I would most likely make the fettuccine with broccoli raab or the roasted cauliflower and white bean salad, but I can’t say I’m not already dreaming about the crostini with young pecorino, grilled figs, and arugula mint pesto… Can’t wait for figs to hit my farmers markets!

Angelina May 2, 2012 at 12:27 pm

braised fennel- actually made it and loved it. But hard not to love anything that combines fennel and vermouth

Albert May 2, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Jessica May 2, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Bruschetta with lightly cooked cherry tomatoes and fresh ricotta :)

Gigi May 2, 2012 at 12:28 pm

It’s a tie between the Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Shiitakes and Smoked Paprika (as an adult I’m re-learning to like eating brussels sprouts) and my sweet tooth: strawberry “shortcake” with cornbread and tarragon whipped cream (with berry season upon us, it looks like a yummy summer treat).

Jill May 2, 2012 at 12:29 pm

My favorite is Spicy vegetarian spaghetti alla carbonara. I fell in love with anything carbonara on a trip to Rome many years ago!

Beth May 2, 2012 at 12:30 pm

Watermelon and sweet onion gazpacho! Sounds refreshing & light for the impending relentless summer heat.

Kimani A. May 2, 2012 at 12:31 pm

Fettuccini & Raab, so good!

Megan May 2, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Pan Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Shiitakes and Smoked Paprika. I’m always looking for Brussel Sprout Recipes, as I’ve discovered a love for them later in life (and being a vegetarian).

Gwen L. May 2, 2012 at 12:39 pm

Wow… so many amazing recipes to choose from! Since I’m on an ancient grain kick right now, I’ll go with the farro and chick pea soup. Can’t wait to get this cookbook… looks awesome!

Awesome cookbook! My fav of Michael’s posts is the Peach-Sour Cream Buckle – it looks like an incredible summer dessert!

cindy May 2, 2012 at 1:02 pm

yum, tomato sushi!!

Lucia O'Barr May 2, 2012 at 1:02 pm

The Pan Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Shiitakes and Smoked Paprika recipe is my absolute favorite. I love Brussel Sprouts, and especially when you can find a way to load
the with flavor. The Shiitakes and the smoked paprika add so much to brussel sprouts, enhancing their flavor. Somehow the richness of the flavor feels like an indulgence, but really it is a healthily prepared side dish or even main dish.

Olivia May 2, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Banana Brown Sugar Muffins! Something I can make TONIGHT!

Natasha May 2, 2012 at 1:05 pm

I want to try the “rice cake stew” When I saw it I was like ‘YES!’ I have a Korean friend that exposed to these things and ever since then I’ve been looking for recipes for how to make them ;0)

Maureen May 2, 2012 at 2:24 pm

Wow, everything looks so tasty and now I’m starving… but if I had to pick one it would be either the banana buttermilk brown sugar muffins or the blue cheese apple crostini. Yum – now I really want to win the cookbook! Thanks, Maureen (jnomaxx at hotmail dot com)

Persimmon carpaccio with fennel salad-this is such an elegant appetizer/salad course. I made it with asian pear because the persimmons at the market weren’t nearly ripe enough, but it was still amazing.

I love fennel, so his recipe for braised fennel looks and sounds super yummy, and yet so simple I can’t wait to try it out!

Steve2 in LA May 3, 2012 at 12:24 am

It would have to be the mandu, man. The mandu!

Chris May 3, 2012 at 12:35 am

Gosh it was hard to choose. I did like those Brussels sprouts with the shitaki,
but I will vote for the
Coconut Rice with Black Beans, Plantains, and Mango Salsa
It is a very unique original way to serve a traditional Cuban meal. It is gluten free, vegan and served beautifully. I will be making this soon!

Liz May 3, 2012 at 2:59 am

Oh Yes! Peach and Sour Cream Buckle!

Lena May 3, 2012 at 3:29 am

Wow, how have I not linked to a Michael recipe before? I’ll definitely be trying the Gorgonzola w/chard and polenta and the rhubarb crisp with home grown produce this week. I love the styling and creativity of all the recipes and can’t wait to view Herbivoracious. Good luck with it Michael.

kari May 3, 2012 at 7:00 am

It’s a toss up which post is my favorite!! It’s between Mushrooms Escabeche and Vegetarian Frijoles Charros…..

I love the Tteokbokki – Spicy Korean Rice Cake Stew. I had been looking for a recipe for a spicy Korean stew, and this one absolutely hit the mark and has become one of my favorite recipes!

Jon Wolf May 3, 2012 at 10:38 am

Watermelon and sweet onion gazpacho, right up my alley, really looking forward to making it this season!

Alex May 3, 2012 at 10:44 am

The poha recipe looks really interesting and definitely something I’ve never tried before

Amanda Moonbeam May 3, 2012 at 10:45 am

Ddeokbokki!!! When I lived in Korea I went through a phase where I ate this literally every day. So excited to see a vegan recipe for it!

melina May 3, 2012 at 10:54 am

Spicy vegetarian spaghetti alla carbonara with spicy pickled peppers.

Pomegranate-glazed Freekeh Kofte – Recipe

I fix a lot of different Middle Eastern foods for the health benefits and they are delicious and as well as beautiful. The Pomegranate-glazed Freekeh Kofte I have not tried but would love too, actually all the recipes are beautiful! This cookbook would get a work out in my kitchen!

Thanks ~Kim~

Hongos en Escabeche. I love recipes that take advantage of the texture of whole mushrooms instead of breaking them up!

Nicole B May 3, 2012 at 11:19 am

Spicy vegetarian spaghetti alla carbonara with spicy pickled peppers. delish!

Laurel May 3, 2012 at 11:23 am

Heather May 3, 2012 at 11:34 am

That tomatoe sushi looks crazy good. Reminds me of the tomato caviar I love to make – and everyone loves to eat. :)

Plus this book. WOW!

Erica Long May 3, 2012 at 11:36 am

Soooo hard to choose, they all look AMAZING! I’m going with Crostini with Young Pecorino, Grilled Figs, and Arugula & Mint Pesto.

Claudia May 3, 2012 at 11:56 am

I love his Dutch Baby recipe. It was his first video recipe and an immediate success.

lauren May 3, 2012 at 12:09 pm

The vegetarian chili recipe is great! It was the first chili that I made with real chiles instead of chili powder, and I was so proud

kimberly May 3, 2012 at 12:15 pm

The Spanish lentils and mushrooms are a regular favorite with my family!

Leah May 3, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Swiss chard, onion, and monteray jack enchiladas!

Jen May 3, 2012 at 12:33 pm

It’s a toss-up between the over-the-top eggplant parm, which appeals since I’m getting an eggplant in my fruit and veggie share today, or the seared watermelon, since I’m starting to crave watermelon season.

Nikki May 3, 2012 at 12:36 pm

I’ve made a few of Michael’s recipes but my favorite thing is his salt post. I’ve forwarded that to dozens and dozens of friends who think using salt is going to give them high blood pressure. It’s raising MY blood pressure that they say that! Food is tasteless without salt and I’m glad someone addressed this. Thank you Michael!

Bebe May 3, 2012 at 1:31 pm

The Blueberry Buckle looks delish!

I’m intrigued by methi dal: looks and sounds fabulous. But pretzel ice cream? You’re singing my tune!

Sara May 4, 2012 at 4:40 am

I have been wanting to make Dutch Baby for so long–so my eyes immediately honed in there. Thanks for the giveaway–lots of gorgeous stuff.

Jesse May 4, 2012 at 4:46 am

Definitely want to try the blueberry buckle once our blueberry plants fruit!

Kathi May 4, 2012 at 5:03 am

Spicy Mama Lil’s spaghetti alla carbonara! My husband won my heart with this in our courtship days, but it was a recipe we wouldn’t touch today. What a cool thing to have a veggie version. Alas, we are not Seattle-ites, so must find a good Mama Lil’s substitute.

Steven May 4, 2012 at 5:33 am

Burnt Sugar Flan!
Looks wonderfully delicious!

Rebecca May 4, 2012 at 5:46 am

Labneh! My absolute favorite, it brings back memories of staying in Beirut.

Kouftikes de Prasa (Leek Fritter) Sandwich is the first thing that caught my eye.

Kendra May 4, 2012 at 10:24 am

Andrea May 4, 2012 at 10:52 am

The chef’s pretty yummy, but if I have to pick a recipe, homemade yogurt cheese!

Katrina May 4, 2012 at 11:48 am

How can you pick one favorite of Michael Natkin’s recipes? They all sound delicious and the photos are gorgeous. Okay, if I have to pick one, I’ll choose Methi Dal – Indian lentil soup, as I love lentils and Indian food.
