Green Bean Chopped "Liver" I (P, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 8 as an appetizer

1 pound green beans
3 large eggs, hard-cooked
2 large onions, chopped
1/2 cup walnuts; optional
salt and pepper to taste

Cook the beans until tender.

Sauté onions slowly in a non-stick pan (using oil or broth or water, as you prefer), until they are caramelized (deep brown). A pinch of sugar can aid in this process. (They will really add a lot of flavor if done this way.)

Grind everything together, and season to taste with salt and pepper. I use the food grinder attachment to my Kitchen Aid mixer, but this could also be done by hand with a "hockmesser" or in a food processor.

Poster's Notes:
You can use frozen green beans if fresh ones aren't available or are too expensive. I usually leave out the nuts (too much fat), and sprinkle a few pine nuts on top of each serving as a garnish.
