Tomorrow, I will be presenting these dishes on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with host Nadia Kidwai. The produce is local and in season now, for the best flavours. You can also enjoy fresh local produce all season with a share in a Community Shared Agriculture, or CSA, such as from Almost Urban Vegetables, also at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market.
1 cup roughly chopped chives (Available at Almost Urban Vegetables at St. Norbert�s Farmer�s Market)
1 cup roughly chopped sorrel leaves (Available at Almost Urban Vegetables at St. Norbert�s Farmer�s Market)
1/2 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup grated parmesan reggiano or padano
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/4 + cup good olive oil
pinch salt, to taste
Grind up all ingredients to a paste. Enjoy as a pesto, as an ingredient, as a sandwich spread, etc. In pasta, try with chopped tomatoes to bring out the sweetness of the chives. The lemony flavour of the sorrel makes it a great match for chicken, fish, and seafood.
1-2 apples, cored and chopped
