Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Quinoa bowl with red peppers, chickpeas, and roasted broccoli

    • MollyB on January 16, 2020

      I loved this recipe! It was a fair amount of work, but all came together beautifully for a filling and healthy bowl. I made the carrot pickles from the book, and it was worth it - they are very good and the crunch and spiciness of the carrots really added to the dish. I used cooked einkorn rather than quinoa, following her guidelines that you can substitute other whole grains for the quinoa.

  • Quick vegetable pickles

    • MollyB on January 16, 2020

      I made her carrot pickle variation, with carrots, serrano peppers, and ginger. I really liked the heat from the peppers. I served the carrots with the quinoa bowl from the book, and they were great in the dish. I would definitely make the recipe again, but I would take the extra step of cutting the carrots into coins rather than sticks.

  • Turkey and vegetable potpie

    • Rinshin on January 06, 2020

      Outstanding pot pie using leftover turkey. Having a flavorful homemade turkey stock helps too. I liked the addition of turnip and button mushrooms. Mushrooms taste permeated throughout the filling. Added parboiled Yukon potatoes and subbed in snap peas for peas. The snap peas retained the crispness even with baking nicely. This is the best pot pie ever including my own. Photo added
