With the Cashew Rosemary “Cream”

There are some days that recipe inspiration does not come easy. And then sometimes, you get lucky. You see an ingredient and a whole dish falls into place.

Strolling farmer’s markets can be a great idea. Veggies and fruits are everywhere calling out, “pick me!”

Yesterday, these portobello mushrooms had that effect on me. When I spotted them, I could not resist. I saw them stuffed with a flavorful, healthy filling made with tomatoes, onions, olives, spinach and pine nuts, topped with a creamy rosemary “cream” sauce. The recipe was born!

I put a little extra step in this recipe that isn’t necessary, but I would suggest you take the time to do it. It contributes to what is called “flavor layering” and it has a big impact on the taste of the final dish. Flavor layering builds, expands and deepens the flavors that are already in your dish. In this recipe, I have taken part of the tomatoes and onions, marinated them, and dehydrated them for a bit. When mixed with the raw tomatoes and onions, the effect deepens and expands the flavor. You can use a low heat oven (not raw) to get the same effect. Just don’t leave them in too long.

    It is delicious. I just made it. You are right about dehydrating the tomatoes and the onions. The taste of that mixed with the other tomatoes is definitely distinctive.
