So I have a double whammy today. First, since it’s strawberry season here in Mississippi, here’s a quick little three ingredient recipe idea.
You will need some Nutella, fresh strawberries, and some good bread, like say a loaf of ciabatta (my preference) or maybe a loaf of French bread. Cut the bread into slices and toast on a baking sheet under the broiler until golden brown. Spread some Nutella on the bread, then top with sliced strawberries. Place under the broiler just until the strawberries are warm and start to sizzle. (This is tricky because if you don’t watch it, the Nutella can get black really quick. A kitchen torch would be so much better for this job if you have one.)
I’m telling you, my daughter and I just love this and it’s so quick and easy. You could even use a whole grain bread to bump up the nutrition factor, but I prefer a chewy bread.
Alright, here’s one of my latest recipes, White Bean and Roasted Veggie Chimichangas with Three-Cheese Sauce. I seriously need to incorporate vegetables into my diet, but I struggle with this. I loved the way this turned out the other day. These chimichangas could be topped with something much less fattening than a cheese sauce, but I wanted something creamy and rich on them to cut all the healthy. Just kidding. Can you tell I need a diet makeover? But yes, they could be topped with something lighter like a salsa; however, there is nothing really Mexican about them except for the tortilla and the name. This would be a great recipe to make your own and stuff anything in them that you had in your refrigerator. These veggies are what I had in mine.
