Vegetarian Chopped Liver

User Rating 3 Star Rating (3 Reviews)


Vegetarian Chopped Liver is very frequently served as a Sabbath appetizer in Ashkenazi homes. There are many versions of pareve chopped liver, but this one made of onions, peas, beans, nuts and hard-boiled eggs is one of the most popular. Vegetarian chopped liver is lighter and healthier than real chopped chicken livers, but the taste is quite similar.


  • 6 tablespoons oil
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups peas
  • 1 cup green beans
  • 3 hard-boiled eggs
  • 30 walnut halves
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


1. Fry onions in oil until soft. Add vegetables, and fry until tender. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Put vegetables into a food processor. Add eggs and nuts. Process until smooth.
3. Add oil if dry. Add spices if bland.
4. Chill several hours or overnight in an air-tight container.

Notes: 1/4 pound of mushrooms can be used in place of the peas and beans.

Serving Suggestions: Serve on lettuce leaves. Spread on rye bread.

I tweaked it a little, and love the results., Member anokha68

I decreased the oil by half (watching all the calories I can!) and then used truffle salt instead of regular salt to give it a more earthy, liver-like flavor--it really kicked the taste up a notch.
