I love onion rings but don't deep fry at home, so I was excited to try the OMG Oven Baked Onion Rings (recipe here). And they are AWESOME. I use large bread crumbs, though, so I ran out... then again, I think I took more rings per onion than Isa's recipe called for. I didn't take a picture--we ate them pretty quickly.
The salad dressing recipes in Appetite for Reduction are one of its major selling points for me. I love salad dressing, and use homemade dressings almost exclusively, but I hate how much fat and oil dressing recipes call for. Appetite for Reduction's recipes use small amounts of oil and tahini for richness.
While I'm hunting down the best homemade vegan Caesar dressing, the boyfriend is on an eternal quest for the perfect homemade goddess dressing. So I made him the Green Goddess Garlic Dressing, below.
I also really liked the Wild Rice Salad with Oranges and Roasted Beets..
Appetite for Reduction is a lot more than salads. In addition to the onion rings, I've made a couple of the heartier entrees, including the Chickpea Piccata. Busy Vegan Mama made it a while ago, and her picture of it made it so appetizing I had to try--I've since made it twice. It is a lot more delicious than the sum of its parts, if that makes sense. It is simple to make but tastes complex.
I am saving the best for last: the Baked Falafel was AWESOME.
I'm excited to try more from this book. Have you tried anything from Appetite for Reduction? Any favorites, or recipes I should avoid?
