poetry and food

cauliflower, zucchini & pea dahl.

three things to remember

as long as you're dancing, you can 
break the rules.
sometimes breaking the rules is just 
extending the rules.

sometimes there are no rules.

grab your biggest  sauce pan
2 - 3 wrist dances of olive oil
saute onion for the glaze dance
about 5 - 7 miniutes
add garlic
(1/2 teaspoon to start 
unless you like it spicy)
*this is a your base*

add veggies
coconut milk
mix it around
bring to a mellow boil
then to low
lid on
timer on
25 minutes or so
check in every now and then
see what it needs in terms of softening
you can turn it off and keep lid on
it will continue to cook

*love this*
with a squeeze of lemon
(meyer lemon if you can get it)
red lentils or 
garbanzo beans
on top of basmati
so many ways to 
make it yours 

there are no rules
