classic gremolata

April 11, 2015


Gremolata is a traditional milanese condiment typically served with ossobuco alla milanese. With only 3 ingredients – lemon, parsley, and garlic – it’s fresh, zesty, and pungent so why limit its outings into the culinary world? It would be happy on this nossobuco vegan version of ossobuco. But it would be just as happy on pasta e fagioli, a fennel leek parsley risotto, or an end-of-winter vegetable stew. Bring it out whenever you need an extra guest at the party.

Handful of parsley, chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

Zest of 1 lemon

Wash and dry the parsley thoroughly. Chop the parsley coarsely on a chopping board. Add minced garlic and lemon zest to the pile. Continue to chop all 3 together until well-blended and the parsley is finely chopped. Mix with your hands a little more if needed.
