Fall is here and so are the best flavors of the year. When dropping by World Market the other day to pick up this cute guy,
I went a little crazy with the annual beta-carotene display. My cart was filled with butternut pasta sauce, pumpkin gnocchi, and pumpkin ale (I had to stop myself at the sweet potato butter...food NERD). Some butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin granola from Whole Foods and I'm set for October.
I've been reaching outside my culinary comfort zone to test out several new food products lately. Some recent purchases:
Shirataki pasta (tofu noodles!), Raisin and Cinnamon flavored mochi, and Seitan (wheat gluten that is really high in protein and tastes like meat).
|I'll report back on the tofu noodles and mochi.|
|Cooked seitan. Hmmm.|
|I heart veggies. It's true.|
|Kicking off my shoes in the kitchen.|
|Going out with sweet friends|
|The DeKalb Farmers Market|
|I only had red wine. Should have used white. Still not half bad.|
|Amaranth is kind of like quinoa-- it's actually a seed|
|King oyster mushroom. Come reign over your couscous kingdom.|
|Couscous, meet sauteed goodness. (They're soon to be married).|
Til next time, friends.
