Book Review: The Homesteader’s Kitchen

I love it when people send me cookbooks to review, especially ones like this!  As you might guess, The Homesteader’s Kitchen (Robin Burnside) emphasizes beautiful fresh produce.  Recipes include tempeh and chard enchiladas,  cucumber yogurt mint salad, and butternut squash pie with maple whipped cream.

You can also learn to make vegetable smoothies, whole grain crackers, and yogurt cheese. The recipe I think I’ll try first is Bali Toast, a twist on french toast that involves yogurt and ripe bananas.  Yum!

Though there aren’t pictures with every recipe, the pictures scattered throughout the book make this one a pleasure to page through.  One in particular gave me a hankering for open shelving in my kitchen.   (My husband quickly brought that little fantasy back to earth by reminding me that our version of open shelving would look something like the kitchen department at Goodwill.  Ah, well…)

If you like cookbooks that feature fresh produce and simple healthy ingredients, this would be an excellent addition to your cookbook library.
