Bergamot Gremolata with Whipped Goats cheese and Roast Potatoes

Gremolata and whipped goats cheese

There isn’t a lot going on at the allotment in the middle of winter but the kale and the sorrel is still growing. We planted sorrel for the first time last summer. I can’t remember having used it before and I love the herb and citrus flavor.

I love Earl Grey tea and couldn’t resist a bergamot lemon when I found one to buy. They are incredibly fragrant and I wanted to use it to make something special.

Gremolata is usually made of parsley, lemon and garlic but I couldn’t resist using some sorrel and of course, the Bergamot lemon.

Gremolata ingredients

One thing about Gremolata that every recipe will mention is that it is very important to chop the herbs by hand.

serves 6


  • 1 bunch of parsley, washed and dried
  • 1 handful of sorrel, washed and dried

Chop the parsley and the sorrel very fine.

Chopped herbs

Grate the zest from the Bergamot lemon, cut it in half and squeeze out the juice. Crush the garlic and mix all of the ingredients. Taste with a pinch of sea salt.

Parsley, Sorrel and Bergamot Gremolata

This is possibly the most fragrant sauce I have ever made, it has a true zing and it was absolutely addictive.

I served it with whipped goats cheese and roast potatoes. It may sound like a strange meal but it was so delicious.

The tangy goats cheese, the zingy Gremolata and the comforting potato was a match made in foodie heaven.

    They look so fresh and yummy! I literally just threw out a bag of new potatoes a couple hours ago, because they started growing spouts :-(, shame…Guess I’ll have to buy a new bag and try with your Gremolate 😉

      hi Jin
      Sometimes potatoes sprout very fast… Always a bummer. I hope you give it a go, it was delicious and easy to make 🙂

  2. This sounds like my kind of dinner, lovely.
