Radish Leaf Pesto

Last spring feels like quite a while ago, when I (and we) were all wondering about our food supplies running out, rediscovering things in our jumbled pantries and packed-to-the-gills freezers, and also being a lot more conscious of food waste. On the other hand, it’s hard to use everything up. But I did my best. I’m the kind of person who finds a 1-inch (3cm)…

Last spring feels like quite a while ago, when I (and we) were all wondering about our food supplies running out, rediscovering things in our jumbled pantries and packed-to-the-gills freezers, and also being a lot more conscious of food waste. On the other hand, it’s hard to use everything up. But I did my best.

I’m the kind of person who finds a 1-inch (3cm) cube of pesto lurking in the back of the freezer, then goes out and spend time at the market shopping for the vegetables, then comes home to wash and chop them up, while the beans are soaking to make soupe au pistou. Then I realize I forgot to buy more basil because I only have a little cube of pesto (or more accurately, pistou) and it’s not enough, so I head back out to buy more basil, cooling my heels in line behind madame, who is requesting that the vendor show her each oignon and carotte for careful examination before she buys it. When all is said and done, and the soup has been served that evening, I find myself with a little bit of leftover pesto when all is said and done, which goes back into the freezer. And the cycle begins again.

Recipe | Brussel Sprout & Grape Galette

There are some things you shouldn’t say to a cook. You know what one of those things is? “Interesting…” That was what my husband said when I told him my idea for this recipe. “A Brussel Sprout & Grape Galette! Maybe with some walnuts, too, and a balsamic reduction. And Parmesan cheese!” I thought it was ingenious. I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with the idea, in fact. But my husband’s response? “Interesting…” “Interesting…” never means interesting. It’s not so much the word “interesting,” you see, it’s more that trailing off at the end: “Interestinnnggg.” Interesting is the polite way of saying, “What in Sam Hill are you thinking?” (Yes, Sam Hill. I’m an 80-year-old man, didn’t you know?) But brussel sprouts and grapes actually do go well together. A few months ago, I made a roasted brussel sprouts and grapes recipe from Whole Living and it was delicious. And, in general, brussel sprouts tend to go well with sweet flavors that offset their slight bitterness. So as I write this post, I feel like this Brussel Sprout & Grape Galette is one of those recipes that could be so weird that it’s a massive success, like […]
