Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Mushroom stock

    • apattin on September 16, 2018

      Bestest. Made half the recipe; I threw all ingredients (used 2.5 lb mushroom stems from the freezer) in a pressure cooker and cooked at pressure for 30 mins. No need to enhance flavor with expensive dried mushrooms. The pressure cooking yields far more flavor than regular stove method.

  • Soy-poached game hen

    • exploringfood on February 13, 2022

      We loved this (I used chicken), especially with the orange juice and rind (I added a little more juice). I didn't serve it with the greens. I also love that the poaching liquid can be refrigerated for awhile and reused after the initial dinner.

  • Lentil "cappuccino"

    • clkandel on September 29, 2019

      Made this using black lentils and didn't puree. Great earthy flavor. Lentils had a slightly firm texture.

  • Maui onion and ginger soup

    • bching on June 28, 2017

      This soup is served cold. I make it almost every summer--which is to say that I like it a lot. It's very divisive, though, so when I make it, it's all mine!

  • Butternut squash soup

    • bching on February 14, 2016

      Lovely, silky soup. Although it calls for 6 cups of broth, 4 was fine. I used vadouvan curry and garnished with some cubed apple and marash pepper.

  • Grilled portobello mushrooms on savory greens

    • Barb_N on October 16, 2014

      A perfect accompaniment that matched what I had on hand. I skipped the parmesan chips- too cheffy for a weeknight. I also didn't understand why the marinade and the dressing had to be different- basically used the same thing for both.

  • Fish tacos

    • Barb_N on May 05, 2015

      This is an easy weeknight meal if you skip some of the components- I made the cabbage slaw but skipped the citrus salsa and cilantro aioli, subbing purchased salsa. The flavor comes from the toppings, making the dish.

  • Fire and ice melon with figs

    • Lzeleny on September 17, 2017

      Very tasty and also effortless. This cookbook continues to have very solid recipies
