From the creator of the popular blog, Occasionally Eggs, comes a beautiful debut cookbook exploring the bounty of the seasons, filled with more than 110 simple vegetarian recipes.
Alexandra Daum loves nothing more than harvesting her garden throughout the year, and creating satisfying, seasonally-driven recipes. In her first cookbook, Occasionally Eggs, she shows us how simple it can be to cook healthy(ish) vegetarian meals with local fruits and vegetables, and pantry staples, like grains and legumes. Hard-to-find ingredients are kept to a minimum, with a focus on flavour combinations that make the best possible use of market finds. Largely plant-based, with the exception of occasional uses of honey and eggs, this book will inspire you to include fresh, local produce in your daily meal preparation.
With over 110 delicious and nourishing recipes, Occasionally Eggs will create excitement as the seasons change. You’ll explore fresh, vibrant flavours in spring and summer, with dishes like Chickpea Apricot Grain Salad, Spring Pesto Pizza, Sweet Corn and Zucchini Pakoras, and Strawberry Elderflower Ginger Beer Floats. In autumn and winter, it’s a time to enjoy cozier, warmer meals, including Apple Hazelnut Waffles, Sesame Roasted Delicata Squash, Smoky Mushroom Pumpkin Chili, and Tahini Date Banana Bread.
