Shelves: cooking, irritating
This book is based on a blog, thegreenkitchenstories. This blog won the 2013 Best Special Diet Saveur award, so it is clearly popular. If you like it, you'll probably like this book. However, before borrowing this book I hadn't read their blog and this type of cooking is just Not. For. Me.

For starters, the list of pantry essentials is *seven pages long* and includes annoying categories like 'superfoods' and 'fermented essentials'. If you're going to have a category for nuts and seeds, put *all*

The collaboration of a former junk-food loving vegetarian and an omnivore health-foodist results, happily, in a vegetarian cookbook with a nutrition focus. As well as some lovely original combinations (I love their take on chorizo), there are some great ideas for making lighter versions of classics like 'beanotto' instead of risotto and wrapping falafel in cabbage leaves instead of bread (and baking instead of frying). The store cupboard section will be helpful for folks looking to get into a wi ...more

Literally every recipe in the book comes with a forenote of hippy parenting advice, which I found extremely irritating!
Also you must buy shitloads of ingredients to get started, the pictures look cute but i dont find the recipes very practical at all !

I love David & Luisa's blog, app & both books! I've been following them ever since I've decided to treat my body to some healthy food and implements some important changes in my life! Although I try to be 70% of the time vegan, I do love eggs & cheese from time to time. And THE GREEN KITCHEN STORIES & their app, books and blog is my place to go. Packed with healthy, nutritious and absolutely delicious, you can help but fall with vegetables all over again and again. Every recipe is accompanied by ...more

Ignoring the hippy overtones and parenting advice, few things in a cookbook annoy me more than pictures accompanying recipes that are not actually cooked.
This book has them in spades - the rhubarb, apple and yellow split pea stew a case in point. The pictured dish has obviously never experienced the heat of a flame - when cooked according to instructions the resultant meal looks brown and unappetising.

Totally what I needed, for more creative dishes! I liked the basic methods also (ghee, nut milk, nut butter, tomato sauce and more..)
I'd like to include more grains etc in my diet, but this book is a bit extreme. My 6 kids aren't going to go for Beet Bourguignon or Wild Nettle pesto, even if topped off with Spirulina Chocolate truffles. ...more

I love The Green Kitchen books, fabulous recipes than even meat eaters enjoy. I totally recommend all of them. The Banana and Cocoa granola is the best granola ever.

Un bellissimo volume, curato e pieno di ricette. Alcune molto laboriose, altre più veloci. Ho preferito la versione dei viaggi, con piatti di tutto il mondo, ma anche questo vale la pena.

Ik moet om te beginnen eerlijk toegeven dat ik geen vegetariër ben. Gezonde recepten en variatie zijn voor mij echter wel belangrijke factoren bij het kiezen van een kookboek. Eigenlijk tracht ik zoveel mogelijk te koken volgens het principe 'TE is nooit goed'. Afwisseling moet er zijn, zeker wanneer je elke dag van de week een maaltijd op tafel tracht te toveren. Daardoor kook ik dus ook af en toe een vegetarisch gerecht en daar vind je er in dit boek een hele hoop van.

The content of this cookbook and its lovely matte photographs was impressive, but I certainly found these vegetarian recipes to be outside of my comfort zone from preparation to ingredients ... if you want to change things up a bit to be a little more kitchen adventurous, this cookbook might be just right for you.

This book has a beautifully fresh and original approach to vegetarian cooking. I particularly like the recipes that reflect the authors' Scandinavian heritage. Can't wait to try the rye and spelt crispbread! ...more

One wonderful and beautiful cookbook about whole foods. I have a plant based diet and these two taught me so much. Little stories and amazing food photography and creative food creation make this book perfect and easy to understand.

Tosi kiva ruokakirja, ei edes huomaa, että se on vain kasviksista. Mukana myös aamupaloja ja piknikeväitä. Raikas ulkoasu ja houkuttelevat reseptit, pitänee hankkia itselleenkin.

I did not bookmark a single recipe (a first for me)...I'm all for "hippie food" but this was a bit out there even for me. Beautiful pictures though. ...more
