I’m feeling a little guilty about this one because I took something totally healthy and mixed it up with something totally unhealthy. Specifically, I took some nice, low-cal sprouts and then added a bunch of brie.
I did start out with some not-so-naughty goat cheese. Goat cheese is nice and light and tangy, but it was not meant to be. Then I dropped the cheese altogether and used some roasted eggplant. It was perfect, right? All those veggies and no fat. But again, it was not meant to be.
I knew what the answer was, because I’d been avoiding it all along. Brie. Lovely, creamy, perfect brie. Besides, a little bit of something that you really really love is better than a lot of something you’re indifferent to. So I enjoyed a little bit. It was the perfect lunch.
This would be also fun as a cheese-ball type thing, rolled in nuts and thyme and pepper and served with a mound of crackers. Cover it if it’s in the fridge so that it will retain its bright green color,and let it come to room temperature before serving.
