Passover side dishes: chicken livers and charoset

Don’t say yuck until you’ve tried them ;-)

Chopped Chicken Livers

1 lb chicken livers, drained
2 large onions, chopped
1-2 cloves of garlic, mashed
Olive oil

2 eggs, hard boiled
Salt and pepper

Saute the livers, onions, and garlic in oil until the livers are cooked completely through. Keep the heat down so that the vegetables don’t burn. Put all the ingredients into a food processor in batches, and process until it is a paste. Serve on salad or as a spread for matzo.


2 tart apples
1/2 c walnuts (or almonds)
1/2 t cinnamon
1 T honey
1 T sweet Passover wine

Core the apples, but don’t peel. Chop apples and walnuts either by hand or in food processor until they are all finely chopped. Stir in the rest of the ingredients by hand to make a chunky textured mixture.

Charoset is used as a part of the Seder ceremony, but is also really good on matzo at any time. Increase the recipe as much as needed.
