New Year, New Ingredients

Sometimes even the most adventurous cooks and eaters can fall into a food rut, and while I don't consider myself amongst the most adventurous, I do lament that I have several "safe eating" patterns that I've fallen into in 2010.

With that in mind, I want to make a list of ingredients that I rarely, or never use, but would like to. Here are a few to get me started:
  • Eggplant
  • Tofu
  • Mussels
  • Tarragon
  • Fennel
  • Leafy greens (kale, mustard greens, etc.)
What ingredients do you shy away from? What would you like to see me experiment with in 2011? What are your New Years resolutions?

Happy New Year!

What about planting a garden and cooking with the stuff you grow yourself? That would be fun!

Ooh I was not a fan of aubergine aka eggplant, tofu and kale. Now having found ways to make them palatable for me, I am happy to eat them. I hope you do too.

Try curly kale chips. Lots of recipes on the net. Its delicious.

Happy New Year to you.
