Cauldron Knowledge

Use whatever
vegetables you have;
don't fear improvisation.
Give the onions enough time alone to grow sweet in the pan.

Grate the beets in the sink.
The red beets make it beautiful.
They will also stain your hand.
Don't grate your thumb.

It's not vegetarian;
it has my blood in it.
Don't be afraid of the strength
of your own right arm.
