Love shows up in all different ways, so if you’re like me you love cooking and playing with recipes and sometimes following them exactly! Some recipes turn out divine and others ,well, not so much. Ha! That’s OK I’ve accepted that I may not be the worlds best chef. No biggie! However, the recipes in this cookbook The Vegetarian Kitchen, by Melissa Bushby, have been really delicious and have taught me a few things, like making crusts, infusing a few flavors I didn’t think would taste good together and yet they did, and there is just a great variety for the palette.
I’ve been vegan, vegetarian, not vegan, not vegetarian, back to vegetarian off and on over the last 4 years and now I just eat as my body requests. There is about 95% no animal meats in my diet, but cheeeeeese is good in small quantities! This saves me a lot of hassle of being forced by some silly rule I made up myself as to how I am going to eat and what I’d be committed to. So, if you eat meat, add meat. If you don’t, don’t. If you eat cheese, add cheese. If you don’t eat cheese, use something like Daiya Cheese, which is very tasty too in these recipes!
Anyways, some of my favorite recipes include Tomato & Onions (it has a great caper topping), Mung Bean Soup, Roasted Onions, Sweet Potato & Courgette (Zucchini) Fritters, Tarts, Pastas, Homemade Hot Chocolate, Homemade Lemonade, and there are even recipes for Limoncello, Ginger Beer and Sangria. Don’t forget, cook once, eat twice or thrice! This book, yes the one below, has been a true find!
