In this vegetarian cookbook, Anna Jones argues that home cooks' choices can make an impact on an environmental level; to assist with that effort, she offers recipes for appealing, satisfying food that's also simply prepared.
Placing an emphasis on the use of seasonal ingredients which can be locally sourced, she suggest dishes such as corn and cauliflower chowder, crispy white beans with kale, lemon, and Parmesan, and a quick spinach lasagna. For many pantry ingredients, such as potatoes, there are also lists of 10 quick prep methods that barely qualify as recipes but still produce something toothsome.
Throughout the book there are tips for reducing food waste, either by using scraps that might be discarded or by reusing leftovers. Suggestions abound as well for living with less plastic, supporting biodiversity, and evaluating fair trade claims.
A wholly practical book that hopes to appeal to the better angels of your nature.
