Friday Mish Mash

mé·lange: (n.) A motley assortment of things.

Got some fruit? Got some vegetables? Great. Who cares what kind they are? Throw 'em in a pan with some brown sugar and you've got a
Melange.

Carrot and Fruit Melange
Weight Watchers Revised Program Cookbook, 1972


4 oz. diced cooked carrots
1/2 cup cooked rice (or 1/2 cup bean sprouts)
3 tablespoons water
1 small orange cut in segments (or 1 small apple, cored and diced)
1 tsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. margarine

Combine all ingredients and heat gently. Makes one serving.

Surprisingly, I found this mixture quite appealing. So much so, that I am planning to create many more melanges and add them to my recipe repertoire.

Such as:
  • Cucumber Banana Melange
  • Eggplant Rhubarb Melange
  • Pepperoni Pineapple Melange
  • Frankfurter Strawberry Melange
Seriously. The possibilities are endless. Feel free to add your own to the list...
