Recently we were invited to review The Oh She Glows Cookbook. Jane usually likes to try three recipes before we write up a post as she thinks it isn’t fair to judge a book by just one recipe.
Our initial impression was that the cookbook was very appealing, the photography is mouthwateringly beautiful, but would the actual results live up to the photos? YES! At least for the three recipes we tried.
First up, Jane made the Indian Lentil-Cauliflower Soup. If you don’t like curry, this probably won’t work for you, but we love Indian cuisine so this was right up our alley taste-wise. This recipe is a soup; we also had it on top of rice for a slightly heartier meal.
For our recent road trip up to Santa Cruz, Jane made the Perfect Roasted Chickpeas. They are a great snack and Jane has plans to try the Salt and Vinegar Roasted Chickpeas next as she loves that flavor combo.
Our final recipe for review was the Life-Affirming Warm Nacho Dip. We loved this one best of all. Jane added half a package of Trader Joe’s vegan ground meat to the recipe because she had some that had been recently opened and needed to be used. This was a smash hit with our friends too. Jane is planning on making this again and using it as a base for some kind of burrito or quesadilla. Yum.
It’s not all that often that we find a cookbook that we are as excited about as this one. If you get one new cookbook this year, do yourselves a favor and buy The Oh She Glows Cookbook.
