For the last few months I have been very happily making bowls at least once a week. I'm sure you've heard of these delicious creations but if not, Bon Appetit recently provided and excellent primer, How to Make the Grain Bowl of Your Lunchtime Dreams.

When Random House offered the new Sprouted Kitchen cookbook, Sprouted Kitchen Bowl and Spoon for early review, I accepted almost as quickly as I did Tana French's new book a few months ago.

I anticipated the majority of the recipes in the book being

I have loved every recipe in this book that I have made. Sara Forte is so good at incorporating vegetables into her recipes, or making them the center-- there is a Kale Salad in here that is the only salad in the world that my mother-in-law likes. I hope Ms. Forte writes many, many cookbooks in the future.

This is the sequel to the sprouted kitchen which I got this year for my birthday!The photography and layout of the book is a journey through beautiful pictures and easy to navigate dishes (bowls) that are simple to make and tasty fantastic. I highly recommend giving this a try for healthy, fresh, and very very tasty food. very good recipes.

Sections: Morning Bowls, Side Bowls, Big Bowls, Sweet Bowls, and Dressings and Sauces.

Pros: I love the concept of this book: compartmental recipes combined into one healthy dish — most of which can be served in a bowl; some of which can be eaten with a spoon. The photos are pretty. Every recipe I tried felt at least somewhat nutritious, and most had a comfort food vibe. Lots of dishes translated well for lunch leftovers.

Cons: None of the recipes I tried truly blew me away. And little details in

This is a gorgeous cookbook with beautiful photographs. I would love to sit down and eat many of the meals in this book. I just don't want to make them.

Many recipes seem to have long ingredient lists with fussy preparations. For instance, the Chickpea Deli Salad that I made (5 star recipe, by the way) recommended peeling canned chickpeas. There also seemed to be a lot of spiralized/julienned veggies as well as many ingredients that aren't a regular part of my pantry. All that meant flipping thr

Clearly this trip to the library involved a lot of vegetarian bowl cookbooks. I am a simple human.

This one is too fussy and too "healthful", though. Totally passable cookbook, but uninspired (I could just read your blog, hon), and it's SO CLEAR that this husband is a photographer because there are entirely too many 1. landscapes 2. macro vegetable shots in this book.

Sara Forte's second cookbook, Bowl and Spoon, is a visual feast chocked full of sumptuous bowls of vibrant fare tempting even the pickiest eaters to try a taste.

Forte is a blogger (her husband Hugh is a photographer who enjoys his wife's cooking and capturing said food for the beautiful illustrations in Bowl and Spoon) to whom I was introduced to via this book. She fully admits she is simply a home cook with an interest in good food that is simple and nutritious. She has no culinary school train

This cookbook was the inspired from Sara Forte’s website The Sprouted Kitchen. The photography in this book is exceptional as is the photography on her blog. Her husband Hugh Forte is a very good photographer in my humble opinion. When I ordered this book I expected soups, salads and deconstructed casserole type dishes such as beans, rice and a protein. That’s what one eats from a bowl, right?

I was surprised to see the number of meals that, in my opinion, would be better suited on a plate. Salm

The pictures look great, but the recipes didn't float my boat. Not saying that they wouldn't work for someone else.

This book is simple, creative & great for the home cook. It may not be "fancy", but the recipes are straightforward, helpful and adaptable. I love the authors notes and suggestions and how she really stresses flexibility and how to make a recipe work for your own family. It's a great book. ...more

this book is more my speed than her first cookbook. although, she makes recipes much more complicated than me. for example, her everyday green dressing has a recipe list a mile long. for another example, i will have to try one of her recipes exactly and see if adding the multi ingredient parsley oil really elevates a butternut squash grain salad enough to be worth it. i thought it was a bit morbid that she included a "last meal" recipe.

This is definitely not your average cookbook. Geared toward the discerning palate, I found it clear and beautiful. I loved that each recipe had the picture right next to it! I also liked the spacing and clear explanation of each step. This is a grown up cookbook and not for the novice cook but looks great and simple to follow as long as you know what the ingredients are. I received a copy of this book through the blogging for books program

Even though this cookbook is full of west coast oriented foods, with lots of tabouleh and quinoa that I don't ordinarily make, there is an approach to food that I appreciate, and I took away some recipes I mean to try very soon. The recipes make me realize how many healthy combinations of things there are to try together.

This is one of those rare cookbooks where I want to make just about every recipe in it. There are a few with meat but it's about 95% vegetarian and everything looks amazing.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Beautifully photographed and the use of a lot of whole foods make this an intriguing cookbook.

I understand why this is a popular book. It's beautiful to look at and the recipes are a good mix of familiar ingredients done in new and fanciful ways. It's just not for me.

Really great recipes, some modified versions of the ones that are on the blog. As always, Sarah creates many delicious meal size salads and other "bowl and spoon" dishes that are healthy and tasty.
