You know what is gross? Anchovies. You know what is super-gross? Ground up anchovies. I've never had a real ceasar salad in my life, but Kurt is a big fan. Several years ago, at his suggestion, I tried my hand at a vegetarian ceasar salad that involved a coddled egg (which is like a raw egg but without the danger of poisoning yourself.) It was tasty enough, but not really worth repeating in a hurry. There was a big pack of organic romaine on clearance at the grocery store for $1, so I snatched it up and thought it time to try another ceasar recipe. My friend Adam was recently singing the praises of the Post Punk Kitchen, so I checked there first and sure enough they had a much lauded vegan recipe. I followed their recipe exactly, so I won't re-post it. The only difference with mine is that I used some stale homemade spelt and teff bread instead of French or Italian, and kale instead of the optional spinach. The recipe is really clever and uses caper brine for a vague fishiness and ground almonds for texture.
