Cooking Directions

  1. Wash Produce: Before getting started wash all the produce thoroughly. Remove the bottom of the brussels and discard dirty ends. Remove Cauliflower from its core and cut florets into even pieces about an inch long. Wash and set aside to dry.
  2. Toss Brussels and cauliflower in 2 ounces of Extra Virgin Olive oil and season with salt lightly.
  3. Roasting Vegetables: Pre heat your oven to 450. In a large cooking sheet pan place brussels and cauliflower evenly spreading them on the pan, depending on the side of your pan you may have to cook in two batches. Place into oven for 10-12 minutes until your vegetables begins to brown. Remove from oven and set aside allow to cool for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Making La Victoria® Brand Salsa Verde Pistou: In a blender place all herbs (reserve a few for garnishing), queso añejo, olive oil, lemon juice, almonds and La Victoria® Salsa Verde. Blend for about 1 minute. Remove from blender and set aside.
