The Splendid Table: Why we should be eating more purple sea urchins
In this episode, we talk about the species of sea urchin that we should be eating more of, not only because they are a delicious upgrade to many standard dishes, but also to help revive Pacific Ocean aquaculture; chef, biochemist and free diver Ali Bouzari joins Francis Lam. Rolando Beramendi, author of Autentico, introduces us to the Italian way with rice salads. Best-selling author Alison Roman wants you to reinvent your breakfast using savory ingredients. And, America’s Test Kitchen brings us the perfect homemade falafel. Francis also talks with listeners about nutritional yeast on Indian-inspired spicy popcorn, suggestions for long-cooked vegetarian dishes for a lazy Sunday - lasagna, anyone?! - and using bitters in both cocktails and non-alcoholic drinks.
