Liver pate is an elegant way to boost your nutrition without dairy on a keto, carnivore, paleo, or any healthy diet. 

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Chill Time: 4 hours – overnight

Total Time: 4 hours, 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup duck fat, lard or bacon fat, divided 
  • 1 small onion diced, optional
  • 2 cloves garlic minced, optional
  • 1 pound ox or beef liver
  • 1 tablespoon raw apple cider vinegar, lime or lemon
  • 1 tablespoon rosemary, optional
  • 1 tablespoon thyme, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, optional

Instructions

  1. Saute the onion in 2 tablespoons of cooking fat over medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes, until transparent and soft. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. Add garlic and continue cooking for another 2 minutes or so until garlic is fragrant and golden in color.
  2. Slice the liver into thin strips. Push the onion and garlic over to the side of the pan and arrange the liver in a single layer. Sear it for 30 seconds to 1 minute on each side.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool.
  4. Transfer liver, onion, and garlic sauté to the bowl of a food processor. Add the vinegar, rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Add 1/2 cup of fat.
  5. Pulse to chop liver. Blend to combine. Add the remaining fat. Continue blending until smooth.
  6. Put into an airtight container and chill in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight.

Notes

Liver pate can be served right away, however, it’s best to let it chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours before serving. If you can, make it the day before so it chills overnight and all the flavors can meld together.

For strict carnivore omit the onion, garlic, rosemary, thyme, and black pepper. ACV is usually ok for most people. Omit if needed.

Keto Peppermint Cream Cheese Cookies

Light and fluffy Christmas cookies made with cream cheese and a hint of peppermint. These festive Keto Peppermint Cream Cheese Cookies melt in your mouth and are sure to please.

Prep: 15 mins
Bake: 18 mins
Chill Time: 1 hr 30 mins
Total time: 2 hrs 3 mins


Servings
: 44
Calories: 75 kcal per cookie

Ingredients

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup butter room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup Swerve granular
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp pepperment extract
  • 2 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • Red and green food coloring
Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.
  2. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or use silicone mats.
  3. In medium sized bowl, beat cream cheese and butter together until smooth and fluffy.
  4. Add Swerve and beat until fully incorporated.
  5. Add eggs and extracts and mix.

  6. In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt.
  7. Add dry ingredients to the wet mixture and stir just until combined.
  8. Separate the dough into three small bowls.
  9. Add red food coloring to the mixture in one bowl. Green into another and leave one bowl without any coloring.
  10. Refrigerate for 60 minutes. If dough is still hard to work with, chill longer.
  11. To create marbled cookie, scoop about 1 tsp of each color dough into your hands and GENTLY roll together between the palms of your hands, forming a ball. Do not over mix or colors will blob together and make a yucky looking hue. Think brown instead of pretty red and green. 😛
  12. Place marbled dough ball on prepared baking sheets and chill for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. You can flatten them a bit before refrigerating if you want more of a cookie look or leave in a ball, so they’re a bit thicker and more cake-like. They will spread a little, so don’t put them too close together. Dough tends to warm up after handling it, so refrigerating helps some with the spreading.

  13. Bake 18-20 minutes. Cookies should be light in color and will seem a bit under-cooked, but do not over bake.
  14. Cool cookies on the baking sheet for about 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling. Cookies will firm up yet remain soft and a bit cake-like.
  15. Store in a tightly sealed container for up to two weeks, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Recipe Notes:

The secret to marbling the dough without mixing the colors is to chill it thoroughly. The dough is super sticky and can be difficult to work with when at room temperature.

Lamb ribs with chermoula

‘Shut the gate’ is one of the funniest ways to express when something is so fantastic

that there is nothing left to say on the matter. Well, I reckon this lamb rib dish is one of

the best I have ever had the pleasure of cooking and eating; so, yeah . . . shut the damn

gate! In all seriousness, though, ribs are the tastiest cut of lamb as they have an amazing

layer of fat on top of the meat. When cooked slowly in spices until the meat is falling off

the bone, and finished with a zingy chermoula, not much can top them.

LAMB RIBS WITH CHERMOULA

1.5 kg lamb ribs

3 tablespoons lard or other

good-quality animal fat

sea salt and freshly ground

black pepper

Chermoula

1 large handful of coriander leaves, chopped

1 large handful of flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped

1 large handful of mint leaves, chopped

2 garlic cloves, chopped

1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin

1 ½ teaspoons ground coriander

1 teaspoon smoked paprika

½ long red chilli, deseeded and chopped

3 tablespoons lemon juice

125 ml (1/2 cup) olive oil

sea salt and freshly ground

black pepper

To make the chermoula, combine the herbs, garlic, spices, chilli and lemon juice in a food processor and process to a paste.

With the motor running, drizzle in the olive oil and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Preheat the oven to 150°C (130°C fan-forced).

Rub the ribs with the fat and sprinkle with a generous amount of salt and pepper.

Heat a large flameproof casserole dish over medium–high heat.

Add the ribs in batches and seal on all sides for 4–5 minutes until browned.

Return all the ribs to the dish, cover with the lid and roast in the oven for 3 hours, or until the meat is tender and falling off the bone.

Cut the ribs into pieces, drizzle over the chermoula and serve.

Lamb chops with anchovy aioli

One of the more unusual flavour combinations I was introduced to when I started my chef

apprenticeship about 30 years ago was the marriage of anchovy and lamb. The salty nature

of anchovies works so well with lamb, that I have used this combination in many ways since

that first encounter. Try this classic surf and turf for yourself, I know you’ll be convinced.

LAMB CHOPS WITH ANCHOVY AIOLI

Serves 4

4 x 180 g lamb forequarter chops

sea salt and freshly ground

black pepper

1 pinch of dried mint

½ teaspoon ground cumin

3 tablespoons coconut oil or good-quality animal fat

Anchovy aioli

6 jarred salted anchovy fillets, rinsed and patted dry, finely chopped

1 tablespoon finely chopped dill fronds

1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley leaves

250 g (1 cup) Aioli (see recipe below)

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Place all the anchovy aioli ingredients in a bowl and mix to combine. Taste and season with more salt and pepper if needed.

Season the lamb chops with salt and pepper and sprinkle over the dried mint and cumin.

Heat the coconut oil or animal fat in a large frying pan over medium–high heat. Add the lamb and cook, turning occasionally, for 6–7 minutes for medium–rare (or cook to your liking). Transfer to a plate and allow to rest for 5 minutes, keeping warm.

Serve the lamb chops with the anchovy aioli.

AIOLI

Makes 470 g

6 roasted garlic cloves

4 egg yolks

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice

420 ml (1 cups) olive oil

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine the garlic, egg yolks, mustard, vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil in a glass jug. Using a hand-held blender, blend, working the blade from the bottom of the jug slowly to the top, until thick and creamy. Alternatively, place the garlic, egg yolks, mustard, vinegar and lemon juice in a food processor and process until combined. With the motor running, slowly pour in the oil in a thin, steady stream and process until the aioli is thick and creamy. Season with salt and pepper. 

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
