Quintess' Radiant Health/Inner Wealth
So, since one of our fellow VWers has created her own awesome cookbook, I think we should dedicate a cookbook thread to it. Whoever has ordered this book or tested recipes prior to the book's publication should contribute and maybe it will persuade others to order it and make quintess lots of $$$ ;D
So far, I've made:
Creamy Potato Leek Soup with Caramelized Scallions: delicious! Very smooth, great flavor, hearty but not heavy. Wonderful with some homemade tofu sour cream drizzled in as a garnish!
Whole Multigrain Bread: the best whole wheat bread I've ever made. It rises great, has a nice texture, very healthy, and just plain tasty! I would get the book just for this recipe!
Grandma's Apple Crisp: mmmm....I love apple crisp! I added some more margarine and about a 1/2 cup of rolled oats to the "crumb" mixture. Was very yummy!
Note from editor: The compilation of reviews for RHIW can be found on page 2 of this thread: Official review for Radiant Health Inner Wealth
Funky Chunky Guacamole Wrap - I used a different guacamole but I loved the combination of ingredients in the wrap.
Fresh Greek Delight - I made this with a collard wrap and omitted the olive oil. Added garlic sprouts. Loved it!
Blinknoodle, you're a rock star!! :-)
Lemon cilantro pakoras - These were delicious. Since we didn't want to deep-fry them, we experimented to see what we liked best: baked, pan-fried or fried in an aebleskiver pan. The baked version was the easiest and tasted the best. Wahoo! :)
Chili lime noodles
Very nice noodles. Omitted the carrots but added broccoli and panfried tofu. A definite keeper.
Dolmadas - Delicious. I almost wish I hadn't cooked them because they were super fresh before I cooked them in the grape leaves. Next time, I may simply steam the grape leaves and use the fresh filling.
Mango-Cucumber Spring Rolls- Using slightly ripe mangoes made this absolutely perfect. Loved this! I wrapped mine in a lettuce leaf.
Thai sweet chili sauce- My mom made this for me (I likely wouldn't have with all the sugar), but I though it was great with the mango cucumber spring rolls!
