weekend, another trip to 99 Ranch Market, another grocery
bag full of strange and wonderful foods to cook up.
I went nuts in the kitchen afterwards, and this lunch
is only the first installment.
To begin with, here are some stir-fried
vegetables. Carrots, sugar peas, scallion, broccoli,
and zucchini from my garden. Nothing too odd there.
But they're resting on a bed of lavender satoimo
noodles. Satoimo is also known as taro, which is
also known as "those weird hairy little roots."
I saw a package of light purple noodles, and how could
I possibly resist? They taste nice, a little firmer
and more slippery than wheat noodles.
Now that my supply is replenished I can once again
serve my signature baked purple sweet potato.
Yes! I added a boiled egg
after realizing that this lunch was short in the protein
department, and finished off with a few small slices
of banana bread.
