Mediterranean gets a flavorful, spicy twist. Crisp flatbread is brushed with olive oil and MINOR’S® Fire Roasted Poblano Flavor Concentrate and sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Piled with artichoke hearts, roasted red bell peppers, Greek olives, feta cheese, and baby spinach.

Ingredients

4.5 oz 1 each Flatbread or Naan
1 oz Minor’s® Fire Roasted Poblano Flavor Concentrate Gluten Free (6x13.6oz)
2.5 oz Artichoke hearts, cut in half
3/4 oz Shallot, thinly sliced
1.5 oz Red bell peppers, roasted, thinly sliced
1/4 oz Black olives, pitted, canned, drained, Greek, roughly chopped
2.5 oz Goat cheese, hard
1 oz Arugula, Baby
1 oz Olive oil
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese

Steps

  1. Use a spatula to spread a thin layer of Fire Roasted Poblano Flavor Concentrate onto the flatbread.
  2. Arrange the artichoke, shallots, bell peppers, olives, and goat cheese on the flatbread. Do not overcrowd the flatbread. All the ingredients should form one layer on the crust.
  3. Bake in 400°F convection oven for 10-12 minutes or until flatbread is crisp and golden.
  4. Tear baby arugula by hand and sprinkle over top of flatbreads. Drizzle with olive oil and Parmesan cheese to finish.

Adding an entirely new cuisine to the menu can feel daunting. But what if you could dabble in international flavors simply by introducing a few new condiments? For inspiration, FSD talked to operators who are offering a range of condiments plucked from global regional cuisines.

turnip juice brine

Give leftover brine new life by adding it to vegetables. In an interview with Food52, Stuart Brioza, chef and owner of State Bird Provisions in San Francisco, says that he adds a splash of leftover brine while sauteeing mushrooms to increase their flavor profile. “We like to ferment turnips at the restaurant, and it’s a great way to use that brine—though dill pickle brine would work just as well,” he says.
