Parsley Rice with Almonds ParmesanHOMEMAKER
Rejuvenating green rice flavored with Parsley and served hot with crunchy almonds Parmesan . This dish I am sharing today is Italian , as I have used all the Italian cuisine must haves , which includes even cheese , to make a complete Vegan meal I have used Almonds Parmesan instead of cheese. Italians do make Pilaf with Rice, veggies and meat , which inspired me to make this dish with Parsley as main ingredient which gave a unique flavor to the rice and made this a must have in my hubby's lunch box . Parsley do look similar to Coriander but with mild flavor and taste unique to that of coriander , so if you want to treat your taste buds with a different flavor than usual try this simple recipe and leave your guests to wonder , that even a herb can be used for flavoring the entire dish without any spices .
- Toast almonds , and blend them into a coarse powder , add in olive oil and garlic powder , give a good toss and set aside .
- Take fresh parsley , soak in cold water , and rinse thoroughly, add it to a blending jar along with shallots, garlic pods 2 to 3 , few pepper corns and a table spoon of lime juice . Give it pulses such that it becomes a smooth paste without any residues . Now add in Extra virgin olive oil and give some more pulses such that oil blend in the mixture . This mixture along with almonds can be used as pesto or sauce to even pastas
- Heat a sauteing pan , add in some olive oil , when hot and not smoking add in the parsley paste and fry until it looses raw smell
