Cauliflower w/ roasted garlic chimichurri

P1010012

I sure do like to roast vegetables and garlic.   Pop a baking sheet in the oven, go out for a run and return to a fine-smelling apartment and a nice side dish. The little crumbles stuck to foil are really great.  In the odd chance you have leftovers, they make a great crunchy topping for soup, pasta or a green salad.

Skinny pasta w/ fresh and dried mushrooms

P1000951

Adding dried mushrooms, mushroom stock and roasted garlic makes this dish intense.  You get the distinct textures of fresh and dried mushrooms, around a very pure flavor brightened by parsley.   Portobellos shrink a ton while roasting — four is a good number for two people.

Carrot top pesto w/ roasted garlic

P1000879

Carrot top pesto is in these days — even the New York Times is on top of it. Every time I buy carrots at the farmer’s market, I mean to bite the bullet and take that enormous bunch of greens home.  Yesterday was the big day.   Although I love cannellini, they are here mostly to thicken sauce and add some protein — the flavor is all about pesto.   And nice knobby carrots.
