The Minimalist Kitchen: 100 Wholesome Recipes, Essential Tools, and Efficient Techniques is a cookbook, but more importantly, it's a framework for creating a minimalist kitchen, a kitchen pared down to the essentials so you can create more. This framework will touch everything in your kitchen from your ingredients, tools, pantry, to your cooking techniques, meal planning, and shopping habits. Once the framework is in place, you can make 100+ wholesome, mix and match recipes. You'll find Blueberry-Orange Breakfast Rolls, Banana-Coconut Baked Oatmeal, White Wine Spring Pasta, BBQ Black Bean and Quick Slaw Tacos, Crispy Pizza with Caramelized Onions, Chickpea Tikka Masala, Stovetop Mac and Cheese, and Two-Bowl Carrot Cupcakes. This comprehensive guide will hold your hand through the process and make dinnertime (and the kitchen) feel doable again. Chapter 1: The Minimalist Kitchen sets the stage for how to make and use the recipes in Chapters 2-8: Breakfast, Main Dishes, Burgers Wraps & Sandwiches, Soups & Salads, Sides, Drinks, Dessert. You'll find them to be vegetable forward and simple without compromising flavor. Look for Melissa's minimalist tips offering recipe-specific advice, a seasonal produce guide, and a handy metric equivalents chart to take the stress out of cooking.
