Chicken Liver Pâté

Chicken liver pate with sesame rounds

There are very few foods with a better nutritional profile than liver, which is sometimes known as nature’s multivitamin.

Liver is packed full of nutrients like vitamins A to E, magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, zinc and much, much more. This organ meat is great for building up your immune system and protecting yourself from infection. For anyone with a chronic health condition like Candida, liver can be a very valuable addition to your diet.

Many people don’t enjoy the taste of cooked liver by itself, but chicken liver pâté is much more palatable. In my household we eat chicken liver pâté every week, often with a cracker like these sesame cauliflower rounds. In fact, there is almost always some pâté in the fridge.

Here is a delicious chicken liver pâté recipe that incorporates onions, pepper, thyme, and coconut milk. The onions and coconut milk even have some antifungal properties to keep your gut balanced and healthy. Enjoy!

    crackers! do you have a recipe for the crackers?!!? that is something i really miss.

    1. The crackers in the image are actually Sesame Cauliflower Rounds. I’ll be posting those here within the next month or two. In the meantime, there is a great cracker recipe in one of my ebooks if you have them!

    Sounds delicious! Haven’t thought of pate’ for a long time and will try this. Growing up we ate it with a sprinkle of raw chopped onion on top.

    Sounds delicious. Do you also have a recipe for those yummy-looking crackers? I assume, they are candida-diet friendly.

    1. You’re the second person to ask! They are Sesame Cauliflower Rounds and I will be posting the recipe within the next month or two 🙂

    Iv’e made several of the recipes on this site (rutabaga patties, Buckwheat muffins, waffles). They are amazing! Just made the waffles today. My family Loved them and the apple sauce. Delish!

  6. I can’t wait to try this! I put in an order for chicken liver at my local organic meat place. Mmmmm.

    I have heard original ryvita is ok for people on the candida diet, is that true? And instead of coconut milk, I guess veg stock would be fine wouldn’t it?

    Cheers 🙂

    1. Lisa Richards says:

      Hi Jem, I typically recommend Candida sufferers to avoid products that contain gluten (that would include Ryvita). As for the vegetable stock, yes that is absolutely fine, especially if homemade. If its store-bought, check the ingredients.

  8. Polly says:

    Would it be ok to freeze the pate? If I make a full batch I would prefer to spread it out over two weeks (no pun intended) then eat everyday. Thanks.

    Do we use coconut milk from a carton or tin?


    1. Lisa Richards says:

      From a can 🙂

    This was so good!!! I used green onions instead of shallots, and parsley instead of thyme, but man even just using what I had was so so good!!
