One of my best childhood memories is going camping. I love camping and I taught my son to love it too since he was 1 year old. I put a tent in the garden and spent the night in it. Now, he can’t wait to go camping.
I told you about our food in that period here: Green bananas. It was bad. Now, we have everything we want, but I noticed is not so healthy anymore. They add so many chemicals in the food that is outrageous.
Anyway, when we went camping we used to have sandwiches for the road. They were just a few types of sandwiches: with cheese, butter or pate.
I loved the ones with pate. Add some tomatoes and cucumber from the garden and they were perfect.
I decided to make homemade pate because the one in the shops are not very healthy.
I tried with cow and chicken and I can say they are both great.
Here is the recipe for chicken pate.
- 500 g chicken livers
- 1 onion cut in pieces
- 1 garlic clove smashed and peeled
- 80g melted butter
- Ground pepper
In a saucepan, put the livers and the onion and add water to cover them. Bring to simmer. Reduce the heat to low and cook about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally. Check that the livers are barely pink inside. I tend to overcook them a little for my little one.
Remove from the heat and let it cool.
In a food processor add the livers and the onion. Process until they become a puree. Add garlic and butter and then season with salt, pepper and turmeric.
Put the pate in a jar and refrigerate until firm. Serve it chilled.
You can cover the pate with a layer of melted butter and refrigerated for up to 1 week. You can freeze it and you will have it for up to 2 months.
Is great for breakfast on toast or when you go hiking on a sandwich.
