For the Beluga Lentils

  • Place all the ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil, turn down to a simmer and cover with a lid.  
    Cook the lentil for about 25-30 minutes until they are tender all the way through but not over cooked. Set aside to cool.

For the Romanesco

  • In a small saute pan add oil and romanesco cauliflower. Cook for 2 minutes and then add the curry, cumin, and salt. Cook for another 2-4 minutes or so until the romanesco is tender all the way through. Set aside to cool.
    Once cooled place in a bowl. Add the lentils and persimmon to the bowl as well. Season with a little olive oil, salt, pepper, and touch of lime juice, and curry if needed. This is your filling for the “taco”.

For the Cracker Tacos

  • Preheat Oven at 325In a small bowl add flours, salt, and spices. Make a well in the center of the flour and add oil and juice. Take a fork and mix the wet with the dry ingredients until it forms a dough. Once the dough is formed allow to rest covered for 20 minutes.
    I like to use my pasta machine and roll dough down a few notches until you get the thickness that you like ( It took mine down to 6 on the pasta machine).
    Then take a small round cookie cutter and cut small rounds in the cracker dough. Place the rounds on cannoli steel molds (or bench scraper) so that they form a “taco” and a sheet pan and lightly season with salt.
