Mock Chopped Liver

From The World of Jewish Entertaining
By Gil Marks

8 servings


The World of Jewish Entertaining Chopped liver, one of the best known of all Jewish dishes (probably thanks to repeated references by Jewish comics), is a favorite Ashkenazic appetizer served on the Sabbath, at festivals, and on other special occasions. For these more health-conscious times, here is a vegetarian version. The meaty flavor of the mushrooms contributes to the deception, as does the liverlike grayish color. And unlike mock livers made from beans or peas, this version is perfect for Passover and, to my palate, is tastier.


2 tablespoons unsalted margarine
   or vegetable oil
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 pound mushrooms, finely chopped
About 1/2 teaspoon salt
Ground black pepper to taste


1.Melt the margarine in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and sauté until softened, about 2 minutes.

2.Add the mushrooms and sauté until the moisture is evaporated, about 10 minutes.

3.purée the mushroom mixture. Season with the salt and pepper. Serve with crackers, matza, or fresh vegetables.
