Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Thai red curry squash soup

    • Alifar on January 14, 2022

      Delicious soup. I have substituted other oven-roasted vegetables to good effect. I didn't manage to make the shallots crispy!

    • msmuggins666 on December 05, 2021

      Amazing soup! I was doubtful about the crispy shallot garnish but it really adds depth. Likewise, don’t forget the lime juice at the end, it makes a huge difference!

  • Sweet potato and arugula salad with chimichurri vinaigrette

  • Savory fresh corn pancakes

    • southerncooker on July 08, 2022

      Hubby could only eat a little, as he's dealing with some serious health issues. He said he loved them, and hoped I'd make again when he has a better appetite. I thought they were delicious too. I only made Half recipe. I used the scallion option, since hubby doesn't care for cilantro. I also used avocado oil, since I was out of grape seed oil. Green onions and egg from my Tumbling Shoals Farm Share.

  • Crisp-oven charred okra

    • southerncooker on August 29, 2022

      Made half a recipe for daughter and I from purple okra I got from my Tumbling Shoals Farm Share. We sure enjoyed it. It was a little spicy from the cayenne.

  • Mushroom and cheese quesadillas

    • southerncooker on July 14, 2022

      Delicious. I used blue oyster mushrooms, mozzarella cheese, and whole wheat tortilla. Mushrooms were from my farm share.

  • Turkish tomato and onion salad with olive oil and pomegranate molasses

    • southerncooker on June 01, 2022

      Very good. I didn't use the optional mint

  • Snow pea and summer squash salad with goat cheese

    • southerncooker on July 04, 2022

      I used green onions instead of red onion, and seasoned rice vinegar, goat cheese and dill. Green onion, Zephyr Squash, and snow peas from my Farm Share. Very good.

    • et12 on July 20, 2022

      A very tasty salad and incredibly easy to make. Appreciated that it cooked in the microwave while undergoing a heat wave! But this is more of a side dish yet it is in a chapter called supper salads and says it serves four. I followed ingredient amounts exactly and it only serves two as a small dinner. Delicious though,

  • Charred zucchini and fennel with shaved Parmesan

    • southerncooker on July 04, 2022

      Very good. Zucchini and Fennel from my farm share.

  • Roasted tomato risotto with basil and Parmesan

    • southerncooker on September 05, 2022

      Very tasty. I didn't have quiet enough dry vermouth so I added enough dry white wine to finish the amount called for.

  • Spanish-style "poor man's" potatoes with eggs

    • southerncooker on July 10, 2022

      This was delicious. I used a mix of red, yellow, and orange mini sweet peppers, and a baby greens mix, since I've been having problems finding argula lately.

  • Indian-style scrambled eggs with tomatoes and chilies

    • southerncooker on July 15, 2022

      I made one serving for me. This was delicious. I ate it with a warmed piece of Naan. Tomatoes, jalapeños, and cilantro were from my farm share.

  • Green beans with olive oil and toasted garlic

    • southerncooker on August 16, 2022

      This was good. I used potatoes, green beans, and garlic from my farm share. I used rice wine vinegar instead of sherry vinegar.

  • Spanish summer vegetable stew (Pisto Manchego)

    • southerncooker on July 10, 2022

      Made a half recipe for lunch for daughter and I. We ate it with EVOO drizzled sourdough toast. Delicious! I used Zephyr Squash from my farm share and red, yellow, and orange mini sweet peppers instead of bell peppers.

  • Collard greens stewed with tomato, shallots and ginger

    • pagesinthesun on March 18, 2022

      I enjoyed this preparation of collard greens. Vegetarian. Silky greens, unctuous sauce. It would be great with an addition of beans and served over rice. I ate this out of the bowl, exactly as written.

  • Baked zucchini fritters with feta-yogurt sauce

    • susankay on August 18, 2022

      Delicious! My guests couldn’t stop eating them. Easy, too.

  • Kale salad with smoked almonds and picada crumbs

    • Zosia on January 03, 2022

      Tasty winter salad. It held up quite well even on the second day (without breadcrumbs which were added just before serving)

  • Soy-braised baby bok choy with scallions

    • Zosia on January 03, 2022

      Nice alternative to stir fried. It took longer for the liquid to evaporate than the recipe stated and regardless of how well this was done, the vegetable dish was a little on the wet side (as a braised dish typically is lol)

    • Blondelectual on August 06, 2022

      Fantastic flavors

  • Cauliflower-scallion frittata with harissa and feta

    • Zosia on January 03, 2022

      Good but not particularly special. You really must cut the cauliflower that small for it to cook through.

    • et12 on June 28, 2022

      Like previous reviewer, we felt this was good but not particularly memorable. I liked the crunchy texture of the cauliflower and the strong dill flavour but felt it could use more harissa. I used a light feta which didn’t stand up to the cooking process and didn’t have enough salt to season.

  • Afghan-style braised butternut squash with garlic-mint yogurt

    • ShannonS on December 21, 2021

      I used delicata instead of butternut squash and only simmered 20 minutes.

  • Japanese-style glazed sweet potatoes with sesame

    • ShannonS on December 21, 2021

      Delicious with Japanese sweet potatoes. Added a couple extra tablespoons water and cooked about 25 minutes to get the right texture and glaze consistency.

  • Coconut curry with carrots and broccoli

    • Lepa on April 28, 2022

      This was very mediocre and not a repeat. The flavor was mild and muddy. Disappointing.

  • Habanero-onion soup with lime

    • Maefleur on March 03, 2022

      The habanero provides a nice warmth, and is not overwhelming in this light and flavorful soup.

  • Asparagus and barley soup with lemon and dill

    • Maefleur on March 03, 2022

      We took advantage of a sale on asparagus this week and I was so happy to see this recipe. The addition of the dill and lemon at the end brought it all together. A lovely light, bright soup.

    • Blondelectual on July 17, 2022

      Fantastic recipe, incredible flavors. It’s my maiden recipe from this book and I am super excited for what comes next. I used dry dill instead of fresh, and it was so good I added way more than I originally intended to. Also fresh cracked black pepper is a must in this, should be added at serving time.

  • Spinach salad with tomatoes and melon

    • Maefleur on August 15, 2022

      Nice salad. Enjoyed the mild heat of the chilies with the sweet melon.

  • Mashed vegetable curry with toasted buns (Pav bhaji)

    • et12 on July 06, 2022

      This was ok. The recipe was unclear as to weather you should drain the veg before mashing. There was a lot of water and I should have gone with my gut feeling and drain the liquid. The end result was ok but could have been more flavourful.

  • Sichuan dry-fried cauliflower

    • et12 on January 18, 2022

      Easy to make and delicious! We had it with rice which made for a complete meal. Ne t time I think I’ll add cashews at the end which I think would work well with this dish.

  • Greek-style rice with leeks

    • et12 on April 10, 2022

      Took me twice as long as the recipe mentioned to evaporate the water but still worth it. A very tasty risotto type dish, especially if you love leeks!

  • Pasta with tomatoes, peas and pancetta

    • et12 on February 17, 2022

      Tasty and easy to make.

  • Cauliflower with eggs, capers and lemon

    • et12 on June 23, 2022

      This was a gentle dish with some good comforting flavours. We had it as a main but I think it would make a good side dish for a bbq. I used regular breadcrumbs instead of panko but I think panko would add good crunch.

  • Cauliflower kati rolls

    • et12 on July 23, 2022

      These made for a tasty dish that was very to pull together. I would increase the garam masala next time. I used mango chutney instead of cilantro chutney and the sweetness really worked well in the dish.

  • Cauliflower and chickpea tagine

    • et12 on February 25, 2022

      Good, subtle flavours and easy enough to throw together but felt it lacked the intensity of flavour one would expect from Milk Street recipes.

    • Blondelectual on August 06, 2022

      It’s ok, but I don’t love the textures together and the flavor is only so so.

  • Broccoli and kimchi fried rice with "poached" eggs

    • Skamper on May 12, 2022

      We both enjoyed this. The seasoning was perfect; I didn't add anything else. The eggs took much longer to cook. Next time I will fry or poach them in the usual way.

  • Zucchini and chickpea salad with tahini yogurt

    • Skamper on June 21, 2022

      This made a refreshing and light dinner on a warm night when we'd had a later than usual lunch. This makes more dressing than is needed. I added another 1/4 tsp of za'atar and 1/2 tsp salt after mixing. the sumac is a nice touch.

  • Roasted Romanesco with smoked paprika yogurt

    • hbakke on March 01, 2022

      We had this as a side dish, but I think that it would make a nice main as well. The smoky flavored sauce was nice with the roasted romanesco. My romanesco wasn't quite done at 40 minutes, so I would would cook it a bit longer next time.

  • Lebanese-style spicy potatoes with lemon and cilantro

    • Blondelectual on August 01, 2022

      This is pretty good. It didn’t turn out as crispy as I was hoping for though. I think because potatoes got waterlogged. I think it would be better with whole fingerling potatoes (not cut, less water absorption). The flavors were good though.

  • Braised mushrooms with SIchuan chili oil

    • Blondelectual on August 06, 2022

      This is an incredible flavor combo. Who thinks of using chili oil, paprika and cilantro? I can tell you it’s not me. Both a fantastic and gorgeous dish (I used dry cilantro because I forgot to buy fresh (cut the amount in half to compensate), amazing flavor). My mushroom mix was trumpet, shiitake and wood ear.

  • Lebanese-style greens with caramelizd onions

    • Blondelectual on August 01, 2022

      Excellent flavor. I used collard greens (not a fan of the dandelion greens). The onions were the best part. Next time I’ll make double. I used cashew based yogurt. It was a nice touch.

  • Summer tomato tian

    • Blondelectual on July 17, 2022

      Incredibly good. I used a mix of heirloom tomatoes. To die for.

  • Pozole with collard greens

    • Blondelectual on July 23, 2022

      I made this in the Instant Pot (20 mins on high, quick release), and it turned out fantastic. I skipped the reduction step to cut out out oil and since IP was already going concentrate the flavor and skipped adding extra water for that reason. IP does something magical to hominy, it becomes really “meaty”, doesn’t fall apart at all, just makes the texture perfect.

  • Curried parsnips with basil and coconut

    • mpo on March 11, 2022

      This was a very flavorful dish. I added some green beans in the last few minutes. I’d make this again.

  • Curried eggplant and chickpea stew

    • dc151 on January 21, 2022

      A simplified version of the Indian dish chole baigan, this was super quick, very flavorful given a relatively short ingredient list. A bit too heavy with the lemon juice for me, but the others liked it just fine. Served with some curried chicken, brown rice and a loaf of bread, since that's what I had on hand instead of naan. I'm sure the traditional version of chole baigan is better, and I will definitely make at some point, but a quick mid-week meal is a nice thing to have on file.

  • Leek, kale and Emmentaler panade

    • dc151 on March 07, 2022

      I made this with baby spinach and gruyere instead of kale and emmentaler. Also used veg broth to keep it vegetarian. Great use of very stale old baguette and some leftover cheese. I've made similar stratas with a custard base, this was a nice twist on that, a lighter version.
