I rented the fabulous cook, Plenty, by Yotam Ottolenghi from my local library.

I’ve been salivating over it for a few months now and jumped at the chance to pick it up. My dad, the die-hard meat eater (sidebar, we once got in a screaming match at a Persian restaurant when I told my parents I was thinking of going vegetarian), was drawn in by the pictures and proposed a challenge: we were going to cook our way through the book!
It was full of delicious flavors, heads of garlic, onions, carrots (my addition), and herbs. It was also simple to make! Just get all the prep work done first & then in the oven it goes. I think we’re going to make it again for Thanksgiving, but add the tomatoes a bit earlier.
The tomatoes just looked so purdy I had to take a snapshot!
I’d give this dish an A++++! I went back for seconds, and thirds, maybe even fourths. We had it with lamb chops, my dad’s recipe, and totally delicious. I can’t wait to try our next recipe! You can find the recipe here.
