Simple recipes with mouth watering photos.

Jun 10, 2014

I love love love Zsu's blog and have been following it for some time now. She presents easy to make dishes with easy to find ingredients and writes recipes clearly so you can easily make any of them with great success. I love this book, it is bright and full of color photos that make you want to get cooking. It is always a good sign! The recipes cover everything from basics that you can make yourself (or buy of course but it's nice to have the option since it is usually cheaper and then you can control the ingredients as well) like seitan, stocks, mayo, bacon tofu, blackened tempeh and ranch dressing (the best ranch dressing) to casseroles, side dishes, desserts and soups.

Most recipes are quick and easy with a few that might take a bit longer. It is full of great information about technique and ingredients and has loads of pictures! Here are some of my favourites by chapter:
