contributed by other vegetarian ingredients that you couldn’t get with a recipe using a toxic organ pulled out of an already deficient, stressed, caged chicken! In spite of that light toxicity, it has Vit B-12, available in this quantity in no other food so Calf or Cow LIVER once a month is important. Try some of these wonderful recipes at your next gathering. Even try it with real cow liver.
LAURA THEODORE’s JAZZY VEGETARIAN PATE
This tasty dip is a satisfying appetizer year-round, but it’s particularly inviting during the holidays. It truly mimics the texture and taste of traditional pâté. I like to serve this snazzy appetizer with a variety of dippers, such as crudités, pita chips, or whole-grain crackers or flatbread.
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, plus more if needed
3 onions, chopped
1 can (15 ounces) sweet peas, drained
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
4 ounces firm regular tofu, drained and cubed
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
Freshly ground pepper
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until very tender and lightly browned, about 25 minutes, adding more oil or water, 1 teaspoon at a time, as needed to prevent sticking. Let cool slightly.
Transfer to a food processor. Add the peas, walnuts, tofu, tomato paste, and salt. Process until slightly chunky, stopping to scrape down the sides of the work bowl as needed. (Depending on the size of your food processor, you may need to process the mixture in batches.) Season with pepper to taste. Spoon the mixture into a serving bowl. Cover tightly and refrigerate for about 4 hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend.
