Not Your Bubbie’s (Grandmother) Vegetarian Chopped Liver

Not Your Bubbie’s Vegetarian Chopped Liver

I’m guessing that your Jewish grandmother, “Bubbie” never made vegetarian chopped liver, only the kind made with real chicken or beaf liver. Many of us today would never even look at the real thing, let alone taste it! Here is my take on a traditonal Eastern European Jewish appetizer (noshable), served on every major Jewish holiday. It is vegetarian, delicious, and very healthy. It uses nuts as the protein so just warn any of your guests who are alergic to nuts to keep their distance. It is also pareve (neutral) so you can serve it with a meat or dairy meal if you are keeping Kosher. You can pull this together in a flash, using a food processor. Feel free to adjust the seasonings as you like: spice it up or spice it down. I add lemon juice to brighten up the flavors. Make sure to chill it for several hours in the fridge. It pairs well with crackers  and veggie sticks or with matzah (on Passover).  The Recipe
