Messy Plates. Tasty Meals.
|A bowl of Carolina-style tomato and okra soup may appear banal without a garnish; in fact, the spicy stew didn't require one other than the misshapen (but light and fluffy) biscuits and roasted asparagus and bell peppers.|
|A lot of undecorated goodness on a plate: basmati and black pepper rice, tomato salad, kale and scallion salad, sambar, cinnamon cauliflower and green chutney.|
|The non-photogenic okra and tomato stew again, this time around with toasted whole wheat dinner rolls.|
|Once again, don't judge a plate by its looks. A wintery supper of mashed potatoes, roasted tofu, green salad and baked apples and onions really hit the spot on a cold February evening.|
|When dinner plates seem just too too humble and boring, add a few micro-greens and call it a day. In our case we didn't stop there; the "cherry" on top of our mise en scene is in fact, a gigantic caper berry!|
