I have been craving fresh veggies. Guess my constant pushups when I want a cigarette has something to do with it. Maybe it’s my eat healthy gene that is kicking in. I have a tendency to go on auto-pilot when I grocery shop around the produce and then the gene takes over.
This happened to me recently. There I was, looking at my cart filled with asparagus, avocados, cucumbers, peppers, celery, romaine, red onions, and tomatoes without realizing I had spent a half hour or more in the fresh produce section. The problem is, I only went for eggs, milk, and coffee.
Back at home, I am looking at my sink filled with veggies and I am thinking of what I am going to do with them.
That’s when the spirit of my recently passed chef mentor, the great French Master Chef Jean La Font spoke to me.
“Gazpacho”, he whispered!
