Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Cranberry slaw

    • Nancith on May 27, 2016

      Simple to make, quite delicious to eat. Used regular mayo instead of soy, & gave a couple shakes of champagne vinegar to the slaw. This would make a good dish for a potluck.

  • Dilled barley and green bean salad

    • Nancith on November 16, 2017

      Simple to put together, delicious, filling--what more could you ask for? Really nice combination of flavors going on. Next time will make a better vinaigrette-I was in a hurry & just used olive oil & rice vinegar, which worked, but could have used more flavor. We ate this slightly chilled, but I imagine it would be nice slightly warm as well. Went very well with soup for supper.

  • Warm potato salad with goat cheese

    • Nancith on May 20, 2018

      Not a bad little salad for 4 ingredients. Goat cheese gives a nice tang. I used a simple white wine vinaigrette plus some leftover olive oil from a jar of sun-dried tomatoes to dress the salad. Book recommends a balsamic vinaigrette, so will have to try that next time.

  • Pasta with asparagus

    • Nancith on February 24, 2017

      Simple, quick, but very tasty. Be sure to use a good amount of garlic, & season it well with salt & pepper, otherwise it can be a bit insipid. I added a little zucchini that needed to be used, & subbed feta & Parmesan cheese for the goat cheese (since there wasn't enough of either)

  • Pasta with broccoli and dried tomatoes

    • Nancith on August 10, 2015

      So easy to prepare, and doesn't take much time, but very tasty. I used gnocchi for the pasta which worked well with the recipe.

  • Couscous with peas, cashews, and raisins

    • Nancith on July 26, 2016

      This dish certainly is mild, as noted by the author. A little too mild for me--could use some herbs or something, or even making the couscous w/ broth instead of water would add a flavor punch. It's a decent accompaniment to a spicier course, but I will definitely augment the flavor next time.

  • Instant tofu and mixed vegetable stir-fry

    • Nancith on June 13, 2017

      Quick, easy, nothing to write home about, but great when there is a need for a simple meal. I added canned baby corn plus a few fresh veggies, & fried the tofu. Using a good quality stir-fry sauce will make quite a difference in the finished product. Served over basmati rice.

  • Spanish potato frittata

    • Nancith on May 23, 2016

      Simple, but tasty. Easy to prepare. Good for a vegetarian & goes well w/ meat as side dish for omnivores. Added smoked paprika to give it a more authentic Spanish flavor, & didn't bother peeling the new red potatoes.

  • Roasted Italian vegetables

    • Nancith on December 12, 2014

      Simple, but tasty roasted veggies. Makes a nice side dish & leftovers make a good burrito filling.
