The recipes are clean, full of flavour, use a variety of ingredients, and more importantly for me at the moment, don't rely on mountains of meat... If we're going to encourage people to eat a broader variety of food, we have to make it flipping delicious!
The book is broken down into:
Tossed (tomato and pomegranate salad; raw beetroot and herb salad; crunchy root vegetables...)
Steamed (miso vegetables and rice, with black sesame dressing; lemon and curry leaf rice ...)
Blanched (seaweed, ginger and carrot salad; soba noodles with quick-pickled mushrooms...)
Simmered (tagliatelle with walnuts and lemon; fregola and artichoke pilaff...)
Braised (fennel with capers and olives; mushrooms, garlic and shallots with lemon ricotta...)
Grilled (butternut tataki and udon noodle salad; courgette baba ganoush, marrow with tomato and feta...)
Roasted (squash with cardamon and nigella seeds; honey roasted carrots with tahini yoghurt...)
Fried (polenta crisps with avocado and yoghurt; seared girollesl with black glutinous rice...)
Mashed (crushed puy lentils with tahini and cumin; cannelloni bean puree with pickled mushrooms and pita croutons...)
Cracked (membrillo and stilton quiche; corn and spring onion pancakes; spicy scrambled eggs...)
Baked (stuffed peppers with fondant swede and goat's cheese; winter saffron gratin; baked artichoke and pearled spelt salad...)
Sweetened (baked rhubarb with sweet labneh; quince poached in pomegranate juice; fig and goat's cheese tart...)
Utterly brilliant, I can think of no nicer way to eat my five a day...
Plenty More is 100% vegetarian, but even the most die-hard meat eaters will struggle to find something they dislike in this book. If you're starting out in vegetarianism/reducing meat intake or if you'reunsure how to use vegetables as centre-stage, or even if you just wanting to try some new ideas, then I would recommend this book above Plenty as the recipes seem a little more toned down, i.e. they seem to make use of easier to locate ingredients - if you have ever read the comments left on Ottolenghi's weekly Guardian food column then you'll know that his ingredients list is often a sticking point for some readers (personally I can't see why, I buy 95% of the ingredients from ASDA, and the rest from Waitrose). I suspect he has tried to reduce such criticism with this book, without sacrificing taste - no easy feat.
On the other hand, if you are already proficient with cooking vegetables and love to experiment, then I would recommend Plenty over this book, the recipes are that little bit more interesting and daring. That isn't to say Plenty More isn't up there with the best - it really is. I will be cooking from it for months and years to come, and that is a great feeling to get from a cookbook.
Negatives? The main disappointment for me is that there is no pasta section, and only 1-2 pasta-based recipes, plus a small handful of the recipes do appear at least superficially similar to Plenty but this is by no means enough to deduct even 1 star. 5/5!
