I wasn't kidding about being able to use lard in almost anything. Here I've got polenta, a beet-carrot brownie, collard greens and lentils. There is a lot of olive oil bandied about in these recipes. So silly.
Side note: beet-carrot brownies are super easy. I buy brownie mix, puree carrots and beets and mix them all together. If the batter isn't wet enough I add a little milk. You can play with the proportions - I like mine pretty root veg heavy. They cook a little differently than regular brownies and can take a little longer - keep an eye on them. Here I'm just reheating the brownie in lard for funzies.
