Good things happen In the kitchen when you consider flavor “affinities" or ”foods that compliment each other in a recipe". Common affinities are lime, cilantro and chili; tomato, basil, and vinegar. Perhaps the most famous affinity is from Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel: “parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.” One of our Patreon "Hungry Mob", wrote in with a question this week that made me think of another affinity--potato, lemon and bok choy. So here is my newest recipe. It's simple, delicious, and full of delicious, multi-colored vegetables. And when you cook this up, be sure to let us know at connect@smallkitchenBIGTASTE.com
