The winter solstice officially introduces the length of nights and shortness of days. Translation: cold nights, cold days. The one pot meal -a fusion of flavors, proteins, vegetables and herbs- is the simplest, quickest approach to warming up the self or family for winter.
>Shred the cabbage with a grater, toss it with the apple cider vinegar, and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, salt, and pepper. Wash the carrots thoroughly and shop fine. Toss them in the bowl with the olive oil salt and pepper. Once the cabbage has pickled slightly (at least 40 minutes before serving), combine it in a bowl with the carrots and toss. Serve.
I am starting off the Soul Food Revival series with Red Rice- my Aunt Sara Jean's signature dish and one of our family's most prized recipes. It is innocuous in many Charleston homes but rarely appears in restaurants - it is a taste of 'real' Charleston, if you will. Red Rice is essentially a tomato pilau that might remind you of a simplified Spanish peaella, with sausauge but no seafood. It's rich, satisfying flavors inspire a cultlike following among those who make and eat it. It is a simple one pot dish that you can prep in 10 minutes and leave to it's on devices while you attend to other matters around the house. When it's all said and done, you get a warm bowl of savory goodness that is a snap to make.
