“I like recipes that make it easy on normal days. Like this one. A few good ingredients, which you probably already have at home anyway, and a warm meal is on the table. If you don't like anchovy fillets or just want to eat vegan, just leave them out, the croutons still have enough spiciness thanks to the chili flakes. #stayhomekeepcooking”
