Home Made Pate with Hazelnuts

Posted 2016-12-04 by finyfollow

Home made pate tastes quite different to most of the bought ones, and is surprisingly cheap to make.

Chicken livers are high in protein and a rich source of iron, folate and Vitamin B12.

In this one I have used free range chicken livers, hazelnuts, hard boiled eggs and cream. I don't think this is the traditional way, but it was very good.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 12 servings

Ingredients
500 g free range chicken livers
50 g butter
1 shallot
1 clove garlic, crushed
100 ml cream
3 tbsp dry sherry
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
¾ tsp oregano
½ tsp marjoram
½ cup hazelnuts, chopped finely
Salt and pepper

Method
  • Melt the butter in a frying pan and cook the shallots until they are soft.

  • Add the garlic and the chicken livers and cook until the livers are just pink in colour inside, and not overcooked.

  • Take the frypan off the heat and stir in the herbs, chopped eggs, dry sherry, and cream.


  • Puree this with a stick blender or similar until it is a smooth paste.

  • Season with salt and pepper as needed, and add most of the hazelnuts.


  • Transfer it to a serving bowl, and add the leftover hazelnuts on top to garnish.


  • Keep in the fridge till needed.

  • I ate it as a meal on toast.
