Refried Beans, Pan-Sweetened Carrots, Thai Cabbage Salad, Spanish Rice

Dinner 11/9 by Dan

• Refried Beans

• Pan-Sweetened Carrots

• Thai Cabbage Salad

• Spanish Rice

Dan created a meal with a variety of flavors and textures that highlighted some of the last harvest. The beans were accented with fresh cilantro and chopped tomatoes from his garden. The carrots from Skyhouse's garden were steamed first and then pan-fried to bring out their caramelized sweetness. I'm not sure what the dressing was on his salad was, but it was creamy and was an enjoyable way to eat one of the last cabbages from his garden. The rice was flavorful and I still haven't found out how he ends up with each rice an individual grain rather than some bursting open. If he lets me in on the secret, I'll let you know!
