Peanut Butter Liver Pate
PEANUT BUTTER LIVER PATE
FOOD AS MEDICINE
This pate is one of the best ways to get liver into someone squeamish! The cinnamon paired with the subtle sweetness of apple and creaminess of coconut and peanut butter creates a dairy-free pate that can be eaten on its own, spread on grain-free crackers, or sneaked into smoothies (my approach for miss Stella). Liver is a nutritional super food providing a rich source of choline, folate, zinc, iron, and many other trace minerals and B-vitamins. The nutrients in liver are in their most bioavailable form with no anti-nutrients blocking their absorption which is commonly seen with vegetables. Adding a healthy amount of fats to this recipe not only supports the creaminess but it enhances absorption of vitamins A, D, E and K. Choose organic or pasture-raised livers to ensure nutrients are provided without concern of toxins as liver is the primary detox gland, it is important to nourish with a clean source!
