Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Curried lentil, tomato, and coconut soup

    • Cheri on October 25, 2021

      This is so warming and satisfying. Highly recommended. Don’t skip the citrus at the end (I substituted lemons, didn’t have limes - either is delicious)

    • hillsboroks on November 12, 2019

      This is the perfect cold or rainy day soup when you are bored with the usual soups. I used grocery standard curry powder which was flavorful but mild. The coconut flavor is there but subtle, more of a background note. The soup was thick and spicy warm but just right and very comforting on a wet day. I did cut the amount of red pepper flakes in half to suit our tastes but if you want it really spicy you could just double them.

    • Rradishes on December 04, 2017

      So satisfying and flavorful, AND vegetarian!

  • Cauliflower soup with hazelnuts and bacon

    • hillsboroks on December 08, 2017

      The roasting of the cauliflower gives this soup an interesting depth of flavor and the toasted hazelnuts and bacon bits add even more flavor plus satisfying crunch. We really liked this for a winter dinner with a salad alongside.

  • Slow-roasted salmon in parchment paper

    • hillsboroks on December 08, 2017

      Slow baking the salmon in parchment resulted in meltingly moist tender salmon. The sauce was fairly simple to put together but has huge flavor. I subbed in green olives and only used half as many as called as I knew their flavor would be stronger than the milder olives called for. All in all this is a very flavorful simple way to cook salmon and we will be making this one again.

  • Mamaleh's brisket

    • Frogcake on December 14, 2017

      Delicious! Note to self: don’t omit the schmaltz!

  • Seared scallops with brown butter and lemon pan sauce

    • GiselleMarie on October 11, 2019

      This is very good and very easy! I’m glad I read reviews on the Bon Appetit website before making this. Many cooks complained that the lemon juice and lemon flesh made this dish way too tart, so I used just 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and my husband and I thought it was perfect. It was lemony enough, and the briney flavor of the scallops and the succulence of the browned butter worked together marvelously.

    • Shelmar on May 02, 2020

      I used one lemon for a scant 1/4 cup. Easy, I would make again.

  • Polenta cacio e pepe

    • Skamper on May 09, 2020

      I love this recipe! In the video on the Bon Appetit site, Carla doesn't bring it to a simmer before pressure cooking, so I don't either. Simply combine the cornmeal, water, salt and pepper and set for 9 minutes. Perfect every time. I make a half batch which is more than enough for the two of us. If I'm making this a base for sauce or something to go on top, I use less or no cheese.
