In this exciting new collection of over 200 simple recipes, Anna Jones limits the pans and simplifies the ingredients for all-in-one dinners that keep things fast and easy. These super varied every night recipes celebrate vegetables and deliver knock-out flavor but without taking time and energy. One Pot, Pan, Planet is a celebration of food, cooking, and togetherness; of the principles that ground how we live, cook, and eat; of showing love to those we hold dear, to our communities, and to ourselves.
One Pot, Pan, Planet is far from being just a cookbook. Anna brings together a way of eating that is mindful of the planet, with practical advice that shows how every small change in planning, shopping, and reducing waste will make a difference.
Besides the recipes, that we'll talk about in the next section of this review, this book is full of interesting and useful information. Throughout its pages, you will find a lot of different content, ranging from how to live with less plastic, what foods should fill your plate or how can you support biodiversity & soil health. But this is not all, you'll also find information about seasons and crops and ideas to help you use the foods that most often end up being thrown away.
One Pot, Pan, Planet is a book full of encouragement, of understanding, of joy; it’s like being led by the hand by a smiling, kind reveler, who wants only for us to enjoy food as much as possible, without wasting it or missing out on everything it brings.
The recipes in this book are grouped by what they are cooked in. Stews, soups and curries fill the One Pot chapter. Fritters, pancakes and crispy-edged veg make up the One Pan chapter. And easy all-in-one dinners and desserts are in the One Tray chapter. Anna has also included a collection of quick recipes for when time is short and a few slightly more complicated recipes for when you need to surprise your family and friends.
With a book focused on sustainable food, most of its ingredients are around seasonal British fruits and vegetables, low-impact grains and pulses, herbs and spices. The ingredients used in the recipes can easily be found in any well-stocked grocery store, or local farms' markets. Even if you don't live in the United Kingdom or Europe, you can easily substitute the seasonal British fruits and vegetables, for the fruits and vegetables that are in season in the area you live.
Although One Pot, Pan, Planet is a cookbook focused on sustainability and creating awareness for the way we buy and cook, which might seem a complex topic to some people, Anna has done a fantastic job in simplifying the recipes, cooking methods, and ingredients used. With such well-written book, not only you'll make mouth-watering recipes, but you'll also save time and money, as well as reducing the washing up and the energy used.
One Pot, Pan, Planet is much more than a cookbook, it is a wake-up call to how and what we eat. In this book, Anna shows everyone a greener way to cook for selves, family, and our planet. More than delicious recipes, this book will teach everyone to cook more sustainably. One Pot, Pan, Planet is a book where thought meets practical action, and where theory is grounded in reality.
One Pot, Pan, Planet is a delicious vegetarian cookbook, with lots of recipes for everyone who wants to start having a greener impact on the future of our planet.
