A Modern Way to Cook: 150+ Vegetarian Recipes for Quick, Flavor-Packed Meals by Anna Jones is a lovely book chock–full of innovative and delicious sounding recipes. The non-glossy pages are filled with many beautiful pictures that will have you wanting to see more. Coming from a non-vegetarian this book has me curiously interested in making some vegetarian dishes from this book. I love the way Jones divided the book into chapters by time; 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes, 40 minutes, as well as super-fast breakfasts, and quick desserts and sweet treats.
Like, I said before this book has me intrigued about making some vegetarian meals. I’m a chart person, so when I saw the first chart of 10 Favorite omelet fillings on p. 34-35, I was totally sucked in. Jones shares a Main Vegetable, Backup Vegetable, Accent Flavor, Backup Flavor, and Richness in 10 different varieties. The one I want to try includes mushroom, spinach, basil leaves, lemon juice, and feta. Goodness bowls on p. 66-67 shows several variations of what to throw together in a bowl. Like quinoa, broccoli, sauteed green onions, lemon, mint, and toasted almonds. Sounds tasty to me. Something new and different. I recommend this book to anyone even if you’re not a vegetarian, who is tired of the same ole, same ole. It is full of so many innovative recipe ideas!
