Liver: Love it or hate it?

Fortunately, I love it. Because my iron is always low and I constantly need to eat things that are high in iron. The iron from meat seems to get absorbed better, and liver is packed with it!

This time it’s liver with sauted onions and mushrooms, with sweet potato mash and my kind of salad (lettuce free!).

Check out all the recipes below.
