Our 17th potluck

Hello Mindful Cooks,

First, a warm welcome to the newest member of our circle, Sigrid K. here in Portland, who may have been vegetarian longer than any of us----over 40 years. Can anyone top that?

Mary says this dish "consists of a lot of ordinary vegetables with rice, no fancy seasonings. I worried that it might be boring and need spicing up. But those ordinary vegetables came together magically. ... I think the avocado garnish is important."
