Is it weird to review a cookbook? Maybe, but I unabashedly love this cookbook and have gifted it to many people, many of whom aren't really vegetarians. The meals are verseatile, easy, and really freakin' delicious. The recipe that made me a convert: Eggplant Involtini - fried eggplant, rich tomato sauce, and so much yummy, gooey cheese.— Amanda
Best-Selling vegetarian cookbook destined to become a classic.
Everyone knows they should eat more vegetables and grains, but that prospect can be intimidating with recipes that are often too complicated for everyday meals or lacking in fresh appeal or flavor. For the first time ever, the test kitchen has devoted its considerable resources to creating a vegetarian cookbook for the way we want to eat today. The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook is a wide-ranging collection of boldly flavorful vegetarian recipes covering hearty vegetable mains, rice and grains, beans and soy as well as soups, appetizers, snacks, and salads.
More than 300 recipes are fast (start to finish in 45 minutes or less), 500 are gluten-free, and 250 are vegan and are all highlighted with icons on the pages. The book contains stunning color photography throughout that shows the appeal of these veggie-packed dishes. In addition, almost 500 color photos illustrate vegetable prep and tricky techniques as well as key steps within recipes.
