The vegetarian option – cookbook review (VeganMoFo 2011)

 The vegetarian option

  by Simon Hopkinson

VVVVV*

Kind of book?


Vegetarian (vegetable) cookbook

Beginner, intermediatechallenging?



Particular:



Special format. Each chapter describes two ingredients that have a natural affinity with each other (broccoli,cauliflower, tomato and olive oil). Especially the vegetables play a role in this book.



Vegan friendly?


Many vegan recipes and / or recipes that are easy to adjust.


The looks:


Hardback, modest but beautiful and sober photography.

Good points:


Personal stories of the cook in which he shares his experience with the ingredients.
The linking of two ingredients
Includes a few recipes for condiments  to make yourself p.e. masalapaste.
Many recipes for local seasonal vegetables.
Good index.

Bad points:


A recipe for chickenbroth???
Few innovative vegan recipes.


Recipes I really want to try in the future:


Pimento-potato casserole with jalapeñodressing
Buttery pilaf with onions, coconut milk and green paste
