Even fans of Yotam Ottolenghi will admit that his ingredient lists can be rather long…and his ingredients esoteric. Now, in Ottolenghi Simple,  the Israeli-born powerhouse author and chef presents 130 streamlined recipes packed with his signature Middle Eastern–inspired flavors, all simple in at least (and often more than) one way: made in 30 minutes or less, with 10 or fewer ingredients, in a single pot, using pantry staples, or prepared ahead of time for brilliantly, deliciously simple meals. Brunch gets a make-over with Braised Eggs with Leeks and Za’atar; Cauliflower, Pomegranate, and Pistachio Salad refreshes the side-dish rotation; Lamb and Feta Meatballs bring ease to the weeknight table; and every sweet tooth is sure to be satisfied by the spectacular Fig and Thyme Clafoutis. With more than 130 photographs, this is elemental Ottolenghi for everyone.

Come to FJC to select a recipe. To be accessible to all, the book must remain in the FJC library and not be checked out.
