Rocket,nuts and pistachios savory cake

rocket savory cake

Savory cakes, here in Argentina, are not ordinary as in Brazil. The most Brazilian family has a good recipe, mostly done in a blender. So, I want to do something different

I was a little bit tiered of tarts and pies (remembering, at those moment I baked 8 pies and tarts….afff!!) and knowing that I had rocket in my fridge I began to search a recipe in my stuffs and I found this in La cuisine naturelle, a recipe compile edited to Manor La placette

. The cake was really good tasty and keeps fresh for several days.
