This is the first Vegetarian only cookery book I’ve cooked from. I borrowed it from my future mother-in-law quite some time ago and haven’t gotten round to cooking from it.
I like the down to earth writing of the author of this book – it’s a very modern writing style.
In searching for this week’s recipes I only got to page 80 before I’d shortlisted 20 recipes – and then stopped. This book compliments all the Ottolenghi books – and many of the recipes are strikingly similar but with slight twists. The middle eastern style of cooking really suits me. I hope I can go there on a holiday once we’ve sorted our boat out !
I particularly like the ‘suggestions’ of how to modify the dishes and customise them to your own tastes.
Anyway all this week’s recipes are going to come from this book. I’ve plumped for lots of simple to make, smaller dishes as I don’t have a lot of spare time this week. I hope you enjoy them !
This week I’ll be making:
- Turkish Pizza Bread
- Spinach Fatayer
- Afghan Leek Pies
- Beetroot and Orange Salad
- Cucumber and Pomegranate Salsa
- Waldorf Salad
- Herby Omelette Thingies
- Onion and Herb Salad
- Fried Eggs With Dates
- Figs and Halloumi
- Cheese Baked Egg-Stuffed Tomatoes
- Tomato, Fennel and Arak Soup
I’ll also make Mung Bean Casserole – but I have to wait for those to arrive from souschef.co.uk, they take a few days to deliver based on past experience.
