Mom's "Vegetarian Chopped Liver"
I've never been a big fan of 'mock' seafood or imitation anything. This, however, I totally love. It not only tastes quite like old fashioned chopped chicken liver, but without the chicken fat, or chicken, liver, or fat! It's actually healthy, though it provides protein via nuts rather than liver. Still has onion and the perfect texture, thanks to mushrooms and hard-boiled egg. Here's the recipe:
- 14 Medium-Large Mushrooms
- 2 Large Onions
- 3 Hard-boiled eggs
- 1/2 cup finely ground walnuts
- 1/2 cup finely ground cashews (unsalted)
Saute mushrooms and onions in canola oil or margarine until soft. [Olive or sesame oil also work well.]
Drain the liquid.
Place all the ingredients in a 'food processor' and/or chop until the consistency of pate.
(Over-blending will make it too thin and lose the texture of the nuts and mushroom, so mix just enough.)
Season to taste with salt, pepper, and paprika.
Chill. Best enjoyed after a day or two refrigerated, so prepare in advance.
Notes: Great with crackers or salads or sandwiches. Can use all walnuts if necessary, but best with the blend of walnut/cashew.
