Vegan Chopped Liver
Growing up in a Jewish home means eating chopped liver during every holiday!
The taste of chopped liver is very distinct. The main ingredient in chopped liver, besides liver, is onion. The onion basically creates a yummy sweet flavor, and you will not believe how easy it is to make a vegan alternative to chopped liver. The version that I'm making has no aftertaste versus eating real liver. The crunchiness from the walnuts with the sweetness of the sautéed onions combined with the creaminess of the beans, produces a perfect delicious vegan chopped liver. It is so much better for your body than real liver and it's packed with proteins and vitamins. It is great appetizer, it's elegant, and gourmet.
