Green pipian

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup (heaping) dry-roasted pumpkin seeds
½ cup Onion; chopped
2 tablespoons Peanut oil
1 cup Chicken stock
3 \N Green poblano chiles roast; peel, seed, chop
1½ cup Cilantro; chopped
2 \N Garlic cloves; roasted
8 \N Romaine lettuce leaves destemmed; chopped
1 bunch Watercress
1 bunch Radish tops
1½ teaspoon Anise seed; roasted
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Sugar

Saute onion in oil until slightly browned. Blen pumpkin seeds, chiles and stock to form a paste (in blender or processor). Add ½ cup of the cilantro and the remaining ingredients and puree. "Refry" this mixture in hot peanut oil for about 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Be careful not to overcook this or it will lose its bright green color. Return to blender and add the remaining cilantro. Puree until smooth. Garnish with a few extra pumpkin seeds. This green pipian goes well with pork and duck.

Enjoy! Fran (Source: Fran Siebengartner) Posted to MC-Recipe Digest by "M. Hicks" <nitro_ii@...> on Feb 2, 1998
