As most of you know, my cozy mysteries include recipes. Angelica was cooking and I needed something for her to make. I thought it might be nice to include a vegetarian dish for my readers, so out came one of my favorite vegetarian cookbooks.
I selected a recipe (helpful when these books have gorgeous photography) and read it over to decide how to make it mine. It featured filo dough, broccoli, and feta cheese. Hmm. I'm not a big fan of broccoli mixed with cheese, and I'm REALLY not fond of feta cheese. Well, I needed to make the recipe my own anyway right?
So, out went the feta. But wait, I thought why keep the broccoli when I prefer onions and peppers. And if it needs cheese to bind it, why not use mozzerella? And since onions, peppers and mozzerella sound like a pizza, why not add sausage to the mix?
So much for my good intenions on a nice vegetarian recipe.
Hitting the grocery store later today to buy the ingredients as I intend to test the recipe to make sure it works for the book.
I'll let you know how it works out.
