Chicken liver with rice

Simple, tasty and cheap. It is a nutritious meal, rich in protein, minerals and vitamins. The cumin, cinnamon and lemon are the twist for this classic romanian dish.

We usually cook it for dinner during the week because it is easy, quick and filling. My kids love it because they see what they eat – liver and rice.

As presented here, with rice, the recipe is not strict AIP. To be strict AIP, make cauliflower rice instead.

    page and see how they write news titles to grab people
    to open the links. You might add a related video or a pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve
    got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.
