Ask chef Chad Townsend about the daily changes to the chalkboard menu at Salt of the Earth restaurant, and he'll explain that they're largely inspired by what's being harvested at nearby Garfield Community Farm.

One challenge, says the chef, is that vegetables don't have much by way of natural fats. In this recipe shared with Wine Spectator, for example, a tangy goat's milk yogurt balances the spice of the berbere and the residual sweetness of the carrots and radishes.
