I strayed quite far from this recipe. As some of you know Eric and I have a reputation for being picky eaters. We don’t like brussel sprouts or blue cheese. Despite not being keen on either of these ingredients, I was excited that Marcia choose this recipe. Marcia: Next time I make this recipe I promise to be more adventurous and try it with the blue cheese and brussel sprouts!
This recipe really highlights the great thing about Bittman’s food matters cookbook. The recipes are well balanced, simple and act like a template. Ingredients can be substituted to match your taste or the food in your fridge!
We were meant to go to an Oscar party last night but Eric was sick. I needed to throw something together for dinner and this recipe was great for using things up in our fridge.
- I substituted the brussel sprouts with spinach
- I substituted fontina for blue cheese
- I substituted dried cranberries for figs
