I recently went to visit de Boekenbeurs in Belgium, which is a big annual book fair in Antwerp. Every year, since 1932, this book fair features displays from all kinds of publishers and authors (you can get your books signed too by many of them). In recent years the amount of cook books on display have grown significantly so I was super excited to go and discover some new books – even though I quite literally have 0 space in my suitcase. I wrote down a few titles to buy when I get back to Ireland and of those titles is my book tip for November: Green Kitchen at Home by David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl.
It is actually quite funny as my previous blog name was Tine at Home, so I was drawn to the name right away. The book is very colourful and has so many yummy looking and original vegetarian recipes! As you know I try to live a balanced life without limiting myself to a specific diet so I’ll eat meat, poulty & fish but also vegetarian and vegan meals. It can be quite challenging to come up with original and flavourful vegetarian creations though so I’m always on the look for cookbooks that can help inspire me. Green Kitchen at Home is just that. But what’s more is that in addition to providing you with great vegetarian recipes, it also features recipes for batch cooking – which can make some people’s lives much easier.
In Green Kitchen At Home, bestselling authors and bloggers David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl are back, this time with simple yet delicious recipes that can be cooked during a busy week, and will allow you to sneak more vegetables into your diet. This book features wholesome food that everyone, including meat-eaters, will love.
Recipes are smartly composed so they are easy to make. David and Luise will show how to sneak vegetables into all kind of dishes, from breakfast pancakes to bread and desserts. And for the first time, they feature shortcuts – how a recipe can be made even easier by using store-bought pesto or tinned beans if you’re time-poor, or how various vegetables or other ingredients can be substituted.
There are also weekend dinner recipes that take a little more timeand more ingredients, such as a Yummy Veggie Burger, Wine, Tofu & Vegetable Bake and a Popeye Polpette. As well as this, a clever section on batch recipes that can double as a building block for more meals throughout the week will make your life so much easier. Things like Big Batch Tomato Sauce, Roasted Root Trays, Quinoa Quickly and Perfect Pesto.
With their usual stunning photography and food styling, as well as personal anecdotes, Green Kitchen At Home sets a new standard in modern and inspiring vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free recipes.
