This recipe is from Good and Cheap.
Good and Cheap is a gorgeous cookbook for people with limited income, particularly on a $4/day food stamps budget. The PDF is free (ahora en Español!) and has been downloaded more than 15,000,000 times. I have more cookbooks, too!
Whenever Dan is away this is what I eat. Not because he doesn’t like it, he does! But it’s just the perfect meal for one. It also hits all the flavors that I like most—salty, garlicky, spicy, a little bitter and then crunchy and fatty from the toast. I’m drooling now. Broccoli toasts, a glass of wine and my favorite new silly show, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries on netflix? I’m in for my favorite kind of evening.
