Autumn Vegetable Salad with Teff, Anchovy Vinaigrette & Savahschaff Cheese

Makes 2-4 servings

1 cup teff

3 cups water

Zest of one lemon

Salt

4 ounces radicchio, leaves torn

4 ounces roasted cauliflower

3 sunchokes, thinly shaved

1/4 head fennel, thinly shaved

1/4 cup chopped parsley

1/3 cup chopped mint

1 ounce toasted walnuts

2 ounces Savahschaff, pecorino, or parmesan cheese

For the anchovy vinaigrette:

1 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1/3 cup lemon juice

1 clove garlic, minced

5 anchovy fillets, chopped

1. Make the teff: Bring teff and water to a boil in a saucepan. Lower heat to simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, transfer teff to a fine-mesh strainer and rinse in cold water until cool and water runs clear. Drain well, then mix with a pinch of salt and lemon zest.

2. Combine radicchio, cauliflower, sunchokes, fennel, herbs, and walnuts. Toss in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt.

3. Make dressing: Whisk to combine olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and anchovy. Season to taste. Dress vegetables with anchovy vinaigrette.

4. Add a mound of teff to each plate. Spoon salad over teff and grate cheese on top.
