This is a great snack for little ones, especially if you are on the GAPS diet or following a Paleo lifestyle. I developed the recipe to get my little girl to eat more liver. Now that I have realised how easy it is to make divine pate with the Thermomix, I make it all the time! Makes 12 kid size serves or about 8 generous adult serves. However if entertaining, this makes 4-6 ramekins the size you would buy normally so one batch would be enough for at least 20 people on a platter with veggie crudities and crackers.
