Homemade pate (II)

I used the Multicooker provided, but we can use a thicker pan, preferably a tuci one.

We wash and clean the liver of any debris. skins, etc. We clean and wash the vegetables. We cut the julienned onion, the leek into small slices, we press the garlic a little. We grate the carrots and the beets.

We put a few tablespoons of hot oil, I connected the appliance, I selected the Fry program for 12 minutes and I put a few tablespoons of hot oil. Put the onion, leek and garlic to harden with a pinch of salt, leave for 3-4 minutes, mix with a spoon and add the carrot and beets. Leave for another 3-4 minutes and add the washed and cleaned livers. Let the livers harden, then pour the milk and add the spices. Select the stew option, let it boil until the milk decreases and a thick sauce is formed. We taste to see if we need more salt and then we turn off the cooker / eye and let the composition rest a bit. Remove the bay leaves, then turn on the blender and mix the whole composition until you get a fine paste. Turn off the blender, add the diced butter and mix until it melts and blends well.

Put the composition in various containers, pour a tablespoon of olive oil on top, sprinkle a little salt and pepper and let cool until ready to serve.

It's a treat! We can serve it on bread baked with garlic or with freshly sliced ​​onions.

Homemade pate with mushrooms

Those who know me know that I prefer home-cooked dishes. Many times I prepared homemade pate, I gave up the commercial one for a very long time. Of course, not everyone appreciates liver, or a pate with an intense liver taste, but you can diversify, you can add milk, butter or vegetables. This time, I cooked a pate with mushrooms. Very good, mushrooms give flavor in any dish, if you like it of course.

This moment coincided with the challenge of our friends from SunFood and I responded with pleasure with our friends, Merisor and Rita, although I confess that it was not easy at all to find cans in stores, it was really a complex adventure :))))

So, I reconciled my family and I responded to the challenge and I made a tasty homemade pate with mushrooms.

Transfer the composition to a glass bowl, preferably level, then pour a few tablespoons of olive oil to cover the pate on the surface and not dry, a little pepper with lemon, a small sprig of rosemary and let cool, covered.

    We wash and clean the chicken livers very well, then we put them in a bowl together with the milk. We leave them for about an hour, then we drain them well and discard the milk.

    Put the liver, eggs, sour cream, onion, oil, salt (about a tablespoon) and pepper to taste in the blender jar.

    Mix very well until you get a fine composition and then pour it into clean and sterilized jars.

    • 750 ml white wine
    • thyme
    • salt and pepper
    • sm & acircnt & acircnă liquid

    How to proceed for the two appetizer recipes: Homemade pate and salted biscuits

    To prepare salted biscuits, sift the flour and mix it with the baking powder. Add the egg, the cold butter, cut into cubes, the chopped greens and the finely chopped cheese and knead a finely chopped dough, which we leave to rest, cold, for 30 minutes, covered with food foil.

    After this interval, remove the dough from the cold, spread it on the floured table with a thickness of 7-8 mm and cut the biscuits with a glass or a circular shape.

    We transfer the oven tray to the baking sheet and bake for 35-40 minutes at 180 degrees.

    To prepare liver pate, chop the onion and garlic and fry in olive oil with a little butter. Add to the livers, and when they turn brown, add the wine and bring to the boil until the alcohol evaporates. Season with salt, pepper and thyme. Pass through a blender together with the rest of the butter and a little cream and liquid, so that we can match the creamy texture of the pate.

    The pate is then cooled to stabilize its texture.

    Chef Munti's advice to keep the pate longer in the fridge is to melt a little butter and spread it over the pate. This will create a barrier against alteration.
