Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Spicy steak salad wraps

    • twoyolks on October 15, 2018

      The marinade was strong and rather spicy. Cooking the steak caused the remaining marinade to burn a bit. I don't care for radishes so omitted them but wished there was more in the lettuce wraps.

  • Peanut rice noodles with pork and collard greens

    • Barb_N on August 22, 2018

      This appealed to me on so many levels- flavor profile, ease, economy. I have been eyeing peanut noodle recipes for months and liked the added greens and ground meat. I didn't dilute the sauce and cook it down, just tossed the hot noodles in and after giving them time to absorb a bit, added the greens/meat. I used wheat bucatini for a more sturdy noodle, sambal oelek in place of red pepper flakes, and garnished with scallions, cucumber, cilantro and chopped peanuts.

    • Frogcake on August 18, 2018

      This is a recipe that I will put into rotation. Very good and very simple to make! I embellished the peanut flavour by adding roasted unsalted peanuts, crumbled on top with chopped cilantro. Also, the rice noodles can be replaced with high fibre, multigrain noodles (tastes fantastic!)

      So simple and highly addictive. We don't find collard greens over here so I used swiss chard from our garden.

  • Coconut rice noodles with ginger and turmeric

    • Barb_N on November 15, 2018

      About half the reviews on Bon Appetit said this recipe lacked flavor; something I was willing to overlook given the ingredient list. I couldn’t disagree more. Our family loved this, my daughter asked for it to go into regular rotation. I did add a 1/4 t of red peppr flakes, some veggies (julienned carrots and baby spinach) and topped with crispy shallots instead of sauteed red onion. Just salt, no fish sauce as I don’t like the smell. The toasted coconut is a must.

  • Tomato toast with chives and sesame seeds

    • MarciK on August 24, 2019

      Made this without the lemon. It doesn’t really need it. Very good, simple lunch to use up tomatoes from my garden.
