I had never heard of Allison Day but I was interested in more plant based meals and one dish meals and meals I could prep ahead of time and this appeared to fit the bill. I have purchased a lot of vegetarian cookbooks and they always leave me disappointed. I don't want a thirteen ingredient recipe to turn soy into bacon. I don't know what kind of sadist thinks I am going to put a winter squash casserole with toasted Pepitas in front of my kids and call it dinner. I want veggies, beautiful seasonal veggies. Whole grains. I want simple dressings. I want a belly filling meal I can get on the table on a weeknight that leaves no one asking where's the meat?
Allison you are my new hero!
Every. Single. Recipe. In the book is fresh, gorgeous, filling, and thoughtful. Foodie enough but not precious.
I never use breakfast recipes because I don't generally care for sweets in the morning. Not to worry she has included savory recipes that put your brain onto a new way of thinking about breakfast and the yogurt with cherry pesto recipe has me rethinking the way I feel about sweets in the morning.
I don't know if other moms have discovered this 'bowl' way of getting everyone excited about dinner but it's a true Revelation. Don't like chickpeas? More for me. Help yourself to my roasted peppers. Even the pickiest eater will find something to put in their bowl.
Thank you, for keeping the animals off our table and giving me the opportunity to show my kids what real vegetarian food looks like every day of the week!
