Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today, I want to share with you my latest cookbook find...
This is the book Plenty, by Yotam Ottolenghi - a famous London chef, restaurant owner, and food columnist for the Guardian newspaper in London, UK.
I first heard about Yotam Ottolenghi from my dear friend, Rachel, who lives in England. I know how much she adores Ottolenghi and his recipes, so when I saw this book for sale in the reprinted American edition, I had to have it!
This cookbook contains 120 vegetarian recipes. Although I am not a vegetarian, I do enjoy vegetarian dishes, so there is much inspiration here, even for meat lovers!
Let me share some of what I've experimented with thus far...
Sweet Potato Wedges, pg. 26
Okay, seriously, these are to die for! I've tried sweet potatoes all sorts of ways - baked, fried, mashed, cubed, etc., but this recipe is my favourite. It is melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Ottolenghi provides a recipe for a dipping sauce to go with these...I didn't have all the ingredients, so I used plain old mayonnaise and served them with oven-roasted back ribs. YUM!
|It's Spring here, but it hardly looks that way. I am crossing my fingers that the sun comes out and melts all of this away. Sending warm thoughts to you. I hope the sun is shining wherever you are! Enjoy the rest of the week! xoxo|
