This book blew us away.,
This review is from: The Extra Virgin Kitchen (Hardcover)
Here’s a summary of what you’ll get:
(1) It’s massive – incredible value for 25 quid. Timeless.
(2) Humour – she’s really very funny, and makes us laugh every time we use the book. It’s the sort of book I’ve even brought to bed.
(3) Inspiration (a good one to keep in your office drawer, planning weekday meals)
(4) An introduction to superfoods
(although the downside to this is their expense. Usually they are 'optional' within the recipe, so it's not necessary to shell out on pricey superfoods. Thought it worth mentioning nevertheless)
(5) Breakfasts – the breakfast section alone is worth the price tag. I try to avoid gluten, so this is great for me (136 recipes are gluten free). Below I’ll list the options for you so you can get an idea of how delicious sounding and creative she is
- Badass Breakfast Bars
- Double Decker Amaranth & Banana Pudding
- The Only Granola Recipe You'll Ever Need
- Office Bombs
- Buckwheat Pancakes
- Chia Jam
- 6AM Toddler Cookies
- Chestnut Crepes
- Multiseed Bread with Caraway Spice
- Smoked Salmon Blini with Healthier 'Hollandaise'
- Sticky Cinnamon & Prune Cakes (I used brown rice flour to make them gluten free)
- Maple & Cardamom Peaches
- Brown Rice and his cousins (complete guide on cooking all the different brown rice available)
... and lots of quinoa recipes. No pasta. And 40 awesome desserts. I haven't even touched the chapter on salads, or soups, or curries but this should give you some idea.
