Today’s Resolution: Learn To Love a New Ingredient

The days that I discovered garlic, strawberries, goat cheese and pickles were probably the most blissful days of my food-consuming life and it’s a bummer that I can’t recall them. In an effort to recapture those taste-budding moments, we have a resolution that asks us all to learn to love a new ingredient.

As Patrick and I have been trying to eat healthier, we’ve been trying all kinds of new foods that we didn’t even know existed, or rather, we didn’t know could taste good. Cauliflower baked on high with curry? Delicious. Green beans stir-fried with red peppers and garlic? Amazing. This resolution requires a whole new ingredient though, so do your research to see how it’s used and perhaps try a recipe that requires you to really explore the flavor.
