A friend of mine passed this article along from the New York Times blog. A list of 11 (weird number for a list) foods that nutritionist Jonny Bowden says we should be, but aren’t eating. I’ll be honest, the list isn’t all that groundbreaking, but nonetheless it’s a nice resource and reminder for us home cooks needing a challenge. For instance, when’s the last time you bought sardines?
So this got me thinking…What interesting ways can these eleven ingredients be combined to make a dish or even better a full meal. I’ve already got a few ideas and will be sharing my creations with you at the beginning of next week, but what about you? How would you use these ingredients (some much easier than others) to make a memorable meal. Well here’s your opportunity to try. So work out a recipe or two incorporating some of these ingredients (bragging rights for most ingredients used), snap a photo, and share your results with the rest of us. For added incentive, those who email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) the pictures of their creations by noon Monday will receive my recipes for this little challenge along with the recipe for my favorite Tortilla Soup. So get cooking!
