Yes. Artandcolour may be extended to creative food dishes!
Inspired by Stan Santos' excellent food blog, The Spamwise Chronicles, which emphasizes fresh, seasonal foods, I created a rice dish today. I'm calling it Carrot Confetti Rice, for obvious reasons! Basically, I grated fresh raw carrots and cooked them in with the Jasmine rice, about 10 minutes. They kept their nice orange color and still taste really fresh. I squeezed the juice of one lemon into the rice towards the end of the cooking time. When the rice and carrot mixture was finished cooking, I stirred in about a cup of teeny-tiny diced raw red Bell pepper and the green tops of a bunch of scallions. I finished it off with the zest of the lemon. It all tastes really bright and looks great on my 1930s pink Depression glass plates, the set I always ate from at my aunt Hoohoo's house.
