You asked for it and now it’s here! A delicious way to get liver into your diet without having to battle that liver taste, and get it down your pie hole.
All Hail The King of Nutrient Density
Liver is probably the single most nutritious food available to us. That doesn’t mean you should it every day, but we should definitely be upping our game and eat it more than never. ;)
Unfortunately our society has gotten away from eating organ meats and instead serving it to our pets. Which is great for them but wouldn’t you want to be eating the most nutritious food available and not feeding that to your furbabies?
Many people can’t handle the typical liver flavor and that’s why I was so excited with the outcome of this Loaded Liver Burrito.
This baby is truly loaded.
Jeff & I are all about eating as many vegetables as we can and in the case of these burritos, I made the veggies work to our advantage to help cover up the taste of the chicken liver.
Caramelized onions match up well with the addition of turnip and zucchini and when you combine it with some fresh avocado, cilantro and a heaping hand full of shredded lettuce there is more than a sufficient amount of ingredients stuffed into the Paleo tortilla to easily cover up the taste of the liver.
Speaking of Tortillas
At Paleo f(x) this year I demo’d my Paleo tortillas. If you were able to attend and see it live (or maybe tuned in to the Livestream) I bet you didn’t realize you were going to be watching a comedy show!
It was definitely a comedy of errors with the burners not working and my Paleo burrito shell transforming from burrito to pretzel and finally being served as a taco shell in the end. I made do with the hand I was dealt and everyone got a few laughs. Huge thanks to everyone who came to watch and also for bearing with me to the end! :)
I decided if I do another one next year, I’m gonna be smart and demo a salad! ;)
Choose Chicken Liver For A More Mild Flavor
One of the advantages to using chicken liver is that it has the most mild flavor of all the livers. (Hint: This makes it a tad easier to hide.)
You can use liver from other animals if you want, but be warned you might taste the liver if you do that. If you like the taste of liver, feel free to experiment. Otherwise, you might want to stick with the chicken liver.
