How we want to eat is
changing. We want to eat food that is a little lighter, healthier and
easier on our pockets, without having to chop mountains of veg or slave
over the stove for hours.
More and more people are looking to
include vegetarian recipes in their life beyond a mushroom risotto or
yet another red onion and goat’s cheese tart.
A Modern Way To Eat
has over 200 recipes that are as simple to make as they are nourishing,
satisfying and truly tasty. Based on how Anna likes to cook and eat
every day, it covers everything from quick breakfasts to celebratory
dinners, using different grains, nuts, seeds and seasonal vegetables
whilst avoiding the usual vegetarian reliance on dairy, heavy carbs and
I have recently acquired the new hobby of collecting and reading cookbooks, mainly because I love to cook. I love reading the little extra information for each recipe and looking at the pictures. Some cookbooks are lovely, but are filled with recipes that I most likely won't ever try. The great thing about A Modern Way to Eat is that it is a beautiful book, but more importantly, I want to cook every single recipe in here.
They don't look very complicated, and seem fairly quick to make. So far I have tried one recipe from the book: Avocado and Lemon Zest Spaghetti. My husband came home while I was cooking and said it smelled really good. And it also tasted delicious, which is a good thing. I'm not a vegetarian, but I would like to eat a lot less meat. It's expensive, especially if you don't want to buy it from the grocery store where you get mostly factory farmed meat. So this cookbook came just at the perfect time, and will get a lot of use in my home.
I got this book free from Blogging for Books in exchange for an honest review.
