In The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking, legendary New York Times Recipes for Health columnist Martha Rose Shulman offers a simple and easy method for creating delicious plant-based meals every day, regardless of season or vegetable availability. Accessible and packed with mouthwatering, healthy, fresh dishes, The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking accomplishes what no other vegetarian cookbook does: It teaches the reader how to cook basic dishes via templates-master recipes with simple guidelines for creating an essential dish, such as a frittata or an omelet, a stir-fry, a rice bowl, a pasta dish, a soup-and then how to swap in and out key ingredients as desired based on seasonality and freshness. By having these basic templates at their fingertips, readers-wherever they live and shop for food, and whatever the season-will be able to prepare luscious, meatless main dishes simply and easily. They are the ideal solution for busy families, working moms, and everyone who wants to be able to put a wonderful vegetarian dinner on the table every day, angst-free.

A true teacher's teacher, Martha Rose Shulman takes the reader by the hand and walks them through 100 mouthwatering dishes including: Minestrone with Spring and Summer Vegetables; Vegetarian Phô with Kohlrabi, Golden Beets, and Beet Greens; Perciatelli with Broccoli Raab and Red Pepper Flakes; Stir-Fried Noodles with Tofu, Okra, and Cherry Tomatoes; Basmati Rice with Roasted Vegetables, Chermoula, and Chickpeas; and much, much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vegetarian foundation! I find this book very educational even that I have been vegetarian for a long time. I love her idea of template cooking - the basic recipes that can be changed based on what you have.

Editorial Reviews

"Accessible, fresh, healthy vegetarian recipes...All together, this makes for the kind of cookbook that feels both supportive of learning to cook with new ingredients and also totally inspirational ... [The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking] is a concentrated dose of everything I like about this food writer, and I heartily recommend picking it up." -THE KITCHN"The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking is both an extremely practical tool for creating everyday meals...When you're overwhelmed by cookbook overload, or weary of weeknight cooking, this book will come to the rescue. Read it once, and you'll feel prepared for a week's worth of meals; grab it when you're feeling desperate, and you'll come out on the other end, with dinner in hand." -Food52"In recent years we've seen a rise in vegan and vegetarian-interest cookbooks," says Rodale editor-at-large Elissa Altman; Rodale's titles in the category include Rose Schulman's The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking. But the next wave will highlight "the place of vegetable at everyone's table--including meat lovers'." -Publishers Weekly
