Italian Chicken Liver Crostini
Liver is a good source for the trace element chromium. It stabilizes sugar metabolism, improves insulin effectiveness, promotes muscle growth, and helps to regulate body weight.
Sprinkle a few drops of walnut oil on the crostini just before serving. It is rich in unsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E and harmonizes perfectly with the flavors of liver, apple and sage.
