"Forget about the fact that it's a vegetarian's best friend, Plenty is the sort of cookbook that any home cook will fall for. It's as meaty as its meat-filled counterparts." -- Charlotte Druckman, food52.com^Ottolenghi's book "Plenty" rose to be a best seller in Britain on its release last year (it appeared here several months ago), and is among the most generous and luxurious nonmeat cookbooks ever produced, one that instantly reminds us that you don't need meat to produce over-the-top food. -- Mark Bittman, The New York Times^"The flavors in Plenty are so bright, curious and new - to my palate at least - it made me wonder, where is our Middle Eastern Mario? And how quickly can Ottolenghi open in New York?" -- Christine Muhlke, food52.com^"The book that launched the cult. The recipes not only made vegetarian food sexy (note: Ottolenghi wants you to know he loves meat), they also made Western cooks crave Eastern Mediterranean flavors." - Christine Muhlke, bon appetit

Quinoa and grilled sourdough salad
This summery bread salad isn't much short of a whole meal. I have taken the traditional Arab fattoush, changed the bread and bulked it up with quinoa, which is the only grain I dare to use in this salad as it's very light and delicate. A lot rests here on the poor tomato. If your tomatoes are sweet and juicy you may not need as much dressing to perk them up. If they are "dry" and bland you may want to add a bit more. Leave the prepared salad to sit a little so the bread croutons can soften up - unless you want them mega-crunchy.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the quinoa in a saucepan of boiling water and cook for 9 minutes, or until tender. Drain in a fine sieve, rinse under cold water and leave to dry.
Brush the bread with a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle with some salt. Lay the slices on a baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes, turning them over halfway through. The bread should be completely dry and crisp. Remove from the oven and allow to cool down, then break by hand into different-sized pieces.
Cut the tomatoes into roughly 3/4-ince dice and put in a mixing bowl. Cut the cucumbers into similar-size pieces and add to the tomatoes. Add all the remaining ingredients, including the quinoa and croutons, and stir gently until everything is mixed well together. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

The book is beautiful enough to be out sitting on your coffee table (with recipes illustrated wonderfully), but the recipes are too good not to use it well. This book is organized by major ingredient (which makes it easier for me at least when I am trying to use up specific things in the fridge). Recipes are good as is or as inspiration!
Buy (and visit Ottolenghi's restaurants if in London! We were recently there and had a fabulously magical experience at Nopi)
This is my favorite go to cookbook for fast and easy delcious meals to accompany meat or not
