We're so excited to share some of our favorite lunch recipes through our Let's Lunch series — it'll be all the inspiration you need to take your midday meal to the next level. Today, former food editor Jesse Szewczyk shares his favorite lunch recipe.
I’ve been a fan of Ina Garten for as long as I can remember. Every single recipe I make of hers is delicious! And while some of them (like her chocolate cake) are super popular and well-known, others remain sleeper hits — and these under-the-radar recipes are some of my favorites. Case in point? The cauliflower toast from Ina’s cookbook Cook Like a Pro.
The first time I made this recipe I was blown away. I stumbled across it online and was immediately hooked. I’ve made it over and over again, and I never get sick of it. It has since become my go-to Ina recipe. Sure, it’s not as flashy as a chocolate cake, but it’s seriously good, and I think everyone should know about it.
These toasts are everything I could want from a weekday lunch. They’re simple and hearty, but not too heavy. The roasted cauliflower and cheese meld together, with bites of salty prosciutto breaking through. I like to make a double batch of the topping and stash it in my freezer so all I have to do is quickly throw it together.
