Mock Chopped Liver

2009 Nov/Dec

Mom used to make the real stuff, from chicken livers, but since chicken livers have been deemed unhealthy she uses the following:


  • 1 lb. green beans
  • 3 fist-sized onions, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 1 lb. walnuts
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. pepper


Steam the green beans. Sauté the chopped onion in the butter until translucent. Purée the beans and onions with the walnuts and the salt and pepper until the mixture is the texture of pâté. Cool for at least three hours. Serve in celery, or with crackers.
