Not every dish is a looker. This dish reminds me of the ugly duckling, you know the tale where at the end we realise that even ugly ducklings are still delicious to eat? I mean, we try and make it look a little better by drizzling it with a little olive oil and placing neatly diced apple on top but somehow it still ends up looking remarkably like a swamp. But hey, If Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall can argue for wonky parsnips then I can argue for sorta strangely grey food, especially when it tastes this darn good! If you really care that much about looks then apart from you having learnt nothing from the meaningful work of Jack Black and Gwyneth Paltrow you can consider the fact that this makes an amazing vegetarian filling for roasted peppers, makes incredible mushroom “arancini” when breadcrumbed and fried (especially if cheekily stuffed with some cheese!) and knocks it out the park taking the place of rice in a burrito style wrap. But for me, I’m eating it out of a bowl relishing it’s ugliness and deliciousness all at the same time.
