Remember Remember... Guy Fawkes' Purple Shepherd's Pie

in #food4 years ago (edited)

Welcome back my fellow revolutionists!

It's the weekend and just in time to serve up some of this colorful deliciousness. Not only will I show you how to make the best mashed caulitaters you've ever had, but I'll demonstrate how to combine them into this cake-like pie. It's all about the layers. This might even make a good April fools' joke or at the very least, impress your mom.

How do we get this beautiful purple icing color? You just have to find a purple cauliflower and I'm told they're more rare than a gold foil Archmage Arius so if you can't find one, a regular one will do just fine.


Besides the cool look, you'll taste how much flavor is packed in each layer, which is pretty impressive considering the amount of veggies. And best of all, it's full of the protein and nutrients your body craves without any of the grease, carbs and sugars it doesn't need.

I have to say that this dish will take some time but all I ask is that you go for it once and I promise you won't be disappointed. You will have leftovers for at least three days so think of the prep and cooking time as a small investment that will pay out in no-cook-just-microwave dividends.

I'd like to dedicate this recipe to Guy Fawkes. As the current symbol of privacy and defiance against corruption, Fawkes represents a belief that injustice can and should be fought. My favorite quote of his shows the level of his commitment to the cause he so arduously believed in and eventually died for:

"A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy."

One of the most amazing aspects of the Steemit platform is that it allows all of us to anonymously voice our opinions, to debate ideas and (in my case) to share recipes with the entire community around the globe. Our personal information is available to the highest bidder; from mega corporations to darknet markets. Since we are the product, remaining vigilant about our privacy is of utmost importance. Using private browsers, creating more complex and longer passwords, and using VPN's are just a few of the many methods available to keep us somewhat protected.

In the future, I believe that becoming invisible online will be essential not only for our safety and mental well-being but for a list of other impending "diseases" yet to be discovered that await those who's online presence is an open book.

Stay private, buy crypto and as always, COOK!

My contribution to the revolutionist movement will be to turn the recipes I post on this blog into The Revolutionist Cookbook and eventually open a restaurant where only cryptocurrency is accepted. Where tipping won’t be necessary as everyone will be paid full salaries and where simple and healthy ingredients will meet delicious cuisine. Like open source code, all of my recipes will be available to the public in full detail and any improvements offered will be embraced and possibly added to the menu in their perfected form. Any donations to the cause are much appreciated either by up-vote or wallet of choice below.
