Paul McCartney Entering the Cookbook World

Following in his late wife’s footsteps, Sir Paul McCartney has released a vegetarian cookbook.  Would you eat anything in it? I am all about the meat, but I’m going to give this one a try.

Paul McCartney wants to help those in search of trimming meat out of their diets. He already has declared Mondays “Meat Free Monday” (Unlike us here at The Loon who have declared Mondays “Free Meat Mondays”) but now he is expanding that with his new cookbook, The Meat Free Monday Cookbook: A Full Menu for Every Monday of the Year that he wrote with his daughters Stella McCartney and Mary.

In it, Paul offers two main courses and four other alternate menu ideas for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Paul has some of his favorite dishes and also has help from some of his veggie-loving celebrity friends like Kevin Spacey and Woody Harrelson. It was already published in October in the U.K., but it was just released here in the U.S. this week.

Most people think vegetarian equals boring, but there’s one recipe for Spring Vegetable Stew that’s actually worth a shot. I also tried a recipe for BBQ Fruit Kebabs. It makes an interesting side dish or dessert that you can bring fully prepared to family reunions or parties. All you have to do is throw them on the grill and who doesn’t love cooking with fire?

Here’s what you need:

Kebab skewers, cubed pineapple, cubed apple, cubed pear, cubed melon, grapes and strawberries, water and sugar. If your skewers are wood, make sure they are soaked first so they don’t catch on fire.

Arrange the fruit however you like on the skewers. Meanwhile, heat four tablespoons of water and sugar in a pan and when it has thickened into a syrup, allow to cool slightly. Brush fruit with the syrup and place on a hot grill. Turn frequently to allow sugars to brown slightly. Kebabs are done when the fruit is crisp-tender.
