The Food Matters Project

The Food Matters Projects Recipes 2

 

As many of you know, I’ve been part of a group of bloggers cooking our way through Mark Bittman’s cookbook The Food Matters in an effort to incorporate more fruits and veggies into recipes.

It’s been almost a year and a half cooking recipes with this group and the project came to a close last week.  Thanks to Sarah and Kate for creating the concept and to Lexi for keeping it up. Every week I was inspired by the group of women who were a part of the project, I’d say it was quite the success ladies. I’ve truly added more fruits & veggies to my diet too. I love it!

It is really hard to pick a favorite recipe from the book.  I crave this Thai Fried Rice. This Seared Bean Sprouts with Beef + Orange Glaze is so super simple and quick. This Savory Tomato Crisp is a fresh vegetarian side to bring to a party that anyone would love and the Chorizo Smothered Cauliflower is insanely addicting. My Mom makes the Red Curried Vegetable Tomato Soup a lot and she has raving fans. In the Winter months the Cassoulet is a must. For the Summer heat definitely make these Summer Rolls, you will amaze yourself creating something so light and surprising at home (and you can fill them with almost anything)!

Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the recipes and cooked a few yourself along the way. Here are the Food Matters Cookbook recipes I’ve posted in one place. Enjoy.
