This is my second recipe as a member of the The Food Matters Project. Last week, I just did not have enough time to track down my ingredients but this week, normalcy returns and I managed to get everything although, I was one orange short. I had no vision what this would like or taste like and I admit, I was happily surprised. I am not sure why I am surprised since Marc Bittman has not steered me wrong and I trust in his recipes, especially with the choices he suggests.
I made this dish and served it on soba noodles which was a good mix. Alternatives are rice or quinoa and I think all three would be yummy. I followed this recipe almost exactly. I was short that orange so I did not have as much zest and I added some juice from the container to the fresh orange juice to make enough for cooking. The citrus flavor turned out to come through clearly and we like that. The honey gave it very slight sweet taste and all the flavors blended beautifully. This is a winning recipe.
