Perfect Pâté Recipe




Yield 6 +

A delicious Pâté recipe that uses fresh liver, spices, herbs and butter for a creamy and velvety Pâté that can be served on homemade crackers or vegetables.



  1. Note: You can soak the livers in milk or coconut milk for a few hours (up to overnight) and rinse before making this recipe for a more mild flavor if desired.
  2. Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet. Add finely minced onion and garlic and cook on medium until translucent- 3-4 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, trim the connective tissue off of the livers. Add livers to pan and sprinkle with salt, pepper and thyme and add the bay leaf if using, Brown livers for 6-10 minutes until cooked on the outside and barely pink on the inside.
  4. Add the Brandy or Scotch and cook until it thickens, 2-3 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat and let cool for about 5 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Put in food processor or blender and puree until smooth. While blending/pureeing, add the additional butter and cream (if using). Add more salt and pepper to taste, if desired.
  6. Once mixture is completely smooth, remove from blender and put in ramekins or a glass container and cover tightly. Put in the fridge for at least 5-6 hours or overnight (preferred) to harden and let flavors meld. Serve with homemade grain free crackers or vegetables. I like to make vegetable chips by cooking turnips and beets in coconut oil and serve on that.
  7. Enjoy!
