A quick easy recipe for the perfect supercharge ingredient, village for mama liver cubes.
The recipes in the village for mama book have been designed to be handed out to friends and family members. It was so important that you felt comfortable asking your not-so-food-savvy uncle, sister, neighbour or grandad to cook them for you without feeling intimidated. Each recipe is simple and easy to follow and the ingredient list is should be accessible to all. Our beautiful recipe developer, Maddy Trueman, made a conscious effort to limit the use of expensive ingredients and instead prioritised what is convenient and easy to find at your local market or shop.
We decided to add a supercharge option to the recipes to offer optional additional ingredients to supercharge with extra nourishment. These liver cubes are the perfect freezer staple to stir through recipes without altering the taste and giving them an extra nutrient boost.
SHOPPING FOR INGREDIENTS
It is really important to source organic livers for this recipe. Non organic liver can be highly toxic. Most health food shops will sell organic livers in their freezer section or alternatively you look online for an organic butcher in your area.
You can use homemade bone broth, fresh store bought bone broth or bone broth powders or concentrates. A few brands we love are: Cherry Tree Kitchen, Nutra Organics, Best Of The Bone, and Grevity RX.

NOURISHING A NEW MAMA
Liver is so nutritious! It is actually one of the most perfect foods for postpartum. Liver is a great source of very bioavailable nutrients, meaning the nutrients contained in liver are easily absorbed and utilised by the body. It is especially high in vitamin A, needed for mucous membrane health and repair, perfect for healing tissue damage from childbirth. Liver is also a great source of healthy omega 3 fats, great for brain health, breast milk production and passed on to the baby for brain development. It’s a great source of iron, folate and B12, nutrients essential for rebuilding and replacing blood cells after childbirth.
