Hot, Charred Cherry Tomatoes with Cold Yogurt  One of the beauties of this dish lies in the exciting contrast between the hot, juicy tomatoes and fridge-cold yogurt, so make sure the tomatoes are straight out of the oven and the yogurt is straight out of the fridge. The heat of the tomatoes will make the cold yogurt melt, invitingly, so plenty of crusty sourdough or focaccia to mop it all up is a must alongside.  Serves four as a starter or part of a mezze plate  12 1/4 oz (350g) cherry tomatoes  3 tbsp olive oil  3/4 tsp cumin seeds  1/2 tsp light brown sugar  3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced  3 thyme sprigs  6 oregano sprigs: 3 sprigs left whole and the rest stemmed, to serve  1 lemon: finely shave the skin of 1/2 to get 3 strips, then finely grate the other 1/2 to get 1 tsp zest  flaked sea salt and black pepper  1 2∕3 cups (350g) extra-thick Greek-style yogurt, fridge-cold  1 tsp Urfa chile flakes (or 1/2 tsp other crushed red pepper flakes)  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.  2. Place the tomatoes in a mixing bowl with the olive oil, cumin, sugar, garlic, thyme, oregano sprigs, lemon strips, 1/2 tsp of flaked salt, and a good grind of pepper. Mix to combine, then transfer to a baking sheet just large enough--about 6 x 8 inches (15 x 20 cm)--to fit all the tomatoes together snugly. Place the sheet about 2 inches (5 cm) beneath the broiler and roast for 20 minutes, until the tomatoes are beginning to blister and the liquid is bubbling. Turn the oven to the broil setting and broil for 6-8 minutes, until the tomatoes start to blacken on top.  3. While the tomatoes are roasting, combine the yogurt with the grated lemon zest and 1/4 tsp of flaked salt. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.  4. Once the tomatoes are ready, spread the chilled yogurt on a platter (with a lip) or in a wide, shallow bowl, creating a dip in it with the back of a spoon. Spoon the hot tomatoes on top, along with their juices, lemon strips, garlic, and herbs, and finish with the oregano leaves and chile flakes. Serve at once.

Library Journal Review

With this latest release, Ottolenghi (Plenty; Jerusalem) offers a pared-down version of his signature Middle Eastern-inspired fare, with the explanation that "simple" means different things to different cooks. This volume highlights dishes that can be made in under half an hour, using ten ingredients or fewer, those that can be prepared ahead of time, and others that use mostly-or only-pantry staples. Working within these constraints forces the author to flex his creative muscles, and the results shine. Recipes are divided into chapters on brunch; raw vegetables; cooked vegetables; rice, grains, and pulses; noodles and pasta; meat; seafood; and dessert. There are also meals such as pea, za'atar, and feta fritters; soba noodles with lime, cardamom, and avocado; and fig and thyme clafoutis. A section at the end offers menu suggestions for events such as midweek suppers, weekend brunches, and feasts throughout the year. VERDICT Ottolenghi's many fans will want this book, but it will also appeal to home cooks looking for exciting, approachable recipes. An essential purchase.-Stephanie Klose, Library Journal © Copyright 2018. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.

Publishers Weekly Review

As Ottolenghi lightheartedly points out, he is often teased for requiring a surfeit of exotic ingredients in his bestselling cookbooks, which include Nopi and Jerusalem. This collection is meant to remedy that with "simple" dishes, though that simplicity is hazily defined, as many recipes call for a long list of ingredients. In a gimmicky touch, each of the letters in simple has been assigned a meaning (L is for lazy, E for "easier than you think"), and recipes are tagged accordingly. But these categories are coy: dishes tagged with a P, for example, can be made with what readers are presumed to have on hand in the pantry, which in this case includes urfa chile flakes and black garlic. This book may not be as challenging as Ottolenghi's previous collections, but a side dish of harissa chickpeas with flaked cod calls for 13 ingredients, and baked mint rice with pomegranate and olive salsa has 14 ingredients. That said, the chef's imagination shines in items like a cakey beet and goat cheese bread. Comfort food with an international twist rules the day: highlights include baked potatoes and soft-boiled eggs with Italian tonnato sauce, and lamb siniyah, a shepherd's pie with a crust of tahini rather than mashed potatoes. Desserts include a mixture of crushed graham crackers, melted chocolate, pistachios, and rum-soaked raisins refrigerated until set, and a no-churn raspberry ice cream. Claims to simplicity aside, this is yet another appealing cookbook from a pro who seems to turn them out with ease. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
