The ultimate spiralizing cookbook for turning your favorite dishes into clean meals that fit into any diet, whether low-carb, vegan, gluten-free, or raw.
Inspiralize Everything is the second cookbook by the indisputable authority on the topic, Ali Maffucci. This new book is organized alphabetically by type of produce, allowing you to cook with whatever you already have on hand, what comes in your CSA box, or what you find at the farmer’s market. Ali highlights more than 20 vegetables and fruits, detailing their nutritional value and preparation techniques, including the more abundant beets, butternut squash, and carrots, but also the less common chayote, jicama, and kohlrabi.
Each recipe was crafted to become a well-loved staple in your repertoire with a focus not only on healthy eating, but also on easy cooking. Diet customization options, veggie swap suggestions, and special attention paid to one-pot, make-ahead, and no-cook meals ensure that Inspiralize Everything will become a workhorse in your kitchen. Want a vegan dinner that’s minimal on cleanup? Try Cheeseless French Onion Soup. How about a hearty meal that’ll make great leftovers for lunch tomorrow? Winter Lasagna with Butternut Squash, Brussels Sprouts, and Chicken Sausage is for you. Need a super detox to reset your tastebuds? The Watermelon Radish Nourish Salad with Lemon-Ginger Vinaigrette is just the thing. Sweet tooth satisfaction? Proceed straight to the Zucchini Noodle Bread with Coconut Cream Frosting.
Whether you have weight-loss goals, follow a specific healthy lifestyle, or just want to make good-for-you food at home, this book has the answer. If you’re a spiralizing pro, this book will become your recipe bible; if you’re just starting out, it will teach you everything you need to know. Either way, get ready to be inspiralized.
My thoughts: I've had my eye on a spiralizer for some time, but I just didn't know if I would use it and what I would do with the vegetables once I had them all spiraled. Well, this cookbook caught my eye, and I am so glad it did! The recipes are a great variety, from hearty pasta like dishes to stews, pancakes to avocado tacos. Now, I just need a spiralizer to go with this amazing cookbook...;)
I received this book from blogging for books in exchange for my honest review.
