Perfect for your Emmy party, Red’s Secret Garden Crudité looks like a real garden. Crudité is just a fancy word for chopped up vegetables. Dress up the garden with edible flowers or pea shoots and serve some different types of dips to go on the side.
- ½ loaf day-old pumpernickel bread
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 6 Tablespoons olive oil
- Crudité, for serving
Tear or roughly chop the bread into bite-sized pieces. Toast on a sheet pan until dry and crumbly, then cool.
Pulse the breadcrumbs in a food processor until they resemble the consistency of dirt, about 20 seconds.
Drizzle in the olive oil and pulse to the point that the dirt can be packed, but is not soggy.
Season with salt then use as a “soil” base for crudités, or sprinkle over pasta or roasted veggies, particularly cauliflower and broccoli.
