Original 'Pinkfarm' recipe, converted to Thermomix
Place chicken livers in a large bowl, cover with milk and refrigerate while you prepare the remaining ingredients.
Place 60g butter in TM bowl and melt at 100 degrees for 1 minute on reverse, speed 2.
Add onion, garlic, bacon & mushrooms, chop for 3 seconds, speed 5.
Sautee for 6 minutes at varoma temperature, reverse speed 1.
Mix in thyme, then add balsamic vinegar and water. Mix together for 10 seconds, speed 3. Set mixture aside in a bowl.
Place 45g butter in clean TM bowl and melt at 100 degrees for 1 minute on reverse, speed 3.
Whilst butter is melting, drain chicken livers and pat dry with paper towel.
Add cleaned chicken livers to TM bowl & season well with salt & pepper. Chop for 6 seconds, speed 5.
Scrape down sides and cook for 9 minutes at 100C, speed 4.
Add onion, garlic, bacon & mushroom mixture, plus 180g chilled, chopped butter to TM bowl. Puree for 1 minute, speed 9.
Place pate into individual containers (makes about 12 average ramekin sized portions) .
Clean TM bowl and melt 100g butter at varoma temperature for 2 minutes, reverse, speed 4. Let butter cool slightly, then pour a thin film on top of each ramekin to seal. Melt more butter if needed for sealing pate. Decorate each with a thyme sprig.
Keeps in refrigerator for 4 days, or in freezer for up to 3 months.
Child Friendly Chicken Liver Pate
Accessories you need
Gently tap ramekin on tabletop to level out pate before pouring melted butter to seal.
I place all portions in the freezer, and pull out as needed. I tend to keep one in the fridge ready as a nutrient dense snack for the kids.
