Well, look at that.
Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything Vegetarian should be titled, "How to Cook Everything except Orach Vegetarian," as it has no recipe for orach in it. Hell, I barely know what orach is, so surely this expert should know more, right?
I chose Bittman's Rich Spinach Gratin recipe to use up three more eggs today. Gratin that tastes more like a custard? Really, sign me up.
I was entertained with the purple water that washing the orach produced, almost like purple beet water. I'm sure the compost heap enjoyed the extra anti-oxidants from the colored water.
