Lunch


The other day the grocery store had these leaves marked down for quick sale as the expiry date was coming up soon. I've never heard of them before, but seeing as they would end up being cheaper than normal salad leaves I decided to try out this Mache Rosettes. (According to the packaging "sounds like 'Mosh'.")
It's pretty good stuff!!

So, what is Mache?

"...Mache is a delicious and delicate European salad green now field-grown in California. Its beautiful rosette shape, pleasant nutty flavor and vibrant green color make Mache the ultimate salad experience. Mache can also be a featured ingredient in cold or cooked dishes."

I just copied that from the package :) So now you know as much about Mache as I do!

It does make delicious salads!! Today I added broccoli, pear, grapefruit, walnuts and soft mozzarella cheese. Paul was concerned about it at first, but ended up totally loving it, as did I!

Dehydrated yogurt- I've made something similar. You take just yogurt, full fat version if you can, and drain it like you said and wahlah, you have cream cheese. Only it's got all that good for you stuff in it. But I'll have to try that dehydrated stuff, sounds good. Do you spread it on toast or something?

Its because I usually read through bloglines.com (a feed reader) as opposed to physically coming to your blog to check it out. On the feed reader, everything displays on a white background.

Pears in salad? I think you've been hanging around Panera Bread too much ;)

I was with it until you said broccoli. LOL I can't imagine mixing broccoli with pears and grapefruit. But if you say it's good...

Mache is alo great for growing in northern gardens in the winter! It's very cold hardy, and if it freezes it comes right back to life when it defrosts.
