The Sprouted Kitchen Bowl and Spoon by Sara Forte is a book that celebrates “the bowl.” Yes, in this 225 page cookbook Sara shares recipes that all can be eaten in a bowl from Morning Bowls to Sweet Bowls there is a wide range of delicious recipes! There are lots of gorgeous pictures throughout the book that are really pleasing to the eye. The food pictures will have your mouth watering and your stomach growling!
In the Breakfast Bowl chapter, on p. 17 the Popeye Protein Bowl looks unlike your typical breakfast meal, but I’m curious to try it. On p. 98, Sara gives a template for how to make a bowl (grain, well-seasoned protein, greens, veggies, toppings, and sauce). I loved that she said you don’t have to have a recipe to have a good bowl! The Smoky Tortilla Soup on p. 149 looks delicious and would make a great lunch or dinner. In the Dessert Chapter, the Peach Derby Ice Cream on p. 182 looks scrumptious, for sure! While this cookbook has nice pics and a few of the recipes look delicious, I’m afraid that most of these recipes that just aren’t my cup of tea. Many of the recipes call for food items that I might have a hard time finding (i.e. persimmon, Asian pears, Cotija cheese.)
I am thankful for Blogging for Books who sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
