Have you ever bought a cookbook that just blows your mind, recipe after recipe, page after page. I have a stack of recipe books I’ve collected over the years, where most of the recipes are just, “meh”. Hundreds of dollars in books that collect dust on my bookshelves. But not this one…
Now, The Sprouted Kitchen cookbook is a cookbook that stands on its own. This cookbook does not disappoint in the least. First, the photography is phenomenal. Hugh Forte knows how to see food through his lens! And second, the recipes from Sara Forte are so so good.
A couple of weeks ago a group of us decided to all pick recipes from the book, and photograph our adventures in the kitchen. Here is mine. Since I am vegetarian I tend to make the “meatless” dishes. This time I chose the papaya and red quinoa salad with a mexican caesar dressing. I love anything made with red quinoa and the sweet papaya balance with the caesar dressing is just perfect. And to top this recipe off it also has roasted salted pepitas (pumpkin seeds). Oh my goodness, this is good.
This is food to enjoy. This is food to feed your family and know that you are doing right by them.
