4.0 out of 5 stars It's all about flavour!, 28 April 2010

This review is from: The Modern Vegetarian: Food Adventures for the Contemporary Palate: Over 120 Recipes to Wake Up Your Palate (Hardcover)
Maria Elias pays homage to the flavour of the humble vegetable in this good-looking book. One of my favourite things about the book is the way she builds the depth of vegetable flavours into her recipes, using the veg themselves. She pays great attention to the use of stock in many of the recipes, with a couple of stock recipes at the end, and sometimes making it on the run with the peelings of the main veg in a recipe. My favourite example of this is in the parsnip risotto, a dish perfect for cold weather comfort food.

As others have commented, many of the recipes are complicated and for special occasions only, but the chapter on side dishes has simpler ideas. Coconut basmati rice and braised broad beans with lemon and dill for example.

My favourite recipe so far is for carrot pancakes. As someone pointed out, the full recipe is for carrot pancakes with houmous and a feta salad, another complicated recipe which she describes as `perfect for a light lunch, snack or starter. It also makes great party canapes'. Well, it's too time consuming for all that, but the pancakes on their own are actually simple and really tasty - and highly recommended!
