A Modern Way to Cook by Anna Jones: Book Review

I'm so excited to tell you all about an awesome book I recently read. This is a new Vegetarian Cookbook , A Modern Way to Cook, by Anna Jones, is fantastic. It's set up in a unique way to save you time. For vegetarians with a busy schedule, this is a must have.

The book is sectioned off by time it takes to make the recipe. There's a circled time at the top of each page to make finding a recipe , by how much spare time you have , quick and easy. This is great. You can get quick healthy dinners on the table every night. The book is full of beautiful pictures, but one thing I wished was different is that each recipe doesn't have a picture, only some of them. I like to see how the recipe looks . The book covers equipment for quick cooking, most of which I have in my kitchen already. Each recipe has an ingredient list, detailed instructions,and description.The recipes range frombbreakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts. One of my favorite things about the book is that it's filled with charts for making quick meals, like:
-10favorite omelet fillings
-At your desk salads
-Goodness Bowls
-20 minute stir fries
-Morning Smoothies
-Overnight Oats
-Flavor Boosts

These charts give you a list of components that make up the recipe and then a list of possible choices. It's a quick way to customize the recipe to your liking.
They also have several pages spread throughout the book with quick variations on some of your favorites. These include:
-10 simple baked potatoes
-5 one pan dinners
-quick fruit desserts

There's also a section is the book on investment cooking. The is comprised of recipes for things that you can make ahead of time to save you time on recipes throughout the week. These are things like nut butters, gronola , and homemade tofu. This book really has covered all the bases. It's recipes are flavorful and unique. I've been a vegetarian for 20 years. I'm always looking for new recipes, but vegetarian recipes can be time consuming and made with crazy hard to find ingredients. This book is the solution to my problem, with recipes like : Smoky root vegetable tacos with green Chile salsa, sweet potato lime and peanut soup, A grilled mushroom feast, and Honey almond and basil cheesecake. The author, Anna Jones is a cook, food writer and stylist. She worked with chef Jamie Oliver for many years. She lives in East London. You can find out more about her and get this book for yourself Here.

I received this book for free for my honest unbiased review.
