The ultimate one-stop vegetarian cookbook-from the author of the classic How to Cook Everything

Hailed as "a more hip Joy of Cooking" by the Washington Post, Mark Bittman's award-winning book "How to Cook Everything" has become the bible for a new generation of home cooks, and the series has more than 1 million copies in print. Now, with "How to Cook Everything: Vegetarian," Bittman has written the definitive guide to meatless meals-a book that will appeal to everyone who wants to cook simple but delicious meatless dishes, from health-conscious omnivores to passionate vegetarians.

"How to Cook Everything: Vegetarian" includes more than 2,000 recipes and variations-far more than any other vegetarian cookbook. As always, Bittman's recipes are refreshingly straightforward, resolutely unfussy, and unfailingly delicious-producing dishes that home cooks can prepare with ease and serve with confidence. The book covers the whole spectrum of meatless cooking-including salads, soups, eggs and dairy, vegetables and fruit, pasta, grains, legumes, tofu and other meat substitutes, breads, condiments, desserts, and beverages. Special icons identify recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less and in advance, as well as those that are vegan. Illustrated throughout with handsome line illustrations and brimming with Bittman's lucid, opinionated advice on everything from selecting vegetables to preparing pad Thai, How to "Cook Everything: Vegetarian" truly makes meatless cooking more accessible than ever.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2007-09-15)

This impressive new cookbook from Bitt-man, prolific author of The Best Recipes in the World and numerous other "How To Cook Everything" titles, presents more than 2000 recipes and variations. Most of the recipes are quick and easy; prep times are given for each one, and icons indicate those that are especially fast, can be made ahead, and/or are vegan. Along with the hundreds of recipes, there are "lexicons", detailed guides to ingredients, in almost every chapter; useful charts on everything from grilling vegetables to essential herbs; and dozens of boxes on all sorts of topics.

There are also lists of variations and other ideas, from "10 Simple Additions to Potato Salad" to "13 Ways To Jazz Up Precooked Vegetables". The book's appeal will certainly not be limited to vegetarians (itself an increasingly flexible term), as more and more Americans are eating meatless meals at least part of the time. An essential purchase for all cookery collections.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great for healthy meal planning I was hoping there would be helpful hints in pairing recipes for balanced and complete meals, and to my great surprise there were sample menus for each meal: Breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as holiday celebrations. This was a really good purchase! 03/12/2012
