Never did I ever think I would eat liver.. But when your body is screaming at you to get better you give it what it needs. My body needed liver, or more specifically vitamin A. One of the tell tail signs of low vitamin A is chicken skin. I had those nasty dry bumps all over the back of my arms. I started eating this recipe twice a week and they disappeared! Then I did a little experiment I stopped my routine and they came back!! This recipe worked for me along with coconut oil at night. Amp up your vitamin A intake and start feeling better!
- 1 calf liver
- 1 tbsp coconut oil
- 2 springs fresh thyme
- 3 sprigs fresh or dried rosemary
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 an onion chopped
- optional: 2 slices bacon (helps get you used to liver, adds a little extra familiar flavor) just be sure it’s organic nitrate and antibiotic free!
* I used to make a different variation when I was low fodmap.. Omit the garlic and onions and add dill and the greens of spring onions 🙂
- cooking liver, can be a little intimidating if you’ve never done it. Take a shallow fry pan and fill it about half way with water
- add chopped onion, 2 sprigs rosemary and thyme 1 minced garlic clove and liver cover and set heat to med-high
- while liver is cooking about 10-12 mins, add tbsp of coconut oil , garlic clove, salt, pepper and leftover Rosemary to blender or food processor * if adding bacon: cook bacon in frying pan while waiting for liver
- Once liver is no longer pink, cut it open and check, transfer liver, onion, garlic and juices (if any left) into blending device. *hint the more juices, the liquids your pâté will be
- blend it up until you have a uniform consistency, I like mine more thick so I tend not to add to much of the leftover water.
- *bacon step : After removing pâté from bleeding device sprinkle with crumbled bacon.. Yum!
- can be eaten hot or cold depends on how hungry you are after you make it!
Pâté is traditionally eaten cold and as spread in sandwiches or on crackers and bread. I eat mine with celery or cucumber slices! Don’t be afraid to try any dippers you like!
