Here is the story. I was pretty sick for a month or so; GI stuff and at the same time my computer died. I needed to order a new one. I have never stopped cooking and photographing, so I have posts in the pipeline. The following one is about a salad that blew my mind. It was raw and unexpectedly excellent!
My first recipe was a carrot hummus. The carrots were roasted in the oven with olive oil and salt and pepper and then ground up in a food processor.CARROT HUMMUS!!!!~ YUMMY!!!!OK….. so here we go with my favorite salad EVER!Don’t get me wrong I like Asparagus…..But this was a whole new experience. It was literally the best salad I have ever had and it was RAW! I bought some very fresh Asparagus, snapped the ends off the bottom and then the head off the top. Then shaved the skin off the asparagus, finally the asparagus on a bias into small pieces.
Combine with Fennel slices.
Add Radicchio leaves
Then I added I added the homemade dressing; olive oil from Morocco with some white wine vinegar,Parmesan cheese and salt and pepper as dressing. Simple. Doesn’t need much.Now for main meal ” steak and potatoes” with a mushroom sauce.
I had 2 beautiful Filet Mignon in the freezer. I decided to defrost and use and make with some Chantilly Potatoes.
Which you have seen before.
So the steaks I defrosted then seared in a cast iron pan and finished in the oven. My guest liked the meat more well done, which I did but then in the oven.Of course butter, salt and pepper, and cream are an essential ingredient.
Mash potatoes and then whip.Add some paprika and butter to top before baking off in oven until top is slightly brown.Saute mushrooms in olive oil until browned. Add red wine salt and pepper. Slice Steak and top with mushrooms.
