In loving, living memory, John Melançon 1928 – 2007
Spaghetti rigati, al dente
1 Onion, chopped
2 heads Brocolli, sliced for the stems and long divided florets for the rest
Pureed/ground/extremely finely chopped carrot (a failed attempt at juicing carrots, rescued by this recipe)
Fresh jalepeño and that small long skinny orange pepper.
Can of navy beans (used Goya easy-open 15 ounce).
Stems go in first, at the same time as the onions, in a wok in a little bit of olive oil.
Add some salt. Some celery seed. A little poultry seasoning (coriander, mostly).
Start the pasta.
When onions start to be decently fried, put in the broccoli florets and the carrot mini-chips.
Add finely chopped hot peppers.
Add a little pearl river bridge superior light soy sauce.
Stir a lot.
Add navy beans, half to the vegetables and half to the just-drained pasta.
Stir both some more. Heat can be turned off at this point.
Optionally serve with yeast flakes, additional thinly sliced hot pepper, soy sauce, sirachi sauce.
