All VEGGIE all the time and
January 8, 2020
all in Chef Jamie Oliver’s VegGlorious style🥰
“Ultimate Veg” is not just another vegetarian cookbook. According to Jamie, he spent over 8 years traveling the globe collecting and perfecting the recipes for this volume, his admitted labor of love. I found the collection of recipes to be organized well and to include a few categories that were not the same old thing: PIES, PARCELS, & BAKES; TRAYBAKES; BURGERS & FRIES; BRUNCH. There’s a bunch more of the usual suspects.
Each recipe includes a list of ingredients and a step by step tutorial from the chef, in what I’m calling “Jamie Speak” - he’s got some unique turns of phrases that I’m sure have British colloquial roots:”reduce by half before scrunching in the tomatoes”; “bring to a boil then leave to tick away for 5 minutes”; “broil until beautifully golden and gnarly”; “ripple a good few shakes”. Sure livens up the recipe! Also included for each recipe is a full color photograph of the finished dish and expanded nutritional values - thank you very much.
So, in the infamous words of Kermit, “It’s good to be green” and yellow, red, orange...📚
