    Ingredients & Inspiration

      • We are in the middle of a mad period of travel and last week’s meals were a bit haphazard. I want to eat better this week.
      • Our freezer is full but only getting more full. I want to work on eating some of the surplus in the next few weeks. Look for the (f) to indicate an ingredient from the freezer.
      • We’re celebrating Mardi Gras a few days early so I can write about it next week.

      Two questions: 1) are your parsnips and broccoli roasted together? b) how do you make your dried tomato sauce? I see your instructions for drying, but am unclear if you’re adding dried tomatoes to a previously made sauce, or making a sauce entirely of dried tomatoes. Thanks!

        The parsnips and broccoli were roasted on the same pan but on segregated sides and for different lengths of time. I’m posting about the parsnips next week.

        The sauce was made from re-hydrated dried tomatoes. I’ve heard it’s possible to dry sauce with the proper trays on a dehydrator but I’ve never tried it.
