Romesco Spread

Available on our guest lunchline, romanesco can be great instead of mayonnaise or mustard to make a sandwich per usual—home-roasted turkey, jack cheese, fresh lettuce or cucumber slices from our greenhouse, some home-roasted vegetables or a couple slices of fresh tomato. The result is a highly un-usual and very delicious sandwich. The romanesco adds a mysterious and flavorful richness that pairs well with any savory meat and/or cheese combination on a sandwich.


Romanesco Spread

Puree in food processor:

  • 1 cup toasted almonds
  • ⅔ cup lightly oiled and toasted panko bread crumbs
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 guajio, chipotle, or other smoky-flavored pepper (roasted, soaked in hot water for a few minutes and seeded)
  • ¼ teaspoon roasted jalapeno pepper (optional)

Add and puree again:

  • 2-3 roasted red peppers
  • 3-4 roasted cherry tomatoes
  • a few sprigs of picked thyme
  • lemon juice to taste
  • salt to taste

Keeps well refrigerated. Spread thinly (or not so thinly) on both sides of your sandwich.
