2017 is shaping up to be the Year of the Unicorn.
And I don’t mean companies with a billion dollar plus valuation.
I am talking about whole foods that are naturally and “magically” cooked into rainbow colors.
Personally, I think it is because as humans, we all crave variety and Unicorn food provides a beautiful alternative to otherwise boring looking foods. Imagine a rainbow of pastel pink, baby blue and amethyst purple and you get the idea...
And Unicorn foods are super-food packed as well.
Well + Good’s quote, “Best of all, you don’t have to live in Brooklyn to eat like a mythical creature,” pretty much sums up the Unicorn food fad.
To make the Unicorn Noodles in the photo, (courtesy of the Indigo Kitchen), cook purple cabbage for five minutes in a pot. Then turn off the heat and add cooked glass noodles. Let the glass noodles soak for 5-10 minutes. Remove the noodles and place them in a bowl. Squeeze lemon juice over the noodles wherever you want them to be pink and watch the noodles turn pink before your eyes.
How do you feel about Unicorn food? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. I think it is a little odd but then I am a middle aged Chinese woman...
