Unicorn Food: Natural Recipes for Edible Rainbows is everything that your colorful food eating self could ever desire. The aim is to eat a rainbow, but a healthy one. These recipes are both balanced and colorful and will delight your eyes as well as your taste buds. There are ways to make natural food coloring using cabbage, blueberry juice, tumeric, spinach, etc. I’m not exactly sure how these will end up making foods that taste delicious, but I’ll keep reading…
OK so all of these recipes have pictures to go along with them (yaaay!) and look AMAAAAAAAAAZING. I don’t know if I could ever actually make any of them (and if I did I’d probably use regular food coloring even though it is probably terrible for me) but omg. Rainbow sushi? pancakes? cheesecake? I will take them all, please and thank you.
If you are as on the unicorn train as I am, you’re not going to want to miss this book. Even if you just want to look at the pretty pictures and not actually end up making anything, it’s worth checking out.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
