Romanesco Cauliflower Buckwheat Bowl
Servings: 2 people
Ingredients
  • 1 large romanesco
  • 2 leeks
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 tsp. Dried Italian Herbs
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup buckwheat groats
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped chives
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces
  • soft goat cheese for topping
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400'.
  2. With the romanesco, cut the florets away from the core. Leave the smaller ones intact and halve the large florets. Toss them onto a baking sheet. 

  3. Clean the leeks and discard the tough dark green parts. Slice them into 1" coins and add them to the baking tray. Drizzle on the olive oil, nutmeg, herbs, pepper flakes, sea salt and toss well to coat. Make sure all the outsides of the vegetables are covered. Roast in the upper third for 30-35 minutes until the edges are browned.

  4. While the vegetables roast, prepare the buckwheat. Rinse it well in a fine mesh strainer and drain. Bring the water to a gentle boil and add the buckwheat. Turn the heat down to a gentle simmer and cook for 7-10 minutes until just softened. If groats start to get mushy turn down the heat. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then drain well. 

  5. Into a mixing bowl, combine the drained buckwheat, olive oil, honey, lemon juice, chives, parsley and salt and pepper to taste.

  6. Assemble your bowl with the herby buckwheat, a big heap of the vegetables and garnish with a handful of walnuts and crumbled goat cheese.

Fried Green Tomato BLT
Servings: 2 people
Ingredients
Fried Green Tomatoes:
  • 4 eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 3 cups panko crumbs
  • 1 1/2 cup flour or cornstartch
  • 1/2 cup parmesan grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 green tomatoes
  • butter and oil for pan frying
Sandwich Ingredients:
  • 4 tsp butter
  • 4 pieces bread
  • 4 leaves lettuce
  • 2 handfulls micro greens
  • 4 pieces cooked bacon
  • 2 tbsp mayo
  • 6 slices fried green tomatoes
Instructions
  1. Cook your bacon, wash the lettuce, get out the micro greens, slice your bread.
To make the fried green tomatoes:
  1. Get out three bowls. In the first, crack the eggs and add milk and beat together. In the second bowl add the flour. In the last bowl add the panko crumbs, cheese, and seasonings.
  2. Dip each of the tomato slices in the flour first and coat evenly then dip into the egg mixture evenly and lastly into the panko crumb. Place on a plate and repeat for all the sliced tomatoes.
  3. Heat a large skillet pan to med high and add butter and oil enough to cover the bottom completely to get the crumbs coated so they brown nicely.
  4. Add the tomatoes. When the tomatoes are nicely browned on one side flip and add a little more oil and butter mixture till the other side is nicely brown. Remove with a flipper and set aside.
To make the sandwiches:
  1. You can either toast your bread and then butter it, or butter it on the outside pieces and grill in a hot pan for a few mins on each side. We love it done in a pan because it gets all crispy and delicious because of the butter.
  2. Then put it all together. Add the mayo to both pieces of bread and then layer the insides on top.
