A follow-up to the successful Sous Vide at Home, with 65 recipes for easy weeknight meals using this popular cooking technique to greatest effect.
Sous Vide Made Simple couples the home sous vide machine with a do-ahead approach to help you streamline your cooking. The book centers around foolproof master recipes for flawless meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables that can be made quickly and easily (and in advance!) with your home immersion circulator, and then 50 spin-off recipes for turning these into crowd-pleasing full meals. Nearly all of the recipes can be prepped in advance, and then finished using a conventional cooking method, and on the table in under an hour.
Unlike other sous vide cookbooks, Sous Vide Made Simple isn't just meat and potatoes, instead, it's packed with vegetables, lighter fare, and globally inspired food, like Grilled Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa, Cauliflower Steaks with Almonds and Kalamata Yogurt Sauce, Carnitas Tacos with Salsa Verde, and Eggplant Shakshuka—as well as improved classics like Beef Bourguignon Pot Roast and Grilled Pork Chops with Apple Chutney—and every recipe is accompanied by a beautiful photograph.
Partly a how-to manual and partly a cookbook, Sous Video Made Simple gives the home cook, sous vide novice and old pro alike, all the information and encouragement to incorporate sous vide technology into a delicious everyday cooking repertoire.
