Suggestible? Me? Why, whatever do you mean? Sure, my sister-in-law Jane sent a link to a roasted broccoli recipe that featured lovely charred stalks of broccoli bathed in garlicky olive oil a couple of days ago, and I whipped up a batch last night, but c’mon. I’m a woman of ideas … options … and strong cravings coupled with OCD, as it turns out.
I didn’t feel like making a bunch of other stuff for dinner, too, so the broccoli was the featured player. I made a little extra garlic oil at the start, boiled up some soba, toasted some pine nuts, and tossed the whole thing together for a quick and somewhat light meal (if you ignore the vat of oil). It was just a tiny bit bland, so I broke out the sriracha, which is excellent on all manner of foods, but especially noodles, which just drink it in.
