Raw Recipe: Romanesco & Parsley Pesto via @NataliaKW

Romanesco, a cauliflower relative, is so strikingly beautiful–a brilliant light green in color, displaying spiraling points in a perfectly natural pattern.  The sacred geometry of this plant alone is reason enough to purchase and display it as part of a centerpiece.  The flavor is slightly milder than traditional cauliflower and is quite nice raw.  It shines in this salad along with local green beans, scallions and cherry tomatoes.  Tossed with a lemony parsley pesto, you will be thrilled that you gave this new vegetable a try.

 

Serves 6 as a side salad

For the Salad:

  • 2 cups thinly sliced Romanesco florets
  • 1 cup green beans, bias cut to 1 inch in length
  • ¾ cup sliced cherry tomatoes
  • ½ cup chopped scallions

For the Parsley Pesto:

  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 large bunch of flat leaf parsley (about 6 cups of loosely packed leaves)
  • ½ cup cold-pressed olive oil
  • 1 cup raw walnuts (preferably soaked for 4-6 hours and dehydrated 12 hours until crisp)
  • ¾ teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 

Prepare all of your salad veggies and toss in a large bowl. To prepare your pesto, place the garlic cloves in a food processor fit with the S-blade. Process to chop. Add the lemon zest and parsley and process again. You may need to add the parsley 1 cup at a time depending on the capacity of your food processor. Add all remaining ingredients and process until all of the nuts have been finely chopped and all ingredients are well combined. Pour over the veggies and toss well to coat.  Serve garnished with lemon wedges.

  • It’s in fact very difficult in this full of activity life
    to listen news on TV, so I just use internet for that purpose, and obtain the latest
    news.

  • very nice post, i certainly love this website, keep on it

  • It was certainly one of the weirder things I’ve experienced,and I had no concept there was all that stuff going on outside the restaurant prior to and throughout the ridiculousness.

  • This website is amazing. I will tell about it to my friends and anybody that could be interested in this subject. Great work guys!

  • Thanks for the share. My pappy used to say “Enjoy life. There’s plenty of time to be dead” :)

  • Exercise and diet without thought and feeling alignment is simply pushing poop up the proverbial hill.The male fascination with female breasts is as old as the stars themselves.They become overly shy and unsure of their worth as a person.

  • Hello! I’ve been reading your website for a while now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from New Caney Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the excellent work!

  • It’s great of you to blog about your story. Love it when people keep it real.

  • I’d have to check with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I enjoy reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to comment!

  • This website is amazing. I will tell about it to my friends and anybody that could be interested in this subject. Great work guys!

  • Valuable info. Lucky me I found your web site by accident, and I’m shocked why this accident didn’t happened earlier! I bookmarked it.

  • Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  • You’ve got very worthwhile points! p.s. good web site.

  • Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  • I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
