Chopped Liver
  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil divided

  • 2 medium white onion sliced thin

  • Kosher salt

  • 1 pound mushrooms sliced (button or crimini)

  • 4 hard boiled eggs or 1 cup soft tofu for vegan version

  • 1 cup walnuts plus more for garnish (toasted adds extra flavor!)

  • Freshly cracked black pepper to taste

  • Minced chives for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

  • In a large sauté pan or Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add onion slices and 1 teaspoon salt.

  • Sauté for about 10 minutes until onions are soft and starting to brown, stirring often, and then turn down the heat to medium low and sauté until onions are golden brown and caramelized, about 45 minutes. Stir often. You want the onions to stick a little so they color, but if onions start to burn, add a little water or more olive oil (or wine!) to deglaze. Add 1 more tablespoon olive oil and mushrooms and sauté for 10 more minutes until soft but not mushy. Let cool.

  • Put onions mixture, eggs, and walnuts, in a food processor and pulse until ingredients are combined and uniform and it looks like chopped liver; add a little olive oil if it's not coming together. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Chill for one hour or until ready to serve and garnish with walnuts and chives. Serve with matzah crackers and veggies.

One Pan Roasted Mushrooms with Lemon Butter Sauce

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Just wash and de-stem your shroomies first. Use any kind you like. Reza’s always used classic white shroomies. So that’s what I used.

  2. Preheat oven to 450-degrees.

  3. Take a large sautee pan or baking pan with edges and place two tablespoons of butter on it. Place in the oven and allow the butter to melt, about 2 minutes.

  4. Place the mushrooms cap side down in the pan. Drizzle with lemon juice from half a lemon and season with salt and pepper. You can also add some garlic powder if you like.

  5. Place in into the oven for 10 minutes.

  6. Then flip over the shroomies and continue cooking for another five minutes.

  7. Then just scoop them up and place into the bowl with plenty of bread for dipping into the yummy sauce! If you made this in a nice looking sautee pan just go ahead and serve it in that.
