Garlic and Thyme Pepper Pate

by | Apr 27, 2016 | 5 comments

A great way to make liver palatable, as a lot of people struggle to eat it otherwise. Liver is very high in nutrients, one being B12 which is important for red blood cell formation and cellular function as well as containing B6, Folate, Vitamin A and iron. Liver is a great food to add to your diet if you are anaemic, low on energy and/or fatigued.

Yields1 Serving
 1kg organic chicken livers
 1/2 cup chicken bone broth
 1/2 cup coconut oil
 3 Tbsp ghee or butter
 3 garlic cloves
 2 tsp cracked Changing Habits Pepper
 As much or as little fresh thyme as desired (we used lots)
1

Add all ingredients to the thermomix bowl and heat to 100C on speed 1.

2

When heated begin to blitz the livers on speed 8 or 9 and continue cooking until the mixture goes a light pink/ grey colour. This won’t take long, only a few minutes.

3

Scrape down the sides and blitz again to combine.

4

Taste the mixture and adjust if needed, you can add more salt, butter, pepper, thyme or garlic if needed.

5

Spoon some into a glass jar to store in the fridge. Scoop some into another glass jar and place in the freezer. Scoop the rest out and put into ice cube trays and freeze them. Then once frozen pop out of the tray and place into zip lock bags. You can then add these small pre-portioned liver cubes to meatballs, rissoles, stews, soups, curries etc.

6

Serve with rice or seedy crackers and/or with veggie sticks.

So many store-bought dips contain all sorts or artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. This dip is made purely from beautiful, wholefood ingredients. Great to have with seedy crackers, veggie sticks or even on a nice piece of toasted sourdough!

    Can this be made without a theromomix?

      Hi Annie, yes it can. You can cook the livers and other ingredients in the frying pan and then you will need to blend it in the food processor instead 🙂

    If I cannot tolerate Butter and only a touch of Ghee, what could I use a substitute? Doesn’t really seem right to use a Nuttelex type product but that’s all I can think of right now.

      Hi Ayesha, you can just use coconut oil as a substitute. Enjoy! Sheridan.
