One of the benefits I have enjoyed over the years of writing this blog is that occasionally people will send my cookbooks to try, and anyone who knows me knows how much I LOOOOVVVE vegan cookbooks. Reading cookbooks and daydreaming about what to make is so enjoyable and relaxing. When I am able to set aside some free time to just sit and unwind, nothing is better than leisurely flipping through a cookbook and letting myself be inspired by all of the wonderful ideas other people have had and shared.
As I mentioned, the book is filled with great recipes to help you make some truly delicious meals, and I know I will return to it for inspiration time and time again. I recently made a fantastic pasta dish served with a side of her "Seitan Scallops in Lemon Sauce," and it was quite tasty. It got me thinking that I should try that same recipe again with the scallops from Sophie's Kitchen Vegan Scallops and I think it would be quite wonderful.
Today's post is a shout out both to the company I really love, Microcosm Publishing, and to Cecilia Granata, for her unique and tasty book of vegan Italian recipes. I hope you will give Mama Tried a try and that you will enjoy it as much as I do!
