But sometimes when I need inspiration during the week, I really, really appreciate the produce section at Whole Foods. Everything looks so fresh and colorful and in its place! I stocked up on bok choy, radishes, baby cucumbers, heirloom tomatoes, leeks, fennel, peppers, and nectarines.
Unfortunately, the nectarines turned out to be duds. :-/ This did NOT make me happy.
But dinner tonight was nice and light and full of flavor. :-) I used this recipe from Orangette, subbing brown rice for soba noodles. I love that the only cooked part of this dish is the rice, yet it still feels like a hot, comforting meal. I need to get into the habit of incorporating more raw vegetables into my dinners.
I think hot rice, crunchy vegetables, and nut butter sauces much be one of my very favorite food combinations.
