Super Fertility Recipe: Chicken Liver Paté


alt

I am gearing up for a new opportunity that I can’t announce yet but am very excited for. It involves my passion; Nutrition for Fertility and Pregnancy, so I am obsessed with the topic!

I came across this Super Fertility recipe today and had to share it with you! I have no idea where it came from so I apologize for not giving credit. This recipe is rich, decadent and might even make you feel fancy :)

Organ meats are particularly good for fertility because, provided they come from healthy animals they are an amazing nutrient dense food. Chicken livers are rich in folate, iron, vitamin K, B vitamins, zinc and of course protein. The strong flavor of liver takes a little getting used to but the herbs and wine help to balance the taste. Indulge in some Chicken Liver Paté  once a week for a fertility nutrient boost!

Chicken Liver Paté

Ingredients

1lb. chicken liver (pastured/organic…should be very dark in color)
1 small onion, choppedalt
1/2 cup red wine
2 - 4 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 sprig fresh rosemary, stem removed
2 sprigs fresh thyme, stem removed
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup butter (pastured/organic)
Sea salt to taste
2 tablespoons cracked black pepper (optional)

Preparation:

Sauté liver and onions in a couple of Tbsp of butter until the livers are browned and onions tender.

Add wine, garlic, mustard, herbs, & lemon juice: cook uncovered until most of the liquid has gone.

Transfer the mixture into a food processor and blend to a smooth paste along with the rest of the butter; 1Tbsp at a time until it reaches a smooth, creamy consistency….you don’t want it to be crumbly.

Add sea salt to taste.

Put paté  in a shallow dish to refrigerate before serving.

Press cracked pepper onto the top of it or garnish with a sprig of fresh thyme or rosemary (optional).

Enjoy spread on celery, carrots, cucumbers, peppers or any other veggies you want to dip!
