as I couldnt get any chicken livers this Passover I decided to make this-as is healthier anyway, it was a hit!! it looks like the real mcoy, smells like it, texture was great and even almost...tasted like it!! my 70year old uncle couldn't believe it! and it was so easy to make! Thank you and will make it again. (oh, I also added a garnish of a grated hard boiled egg partly mixed thru..and some parsley sprigs)

My expert chopped liver lovers ate this right up. And it is so much better for you than the real thing! This cooked as per the instructions and was so easy. I garnished with some sliced olives and Italian parsley. I know that I will be making this again.
