Citizens, you all know that I am inordinately fond of the cuisine of the amazing country of Georgia! Here is a fantastic heirloom recipe that includes the holy trinity of Georgian food: walnuts, garlic and pomegranate! Found on georgianrecipes.net, I cannot improve upon it and quote verbatim from their fantastic site!
With this post, we end our 3-straight recipe listings from this mighty country, but don’t forget there are dozens of superb Georgian recipes here on TFD! All you have to do is click on the “Georgian” tag on the right sidebar and all of our magnificent entries will be at your full beck and call! 🙂
In this old recipe from Georgia’s Imereti region we show how to make Prasiela, a type of Pkhali or Fkhali (Georgian: ფხალი) that uses leeks and a spicy walnut mixture. Served cold, Prasiela is delicious! It is redolent of garlic, rare Georgian spices and herbs and includes both ground walnuts and pomegranate seeds, both renowned superfoods for your health!
Serve this at your next party and prepare to receive multitudinous accolades for this delicious appetizer! Since I have not modified this recipe in any way from its classic ingredients or technique, it lacks my normal “Hirshon” prefix in the title.
