A Sabbath appetizer
Vegetarian Chopped Liver is very frequently served as a Sabbath appetizer in Ashkenazi homes. There are many versions of pareve chopped liver, but this one made of onions, peas, beans, nuts and hard-boiled eggs is one of the most popular. Vegetarian chopped liver is lighter and healthier than real chopped chicken livers, but the taste is quite similar.

1 Tbs olive oil
3 medium onions, sliced
