Chickpea Piccata from Isa Chandra
tuuuurtle! totally unrelated to this post, but really cute, no?
I'm not one to be excited about vegan dishes, usually. We have several vegan restaurants in Memphis and I haven't tried any of them. My husband and I both eat anything, so usually a (to me) more realistic option for us is somewhere that, you know, serves dairy and meat.
However. I also really love vegetables and could probably become vegetarian if the need arose. I usually order meals that aren't very meat-centric, and we eat meat-free salads all week long (which helps us balance out our typical gluttonous weekends of eating out and my baking habits). So, when I saw Appetite for Reduction in my suggested reads on my Amazon homepage, I was somewhat dubious but intrigued because, wow, if you take one look at the reviews it's pretty hard not to see that this is a promising book. I bought it last year sometime, and of course am just now getting around to using it.
But poor me! I could have been enjoying these recipes for an entire year. Dang, people, these are good recipes. Not only are they full of flavor, you have barely anything to feel guilty about - approximately 200 to 400 calories per serving and you're done. Seriously, go try some of her recipes here. And then buy her book.
