I grow a lot of different vegetables in my kitchen garden, and every now and then there is a glut of one or the other. I have previously written about zucchini, and now it is parsley. We love parsley and every spring I sow lots of it (not just your regular pot on the terrace). So come late summer there is the inevitable glut of parsley.
We do eat a lot of tabbouleh (which we love), but my potager is fast running out of mint, yet there is plenty of parsley left. So the answer is "dynamite"! Now dynamite is made out of equal weight (in these photos there is about 400g of each) of parsley, cauliflower, celery root and onion. All of them raw.
The best way to process them is with an old fashioned meat grinder. Alas, it is something I do not have. So I use my food processor to chop them all up. Add salt to taste, and voilà, a healthy concoction that tastes heavenly with potatoes... on rye bread topped with tomato slices... etc. Dynamite freezes well. The important thing to remember is to freeze it in small portions, as once defrosted it really should be eaten the very same day.
It is lovely to have something "green" in the freezer, to be taken out and enjoyed on a cold winter´s day, when the garden is covered by a white blanket of snow. Never mind if there are no salad vegetables in the fridge. "Dynamite" is a delicious, healthy alternative.
