Also known as “How the hell am I going to use up all that parsley without buying a ton of ingredients?”. I needed some parsley for a lentil moussaka and this is what came home with me. A mega Italian flat leaf monster! I could not and would not let it go to waste. I also wanted to use it up by incorporating things I already had. Yeah, I could have made salsa verde for steak but there’s an extra (delicious) spend right there. This girl is on a budget.
The crazy part of my life is still ongoing. Little Portuguese Kitchen was an enormous success. Demands were made for another event as soon as possible so we’re trying to find five minutes in which to pour over our diaries and select another two dates.
Throughout all of this, and other extra curricular life bull hockey, I’ve still been stuffing my face. My own kitchen has taken a little bit of a back seat though. There have still been the best meatballs ever (I’ll tell you about them, one day); a deeply savoury lentil moussaka; three different incarnations of saag paneer; my childhood gumbo soup and so much more. For now though, I think the parsley trilogy is a good way to ease back in.
Coming over the next few days – also known as “When I make the time to write them up”..
Parsley and Walnut Pesto – With a little bit of truffle oil. Maybe my new favourite thing.
Parsley Gnocchi – This stuff is incredible, my first attempt at making gnocchi and my first eating of it too.
And all of them are simple as. Promise.
