Eating the Alphabet: Everything (including the serving vessel) starts with the letter “B”

October 24, 2012 by Joan Nova in Food Challenge, Recipe Development, Rice/Risotto, Vegetables | 11 Comments

It wasn’t intended. I started to make some kind of dinner using about a 1/2 dozen fresh brussels sprouts.

I thought of a rice bowl. A brown rice bowl. Then, as I started to pull out other ingredients, I suddenly realized everything started with a “B” and I got amused. (I’m easy that way.)

brown rice
brussels sprouts
black pepper
black salt
blue cheese
balsamic glaze

I wonder doubt I could do the same thing with the remaining 25 letters though a few pop  into my mind:

pasta, peas, proscuitto and pistachio pesto on a plate
brisket bbq on a buttered bun
cheesy and creamy cauliflower with coriander in a cup

OK, I give up. Anyone else want to play? Leave your 1-letter meal suggestion including serving vessel in comments below.

    Two that come to mind: sizzling sirloin steak, sugar peas, sweet potatoes with sour cream on a serving platter
    tea leaf salad, tenderloin steak with tellicherry peppercorns, and tea infused jasmine rice on a tray.
    Clever game.
