I bought this cookbook with high hopes. I was looking for a way to spice up the veggie side dishes at home.
So far I have been disappointed with the recipes I have tried.
I made the brocolli with walnut sauce - the walnut sauce was tasty, much like hummous, but would have been better as a dip, rather then a sauce coating par-boiled brocolli. The two did not combine the way I had imagined. The brocolli was ruined and the sauce wasted.
The mushrooms with corriander seeds and white wine were very disappointing as well. I actually had to stop eating them. Same goes with the glazed carrots. Very unappealing results.
I have faith that there are good recipes to be found in this large book. I just need some direction.
What have you tried/made that has been a success?
