Makes 10 servings


  • 500g liver
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp psyllium husk powder (or flour)
  • Salt, pepper


  • 150 g sour cream (cream cheese or creme fraiche would also work)
  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1 small onion (sauteed)


  • Mix all ingredients in a blender for the liver pancakes and then fry in a non-stick skillet (to save oil).
  • While the pancakes are cooling, make the filling, grate carrot, cut onion, and sauté until soft. 
  • To assemble, spread the sour cream on every pancake, top it with filling and so on.  
  • The batter should resemble pancake batter, not too runny but also not too thick.
  • Add fresh parsley or dill to the filling and decoration to make it look more festive.
