It’s here! The first cookbook in the “How To Cook With Vesna” series.
In this very special cookbook, you’ll get decades worth of great recipes I’ve collected and perfected from all different points along my lifelong whole foods cooking journey, from vegetarianism and Macrobiotics to low-carb/paleo living. And some great home-baked sweets and treats just for fun! Here’s just a sampling:
- Simple Tuna Salad. Lunch in 90 seconds — or make the complicated version, and take three minutes instead!
- Falafel. The only item in the cookbook that uses a mix, but with an easy, dollar-stretching twist that you won’t find on the box!
- Homemade Salad Dressing. Made from whatever healthful oils you choose, and so easy!
- Scrumptious Moussaka. That cheesy, custardy, mysteriously fragrant, baked eggplant dish that costs plenty at a Greek restaurant.
- Southern Pecan Pie. You’ll never buy one loaded with artificial ingredients after you try this simple, delectable delicacy.
- Candied Sweet Potatoes. Grown-ups and kids alike will love this wholesome, fiber-rich side dish made with just a sliver of the sugar in conventional recipes.
“I believe cooking is one of those things that makes humans special — like music and language. Learn to cook whole foods from scratch with traditional methods, and you learn to live. Plus, cooking is the easiest way to get something really good to eat.”
Discover a life in cooking.
I’m Vesna Vuynovich Kovach, a published food writer and the founder of how-to-cook-with-vesna.com.
I’ve opened my vault! I’ve stayed up nights for you, transcribing unique, painstakingly developed gems from my tattered, bursting-at-the-binding recipe notebook into this one-of-a-kind cookbook. Why? Because I don’t believe in secret recipes — I believe in spreading the good word of great cooking.
Whether you’re a seasoned cook or a kitchen beginner, you’ll find plenty to love in this whole-foods oriented cookbook loaded with recipes, tips and stories. From perfect brown rice to super-simple tuna salad, from homemade salad dressing to soup stock, this cookbook is a diverse and eclectic selection that encompasses a variety of styles and items – which is another way to say that it’s a glorious hodgepodge of this and that.
Did you know that…
You’ve been throwing away a precious food ingredient.
Make your home cooking better — free!
Most people throw away this item. Instead, you can use it to unlock the secret of umami — Japanese for “the taste of tastiness” — that professional restaurant chefs learn to create in culinary school. And never spend a penny on soup stock again.
This is why your homemade French fries are greasy and soggy.
Make great fries directly from real potatoes!
If you’ve eaten organic farmer’s market or garden potatoes, you know how indescribably better they are. But if you don’t know this Belgian secret, your home-sliced potatoes won’t turn into crispy French fries like the ones from your grocer’s freezer do.
If you do this even once, you’ll wreck your brown rice.
Perfectly fluffy brown rice doesn’t require a cooker.
Most recipes tell you to do certain things that are guaranteed to make your rice lie wet and flat on the plate. The trick is knowing how to make use of the intricate network of steam tunnels that form naturally.
You’re paying 20x too much for tortilla chips.
Restaurant-quality chips are ridiculously cheap!
Imagine serving a basket of warm, freshly made, crispy tortilla chips with your own homemade salsa. And that a few pennies’ worth of them would fill one of the bags you used to buy at the convenience store.
Inside this cookbook you’ll discover…
- How to make perfect pancakes from scratch, with or without buttermilk
- How to make salsa and guacamole from fresh, wholesome ingredients
- The only pie (and quiche) crust recipe you’ll ever need, and the secret to rolling them out flaky and tender every time
- How to make cornbread without a speck of wheat flour
- How to make perfect Indian dhal
