I love this cookbook.
It is exactly what it says: simple suppers. I need to remember simple suppers, as I tend to get carried away.
It’s easier to keep things simple when they are this yummy.
You should at least get this from your library. Of course, that comes with a warning: my library’s copy sat on my kitchen counter for the maximum number of weeks, and then I just bought my own. Who doesn’t need a staple cookbook that inspires you to try new flavors, keep things simple, and maintain a healthy diet?
Plus, it has all the basic recipes one could ever need (vinaigrettes, pesto, hummus, chutney…), AND it includes a complete list of their “pantry staples”. (Some dishes include lots of fresh stuff, but some are all pantry items. Can you say practical??) And every recipe ends with a menu suggestion — sides, salads, desserts, grains, etc.
Pasta dishes, soups, creative bean dishes, salads, desserts, and mouth-watering pictures. GO FOR IT!!
(Heads-up: This is written for a pescatarian diet and is a bit tofu-heavy. It doesn’t deter me; I just substitute chicken! And who knows, maybe one day I’ll actually like the stuff. Ick.)
