Vegetarian cookbook review
The title of Devra Gartenstein’s vegetarian cookbook is eye-catching, and the content doesn’t disappoint. This collection of 120 recipes offers unusual flavor pairings and unique presentation ideas – it’s fun just to read through it.
A few of the especially interesting recipes found in this book:
- Artichoke and goat cheese ravioli
- Butternut squash barley risotto
- Carrot pancakes with hummus
- Lemon, almond, and white chocolate brownie
- Porcini and fennel salad
- Rosemary popcorn
- Sweet pea custard
- Thyme pesto
- Tomato and fig soup
Many of the recipes require unusual ingredients, and they can be labor intensive. If you’re new to cooking or too busy to spend more than an hour in the kitchen, this is not the book for you. But if you love to cook and experiment in the kitchen, then you’ll love this book. From appetizers to dessert, The Modern Vegetarian has suggestions for all kinds of delicious and unique dishes. Bon appétit !
