Cooking With John – Part 4

I’m going to grate. I decided I had three red-skinned potatoes sitting there sprouting eyes. I cleaned those up and I grated them. And I put them in a skillet with some olive oil and a little bit of water on a hot fire to cook to coat the pan. I drained the white beans and I …..

I chopped up a half a jalapeno pepper and took the seeds out. And I had some crushed walnuts and I added those and some golden raisins and a few caraway seeds.

Well, what I didn’t realize was that I was making a white bean chili thickened with grated potato. And it was a vegetarian dish and really this in itself was enough of a meal.

I was watching Sara Moulten on TV and she had this wonderful woman from India and they were doing this fusion of Asian cooking. And this idea of taking vegetables and adding some spices to it, it was kind of lingering in my mind. So it wasn’t though I was just grabbing everything. I kind of have an organic sense of what goes together.
