Nowadays, everyone wants to eat a little more healthily. Whether that’s moving away from meat, eating more fruit and vegetable, or finding ways to include nutritious grains. But no one wants healthy eating to be a chore – we all want food that’s delicious, easy to prepare and full of excitement and fresh flavours.
Anna Jones is a brilliant young food stylist and recipe developer who trained with Jamie Oliver. Her first cookbook will be a repertoire of recipes to help us eat healthily and to thoroughly enjoy every minute of it. Based on how she eats day to day, the recipes will be vegetarian and packed with fresh and nutritious ingredients. From a blueberry and amaranth porridge to start the day, to a sweet potato quesadilla for a quick meal or a tomato and coconut cassoulet for dinner, these are recipes that are modern, satisfying and refreshing. The book will also include quick recipe spreads, for even more ideas: guides to making pesto, how to build a perfect salad, how to enjoy underdog vegetables.
