If you’re just catching up, we’ve been on a quest to decipher the missing ingredient from FirstHusband’s handwritten one pot hit recipe. To see the entire recipe, check out “guess (or suggest) the missing ingredients, win a cookbook.” To read about our clues and continued thought process, check out “It’s a Cook-Off!” We’ve had LOTS of guesses and suggestions, none of which really seemed just right.
But I got to thinking about it. FavoriteSon LOVED it. Loved it? It had tomatoes in it. Spinach. Chick peas? big whoop. What would make FavoriteSon – my little carnivore – LOVE it?
I typically buy and keep one of the following on hand almost all the time:
So am I right? I have no idea. But when I mentioned it to FirstHusband, he relied: “Could be, I’ll give it a try.”
It sure would explain why FavoriteSon loved it.
So, this is the first version we’ll try and I’ll let you know how it turns out. But, DON’T LET THIS STOP YOU from making additional suggestions! I’m not sure I’m right. It’s just a guess.
