FOREWORD BY JAMIE OLIVER A modern vegetarian cookbook packed with quick, healthy and fresh recipes, that fits perfectly with how we wish to eat now. How we wish to eat is changing. An increasing number of people wish to cook without meat a few nights a week, or are searching for interesting ideas for dishes for their vegetarian friends (while pushing their own vegetarian repertoire beyond a red onion and goat’s cheese tart or a mushroom risotto). At the same time we wish to eat food that may be a little lighter, a little healthier, a little easier on our pockets, but that shouldn’t have us chopping mountains of veg or slaving over the stove for hours. Anna Jones is a brilliant young cook and food author, who worked with Jamie Oliver for many years. Her first cookbook is a totally modern take on vegetarian eating – recipes that are healthy, nourishing, actually tasty and satisfying, introducing new dishes that are simple to make.Based on how Anna likes to eat day to day, ‘A Modern Way to Eat’ covers everything from a blueberry and amaranth porridge to start the day to a quick autumn root panzanella or avocado, butterbean and miso salad for lunch; a tomato and coconut cassoulet, pistachio and squash galette, or mint, ricotta and courgette polpette for dinner. Packed with recipes that explore the full breadth of vegetarian ingredients – different grains, nuts, seeds and seasonal vegetables – and alternative approaches to cooking that avoid too much dairy or heavy carbs and gluten, this can be a cookbook for how we wish to eat now.
