Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Za'atar

    • Jane on October 29, 2014

      I made this to use in an Ottolenghi recipe. I liked the proportions of the spices - sumac was the bulk of it but that is a subtle spice so it didn't overpower the cumin and thyme. I don't know why I haven't made my own za'atar before - it was so easy and tastes much better than some musty bought mix that may have been made months ago.

  • Szechuan-style tofu and shiitake stir-fry

    • eselque on September 14, 2013

      After toasting the Szechuan peppercorns, there's no instruction for when to add them to the stir-fry. I put them in with the soy and sugar.

  • Hearty greens

    • swegener on January 30, 2015

      This was a nice simple way to prepare greens--I used collards for New Years Day.

  • Cherry-almond smoothie

    • ingabritt on September 03, 2017

      A-. I used slivered almonds and water instead of ice cubes. This is very good, but equally good is: 1/2 cup pitted sweet cherries, 1/4 cup tart or sweet cherry juice, 1/2 cup plain yogurt (Greek or regular, doesn't matter), and one banana.

Reviews about this book

  • Advocate by Diane Anderson-Minshall

    ...a great selection of vegetarian, flexitarian, and vegan recipes that are specifically sized for single portions (and can be adaptable for couples). Perfect antidote to those Army-sized recipes...

  • Boston Globe by T. Susan Chang

    Although his ingredients are global, he rarely crafts a dish in a single ethnic idiom, preferring to mix and match until he arrives at his own world-on-a-plate version.

  • The Kitchn

    The book is vegetarian, but it's not exclusively for vegetarians as many people today are like Joe — not necessarily strict vegetarians, but who are eating and preparing less meat in general.

  • New York Daily News

    Yonan avoids preaching, but does sprinkle occasional essays and insights...among the dozens of easy-to-follow recipes...One nice bonus is that all of the dishes are designed for the single cook.
