Sorrel Pesto Rice Bowl

Once a competitive figure skater and now the owner of one of LA's most celebrated restaurants – “Sqirl”, Jessica Koslow is more than a power woman. Her restaurant has received multiple awards. For her it’s all about taste: She is fascinated by the moment you put the first bite into your mouth and you're taste buds are overwhelmed. That's just what happened – we were blown away by the highly creative dishes that this accomplished chef creates, like her Sorrel Pesto Rice Bowl, which is well known in LA's food-scene.

Recipe Preparation

  1. Boil the rice in plenty of salted water until its tender, 30 to 45 minutes. Drain and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, make the sorrel pesto: In a blender or food processor, combine ½ cup (120ml) of the oil, kale, sorrel, and 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice. Blend until smooth, stopping and scraping down the sides as needed. Season with salt to taste.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the rice with the dill, preserved lemon peel, one tablespoon of the lemon juice, pesto and salt to taste.
  4. In a small bowl, toss the radish with the remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice, the remaining 2 teaspoons oil, and a pinch of salt. Set aside to marinate for a few minutes, until the radish is pliable and tender.
  5. To serve, divide the rice among six bowls. Spoon a line of hot sauce across the rice. Arrange a little clump of feta on one side and a rosette of radish slices on the other side. Set a poached egg in the middle of each bowl and season it with fleur de sel and black pepper. Garnish with a tiny sprig or two of dill.
