Star Anise? The food looks like tide-pooling! This is what I thought until this dish went in the oven. This is one of the most outstanding vegetarian dishes I have ever made. It is spectacular. The flavors are complex while being inviting. Mixing the herbs together takes a while. Once it is in the oven, though, there is plenty of time to drink wine and relax.
