Publishers Text

Alexandra Daum loves nothing more than harvesting her garden throughout the year, and creating simple, seasonally-driven recipes. In her first cookbook, Occasionally Eggs, she shows us how simple it can be to cook healthy(ish) vegetarian meals with local fruits and vegetables, and pantry staples, like grains and legumes. Hard-to-find ingredients are kept to a minimum, with a focus on flavour combinations that make the best possible use of market finds. Largely plant-based, with the exception of occasional uses of honey and eggs, this book will inspire you to include fresh, local produce in your daily meal preparation.

With over 110 delicious and nourishing vegetarian recipes, Occasionally Eggs will create excitement as the seasons change. You'll explore fresh, vibrant flavours in the spring and summer, with dishes like Chickpea Apricot Grain Salad, Spring Pesto Pizza, Sweet Corn and Zucchini Pakoras, and Strawberry Elderflower Ginger Beer Floats. In autumn and winter, it's a time to enjoy cozier, warmer meals, including Apple Hazelnut Waffles, Sesame Roasted Delicata Squash, Smoky Mushroom Pumpkin Chili, and Tahini Date Banana Bread.

Occasionally Eggs is equal parts instruction and inspiration, with substitutions, tips, and tricks to allow for intuitive cooking based on what you have on hand. In addition to her seasonal offerings, Alexandra includes chapters on useful staples and basic fermentation, so you can try your hand at a homemade kombucha or spelt sourdough, and fill your fridge with easy-to-make oat milk or tahini dressing. This is truly a year-round recipe collection and a book you'll turn to for years to come.
