The reason I'm torn is this book absolutely features a way of eating that's very close to how I like to eat. Plant-heavy, international flavors, and not too much dependence on oil for flavor. The recipe selection is good in that it's totally stuff I'd probably eat, beginning to end. The recipe selection is a little repetitive, though - I wouldn't hate on a book for having lots of legume recipes, but a lentil soup and a split pea soup together in a book that only has 30 recipes (especially when there's also a dhal recipe) is a bit much. (They also explain how to make oven baked tortilla chips at least twice.) A few of the basic recipes are a little too basic: the perfectly steamed potatoes may as well have been in the timing charts in the back of the book, "garnishes" notwithstanding. And several recipes, particularly the Indian food, seem to be missing spices I remember being pretty key to the right flavor.
The biggest issue, though, is that this book needs an editorial hand in a huge way. It feels like the authors just randomly threw together some recipes they like without much thought to balancing the book. The "epic tips" throughout are usually not deep or mysterious cooking insights, and several times I found myself thinking of what tip I'd offer when making a recipe of that type. (Like seriously, you have a recipe with "no farts" in the name and you don't mention that soaking the beans and discarding the soaking water can reduce digestion issues - including farts? Or that doing so can reduce cooking time for those recipes by more than half?) The first or second recipe out the gate calls for a recipe that's found at a website; the link takes you to a 404, and no amount of searching on the linked site finds the recipe. The authors don't want to explain safety instructions, ok. The authors don't know how it works, ok. They just want to share their recipes and cuss a lot I guess.
I guess I might not be the lazy f@ck they wrote the book for. $10 seems pretty steep for this number of recipes, the repetition, the lack of editing, and the general sense I got of non-expertise masquerading as expertise. Three stars for being something not overwhelming I can refer to when I am truly out of juice.
