I have been on a quest. An elusive one that has driven me to the point of almost cheating. But fortunately, I haven’t succumbed to it yet and today’s posting is the reason why.
What, you ask? Danny’s on a quest for steam? Of all things…steam?
Let me explain. There’s something beautiful about it – the swirls and white wisps dancing over the food ascending higher until it dissipates. They’re fleeting and if not captured just at the right moment — gone.
I’ve wanted to cheat. But how do you cheat with steam? Well, I’ve read how some photographers use smoke machines behind the food to replicate this beautiful moment. I have a handheld steamer sitting in the laundry room and I have thought about using it. But in all honesty, it’s been more a factor of laziness that has prevented me from doing so.
But on this wonderful evening and with this simple, yet wonderfully flavorful recipe, I caught that elusive moment on camera. For you camera buffs and photographers, I hope you can relate.
For those of you just interested in the recipe, keep reading because it’s delish!
What makes this dish outstanding are the bits and pieces of celery, onion and sun dried tomatoes that add texture and a deep, sweet flavor to every forkful. And when served with hearty brown rice, it’s a truly satisfying meal.
As always, may you enjoy the recipe and my prized “steam” photo above!
