Raw

img_9452Here 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!

cf827d59-d101-46d8-858f-01e47d22ea9cMy 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.9A3511BE-EB41-46E1-AD11-BDE016BFC439.JPGCARROT HUMMUS!!!!~ YUMMY!!!!a7cb7040-0af0-48e5-a900-ecb94440729d1OK….. so here we go with my favorite salad EVER!33df9e6c-af9c-43c0-a240-266653e92edeDon’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.20a4d439-d5f4-4251-885c-41f35155fb1d

Combine with Fennel slices.

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.435FAD15-82D2-478D-8528-B7B93C706A48Of course butter, salt and pepper, and cream are an essential ingredient.8D15F200-9543-4725-9E5C-9DAEC6209D93(1)

    Sorry to hear you weren’t feeling well. Hopefully, Spring brings health and happiness. Going to try your raw asparagus salad right away! Tomorrow is my daughter’s birthday and Mom is making dinner as usual. It will be a great addition to a Cauliflower Parmesan and Green Goddess roasted chicken. Hurray!
