Guests Post by Anna Berman, Snacking in the Kitchen
I love my friends, but let’s be honest – they are a bunch of picky eaters! Alright, some of them are picky. Others are perfectly happy to eat whatever, whenever, wherever. Project “You Buy, I Cook” is my way to share cooking and dining experiences with friends – picky and otherwise. For the most part, I think the project challenges my friends to eat something new, try an exotic ingredient or discover an unusual flavor combination.
For the latest “You Buy, I Cook” I was the one challenged! The challenge, posed by my friend Nadiya, was to develop a recipe for Gluten Free and Dairy Free meatballs. Extra challenge points: no onions, minimum use of spices, and obviously no cheese, milk or bread.
Nadiya showed up with a pound of beef, some instant oatmeal, a few eggs, diced tomatoes, and tomato sauce. We rolled up our sleeves (and later meatballs) and went to work.
