Day 8: Brown Food

I had brown food tonight. It was a night to explore the pantry - and try to use up ingredients from the fridge, the spice drawer - and the far reaches of the cabinents.

What I ended up with was a dish that tasted ok. I started by slow cooking chicken breasts in a ginger, chicken broth and laksa broth from Singapore. With the broth from the slow cooking, I made a flavored rice. I then had a package of Indian black dal (lentils). The food wanted to be SE Asian meets South Asian. And while it was tasty - and a good way to use up ingredients, without having to go to the market - there was one problem.

It turned out to be brown. Really brown food.

I am not sure brown food is a very good thing.


  1. Yep. Agree. All brown doesn't look as good to eat. But did it taste good?

  2. I made vitello tonnato the other day. All beige, all wonderful!
