A Modern Way to Cook: A Review

This cookbook came just in the nick of time for the type of cooking I'm craving right now: easy, simple, quick, healthy, and vegetarian. A Modern Way to Cook by the talented UK food writer, Anna Jones, is brilliant. Simply brilliant.

Imagine choosing how many minutes you have to get something on your table. 10? 15? 20? 25? 30? 35? 40? 45? Yep, it's broken down that specifically.

Then choose the vegetable you want to cook. Leeks? Celery root? Squash? Kale? Carrots?  Sweet potatoes? Parsnips? Corn? Green beans? Tomatoes? You get the idea.

Then choose the dish you want to share with family and friends. Crispy chickpea and harissa burgers. Bloody Mary salad with black rice. Pan-roasted lime, feta, and chile greens burrito. Charred broccolini with cucumber noodles and peanut sauce. Plantain, avocado, and black bean bowl. Avocado, tahini, and olive smash flatbreads. Yummmmm!

So you see, this book is full of mouthwatering dishes that are healthy, vibrant, and quick to make. What more can you ask for in a cookbook?

Now excuse me for a few minutes while I go make one of Anna's delicious recipes.
