Cooking through the vegetables

Getting ready for a week away from home (train down to LA for an Oulipo conference) and cooking up all the vegetables I ambitiously bought. Otherwise, you know, they will go bad.

The spinach was wilted and fried with a little garlic (and then asafœtida, of course). The eggplant was sliced and broiled, which didn't work out so well, as broiling never seems to work out so well for me. And the cauliflower was fried up a bit and then braised in tomato sauce with a little garlic. That was pretty nice!

The next few days will be on a train and will consist mostly of carbohydrates, I suspect, so this will have to satisfy my body for a bit.

See you in November.
