This beautifully illustrated vegetarian cookbook by bestselling author Hetty McKinnon features modern, easy, and healthy recipes for a new generation of families.
Dreaming up flavorful yet nutritious meals, night after night, is one of the greatest challenges in home cooking. The secret to success is developing a repertoire of family classics--simple, adaptable, and nourishing recipes that you will want to cook time and time again. In Family, Hetty McKinnon shares her approach to modern, hearty, and healthy comfort food that is powered by vegetables. Some of these recipes are heirlooms, passed on from her mother, others are old family favorites, and many are healthier variations on much-loved food. With everything from a deconstructed falafel salad of roasted chickpeas and fresh greens to an earthy miso brown butter pasta with sage to sticky banana golden syrup dumplings, this book provides fun, uncomplicated food for everyone. Interwoven with McKinnon's recipes are family stories from home cooks around the world. Family teaches home cooks how to build a repertoire of crowd pleasing, flavorful vegetarian meals and shows families how to successfully eat healthily together.
“Cooking is clearly Hetty’s love language. Her recipes are nourishing and connect friends and family together in a way that seems joyous, celebratory, yet simple and functional. I am lucky to have cooked alongside her and know firsthand how hearty, textural and flavorful her food is. This book honors her multi-cultural roots and encourages us to do the same.” – Aran Goyoaga, creator of Cannelle et Vanille and author of Small Plates & Sweet Treats: My Family’s Journey to Gluten-Free Cooking
