Snax Dinner and Spice Rainbow

It all started with the idea to recreate mohawk bend's buffalo cauliflower. I tried to think of other things that go with buffalo wings... and eventually, we had:

* truffle fries (w/sauteed garlic, fresh parsley and mint)--thank you, mandoline slicer!

buffalo cauliflower with bleu cheese, carrots, and celery

'spinach' dip (using sauteed/braised collards w garlic)

* tortilla chips

The 'spinach dip' looked a bit weird, but it was tasty, and the leftovers made an incredible pasta sauce.


I sent my mom a package of less-common spices a while back. Here they are as a rainbow: kalonji onion (nigella), black mustard, sumac, aleppo chili flakes, fenugreek, turmeric, berberé, allspice, coriander, fennel seed, oregano, za’atar, caraway (not pictured: kala namak).
