I’m going out on quite a limb here… but if you are a vegetarian OR a meat-eater that also enjoys and respects AMAZING vegetarian dishes, buy this book.
I was lucky enough to receive it as a gift from Richard’s sister. Thank you, Julie!
Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi is full of unique vegetarian dishes, perfectly curated to appeal to the novice home cook, as well as the more experienced cook who may be looking for something just a bit more adventurous.
It doesn’t hurt that photographs paired alongside nearly every recipe (ahem, something that I always appreciate) are absolutely stunning.
I chose to make the “Very Full Tart” as my first recipe from the book. It’s a savory Mediterranean tart filled with roasted vegetables, feta cheese, sweet caramelized onions, eggs, cream, and loads of fresh thyme.
The recipe can be found here.
(It’s a bit lengthy to type out for this post, but PLEASE do not let that discourage you from making this deliciousness.)
Yes, it took a couple hours (prepping and cooking), but it was SO SIMPLE. There are no complicated sauces or fancy ways of chopping things. It’s just a really tasty and simple-to-prepare tart.
Did I mention that it’s kinda like pizza in the sense that it’s amazing warm-from-the-oven AND cold?
I am eating a cold slice for brunch right now.
OH MY GOD.
I hope you’ll make this tasty tart — and let me know what you think!
Enjoy your weekend!
