Come Hungry: Salads, Meals, and Sweets for People Who Live To Eat

Morrow Cookbooks Jan. 2024. 288p. ISBN 9780063299276. $35. COOKING
Cofounder of the bite-sized cupcake business Baked by Melissa and author of Cakes by Melissa, Ben-Ishay holds the culinary philosophy that mealtime is for nourishment, and dessert is for indulging. When her green goddess salad became a viral sensation, it provided her the opportunity to bring her veggie-forward, nutrient-packed approach for eating to readers in the form of this cookbook. It contains 100 recipes for everything from salads (caramelized tomatoes and leeks with arugula; orzo pasta salad) to different delicious spins on toast that embrace avocados, tomatoes, cottage cheese, and cucumbers. Ben-Ishay then offers up sweet treats such as a cookie-butter icebox cake and cheesecake-stuffed chocolate cookies, as well as providing practical tips on making one’s own spice mixes and pickling vegetables. The book’s vibrant color photographs make all the dishes look even more tempting, and the easy-to-follow format of each recipe practically guarantees success.
VERDICT This fresh, flavor-packed cookbook makes it easy to load up on vegetable-focused meals.
