We had sweet potato mash, mashed potatoes, and roasted sweet potatoes.mthis almost makes our thanksgiving seem normal 🙂
Let’s start with the herbs. We put parsley, mint, basal, tarragon, etc. in small glass vases. This keeps the fresh and allows people to just grab and go. Persians eat their garnishes… Is that weird?
We love to put out feta and olives too. No Persian meal is complete without the option of these two staples!
Sugared violets are more for decoration, but they are definitely edible. They would look really cute adorning chocolate cupcakes with a mound of violet buttercream frosting. Last but not least, we got purple carrots in our CSA box and they were so misleading! They were orange on the inside 😦
Black currant macarons! I’ve never tried one, but I can’t wait.
Dark grapes are by far better than the green ones.
Purple cabbage is great as a healthy snack… Or as a pH indicator 😛
For those of you who actually like blueberries, snack on those 🙂 We prefer blue crab or even better– cookie monster cupcakes 😛
Guacamole is one of our favorite appetizers. Pesto pasta is a favorite green meal. Forget green eggs. I always thought that sounded gross. Candied kiwis actually go great with a cup of tea instead of a classic dessert.
Yellow tomatoes, yellow rice with shrimp,honey semifreddo ( from nigella Lawson) .
This is a completely yellow meal. Serve a yellow tomato salad with salt and Italian dressing. The entrée is Persian yellow rice with shrimp. It is simply delicious. For dessert, honey semifreddo sound absolutely delicious and I’ve been dreaming of it ever since I saw nigella make it.
