From the Publisher
Dreaming up flavorful yet nutritious meals, night after night, is one of the greatest challenges in cooking for your family. It’s even harder to think of meals that incorporate plenty of vegetables. My mother would often say that 'thinking' of a dish to cook was much harder than actually making it; I wholeheartedly agree. Family meals should not be a chore, although I know they can often feel this way. Over the years, I have learned that cooking for your family is made easier by drawing on 'classics'—meals that we can pull together from memory with minimal effort and ingredients. The recipes in this book are my new family classics, the multicultural meals that I like to serve around my table. Some are old favorites, and many are variations on much-loved comfort food, repackaged with a healthier outlook.
Gnocchi with Asparagus, Edamame, and Parmesan
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the gnocchi. Cook for 2–3 minutes, until the gnocchi floats. Drain and refresh under cold water.
Heat a large frying pan over medium–high heat, drizzle with oil, and, once hot, add the asparagus, along with a pinch of sea salt. Fry for about 2 minutes, until the asparagus pieces are starting to char but are still crisp. Remove from the pan.
Place the pan back on the heat and add the frozen edamame with a splash of water and a pinch of sea salt. Cook for 2–3 minutes, until the beans are soft, but have a bite. Drain and add to the asparagus.
In the same pan over medium–high heat, drizzle some oil and, when hot, add the gnocchi. Fry until the gnocchi are golden and crispy. Remove from the pan and cool slightly.
Combine the gnocchi with the asparagus, edamame, and chives. Squeeze over the lemon juice, drizzle some olive oil, and season with a big pinch of sea salt and lots of black pepper. Scatter the shaved Parmesan.

Having discovered Neighbourhood whilst in Australia and since buying Community, not a week has gone by when we don’t create one of her delicious recipes.
Very excited to get stuck into Family and our first dish was divine.
Pros: WHAT AN AMAZING BOOK! I have been making as many recipes as possible (given my picky-eaters family), more than once, and love them all. I can't put this down. The images/illustrations are fantastic. The recipes are ethnically varied, unusual, original but NOT impossible. Yes, here and there I had to make a few adjustments--but unless you are a total novice, anybody can figure out when there are "off" moments in the instructions.
I hate other vegetarian cookbooks that cater to the diet industry. This one is about preparing delicious dishes and good food. I can't wait for this author to write more books. (Her only other two books are about salads.)
So far the most incredible dish has been the Turkish gozleme (see photos). Also the sweet potato Mac&cheese came out fabulously, and so did the curry chickpeas with yellow rice (wow!).
