Can I just say, if I could eat paper, I would eat this book! I love her pictures of beautiful food. I am always trying to eat more vegetables and trying even harder to keep it interesting- I seem to make roasted vegetables over and over, until now I am sort of just done with them! Vegetables can be sort of, well…boring. I needed some inspiration.
This book gave me just that. I love the sound of these recipes of hers:
Broccoli Raab and Creamy Goat Cheese Baked Pasta Gratin…YUMMMM
Quinoa & Bean Salad with Tomato-Nectarine-Curry Dressing…WhaaaT?
Two-Potato Red Onion & Bell Pepper Taco with Lime-Chipotle Sauce….The sauce alone, guys!
The Contents are separated into:
There is an intro and follow up in each chapter and the book for essential techniques…I didn’t love the overkill on this, as I sort of know how to cook the basics, but if you are a newbie, this would be really helpful information on the “how-to’s” of cooking vegetables and handling ingredients, like “Tips & Strategies for Tortillas.”
Because I am in LOOOOOVE with the toast chapter, I made this ridiculously good avocado toast- Now don’t be dismissive! Avocado toast recipes are a dime a dozen, right now, but this one is special: pickled beets and deliciousness abound. My hubs went crazy for this, and we had to have it two days in a row! So good:
Avocado Toast with Baby Kale, Blue Cheese, Pecans, Quick-Pickled Radishes, and Honey
Ridiculous, right?! So freaking good. I don’t think my pics do this justice at all- I was rushing through taking them, so I could stuff this in my mouth! The blue cheese and pecans were deal breakers for me- this is my new toast.
If you need veggie inspiration like I did, then this book is for you. This book is going on my gift list this year for sure! For everyone.
