Vegetarian Liver Recipe (vegan, actually)

I've been making this recipe for years, and it's been a big hit with family and guests.

It is vegetarian, so I'm sure it does not taste like REAL chopped liver, but I haven't eaten chopped liver in over 2 decades! It's our favorite vegetarian version, though.

I hope you'll try it out and let me know what you think!

Vegetarian Chopped Liver

1 cup water
1/2 bag frozen green beans (about 400g, I think)
1/2 bag frozen peas (also about 400g, I think)
olive oil
1 onion, chopped
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 cup mixed nuts - whatever kind you like. I used sunflower seeds and roasted cashews this week but the week I took pictures it was some other mix. Before I was allergic to almonds I always used an almond, cashew and hazelnut mix. That was great!
(optional - 2 hard boiled eggs)
salt and pepper to taste

Place green beans, peas, and water in a pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 min.
(watch to be sure you don't boil out the water, add water if needed)
Set aside to cool
Heat olive oil in skillet and saute onions and garlic with oregano flakes, until caramelized and very fragrant.
Combine peas, green beans, some of the cooking water, onion/garlic mixture, nuts, salt, pepper and eggs if using them, in the bowl of your food processor. Pulse to puree. Add more cooking water or regular water if needed.

Transfer to a container and refrigerate before serving. Serve with the garnish of your choice and crackers if you like!


  1. I make mine with eggplant or zucchini, fried onions, walnuts, hard boiled egg, salt and pepper.

    1. yes , eggplant ones are very popular! But I like my version much better. :-)
