Less of a rigid regime, and more of an organic attempt to eat a mainly vegetarian diet, The Flexitarian Cookbook features delicious plant-centric recipes, with options for incorporating meat or fish as needed.
Many of us are looking to eat less meat and/or fish, as the host of environmental, ethical and health-related reasons for doing so stacks up. The concept of not centring every meal around an animal-based protein is well on its way to settling into mainstream society. But out there, there is a whole middle-ground of home-cooks, placed somewhere between carnivore and vegan, who are doing their best to reduce meat consumption, but enjoying it on occasion when the urge strikes; the flexitarians. The Flexitarian Cookbook is a collection of delicious, modern vegetarian recipes, with simple options for switching in meat or fish, as the mood takes you. No longer will flexitarians have to juggle between multiple cookbooks or haphazardly hash together a meaty ending to a recipe depending on their cravings. Recipes include a warm curried lentil salad with crispy paneer and spiced dressing, but the paneer can be swapped for crispy prawns if preferred. A winter vegetable stew with herbed dumplings is substantial enough on its own, but this cookbook gives the option to add slow-cooked beef cheeks, if you like. A best-ever recipe for vegetable and lentil moussaka offers the option to swap the lentils for regular mince meat, while the Moroccan spiced vegetable tagine gives an option for cooking with chicken, if the mood so takes you.
A collection of recipes inspired by the vibrant and diverse culture of the Levant, the region of the Middle East that stretches along the shores of the eastern Mediterranean.
The Levant is a place with a wide palate of tastes embracing numerous cultures in the southeast corner of the Mediterranean, the ‘fertile crescent’ that was the cradle of civilisation. When it comes to the food of the region chickpeas, tahini, feta, halloumi, aubergine, peppers, courgette, olives, pomegranates, mint, lemon and yogurt are among the staple ingredients. Dishes also call on nuts and seeds, as well as beans and pulses, plus the magic of fresh herbs and spices. Some of these spices are familiar ― cumin, cinnamon, turmeric, caraway, nutmeg and cardamom. Others are unique to the Levant, such as baharat, an Arabic mixed spice, or the lemony tang of sumac. Small plates to relish (relish being the original meaning of the Persian word maza from which the term mezze derives) include popular dips, salads and small bites – hummus, baba ganoush, tabbouleh and falafel – as well as less familiar recipes. Freshly grilled fish and seafood, served with yogurt dips flavoured with spicy harissa paste, or a simple coupling of mint and cucumber, are just the start of an ocean odyssey of tastes. For carnivores, chicken dishes are enhanced by all manner of spicy marinades, such as paprika and lemon-infused taouk; or how about grilled skewers of beef with a tahini-based tarator sauce; or one of the greats of Levantine feasting, a slow-roasted lamb shoulder steeped in spices and served with a pomegranate, yogurt and pistachio sauce. You’ll want to return to these delicious dishes time and again.
