Beef liver clear of films and ducts, cut into pieces
Boil chickpeas in advance until very soft.I always boil a lot of chickpeas at once, then cool it, pack it in small bags and put it in the freezer. It is very convenient, it is always at hand.
In vegetable oil, fry until transparent sliced onions, garlic and bacon
Add the liver and chickpeas, fry together for about 10 minutes. Do not overcook the liver, it should remain soft and juicy
Add 3-4 prunes (pre-fill them with boiling water and cut)
Simmer all together for another 1-2 minutes, remove from heat, pour in soy sauce, add paprika and pepper
In the form of heat, grind all blender into a homogeneous mass. Try the salt. Soy sauce is quite salty and salt may not be needed at all, but look at your taste.If you're on a diet, stop at this step. Chickpeas have a soft consistency and the pate, due to the addition of chickpeas, becomes very tender and without the addition of butter. Liver and chickpeas are quite dietary products and such a pate without butter can afford even those who count every calorie. Believe me, these 50 grams of bacon in the total weight will not greatly affect the calorie content.
But if you are not afraid of calories, then add a piece (100-150 gram) of butter and whisk again with a blender
In both cases, the pate will be delicious, but it must be completely cooled.Serve simply on toast. You can fill pate profiteroles, tartlets, make canapes that will tell you the imagination.
