Roasted Poblano and Eggs
Visiting family in Chicago during St. Patrick’s Day shocked me when I saw the Chicago River, which winds along Wacker Drive, to be as green as a four-leaf clover. Other cities across America celebrate the holiday with the color green as well. Parades, hats, banners and clothing of all types are green as the Emerald Isle in tribute to St. Patrick’s Day.
Joining friends at local pubs on this special day is a time to enjoy a beer and a sandwich that are also bright green. I am generally OK with these menu choices but find myself less enchanted with artificial green food. So, I began searching for culinary options that more naturally reflect a green hue.
I have experimented with green risotto or pasta, or a side of asparagus or broccoli with mixed results even though I personally adore green vegetables any time of year. But one “green dish” stands out for me and everyone who eats it more than any other. This involves the joy of making a green laced breakfast or lunch with roasted poblano chili peppers that evoke warm, delicious memories.
