The first chapter of recipes is titled “Unbeatable Basics.” It starts you off with a basic recipe and then gives you 2 additional recipes that build off of that one. For example, you’ll start off with “Lazy Lentils” and then follow that with a recipe for lentil tacos and then a lentil and black bean chili.
The next chapter features “Main Dishes” – each main dish recipe has a recipe for a suggested side and then there is a variation of the main dish. So for vegetable stew, there is a recipe for braised endives, and the variation of the stew is a curried vegetable stew. I really like this format – it keeps you thinking about the different ways you can change things to avoid monotony.
“Stand-Alone Suppers” follow the mains. Jackfruit is featured in several recipes, unfortunately I can’t get my hands on one to see how this fares as an alternative to meat. Tofu and tempeh are readily available however, and there a few featured recipes that taste pretty good.
The last chapter features “Sunday Staples,” which appear to a hodge podge of recipes like guacamole, mushroom gravy, mango chutney, to name a few. The book ends with a list of the dirty dozen and clean fifteen and a helpful measurement conversion chart.
Overall, I’m glad I tried this cookbook and have since incorporated a bunch of recipes into the regular rotation of things I cook.
A fan of Toni's blog, I was excited when I heard the topic of her cookbook. And just as I'd hoped and expected, it's a straightforward presentation of practical but appetizing recipes. I've only had a chance to try two so far, but both came together quickly and did not disappoint. Even my kids were impressed, which was my goal. So, with a bunch of recipes dog-eared and ready to try, I know I'll be cooking my way through this book over and over, thankful for its getting us back on course!
