Few foods have seen the spotlight in recent years as much as the coconut. Since lingering at the bottom of the fashionable fruit chart, the brown, hairy, and difficult-to-crack contender has risen to the top, making up for what it lacks in looks by packing a nutritional punch. Its liquid form has even been referred to as an “uniquely curative elixir”―indeed, the humble coconut is certainly having its moment.
Once confined to the filling of a Mounds bar, coconut now comes in an array of forms. Part of The Goodness Of… series, this book is arranged by texture and variety, with chapters on Milk & Water, Oil, Flour, and Dried. Packed with an amazing range of recipes from savory dishes such as coconut-crusted Spicy Chicken or Grilled Vegetables with coconut chips to sweet things such as coconut flour pancakes and Coconut & Cherry Bircher Museli, Emily will have you going nuts over nature’s finest and most versatile ingredient. The unassuming coconut is now taking its rightful place as the darling of the “superfoods”.
