MOCK CHOPPED LIVER (Cashew, Onion, and String Bean Pate)
This spread resembles chopped liver in an uncanny way, but its delicious
flavor is something else and will not be off-putting to vegetarians who don't
care for imitation meat flavors. Serve with raw vegetables or with matzo
- 1 1/2 tablespoons safflower oil
- 1 1/2 cups chopped onions
- 1 cup toasted cashews
- 1 cup steamed fresh string beans, cut into 1-inch lengths, or 1 cup thawed
- frozen string beans
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a small skillet. Saute the onions slowly over moderately low
heat, stirring frequently, until nicely browned.
Combine the onions with the remaining ingredients in the container of a food
processor. Process until smoothly pureed, scraping down the sides as needed.
Store in a jar until
needed, and bring to room temperature before serving.
