Liver Pate with (Keto) Soda Bread

Hi! I’m back earlier than usual, but since research has been a bit slow (no more math courses to blame), I’ve gotten busy in the kitchen!

I LOVE liver. It gets a bad rap, but it really doesn’t deserve so much hate. It’s versatile, cheap and incredibly nutritious. A mere 3oz serving has 23g of protein along with over 300% the RDA of vitamin A, 84% the RDA of iron, plenty of vitamin K, B-6 and B-12.

Of course, nutrition doesn’t really matter if taste is off right? Well, here are some tips:

  1. Soak the liver in milk, or better yet, buttermilk, for at least 2 hours. The dairy helps neutralize the flavour and even better helps the liver absorb butter
  2. SEASON, SEASON, SEASON- duh….

So now that I’ve convinced you to try liver, let’s get cooking!
