Yes, since I’m back from London I’m haunted. It seems I can’t forget this delicious restaurant called 222 and I just knew I wouldn’t find any rest till I tried to replicate one of their dishes. What else could I do then take the one I had so much enjoyed: Broccolini Di Parma.
This is the description of the dish:
Fresh pancakes stuffed with tofu cottage cheese, broccoli, and pimento sauce, re-baked drawing out the fine flavour. Served with sautéed baby potatoes.
This is how I did it:
PANCAKES ( 8 to 10)
Make a batter with: 200 g selfraising flour, 4 tbs chickpeaflour, salt, 2.5 dl soymilk, 1 dl water and 2 tbs olive-oil
Let the batter rest for one hour. And bake, you probably know how.
Crumble tofu with your hands (I really like doing that) and add some nutritional yeast flakes (to your own taste), some soy-cream and salt
For this I used a recipe I found on the internet. It’s all over the net so I guess people wouldn’t mind if I show it here too:
1 cup raw cashews
2-3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons onion powder
2-1/2 cups water
4 oz jar of pimientos
2 teaspoons of salt
1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder
Whiz above ingredients in blender until smooth.
Stir the pimiento sauce in the ricotta.
After this you can saute/boile/stir-fry (whatever you like) some broccoli.
Voila, your ready to fill and serve your pancakes.
And they were almost as good as the ones in 222.
