If you get a few good recipes from a cookbook it is great - but this one - OMG! I have been cooking from it all week and still have more food to make. The recipes are creative, healthy, filling - and oh so good. The little meal ideas and notes at the side are very inspiring. My favorite dish so far is the Beet Bourguignon - or is it the Root Mash - maybe its the broccoli salad . . . see what I mean?! I haven't been disappointed with one single thing I have made from this book. My non vegetarian family also love the meals cooked from this book. I have ordered the second book - but it is back ordered so I have to wait a bit. The photos are inspiring and true to what your food will look like when finished. I highly recommend this book to everyone/anyone - you won't be disappointed! Check out the blog too! David and Luise are very inspiring and creative. http://www.greenkitchenstories.com//
In my experience, it's rare to find a vegetarian cook book that truly caters to foodies, vegetarian and omnivorous alike. The Green Kitchen truly manages to make the mouth water with simple, attainable recipes that leap from the page in gorgeous photographs (even in the iBook/Kindle version, which is a huge plus). I simply cannot wait to add their staples to my own pantry, then harvest inspiration from seasonal produce and the quaint shelves of healtheries and wholefood vendors as I stumble upon them. More exotic ingredients are easily substituted for those less blessed by urban imports, since the emphasis is on simple, classic, flavoursome combinations that feature fresh and available ingredients. If you're not currently a whole food person, or a veggo, then some recipes may seem daunting, but for those of us who know our quinoa from our cornmeal - this delightful book offers a valuable expansion to our daily vegetarian/vegan/gluten free rut. Highly, highly recommended.
So my girlfriend likes to cook healthy meals, and had this book on her wish list for a while. No joke, for a guy who likes his meats and salty things, and who generally drinks a bit too much, plays with cats, and despises most green things, the recipes in here are pretty good, if you can get past the semi-pretentious hippy wording and Instagram style pictures. If you can't get past that, then go to Burger King. Or get a girlfriend who will read it and make the food for you.
