Cook the Book: 'Super Natural Every Day'


Many of you might already be familiar with Heidi Swanson and her blog 101 Cookbooks. She began her journey in 2003 cooking her way through her massive cookbook collection and chronicling her adventures in wholesome, natural cooking on her blog, illustrating each post with her airy, light-filled photos.

Her latest cookbook, Super Natural Every Day is filled with nourishing, vegetable and grain heavy recipes, the sort of inspired dishes that elevate vegetarian cooking to something truly incredible. Similar to another favorite vegetarian cookbook, Yottam Ottolenghi's Plenty, Swanson uses her pantry full of international ingredients to create thrilling takes on meatless meals in this book. Her broccoli salad gets a salty, garlicky punch from sauce gribiche and a kale salad gains an earthy sweetness from toasted coconut.

This week we'll be exploring Swanson's unique approach to vegetarian cooking with recipes from Super Natural Every Day. We'll be tossing a Mostly Not Potato Salad with dill, celery, and tofu, dressing Harrisa Ravioli with feta and and pine nuts, and mixing up a cool pitcher of Sparkling Panakam, an Indian Cooler with ginger, lime, and just a hint of salt.
