favourite 'new' family meal. i call it mexican risotto! black rice, corn sauce, fried greens, garlic and red onions, lime cashew cream and, for the grown ups, some homemade hotsauce. sidenote: this meal demands plating! the first time i cooked it, i mixed the cornsauce in with the black rice. two words: SUPERBAD.IDEA! the meal had this weird brown greyish colour and both my husband and daughter looked at it with horror. until they tasted it, and it was actually great tasting. so the second time i took the effort to plate it nicely, like i do when i plate a dish for work, and their reaction with worth all of my labour. smiles, words of approval and sheer joy in eating. the power of beauty!
