Fin­ish­ing Touches

Vegetarian Today - - Ingredient Focus -

GARNISHES FIN­ISH THINGS with style. Be­low are just a few sug­ges­tions, but you can use a va­ri­ety of cheeses, fresh herbs, and chopped nuts. Pine Nuts: A sprin­kling of toasted pine nuts, whole or chopped, look nice and they add a del­i­cate crunch and rich fla­vor. Parmesan: Parmesan is the most tra­di­tional gar­nish. Get a good one, like Parmi­giano-Reg­giano, for the most im­pact. Use a veg­etable peeler to make pa­per-thin shav­ings. Gor­gonzola: This Ital­ian blue cheese can be iden­ti­fied by its bluish-green veins, creamy tex­ture, and slight pun­gency. Like Parmesan, it too has a strong taste. Flat-Leaf Pars­ley: Flat-leaf, also called Ital­ian pars­ley, has a more in­tense fla­vor than other va­ri­eties and con­trib­utes a hit of fresh­ness.
