Gwynnie has been gracing my kitchen for the last month. Hesitant at first, I initially tried quinoa and almond milk with some fruit for breakfast. Finding it actually quite delicious and filling, I set about cooking more of the recipes and for the last 4 weeks, we have only eaten recipes from this book.
This is what I have cooked so far:
Chicken and Kale soup - didn't think I'd like it as it looked too "brothy" but it was so good I;ve made it another 3 times.
Sweet Potato and Chipotle soup
Teriyaki chicken - had it every week!
Hoisin sauce - far better than shop bought and surprisingly easy
Chinese Dumpings - totally smug! So easy, quick and very impressive to give to guests!
Turkey and Sweet Potato chilli - fantastic for batch cooking
Chicken and white bean chilli
Banana and almond muffins
New York Street Vendor Salad
Spanish BBQ Chicken
Braised Chicken with Olives
Korean Chicken wraps
Korean BBQ Sauce
Cauliflower and Chickpea salad thing
As you can see, there is a wide variety and the thing that has been the biggest surprise for me is that it is really family friendly and fantastic for batch cooking. Once our shopping has been delivered, I usually cook/prepare everything for the week. For example, last week I made both the turkey and chicken chillis and that was our dinners for the whole week. Everything I have made has been good to keep in the fridge for up to a week. Some of the recipes require meat to marinate for a few hours or overnight. I have left some things marinate in the fridge for a couple of days and found them to be just as delicious.
There are 3 recipes I have a bit of an issue with:
Millet felafel - it just didn't stick together when I cooked it and most ended up getting thrown away - perhaps the use of an egg may have helped.
The chinese dumplings - nowhere near enough filling for 30 dumplings and think I could have made closer to 50 wrappers with my dough
The gluten free muffins - tasted a bit powdery the day after but delicious whilst still warm from the oven.
Some reviewers have raised the issue of ingredients. I can honestly say I have found everything with relative ease from a well known online supermarket. I have been spending approx £60 per week to feed a family of 3 on the above recipes. I don't go for organic everything, I get the meat usually in the 3 for £10 deal and I don't think the end product suffers greatly. The Korean chicken wraps require a special paste and pepper flakes but having been so impressed with all the other recipes, we splashed out and ordered them from a korean online supermarket and trusty Amazon - both came to under £10 and will do several recipes. I could eat the Korean Slaw all day long. The initial outlay may add up if you don't usually cook with things like Miso, or rice wine vinegars etc but I have just bought things week by week and so absorbed the cost gradually. Many of the "unusual" ingredients are used in more than one recipe so you do get value for money.
The other thing I note other reviewers have raised is the Cup measurement. I have actually found this to be a freeing way to cook - no more spooning things into and out of scales to get the right weight, less mess and just far more straightforward. I hate "faffy" cooking - some recipes do require a bit of prep ie grating and/or blending etc but all in all it is pretty much stress free cooking.
This book has really opened my eyes to ingredients I would not normally have cooked with; I had never heard of Millet but now I serve it instead of rice with the chillis and my 3 year old also likes it.I'd never cooked with Miso either or really known what to do with quinoa. I haven't lost weight but that wasn't my objective when I got the book. I do feel a lot better in myself and not so tired all the time, whether it is because I'm eating "clean" or not I don't know.
This book hasn't even made it to my book shelf it has been in use every day. Highly recommended to anyone who likes cooking, busy families and bulk cookers. Her other one is on my Christmas Wish List!
