Kosher Revolution's Chicken Liver Crostini

[Photograph: Antonis Achilleous]

Chicken livers mashed with onions and schmaltz are a Jewish deli staple that has a tendency to beg the question, "what am I, chopped liver?" Because, well, chopped liver isn't usually all that thrilling. But with chicken livers come a world of delicious possibilities, like these genius Chicken Liver Crostini from Kosher Revolution.

Inspired by the deli counter spread, this version of chopped liver finds inspiration in the Mediterranean, blending the rich livers with caramelized onions, fresh herbs, and a good shake of red chile flakes. Instead of being puréed into a mousse, this one is kept chunky and rustic with bursts of capers and herbs. These crostini are a great way to begin your Hanukkah meal, a playful take on a Jewish holiday standard.

As always with our Cook the Book feature, we have five (5) copies of Kosher Revolution to give away this week.
