September’s Iron Chef dinner was a celebration of not only seeds, but also the 6th anniversary of our monthly dinner group. Over the years, we’ve covered 60+ ingredients/themes including pickled/fermented, family traditions, beets, clementines, aphrodisiacs, chili peppers, tacos and crock pot. This month’s dinner was delicious, and quite substantial. Surprisingly, there were only three different seeds used in eight dishes—poppy seeds, sunflower seeds and chia seeds. But the range of dishes was impressive—everything from lettuce wraps to lasagna, and chia seed pudding to coconut ginger-carrot soup.
