my husband almost refuses to eat things termed ‘loaf’. i think i am winning him over though. you might have figured by now that i am a vegetarian, in fact, i grew up one. consequently, i’ve always considered ‘loaf’ the envy of all food groups. mmm, melt in your mouth, loaf. imagine my surprise when i find that real people recoil in horror when faced with one. i am here to say, “try it, you’ll like it.” and brussel sprouts too, while you’re at it.
only fresh ones though. just cut off the stems and peel the outer leaves, then chuck them in an inch of boiling, salted water. simmer, covered, for ten minutes and then toss with butter and salt. it’s hard to say if they’re still good for you after this point, but still good nonetheless.
am i convincing anyone yet? comeon. loaf typically consists of eggs, cottage cheese, walnuts, special k (cereal, imagine that) and seasoning. nothing that will kill you. the trick is coming up with the right combination of ingredients. this recipe did a good job, and if you’re interested, i’ll try to scare up my other favorite recipe and tack it on later.
