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.
