We got a new cookbook!
Eat like you give a fuck is right! This book is amazing! We've already tried 4 different recipes and talk about impressed! So far I've made the spiced chickpea wraps, the biscuit and lentil gravy (which is my absolute fave so far!), Joey made the sriracha cauliflower and peanut dipping sauce and today I made minestrone! Pics below!
*Clearly there are pics of the food and plenty of them!
The delicious finished product!
I'm going to be honest here and say this isn't a 30 minutes or less cookbook (nor does it make any claims as such), and it does take a little work, and you do make everything from scratch. Although I would be sorely disappointed if I bought a cookbook and it said "Now take the chipotle mayo out of your fridge and slap it on that sammie." BUT to be fair I absolutely love cooking, that means I love all the prep and 'extra' (the meat of the meal if you will) work. So, there's that.
Now, as far as people being offended by this book (I'm not going to get into the politics of racial appropriation with this comment though, as some other reviews have.) YES there is swearing, and lots of it. If you proudly have the sense of humor of a 13 year old boy, like I must, then yes you will find it funny. If not you can always ignore those bits and just make the food, if it's something you can't ignore, I'd maybe try Appetite for Reduction, another fave of mine.
So far all of the ingredients were easy to find, but I also live in Pittsburgh, PA so we have some extensive grocery stores. In the past I couldn't find tahini to save my life, and several sources said to check the nut butters section, NO< check the ethnic ingredients sections or 'international'. Other than that and maybe some nutritional yeast, I haven't run across any 'weird' or 'expensive' ingredients.
