Ok, here is our detox-but-its-still-a-holiday-week compromise dish for the next few days/weeks/months.
How was your fourth? We did a party on Tuesday and yesterday with friends/toddlers/grilling, I ate way too much beef and loved slash regretted it, and I feel like I can't shower enough times to become not sweaty. Suggestions welcome for that one. The humidity around here is quite excessive.
So let's talk about this compromise food. Wonderful veggie base, corn and tomatoes that are getting just so good this time of year. Garlic for your health and happiness. Then for mental health and protein pancetta and cheese because you're worth it, basil at the end because of course there is. The best part of it is that it's made super quickly so the ingredients stay super fresh and not mushy at all, and we have a healthy + worth it meal in half an hour or so with very little fuss.
