A couple of weeks ago, I was approached about reviewing a kosher cookbook. I had to pass because many of the recipes contained meat and I didn’t think I could do a good review only sampling a select few. The publisher instead asked if I’d like to review their kosher cookbook focusing on dairy — if you don’t know a lot about keeping kosher, if there’s dairy then there’s no meat! Meaning Dairy Made Easy is pretty perfect for a dairy-loving vegetarian like myself.
I’m not Jewish, so I obviously don’t keep kosher or know everything about it, but I was excited to learn a little more flipping through the book. In the back there’s a list of recipes that can also be made pareve, which is a dish containing neither dairy nor meat (so that they can be paired with a meat dish or a dairy dish). If you make the right choices (like choosing an eggless mayo), then many of the pareve recipes are even vegan! I did find one non-vegetarian recipe in the book (contains fish) but considering this isn’t made specifically for vegetarians, I think being able to make all but one recipe is pretty amazing. Most standard cookbooks that I’ve seen just have one, small lackluster chapter on meatless meals.
I chose to make the grilled avocado sandwich, which was a great choice. I was sold when I saw they made it on a waffle iron in the photo – grilled cheese on a waffle iron is a childhood favorite of mine! I also paired it with green beans with crunchy Parmesan — but to get that recipe, you’ll need to buy the book! The pages are the glossy texture I love in a cookbook because I can wipe away any spills, plus there’s a gorgeous photo to go with each recipe. I also loved the styling (you can see a preview on the Amazon page of a couple recipes) and the helpful tips they pair with some of the recipes. Even better, the publisher provided a second copy for a giveaway! Enter in the Rafflecopter below the recipe. Be patient, as sometimes it can take a little while for Rafflecopter to load.
