I realise the plot to plate so far has seen an over-abundance of herb recipes but the continued cold snap has brought two failed radish crops. I remain optimistic for future recipes of beetroot, radicchio, carrot, french bean, shallots, oca and potatoes but less hopeful patty-pan squash and tomatillo.
50 oregano leaves
100ml extra virgin olive oil
40g pine nuts
25g parmesan cheese, freshly grated
25g pecorino cheese, freshly grated
2 cloves garlic
Put the oregano leaves in a food processor with the olive oil, pine nuts, garlic and a pinch of salt. Process briefly at medium speed. Add the grated cheeses and process again.
Served with Linguine, potato and french beans.
