Vij's Lambchops and Roasted Carrot and Turnip Salad with Cilantro Pesto

Vij's Lamb Popsicles in Turmeric Cream Sauce
After many, many attempts, Alexis has finally perfected this sauce. Last time it didn't break, which was a relief, but this time the consistency was perfect. This sauce involves lots of patience, the substitution of half and half for cream and a spoonful of cornstarch. Click here for the recipe.

Roasted Carrot and Turnip Salad in Cilantro Pesto
This salad was served room temperature and was hearty and bright at the same time.

-8 carrots, peeled and chopped
-5 baby turnips, cut in eighths
-1 bunch cilantro
-juice of 1 lime
-1 handful pine nuts
-2 cloves garlic
-salt to taste

Roast the carrots and turnips on 375 until fork tender. Set aside to cool. Puree the remaining ingredients until a paste forms. When the veggies are cool, toss them in the cilantro pesto.
