I used the herb,spice mixture with beef mince to make meatballs – very tasty. I only used 1/2 the parsley on a double batch (ie.1 tbs). Added in the tbs and thought it looked sufficient for the amount of mince. Will definitely make again.
Oh good glad to hear it!
I made a batch X6, so 12 servings.
I opted to just place all of the meatballs on parchment lined baking trays and bake at 400; they were fully cooked in under 10 minutes. Saved me time, oil/calories and no scrubbing!!!
I’m finding batch cooking and keeping several already-ready-already protein options in the fridge to be a major sanity saver, this round!!!
I had no idea we could have Sauerkraut on Ph2 so this was a very nice change. The chicken broth and sauerkraut together created a nice bold flavor. Again, having sauerkraut was a nice change in flavor for the Ph2. I also finally learned how to spell Sauerkraut after all these years 🙂
Yes huh! Afterall, Sauerkraut is just cabbage and salt and water basically ;0, all P2 approved things!
Delicious! Didn’t have any chard so I made the roasted radishes. Came out great!
wonderful so glad to hear it!
