We love it whenever we get to celebrate the launch of new cookbooks by FBC Members. And it's even more fun when we have copies to give away for lucky readers!
So we're very excited to congratulate FBCer Cara Rosenbloom, RD on the launch of her new book, Nourish: Whole Food Recipes Featuring Seeds, Nuts and Beans, in collaboration with vegetarian chef Nettie Cronish.
Nourish revolves around the concept of eating a variety of whole unprocessed foods that are close to nature because eating well doesn’t hinge on a pinch of calcium here and a dose of vitamin C there. And, of course, what's the point of eating well unless everything tastes amazing!
Nettie and Cara have combined their talents to incorporate seeds, nuts and beans as vegetarian protein sources into familiar foods that everyone will enjoy, such as salmon crusted with sesame seeds, and pesto made with cannellini beans.
You don’t need to be vegetarian to reap the health benefits of these whole food ingredients. In Nourish, seeds, nuts and beans are added to meat and vegetarian dishes alike for the best of both worlds.
You are sure to find a few new favourites in this well thought-out book. Try Moroccan chicken and pistachio-studded quinoa; black bean breakfast burritos; or beets with spicy goat cheese and pumpkin seed pralines.
