For dinner last night I made, well, I made “what can I do with that’s in the fridge?”
I’d requested some leafy greens, for my own obsession with raw ones. Kale was acquired, and since I don’t really enjoy raw kale, I cooked it up.
The kale was from market basked. Who knows where it came from.
A good way to cook things like kale or collards if you’re feeling lazy is to put some broth in a pan and toss the greens in. We have knorr vegetarian vegetable bullion available.
The bullion contains the following ingredients:
Salt, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean and Cottonseed Oils, Monosodium Glutamate, Yeast Extract, Dehydrated Vegetables (Onion, Cabbage, Carrots, Parsley, Garlic), Sugar, Corn Starch, Spices, Caramel and Turmeric for Color, Disodium Inosinate, Citric Acid.
I e-mailed Unilever about the bullion, so we’ll see. I think I need to do more research before I can talk about what’s in these, even in a general sense.
There was brown rice. I forget the brand name. No one is home to check.
I also made a sort of salsa, containing corn, tomatoes, basil, and garlic from our CSA. World PEAS is located in Lowell, MA. World PEAS is a member of the Northeast Organic Farming Association and describes their farming practices as “naturally grown.” They have some association with Tufts.
I’m going to miss out CSA in the winter.
There was also some jalapeno from our garden.
I heated some peanut oil up.
The peanut oil is Hollywood Peanut Oil.
It contains: Peanut oil, dl-beta-tocopheryl acetate and dl-beta-tocopheryl
This means “peanut oil and vitamin E.”
Hollywood is part of the Hain Celestial Group, which includes a bunch of other companies like Celestial Seasonings, Arrowhead Mills, WestSoy, Walnut Acres, Rice Dream, Avalon, Alba, and JASON (to name a few).
I cooked the garlic, jalapeno, and basil for a bit in the oil while I cut up the tomatoes and cut the corn off the cob.
These were added together and mixed.
We had some tortillas that were used to eat it, but I used a bowl and spoon.
