Did you say CHICKEN LIVER????
Yes, yes I did. Something I never thought I would be writing a post about, yet alone EATING. But since working with my amazing nutritionist, health coach and trainer, I have learnt the massive benefits of truly eating for my body, health and wellbeing on an even deeper level. She is the one who influenced me to start eating liver.
Liver is very high in protein, Vitamin A and helps strengthen the immune system and keeps it strong. It is also high in B Vitamins and iron.
I have been very hesitant to eat it, because it’s liver… But after again being inspired from Amanda, I created this very easy, delicious dish. It’s chicken liver mixed with chicken breast and some herbs. The combination of all of these mask the fact (and taste) that you are eating liver and the best part is that you get all the benefits without tasting it!
P.S Only get ORGANIC liver if possible and make sure it’s grass fed and finished.
CHICKEN LIVER PATTIES
(Makes roughly 10 small-medium sized patties).
340 g organic chicken breast mince
400 g (ish)- I just asked the butcher for a handful of chicken liver (organic)
2 sprinkles of mixed herbs
2 sprinkles of Italian herbs
1-2 pinches of pink salt
1/3 C fresh leek fronds (leafy top of a leek)
1 tsp coconut oil for non stick pan (more if needed)
1. Pre heat stove top to medium- high (depending on device).
2. Place mince and liver in a food processor and blend until combined.
2. Add in remaining ingredients and blend until combined.
3. Grab a large spoon and scoop patty sized mixture together, place in heated pan and cook about 10 mins on each side.
4. I like to cut a couple down the middle at the end to check that they are cooked. They should be a brown, cooked colour- but I’m sure you all know when chicken is cooked!
5. Then serve with whatever you like!
- Serving suggestions:
Baked veggies. My favs are: purple sweet potato, zucchini, carrot, beetroot baked with pink salt, some herbs and coconut oil.
A side of mashed avocado, lemon and salt.
A fresh salad.
- Then drizzle with some olive oil and squeeze with some lemon or ACV and enjoy!
