This is a proposed modification to the 15 ingredients list. If you were allowed to have seven spices as "freebies" to open up your 15 ingredients list, what would those 7 spices be? For the purposes of this thread I am not considering alliums (onions, shallots, garlic, etc.) as spices, those would have to stay in your ingredient list.)
Im thinking mine would be:
how does your list affect your 15 items?
Mine would now look like this
5. beans (yes cheating a bit, probably pinto if i have to pick one)
12. peppers (pushing the limits here too, red bell if i need to pick)
15. seven spices
Still not easy. I want to add pork, fish, and some kind of greens-probably spinach, and a fruit-maybe banana or apple. I know that those settling the west had to do with a whole lot less, makes you appreciate their lives - even if they did supplement their diet with what they found along the way.
