Today is my group’s reveal day for the Secret Recipe Club. What is the SRC? Basically you are assigned a fellow participant’s blog by the organizer and then you pick a recipe of your choice from that blog and make your version of it. But it is a secret, you cannot reveal whom you picked and what you made until the established posting date and time. This month’s secret: Basil Polenta with Roasted Spinach and Tomatoes.
This month I was assigned a beautiful and tasty blog, Food Ramblings, written by Elizabeth. She started her blog like many other have, with the intentions of changing for a better lifestyle without sacrifying the taste. So far she has done a great job. There are many recipes to choose from, tons with seafood and shrimp too which I love. As usual a struggle when it came to choosong one recipe. COntenders were the yummy Garlic Cheese Monkey Bread and the rather unusual (so curious to try) Bacon and Brussels Sprout Mac and Cheese.
But I settle on a simple yet classical recipe full of roasted flavors, the Basil Polenta with Roasted Spinach and Tomatoes. I kept the same recipe for roasting the veggies but I added a bit to the polenta by giving one of my recipes. Two secret ingredients: cream and parmesan cheese!
