Shout out to Dimes NYC for sharing this recipe. The Family Meal cookbook was a project by started by illustrators and designers to help out New York restaurants as a response to Covid-19 in 2020. We received the hard copy book as a gift – which is now sold out – but on their website, you can download recipes from restaurants and donate to their staff funds. We’d highly recommend trying this recipe out, but also heading over to the website to support NYC restaurants.
