A greener way to cook for you, your family, and the planet
Award-winning cook Anna Jones has penned a book that will be well appreciated in these strange times. We are aware of global warming, pollution of every kind, as well as waste – and that includes food waste.
One Pot, Pan, Planet is a collection of over 200 fuss-free and enticing recipes. These dishes are practical in preparation as well as clean-up, and that will be music to many an ear. The title sounds a bit worthy, noble, and correct but I think it will also appeal to those readers with no agenda at all.
These lockdowns have encouraged many of us out into our gardens. We love the safe tranquillity and the opportunity to try growing a few veggies at home. But what do we do with that harvest and those periodic gluts? One Pot, Pan, Planet offers traybakes, one-pot soups and stews, one-pan fritters, and all these delicious meals are made with seasonal vegetables from your garden or your local supermarket. This book gives inspiration to allotment holders who are planning this year’s plot. Might be time to try something new.
Won’t break the bank
One Pot, Pan, Planet has a wealth of ideas for your common and economic vegetables so meals will never be boring. I have plenty of pick-of-the-book recipes and they include Japanese Sweetcorn Fritters, Pimenton Burgers, Spiced Aubergine and Halloumi Cheese, and Crispy Potato Polenta and Cheese Pancake, which is so versatile. Dishes here would work well as a casual lunch, a family dinner or even to impress guests – and these plates won’t break the bank, either.
One Pot, Pan, Planet: A greener way to cook for you, your family and the planet helps us grow better, buy better, waste less and save more, and stay healthy while we are doing it.
