Red face Project : Me don't like Fennel but love Pizza

Hey hey!!! Good morning lovely people!!

Since my first project went well and with all the lovely people giving me 'support' in all forms, participating, sending love vibe, encouragement etc and that I agreed with Jozzie to make this once my jitters for Mr K's project are over, so hey, join us both.... ?

Here is the link to Fennel & Pear Pizza with Pine Nut Parmesan.

I think this is fun, having a virtual raw making dishes with lovely raw friends from halfway round the globe.... no??! its much more special that way...

I have a few questions, I am not sure if I have a favorite basil pesto for I have only tried one which is Alissa's. If you think you have a better one, would you share with this Tweety Bird please?

Also I am not sure if I still do have flax and nutritional yeast, if not can I omit them or any other substitutions??

Lastly, I will have to hunt for.....

BOSC PEAR & FENNEL *yucks*


.... then I will set the date for making this okay Jozzie zzzzzzzzzzzz... what say you you youuuuuuuuuuu???!

ps : me sure hope after this project, me's mind will change on fennel

You girls!!! Yuck? Medicine? *shaking her head* I'm sure you're blowing all this out of proportion! Just wait til you taste it marinated! You'll see!

Aisah girl, you might want to try the pesto recipe in my ebook (listed for the lasagna recipe). And yes, you can omit the flax seeds, although you do need them for the crust.

No yeast will mean not as cheesy. Can't vouch as to whether it will taste as yummy. If no work, me not liable ok! he he

Will someone please tell me what kind of fennel to look for. I'm sure I've seen fresh fern like leaves in plastic packs with the basil and such in produce. Also plants like celery stalks with swollen bottoms. And then the seed in glass jars. Seems like the recipe said to slice it so the seed would be out. So is it the leafs or the stalks?

It's the plants like celery stalks with the swollen bottoms! It has a celery like texture and crunch, but an unmistakably not celery like flavor! It tastes a lot like licorice... But in a crunchy, refreshing sort of way. I think it's delightful!

Thank you all. I went to the store after posting above and there was no fennell of any kind. I have seen that fennell before so maybe they were just out. Now I have another question, the only pears were D'Anjou, Asian, Bartlett, and Red Pears. If they get the fennell, which of these pears would be closest to Bosc?

Hey Aisah 's'tweetey it's Sunday here also !! LOL at least we'r' on the same day? except you will be getting ready for night night?


Ja let's choose a day; then do the sprouting, then do the 'FENNELL FUN' etc.


Danny_banany; You could use a different crust??? Carmella will help us with this; Or use your 'oven' set at the lowest setting and the door slightly open. Many people have tried this with success. Ja (Aisah's german yes) Ja you might have to check it often. Joz

Hey STB,
I think Anjou would work beautifully (altho I'm by no means a pear expert. )

Noooooooooooo! *a concerned look on her face*

Oh Aisah girl, I strongly recommend you wait til the night before. The thing is, buckwheat has a tendency to go bad on ya really easily. So what I do is put the buckwheat to soak before going to bed. To prevent fermentation, rinse it a few times, every 30 mins. or so, to release as much goo as possible. Then fill up your jar with fresh water and leave it til morning. Then rinse really well and it's all ready to use! Tada! (One cup dry buckwheat will yield 2 cups sprouted.)
