A Modern Way to Eat by Anna Jones is the latest book that I chose from Blogging for Books. It’s packed with over 200 vegetarian recipes. Just in case you are wondering, no I am not converting to a vegetarian. I chose this book because even though I eat meat it’s great to have a different variety of vegetables to go along with my meals. Roasted broccoli, asparagus and okra can get old after a while. A Modern Way to Eat is a very impressive cookbook. It’s over 350 pages and you can tell that the author took some time with putting this cookbook together.
Included are options for breakfast, salads, soups, easy lunches, hearty dinners, drinks, sweet treats and more. No worries, the cookbook actually has delicious sweet desserts and not broccoli on a stick. Of course, I wanted to go for a dessert but since I made cupcakes for my last review, I decided to go with a breakfast option. I made the Lemon Maple Granola and it was one of the easier recipes. Their are several recipes throughout the book and included in different sections are guides of how she puts together a recipe. The recipe guide is great because if you want to choose a different vegetable, herb, spice, etc, she list several options to choose from.
In addition to the recipes their are other guides included in the book, such as information on the different types of grains and how to cook the grains, the different types of flours, a guide to when the different vegetables, fruits and herbs are in season and lots more other guides. On the downside, a lot of the recipes call for more ingredients then I would like. Overall, this is one of the most detailed cookbooks that I have owned. Their isn’t a picture to go with each recipe but it is a great balance. The next recipe that I will share from this cookbook is the Kale and Black Sesame Sushi Bowl so make sure you check back for that.
