Cold Sour Tomato Soup

Cold Sour Tomato Soup

Cold Sour Tomato Soup excerpted from Fire, Smoke, Green by Martin Nordin.

InFire Smoke Green by Martin Nordin Martin Nordin’s second book, he brings us a host of mouthwatering, modern vegetarian recipes, using the most elemental and ancient method of cooking: fire. Not just a barbecue cookbook, Fire, Smoke, Green is broken up into seven chapters that cover everything you need to know about making great food over the flame: from grilling directly onto fire, to cooking with indirect fire, smoked recipes, and even wood-fired pizza

Atmospheric photography and charming illustrations throughout bring you something other than your average vegetarian cookbook—as lovers of Martin’s first book Green Burgers will attest, his approach to meat-free cooking is anything but boring. Try the Roasted and smoked potatoes with beer-caramelized onions; the Fennel roots with shiitake, green onion, buckwheat and herb oil; or Harissa-marinated sweet potato with grilled cabbage leaves and black dukkah. Or if you still can’t get enough of the burger recipes, why not try the Zucchini and mungbean burgers with sriracha mayonnaise and furikake, washed down with a smoky Mezcal with grilled grapefruit.
