The Five Minute Plate

Sometimes I crave clean and simple food: not too spicy, sweet, tangy or salty; not marinated, braised, slow-cooked or caramelized. In fact I crave--and eat--this kind of food a lot, and I think it represents an important swathe of the Ten Ingredient Project mealscape.

Additionally, let's face it: whipping up culinary wonders isn't in the cards every day.

Regardless of how complicated a meal's preparation, vegetables and fruits always deserve to be the main course. Yes! That is the single most important thing I learned about eating right.

I didn't intend to photograph or blog about this humble plate, but in the spirit of honoring not being in the mood to cook and the role that sentiment plays in ten-ingredient eating, I hereby give you...
