No long explanations today about why this is delicious. All you need to know is this is very low-carb as the mentioned ‘crumb’ is simply finely grated pecorino and it is incredibly delicious. The cheese adds a lovely richness and feels completely indulgent. Served on a salad of baby butter lettuce, tomatoes, bocconcini and avo, this makes a great lunch or supper.
