Healthy Food Ideas

One of the recipes I’ve been working on for our new issue is just not cooperating. I’ve done eight different iterations of the basic idea, tweaking and changing, going back to the drawing board, reading, starting again.

This happens. Sometimes inspiration comes, but sometimes when I’m struggling with a recipe it’s a sign the basic idea is not good enough. It may be the recipe doesn’t quite fit into the ethos of An Honest Kitchen; the idea itself is not interesting enough; or I just can’t make it delicious enough, given the parameters of healthy, honest food.

The day after I made the decision to ditch this recipe, inspiration struck. I now have a version, which is quite different, but I’m really happy with.
