Here are some of our favorite cookbooks. All books are more than mere collections of recipes, but they inspire a general change in diet towards natural, fresh, nutritious foods. In addition to taste, maintaining health plays a major role for everyone. Probiotic vegetables, with their now scientifically proven positive effects on the intestinal flora, the immune system and digestion, therefore have a firm place in all the diets propagated by the authors. We think: A great source of inspiration for how fermented vegetables can be integrated into the daily diet in a varied and delicious way.
Simply Heavenly Healthy by Lynn Hoefer
We think the second book by the woman from Lüneburg is even better than the first! In fact, all of the more than one hundred recipes are really uncomplicated and all of the ones we have tried simply taste really good! Lynn celebrates healthy, plant-based eating effortlessly and authentically. The dishes are lovingly photographed by herself. On the subject of fermented foods, there is a basic kimchi recipe. There's also a whole chapter on the topic of meal prep - and all SUUR herbs, shots and sauces are perfect for this.
Celebrating Whole Food by Amy Chaplin
This book by the Whole Food Queen from New York is more of a basic work for modern, predominantly vegan whole-food cuisine. If you want to read up on how to prepare cereals, legumes and the like, this is the place for you. Fermented vegetables also have a firm place in Amy Chaplin's healthy, sometimes quite elaborate, but definitely worthwhile cuisine. There are also super nice food photos!
Little Green Kitchen by David Frenkiel and Luise Vindahl
On Green Kitchen Stories, Luise and David describe and illustrate the dream of a healthy and happy vegetarian family dining table more beautifully than almost any other blog. In her latest book, the recipes are even more child-friendly than they already are. Fermented vegetables are regularly on the table and in the lunch boxes for the family of five, for which there is a separate chapter. The little tips with which healthy and fermented vegetables can be “smuggled” into the diet, even for skeptics, are great.
Beauty Kitchen by Carla Oates
In her book, the Australian Carla Oates not only deals with the physical well-being that good, healthy food can give us, but also with the effects on our appearance, ie skin and hair. She, too, swears by the positive effects of fermented food. This makes you want to and motivates you to change your own diet with other aspects in order to do something good for yourself. The recipes are partly inspired by "Paleo cuisine", ie there are also meat and fish dishes.
food for a happy gut by Naomi Devlin
The lesser-known Englishwoman divides her book into three parts: Heal, Nourish, Calm and food is not just food for her, but also "medicine". Her penchant for healthy cuisine developed from massive personal digestive problems and intolerances. A change in diet brought relief to the professional chef and so she wants to pass on her positive experiences with this book. Fermented vegetables are an indispensable part of Naomi Devlin's omnivorous diet due to their positive effect on the intestinal flora.
Hemsley + Hemsley Naturally good eating by Melissa and Jasmin Hemsley
In their book, the two sisters from London swear by the fermented four: coconut yoghurt, fermented vegetables, fermented ketchup, sauerkraut and kimchi and celebrate a casual cuisine that does not contain gluten, dairy products or refined sugar. There are many vegetarian and vegan recipes in the book, but also some with egg, meat and fish.
