I didn’t anticipate a lot of things about the life I’m living now. I didn’t anticipate how happy it was possible to be or that work/life balance would flow naturally from that peace. I didn’t know I would ever be comfortable with another human being watching me brush my teeth. I didn’t know that I would plan a wedding. But more than all of that, I didn’t know how it would change my day-to-day eating habits. That was truly unfathomable. From the moment we met, I knew I wanted to be with him forever. I did not, however, know that I would be inspired to adopt a largely vegetarian diet. While I still identify as a conscientious omnivore, my daily life is now lived as a vegetarian. With, admittedly, the odd oyster thrown in. This dish is the epitome of our everyday food. Simple, seasonal, vegetarian, one pan, and fast—a southern take on Seussian green eggs that’s my personal favorite in a growing arsenal of vegetarian meals.
