Rainbow Carrots

Rainbow Carrots

Dr. Wife and I have been using Green Bean Delivery for a few months now, and although we have gotten a number of things that we didn’t particularly care for (and occasionally have struggled to use up everything we get each week) overall we’ve been fairly pleased with the service. When you are as busy as we are, having a few fresh ingredients brought to your door is a nice luxury. Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been getting some delicious rainbow carrots in our bin, and although we are starting to get a little bit of a backlog in carrots (after all, there are only so many carrots you can eat), this particular batch of carrots is particularly pretty.

What am I going to do with them? I’m thinking about trying to roast them on a bed of coffee beans, an idea I got from Coi: Stories and Recipes, a beautiful cookbook full of crazy west coast, locally sourced recipes. Although actually they aren’t really recipes as much as loosely outlined theories on dish creation. For example, the “recipes” don’t tell you quantities or oven temperatures. Just the theory behind the taste profiles and why certain ingredients work. How very. The result is that most of these “recipes” are going to be beyond me, although roasting some vegetables is something I don’t need instructions for … and I’m betting that roasting on a bed of coffee beans is gonna be kickass.
