Yesterday's Boston Globe food section (lead article by Devra First, "Health Food Mecca?") was about the predictable: how to eat right after eating wrong. Many tofu recipes plus reviews of local veggie and vegan restaurants (yes, skeptics, you can now eat raw in Boston). And, apropos, last night, we had dinner with dear friends for which I made Mollie Katzen's triumph (and old-time family fave), Enchanted Broccoli Forest.
(Note to cooks: I made two versions, one totally heart-healthy for my friend, B, who has successfully lowered his LDL from 130 to 40 by maniacally eliminating nearly every calorie of fat from his diet, the other for the rest of us, which I souped up, as usual, with grated cheese and beaten eggs. FYI, I always use brown rice for greater texture, sometimes add lentils for more protein, and occasionally add sesame and/or sunflower seeds. Recently, I made it with broccoli and white and purple cauliflower. Basically, you can do anything with this recipe. It's delicious and beautiful on presentation.)
All of which is a perfect excuse to post these photos, taken just after Thanksgiving at the Grand Army Plaza Farmers Market in Brooklyn.
