E.g. "Simple Rice Bowl"
-4 cups cooked brown basmati rice (see p. 3 for instructions on cooking rice)
-1 batch Tahini Sauce (see p.98 for instructions on preparing the Tahini Sauce: 6 additional ingredients + food processor)
-8 tsp tamari
-2 carrots, grated
-1 bunch parsley, chopped
-1 lemon, cut in wedges
And, it is typically served topped with Marinated Tofu (see p. 90) or Marinated Tempeh (see p.89).
And this is the SIMPLE Rice Bowl :-)
For whatever it's worth, I made it, and it was absolutely delicious, but very labour intense... ideal for a restaurant, but a little impractical for a weeknight supper at home :-)
Having said that, the dishes really are delicious, and worth the planning and the effort. The book itself is beautiful: glossy paper, a ton of gorgeous colored pictures...
As to the juice recipes in the second part of the book: they're surprisingly tasty and easy to make.
While some recipes require a little work, it's WELL worth it. I love this restaurant but live far away and I can't wait to compare their versions to my homemade meals when I make it to the city next :) Fave recipes: Rocket Fuel Shake, Buddha Rice Bowl, Holiday Wrap, Crispy Tofu. yum yum yum!!!!
This book is also a two-part book. The second half is dedicated solely to juicing. I was able to pick a juicer (Breville Ikon) that I was super happy with based on the advice written. The recipes presented are unique combinations you won't find anywhere else. She skips the banana and strawberry only combos (even though they are great) combo because they are a stable in nearly any juice & smoothie book as filler. Only originals here! How about one with ginger, lemon, cucumber, apple and carrot? It wouldn't have been my first instinct but wow, it works. Iron Chef Susur Lee also contributed an all-red juice involving beets, raspberries and apples. Highly thoughtful and crafted. If you're a gym-nutsy and are bored of your regular protein mixes, recipes you'll love are in here too. The same goes for you coffee-aholics with espresso shakes including a healthier combination for those hooked on Starbucks Java Chip shake. Have trouble drinking wheatgrass? Ruth Tal has some knock-out combos for you. I had the Singing Grasshopper from the restaurant and was blown away how pleasant it was to drink it all.Read more ›
What I like best is the way in which recipes build on one another. ie the Sauce section includes a handful of sauces that are used and built upon elsewhere in the book. Perhaps obvious for sauces, but also true for other sections. This makes it easy to use up left overs, and aids in recipe cross-pollination.
