Panzanella, or bread salad, is a great way to get rid of stale bread and take advantage of gorgeous summer tomatoes.
This is a loose recipe that can be adapted based on what you have on hand. I had two leftover dinner rolls and could think of no better use for them than this salad. It is simple, hearty, and delicious.
I can’t believe I’m really presenting this as a “recipe.”
There are three ways I could pitch this.
First, I could emphasize that there are only three ingredients, which is far fewer than in microwave popcorn. But fewer ingredients doesn’t necessarily mean its any healthier.
Second, I could emphasize that this recipe is so simple that a monkey could follow it, assuming that a monkey knows enough about stovetop safety. But let’s be honest, sticking a bag the right side down in the microwave is obviously easier than this method.
Third, I could emphasize how cheap this recipe is. Microwave popcorn is surprisingly expensive. However, unless you eat a lot of popcorn, the difference only amounts to a few dollars.
Instead I will just say that this is how I make popcorn and I like it, so you should try it.
This is a loose recipe that is useful for fajitas, to eat with rice and beans, to put on salads, or to add to a sandwich. It’s great for cleaning out your fridge and using up half an onion that you have left over from some other recipe.
This recipe is loosely adapted from Cooking Stoned.
These roasted chickpeas are one of my favorite snacks. I usually have some in an airtight container in my cabinet at all times. I throw them on soups and in salad for a little crunch and eat them plain. In some ways, they’re like an adult version of corn nuts.
