At the grocery store this afternoon, I was going to pick up a box of baby spinach when I noticed this one, right beside it.
What in the world is Mâche Rosette, I thought.
Kinda shows the extent of my veggie vocabulary, doesn’t it? Well, it sure didn’t take much for me to decide to pick it up instead of the spinach. I mean, look at it! It does resemble the baby spinach but a lot smaller. It just looked fantastic. I know I’ll be in for a treat with this one.
On my way home, I couldn’t wait any longer that I opened the box in my car and started munching on a bunch just to see how it tasted. Man oh man, was I in green heaven or what? It does have that spinach personality to it but I think I like it even more. It’s a lot milder and a bit nutty in flavor. I swear you don’t even need anything else to go with it. Heck, not even dressing, in fact.
So, here it is. I’ve made a uhh… Mâche Pit, if you will, and I’m trying to figure out a way to make it rock even more than it already does. How about a little grilled chicken with shitake and sesame oil? Or a few pieces of blood oranges with red wine vinaigrette. Maybe I should go back to the store and grab a bag of frisée to add to it. I don’t know.
Well, this ain’t gonna last long before it goes bad. If anybody has had it before, your suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
