Sometimes I think we complicate life unnecessarily. I’ve been reading an interesting blog lately – Becoming Minimalist. Some of it is a bit intense but if you take the general idea we do better with less…less stuff. So I have attempted culling some of my “stuff” and buying less. It’s not easy and I often think I will need items that I haven’t used for years or ever, for that matter. I have a bit of a problem in my pantry…I love to keep it well stocked…you know, just in case! I love baking and cooking and much of the time I like recipes that require a little bit of skill or complications.
In the spirit of “becoming minimalist”, today I bring you a very simple recipe requiring just one ingredient – Parmesan cheese. I see this abounds on the web but sometimes we need reminding that even simple is good or even great. These can be whipped up to have with drinks and nibbles or to add crunch and interest to a salad or try adding dried herbs or spices to the cheese. Simple!
Enjoy your weekend!
Heat the oven to 200C/400F.
Finely grate enough Parmesan cheese. Cover a baking tray with non stick paper or a silicone mat.
Take spoonfuls of cheese and place piles of cheese onto the baking paper leaving about 3 or 4cm between each. Flatten and spread out the cheese just a little.
Bake in the oven for around 5 minutes but keep and eye on them.
Remove and allow to cool and crisp. If not crispy enough, pop back into the oven for a little longer.
