Shiitake, King Oyster, and Brown Beech mushrooms with leeks, tomato, miso and broad noodles. On tasting, I found it lacking, not wanting to add more salt I added a little herbed vinegar. The vinegar added amazing depth to flavors already there!

Sauteed Veggies with Egg and Black Beans
Today begins a 60 day “reset” with regards to my health and what I choose to ingest. This week starts vegetarian meals only, next week I’ll go vegan. First meal, sauteed savoy and red cabbage, carrots, red bell pepper, and leeks topped with black beans, and a sunny side egg. The sauté was finished with Chipotle oil and summer herb vinegar. The egg is sprinkled with fresh thyme and ghost pepper salt.
