Winter on the farm
In the courtyard of the Dzong (something like a temple in Bhutan) where I studied and worked this summer, they were burning branches as part of a week-long ritual. The smoke mingled with the clouds in such a way to make even the most devout atheists question themselves.
There is so much Thyme in my garden — I’ve been trying to find delicious recipes that incorporate fresh Thyme, that aren’t too thyme consuming (hehe). I finally took matters into my own hands and took a different approach to an old recipe I knew. I sauteed tofu with parmesan and thyme to make a crispy outer layer, and added some simple spaghetti with olive oil and thyme garnish. The meal was delicious, and super quick to make. Total prep/cooking time: 20 minutes. Yum!
