What you craving? + What’s in your cupboard? = Joyful cooking your way
Heather Crosby loves a good recipe, but most of the time, she simply cooks pantry to plate. What’s that? It’s taking stock of what you have on hand and what you’re in the mood for—and then, well, improvising!
For example: Do you have some veggies, a protein, a binder, and some herbs and spices for flavor? Mix it up and you’ll have veggie burgers . . . no recipe required. In this one-of-a-kind cookbook, Heather shares:
30 ingenious recipe templates to help you freestyle plant-packed, gluten-free meals and snacks on the fly: Breakfast Cookies, Bites & Tots, Tacos & Wraps, Hand Pies, and more.
Plus, 100 delicious recipes that show the templates in action, from Maple-Spiced Pear & Toasted Pecan Parfait (based on the Coconut Yogurt template) to Pesto Chickpea & Quinoa Scramble (based on the Scrambles template).
Are you a recipe renegade who likes to bend the “rules”? A health-conscious cook seeking more kitchen confidence? Are you busy or tired of going shopping for just one missing ingredient? With the flexible templates in YumUniverse Pantry to Plate, gluten-free, plantiful goodness is at your fingertips.
