This recipe is prepared using a parchment-lined baking sheet, and that is pretty much it. This recipe was given to me from a friend who lives in San Francisco, and runs a catering business.

We worked out the kinks in my test kitchen, and now it is one of the dishes that she makes for her clients.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
