I didn’t mean to go meatless, it just happened that I haven’t eaten meat since I ate the five spice pork bowl for lunch again at MoBowl Food Truck on Monday. It was even better this time than the last! Surprisingly, I haven’t missed eating meat. I’ve really enjoyed the seasonal fruits and vegetables along with the cheese and grains we’ve been eating in a rush all week. Basically, I just haven’t had time to cook.
But I made a little time for cooking today. I had a few minutes to toss a couple of potatoes into the oven early this morning before our predicted blistering heat was scheduled to arrive this afternoon. I had seen another Bon Apetit recipe I wanted to try, this time for Indian style grilled stuffed potatoes. And to go with the potatoes, I decided to adapt Chef Dennis’s squash tower using Indian spices, rather than African. I loved all the food we had in Zulu country last summer, but didn’t have his spice mixture on hand. So I used Bina’s Magic Indian Spice as I call it (a version of chaat masala), and made the squash with an Indian twist.
