Lavender Cheese Croquette with Garlic Aioli
1 goat cheese log
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 tsp culinary lavender buds
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp paprika
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 clove garlic, diced
1 tsp lemon juice
Garnish with Lavender Cocktail Pick (optional)
Slice your cold goat cheese into 1/4 inch slices. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet, set in freezer while you make up your bread crumb mixture. In a small bowl combine bread crumbs, culinary lavender, garlic powder, parsley, salt and paprika, stir to combine and set aside. In another shallow bowl combine 2 eggs and whisk for a couple seconds and set aside. Make up your Garlic aioli in a small bowl by combining your mayonaise, garlic and lemon juice, stir to combine and place it in a small serving dish.
Take your cheese from the freezer and dip each one first into the egg and then cover with your bread crumbs until you have coated all of them.
In a medium sized fry pan, drizzle olive oil in to cover the bottom of pan about 2 Tbsp worth. Turn heat on medium high and fry your breaded cheese croquettes until golden, turn over and do the other side. Once golden place them on serving dish and serve with your garlic aioli. We liked to add the dollop of garlic aioli to the top and place a lavender cocktail pick on for garnish.

Nothing says comfort as a bowl of soup on a cold day! This creamy cauliflower base soup is made extra creamy with a touch of cashews and brought to life with a little bit of lemon and lavender. Tastes super delicious with a grilled cheese sandwich.
Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Lemon and Lavender
1 head cauliflower — chopped (about 2 lbs)
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
⅓ cup cashews
2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lavender
4 garlic cloves — finely chopped
5 cups vegetable broth
Freshly ground black pepper, to garnish
In a medium saucepan, add onion, saute until softened about 5 minutes. Add cauliflower, garlic, lavender stir to combine and then add vegetable broth. Let simmer for 15 minutes. Add soup to a blender with cashews, lemon juice and salt. Blend until smooth. (If you don't have a blender that can do this, blend your lemon juice and cashews in mixer with 1 cup of soup until smooth. Add all back to soup pot and heat if needed. We like to garnish with drizzle of olive oil, little slice of lemon and chopped chives. Tastes delicious with grilled cheese sandwiches.
