    Trinkets's Note:

    One day we had lunch in a little restaurant in the warehouse district of New Orleans. The restaurant did not survive Katrina but our memories did. The chef gave me his recipe for this divine puree which graced our table along with some toasted pita breads instead of the typical French bread and butter. I serve it all the time with crudités and chips. Great! *Cooking time does not reflect 4 hours pre-soaking.

      This was very tasty. We found it light and refreshing without being too filling. Needed quite a bit of salt and pepper though, and we even added a pinch of citric acid crystals to brighten it up a bit without adding actual lemon flavor. We thought it was better at room temperature than chilled.
