Chicken Liver with Lentils

Chickens Livers with Lentils

How is this for frugal cooking, really smacks of the seventies but trust me its lovely . You could add cream at the end but I don’t think it needs it . Next time for an extra iron hit I might just add some spinach.

  1. These are the best. thing. ever! Sooo cheap and soooo healthy – definitely beats Ramen on the second count and rivals it on the first. Bless the ground you walk on, I’m always keen to find palatable cheap eats 😀 Keep up the good work writing the blog, too, I’ll definitely be coming back here!

  2. I am glad I am not the only fan of liver! I adore the flavour and they are so cheap as you say. Lentils add that lovely robust wintery feel. Fantastic.
