Sara Forte’s Sprouted Kitchen features healthy food, which is beautifully photographed and the food actually tastes good. Oh, by the way, there is a price to pay. Not a money price, no, but something just as precious….your blood. Wait, no, it’s your time.
Want to make some of the best veggie burgers you have ever eaten? You can, but you should have started them yesterday. You might be able to make them for dinner if you start making them as you chew your last bite of your lunch. This story really happened: I was going to make the burgers for Sunday dinner but I made some homemade powerbars first. (That was a mistake). Then I started the burgers, but it was getting so late I had to make sandwiches for dinner. Essentially, I had to make base camp and go for the summit the next day. I wanted to cry. Admittedly, I may have had low-blood sugar, PMS or was exhausted—possibly all three. Anyway, on Monday I almost cried again because I realized these were delicious. And that was bittersweet because I realized that I needed to make them again. Argggh.
Bowl+Spoon is the Sprouted Kitchen's follow up book. Sara is a blogger so "the Sprouted Kitchen" is her brand, I haven't been on it lately because they had a baby and it's 60% baby...I'm like I CAME HERE FOR FOOD NOT BABY. Bowl+Spoon is kind of dumb name for a cookbook. Food+Mouth? Now this came out right during the whole everything's a bowl thing. You want to hate them don't you? So precious, California hipster, millennials, mostly vegetarian, pics of a pretty young family eating outside like they don't have occasional diarrhea like the rest of us. Is there anything else I tell you that can make you a hater? Well, jokes on you because this is delicious too. Damn you millennial hipster! If you like grains + greens and delicious sauces pick this one up.
