  • Hi my lovely ones  wondering if I can plant
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition Hi my lovely ones - wondering if I can plant a seed for you before you launch into the weekend... do you reckon we can all come together and think about how we can be super extra resourceful with the bits and pieces left in the fridge before we do the next shop and refresh for the week ahead? Look at every little herb stem, veggie 'scrap', piece of roast veggie or miniscule amount of lentils or meat or WHATEVER and consider - how can I best make use of this? Because really we are SO PRIVILEGED to have these

NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVES

If you were a fly on the wall in our kitchen today you’d hear the big questions asked like… “What 5 foods would you take to an island if you had to live on them forever?” Our head chef, responded with cheese as her number one, but all cheese captured under that one, not just a single type of cheese of course.

Yep we are answering life impacting questions today ladies and gents!

Cheese amongst our divine grazing boards are just the start of some of our favourite cheese dishes to create. But, if a weekend grazing board is just a little too far away still then have a taste of this delicious NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVE SALAD during the week with a portion of protein to accompany.

Nashi are in season throughout the winter and make the perfect crunch in a salad next to the rich flavours of blue cheese. You don’t need much of the blue, but make sure you do include it, as it truly is the hero ingredient of the dish.

NASHI WALNUT BLUE CHEESE AND ENDIVE 

Serves 4 as a side

Gluten Free

2 nashi pears, cored and sliced thin

100g blue cheese, crumbled

1 bunch curly endive

1/4 cup walnuts, roughly chopped or broken

sea salt and black pepper

Quick pickled red onion:

1 small (140g) red onion, peeled and finely sliced

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 cups water

good pinch sea salt

Dressing:

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon honey

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Make the quick pickled onion by combining apple cider vinegar, water and sea salt in a medium bowl or jar, then add red onion and allow to pickle for 5-10 minutes. Whilst onion is pickling whisk together ingredients for dressing. When ready to serve, drain the onion from the pickling brine, and toss together endive, nashi, onion and dressing in a large bowl. Transfer to serving platter, sprinkle dollops of blue cheese and walnuts around the salad, season with sea salt and black pepper and serve.
