However, there are a few things that keep Nutrition Stripped from being a 5-star cookbook for me. There are a few copy errors in some of the recipes I've noticed, like in the buckwheat pancakes when the reader is instructed to let to batter sit for a while to hydrate the oats, except there are no oats in the list of ingredients or mentioned anywhere else in the directions. A number of the recipes rely on sumac to provide a slightly sweet-sour flavor to the dish, and if that's not something you enjoy, you're unlikely to enjoy those meals. It can be difficult to find what you're looking for in the index - I knew there was a butternut mac & "cheese" recipe after flipping through the pages, but when I went back to find it in the index, there wasn't a butternut or pasta listing; instead the recipe is indexed under cheesy noodles.
So far, I've made a handful of the recipes from this cookbook and they've been okay, but none of them will be repeated. I was really excited to try the blackberry-sumac-sunflower seed muffins with citrus coconut cream, but they had a strange mousse-like consistency and texture from all the egg whites that wasn't at all what I or my guests were expecting, and the only flavor to come through was that of the sunflower seeds. No one could taste the lovely, expensive blackberries or the 2 tablespoons of orange zest in the batter. The winter citrus salad was better but entirely dominated by the sour flavor of the sumac. I like sumac, but I also like tasting the individual components in my salad. I'm still looking forward to trying dishes like the turmeric ebelskivers, the Moroccan millet salad, and the beet pizza, but my enthusiasm has been a bit tempered by what I've tried thus far.
I found it to be a great -easy to follow book – packed full of advice, beautiful photography and most importantly good recipes.
The book begins with an introduction about the author, her food philosophy, kitchen essentials, and a very comprehensive grocery list that you could copy and take with you as it has boxes to check off as you buy. There is a very useful guide to plant based protein – as someone who loves to workout but struggles to get enough protein in my diet, this was an essential guide for me. Then basics –making nut butter, milks, dressing’s guides to seeds, beans, flours, making vegan cheese -all very useful and notably simple to follow.
The recipes follow – drinks; juices, nut milks, tonics, potions and elixirs and I was excited to see so many new and innovative ideas, not the done to death green smoothie. Then a breakfast including smoothies – and this goes from simple such as cereal and pancakes to the complex donuts.
Small bites has everything from kale chips to super easy and portable energy seed truffles; salads follow and I already love the winter citrus grain salad as it’s easy to make and a great high protein lunch I can take with me to work – the melon . Fennel salad is also a standout. Soups are featured next – with everything from pho to a spicy carrot / cayenne concoction. Again not your run of the mill ideas which is great!
Suppers are of course the most complex but what I did like was easy to source ingredients - this book does not feature many weird things you would have to hunt down! As someone who had made ricotta I was excited to try the vegan version and it’s really rather good, the raw nut burritos are simple, easy to make and delicious and I tried out the cheesy noodles on my Mac n cheese loving kids and they ate every bite!! Some things do require some technique like the home made gnocchi and pizza crusts, but others are simple and quick to prepare.
The book then features a wide and eclectic range of sides, and of course finishes with desserts – cakes, ice cream, and tarts - something for everyone and every level of home cook.
The end covers practices and plans to make healthy eating a life ling habit and is packed with tips, ideas for batch booking, meal planning and finally - something not often seen – but a guide to nutrients including what they do and how to source them from food!
This is a great book and invaluable guide to anyone looking to begin a healthy plant based lifestyle. or someone looking to expand their recipe collection with ideas that are truly new, delicious and inspiring ! Love this book! The only reason I gave it 4 stars, is the cover is a little flimsy and I worry will not hold up to the extensive use I plan for this book.
