I've been going a little overboard on the concept of eating the rainbow at every meal lately. But it makes for some pretty and tasty dinners!

Image

Coconut dahl, "cheater" biryani (short grain rice with frozen veg and some coconut milk yogurt tossed in toward the end), steamed purple cauliflower, and a quick lime-y salad with purple cabbage, a home grown bell pepper, and lemon cucumber!


Image

Tacos de papas y calabacitas with home grown tomatoes and romaine in lettuce cups topped with tahini-lime "crema!"

Image

Massaged purple kale with carrots and beets and a lemon/garlic/tahini dressing, topped with avocado, a home-grown heirloom and shiitake bacon!

Those look so delicious! (But mushrooms are evil and will not be eaten by me)

Those look really delicious! The last one especially, but that's just because I'm partial to avocado.

I also got the wrong idea the first time I read "shiitake bacon"

The massaged purple kale looks so delish!
