Pure Food – Eat Clean with Seasonal, Plant-Based Recipes
Author: Veronica BosgraafI
When I requested this book I was thinking it would be filled with vegetarian recipes utilizing vegetables and fruits for each season. Although I’m not a vegetarian I do enjoy vegetarian meals often and I’m trying to eat healthier and feed my family that way too. While the book does include vegetables and fruits for each season, what I didn’t know was it contains many vegan and gluten free recipes that really don’t interest me. Many of the recipes use almond milk which I don’t care for, but I can always substitute regular milk.
The book doesn’t contain many pictures. It has a few in a section in about the middle of the book. The ones that are there are gorgeous though.
I do enjoy the fact that the recipes are arranged by months as I enjoy being able to find recipes that call for ingredients that are seasonal. While many of the recipes don’t suit my families tastes, I did find a few that I would like to try including the one I made for our supper recently – Apple Walnut French Toast. Hubby and I really enjoyed this one. I did opt to use skim milk instead of almond milk. I couldn’t find walnut extract so I substituted almond extract instead.
While this book is overall not to my tastes I’m sure vegans and those looking for gluten free recipes would enjoy this book.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
