The Green Roasting Tin: Vegan and Vegetarian One Dish Dinners (Rukmini’s Roasting Tin)
About this deal
Preheat the oven to 200°C fan/220°C/ gas 7. Tip the gnocchi into a large bowl, then pour a kettleful of boiling water over it and leave to stand for 2 minutes before draining well. Fabulous book with straight forward recipes: first half vegan, second half vegetarian (although, in my view, all the latter can easily be adapted for vegans); offering really tasty meals, ranging from super fast to slow cooked dishes. Best cookery book I’ve seen in years. Remove the tin from the oven and increase the heat to 200°C fan/220°C/ gas 7. Give the vegetables a bit of a stir, then top with the breadcrumbs and parmesan and return to the oven for a further 30 minutes. Veganism is NOT a dietary preference; it is an ethical position that seeks to reduce harm as far as possible to animals. Learn the ins and outs of all of the most delicious Vegan meals in this recipe book full of 75 different tasty dishes!
I liked this book and its recipes so much that I also bought the other books in the series. There are some similar meals, but overall I really like this set of books. These recipes aren't as one-dish as I'd hope, because often they are just a side dish, and you need to add a carb or another whole thing with many of the lighter salads. I love to cook as many friends and family will attest. I also like to read cookbooks. I rarely cook *from* them; the contents just marinate away in my head and eventually form themselves into dishes all of their own accord. After 20 minutes, stir through the Puy lentils, crème fraîche and another good scatter of sea salt, then top with the feta cheese and breadcrumbs. Drizzle with the olive oil, then return to the oven for a further 20–25 minutes, until golden brown on top. Ik kook graag maar het moet makkelijk zijn, snel én met veel groenten. Ik heb dan ook zelf al de geneugten van alles in één pan in de oven ontdekt (rijst onderaan, groenten erop en vleesvervanger bovenaan). Maar dit boek tilt dat alles naar een veel hoger niveau. Hierin staan recepten die niet alleen lekker zijn maar er ook goed uitzien én die je aan bezoek kan voorschotelen, zonder schaamrood op je wangen (wat met mijn uitvindingen niet echt haalbaar is).
From the book: The Green Roasting Tin
The ultimate vegetarian and vegan cook book. Seventy-five easy one-tin recipes: half vegan, half vegetarian, all delicious. Has some minor issues as a self-published cookbook, but there are some good recipes in here for vegetarians or flexitarians who are looking to mix things up a bit.
Really tasty, healthy recipes with a great variety of veg combinations I wouldn’t have thought of for myself. They’re easy to cook, the instructions are clear, they look fabulous when ready and there’s little washing up afterwards. I’ve used this book almost every day since buying it 2 months ago and don’t miss meat as the dishes are all substantial enough to feel satisfying, even the vegan ones. I’ve given copies of the book to my 3 kids From flexitarians to families, this book is for anyone who wants to eat easy veg and plant-based meals using everyday ingredients and store cupboard staples.Vegetarian recipes we love: Crisp Cauliflower Steaks with Harissa and Goat’s Cheese. Oven Baked Shakshuka. Storecupboard Pasta Bake. Tip the gnocchi into a roasting tin along with everything except the ricotta. Mix well – make sure you’ve used a tin big enough for everything to fit in one layer. Transfer to the oven and cook for 30 minutes, until the gnocchi is crisp and golden. Upon first read of the book, everything is presented really well, the photography looks awesome and the recipes seem to make sense. I’ve not seen anything in the vegan section that I thought I’d never cook – so that’s a big plus! The combinations look sensible and everything seems easy to follow (I have seen some criticism of the author in other books for poor proof reading of recipes – this is absolutely critical in cookbooks and something that happens all the time. I hate it when cookbooks have missing steps!) i’m not someone who needs the food i make to be pretty. i’m just me—flinging ingredients into chipped bowls in my tiny kitchen and hoping it all tastes good. i can appreciate the pretty food of others in books and on internet, and i understand that visually appealing food sells more cookbooks than ‘real-life’ food made by people like me without fancy cameras, food stylists, a tableware budget, or even adequate lighting.
I love Rukmini Iyer's books.' Judy Murray, OBE | ' Earned a place in kitchens up and down the country' Nigella Lawson | ' A boon for any busy household' Jay Rayner | ' This book has changed my life' Juno Dawson | ' So delicious. So easy' Nina Stibbe I am not a Vegan or vegetarian but I do enjoy eating vegetables, I like to eat at least 1-2 vegetarian dishes every week, it helps my Diet, saves money but Most all it can be tasty. BUT, and this is merely a good-natured gripe—this book WANTS me to fail. it WANTS me to feel the sting of inadequacy resulting from the comparison between my finished product and the book’s. it thumbs its nose at me as it dances around its spacious, well-appointed kitchen. because as lovely as this picture is, it is also a filthy liar. sure, that’s what it maybe looks like after you take it out of the oven, but THEN the recipe instructs you to stir it all up with olive oil and salt and herbs, which makes it look like THIS

Ik had als fantasievolle restjeskok al het één en ander samen gegooid maar in De groene bakplaat kwam ik geweldige combinaties tegen waar ik zelf nooit op zou komen. En Rukmini bakt dingen in de oven waar ik nog nooit aan gedacht had, zoals avocado en eieren. Ze geeft ook tips die ik nog nergens las zoals het steeltje van tomaten op de rijst leggen als smaakmaker tijdens het bakken (niet om op te eten). Meanwhile, mix the oil with the tamarind paste and sugar. Once the vegetables are cooked, toss with the dressing, then scatter over the peanuts, fresh coriander and the chaat masala and/or mango powder, if using. Serve with the yogurt, piled into flatbreads or naan. By far the best cookery book I have ever bought. This was a present for a friend as I already own a copy. My boys even eat cauliflower now - must be good. The only thing I would criticise is the amount of salt used. I always just halve it and it works out great. 10 minutes to prepare most of the dishes and 20 minutes to cook. What more can you ask. Give the coconut milk a good stir, then pour it over the beetroot and mix well. Return the roasting tin to the oven for 10 minutes.
