Overall it turned out to be pretty tasty. I'm really picky about dal, so that says a lot. Sort of looks like a bowl of slop, but it is good. I haven't tried any other recipes from this cookbook. I used to own one of her veg cookbooks, which prompted me to get this one.
Earlier this week I made the Rice Cereal recipe that was in the booklet from the detox class. They didn't make it in class. Pretty simple stuff (liquid such as amazake or almond milk, rice, raisins, water, agave, vanilla. soak overnight, cook for an hour the next day - an hour because it's rice). I tend to dislike things like oatmeal unless there is a ton of maple syrup and fruit on top. Thus the lake of maple with chopped up pears (though they look like potatoes). I had some leftovers today and it seems like the raisins really permeated everthing so it's much sweeter on it's own. I'm about 2/3 along the way of liking this stuff. I think oatmeal lovers would like it.
This is a pic of the Judge grubbing for some bread. He only wants it because it's slathered in Earth Balance. Total grease hound.
