Review

'A simply brilliant book - modern, clever, beautiful and full of delicious recipes. Go Anna!' Jamie Oliver 'A Modern Way to Eat is a gorgeous revelation of a book. Vegetarian food that feels exciting and vibrant, by an author who writes and cooks with authenticity and passion. I will be buying it for everyone.' Sophie Dahl 'Anna Jones has discovered exactly how, with imagination and good taste, to create exciting and delicious vegetarian recipes that fit the modern requirement of nourishment - not forgetting the economical side either. Well done Anna.' Antonio Carluccio 'I can give you my word, these recipes not only work, they are also mind-blowingly delicious. So if you need more from your food, meals that are good for you, and the planet, tasty, beautiful, and unapologetically-meat-free, Anna's recipes are an affirming win-win-win! Count me in.' Tom Herbert, Fabulous Baker Brother 'This is an excellent vegetarian book. Yep I said it. It's bloody brilliant.' Gizzi Erskine 'Anna is a treasure. She's the rare cook able to expertly explore the rich realm of possibilities at the intersection of health/wellness and deliciousness. Her food is inspired and fresh, satisfying and beautiful - vibrant food for a vibrant life.' Heidi Swanson 'Simple, seasonal, veg-led fare that is as delicious as it is virtuous ... Clear and concise ... Pretty as a picture, and mouthwatering to boot ... fantastically useful ... Even if you're a die-hard carnivore, read what Jones has to say - her subtle, beautiful, delectable dishes might just bring you round.' Guardian 'It is a book of vegetarian recipes, but carnivores, do not be put off. Let's say it is a book of deliciously invigorating dishes that happen not to contain any flesh.' Rose Prince, Spectator, Books of the Year 'My favourite vegetarian cookbook this year' Bee Wilson, Stella magazine 'The new Nigella' William Sitwell, T2, The Times

Omg. I made a salad from this with little expectation for flavor. I was SO wrong. My company kept asking me for the recipe and all promptly went to purchase the book. These recipes are easy to follow, ingredients are easy to find, and this is the first salad I've ever had where I didn't want or need salad dressing. Food is good for you, is filling, and absolutely delicious. Would recommend to everyone.

The first vegetarian recipe book that has inspired me. I have tried quite a few of the recipes and they are all delicious and easy to follow. Each recipe includes vegan and gluten free options and they look as good as they taste!!

Looking through the book the pictures are very well crafted, great food layouts, great lighting, and it looks fun. There are sections in the book that are a light sea-foam green that give you a "main ingredient" and its kind of like a "Choose Your own Adventure book style" from there by adding how you cook, accent foods, etc. Any of the sea-foam green sections are helpful tips- for example one is about what fruits are in season and how she integrates them into her breakfasts.

The recipes are easy to follow and easy to make. Being gluten free I have to be super careful with everything and I thought this book would be a great addition to my cookbook set as most are naturally gluten free or have some mods listed. Of course there is not meats but it is well crafted to the point that you do not need a meat from the different "adventures" you can choose Quinoa or other add in's that are full of protein, fiber, etc.

I can tell you this, I hate Kale. But this offered very different uses for Kale that made this Super Food better for me. Kind of like Brussels Sprouts when you were a kid--I was WAY lucky enough to not have had those as a child and I love them roasted in the oven now as an adult.

Here are a few words from the book:

"I'd like to make a few promises about the food in this book:

It is indulgent and delicious.

It will make you feel good and look good.

It will leave you feeling light yet satisfied.

It will help you lighten your footprint on the planet.

It is quick and easy to make amd won't cost the earth.

And it'll impress your family and friends." (p. 6)

Who doesn't want that!!

I'll agree with most of the other reviewers here and say how wonderful this book is.

I've admittedly only made about five things so far but they have all been fantastic - lovely flavours and relatively simple. The bircher recipe is so delicious and easy (no apple grating!) and the miso walnut soup was so surprisingly good.

I find many of the books in this genre are more style than substance (eg Green Kitchen Travels, Kenko Kitchen - poorly tested recipes, end result lacking in flavour) - so not the case with this book. The author's tone is really lovely too - the recipes have nice intros/explanations and she is completely unpreachy re organics/expensive ingredients etc.

I also found the non-recipe sections of the book useful and appreciate the very large number of recipes in the book. I'm really looking forward to cooking my way through it, which will take forever!

Final side note - I actually don't like Jamie Oliver recipes, so was a bit worried I wouldn't like this after reading the foreword. But her style of food/flavour preferences is really completely different so don't be put off by that.

I have explored many vegetarian cookbooks. This is the most exciting one I have read in some time. There are some really unusual and delicious smoothie and hummus recipes. These two dishes are pretty common in vegetarian cookbooks, but A Modern Way to Eat has really stepped outside the box to come up with some truly unique ideas. I love the sections on soups and salads where Anna Jones opens to our own creativity. She shows columns and suggest you choose an ingredient from each. She explains what the role the ingredient might have and how to add it to create your own signature dish. I haven't seen anything like this since the Tassajara Cookbook back in the late 70s or early 80s. Lovely presentation. Great illustrations. This book really makes me want to get in the kitchen and cook. Thank you Blogging For Books for giving me a copy in exchange for my honest review. It will be a treasure on my shelves.

As vegetarian and vegan cuisine becomes more mainstream, chefs around the world are starting to take notice. Where vegetables were relegated to side dishes and salads before, they have been swept into the limelight. Just a few years ago, I didn't know a single vegan. Now, I know several vegans and quite a few more vegetarians. As more people make begin their transitions away from the consumption of animal products, the question is continually asked: "What about the food?" Very few persons have the sheer force of will to continue adhering to an ethical ideal that affects what they eat if the food isn't good. My personal journey towards veganism took quite a while because I simply didn't know what to eat. I could follow a recipe, but I didn't have any vegan cookbooks. Some people find the internet helpful, but I felt lost in the vortex of Pinterest. How was I to know which recipes were worth trying? Who was going to explain these new foods to me, like quinoa, farro, chia seeds, and silken tofu? How was I, a person who lived on boxed mac n' cheese and chicken fingers, going to know which recipes to start with?

I wish I had Anna Jones' cookbook, A Modern Way to Eat, when I started. It has over 200 unique recipes, and all the ones I've tried so far have been divine. I grew up hating lima beans, but the Lima Bean, Almond, and Rosemary Hummus has changed my mind entirely. The Lemony Lentil and Crispy Kale Soup is bursting with flavor, and the bright yellow color makes me smile. It's also packed with turmeric, which has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties.

Jones' book has given me the courage to step out of my cooking comfort zone of pasta, simple salad, and steamed/roasted veggies.
