Against all Grain, by Danielle Walker is ABSOLUTELY amazing!!!!! The recipes are simple and delicious. Some of my favorites; pesto-stuffed prosciutto chicken on page 122, is utterly addicting…and I didn’t have prosciutto on hand so I substituted a fabulous Italian salami. Usually, I give my husband a larger portion but this dish….I literally walked over and asked to share some of his. The cauliflower absorbs the luscious flavor and has a wonderful texture. The second time I made the recipe I doubled up on the cauliflower and…well, I used Italian double smoked bacon instead of prosciutto….again….mouth watering.
Meatloaf meatballs on page 148 were another winner. Very easy to prepare, sumptuous and delightfully filling. For preparation ease, I used a store bought organic marinara sauce and sprinkled some mozzarella cheese on top of the meatballs, serving them on large fresh tomato slices and a chopped basil. We had leftovers…thank goodness and a bit surprising because they were delicious. I diced up the meatballs and sauteed them in a pan and placed them on an iceberg salad with onions, tomato’s, buffalo mozzarella and lightly dressed with olive oil.
