Publisher Comments:

With The Moosewood Cookbook, Mollie Katzen changed the way a generation cooked and brought vegetarian cuisine into the mainstream. In The Heart of the Plate, she completely reinvents the vegetarian repertoire, unveiling a collection of beautiful, healthful, and unfussy dishes — her “absolutely most loved.” Her new cuisine is light, sharp, simple, and modular; her inimitable voice is as personal, helpful, clear, and funny as ever. Whether its a salad of kale and angel hair pasta with orange chili oil or a seasonal autumn lasagna, these dishes are celebrations of vegetables. They feature layered dishes that juxtapose colors and textures: orange rice with black beans, or tiny buttermilk corn cakes on a Peruvian potato stew. Suppers from the oven, like vegetable pizza and mushroom popover pie, are comforting but never stodgy. Burgers and savory pancakes — from eggplant Parmesan burgers to zucchini ricotta cloud cakes — make weeknight dinners fresh and exciting. “Optional Enhancements” allow cooks to customize every recipe. The Heart of the Plate is vibrantly illustrated with photographs and original watercolors by the author herself.

Review:

"Katzen elevated vegetables from canned side dish to main act in her ground-breaking The Moosewood Cookbook. This collection again shines the spotlight on the glories of vegetables, but focuses on their natural flavors rather than rich accompaniments such as butter, cream, and cheese. Katzen does an admirable job, not only in lightening and simplifying but in creative recipes that combine everyday vegetables in appetizing ways. Her soups, both hot and cold, are particularly satisfying and are reason enough to buy the book. Mushroom wonton soup, tomato-coconut soup with Indian spices, and cucumber-melon-peach gazpacho round out a tasty array of options. Salads abound, including kale Caesar and fattoush. Grains, burgers, and pasta complement stellar chapters on superb stews with equally fabulous accompaniments such as very simple lentil stew with cottage cheese dumplings and black-eyed pea, squash, and shiitake stew with ginger-pecan mini biscuits; cozy mashes that include broccoli, parsnips, and peas; and vegetables with a twist such as brussels sprouts with cranberries, flash-fried kale with garlic, almonds and cheese, and twice-cooked Italian broccoli. While suppers from the oven might conjure images of tired casseroles, Katzen provides refreshing options such as mushroom popover pie and asparagus puff pastry tart. Desserts are equally appealing, from fruit-studded madeleine cake to olive oil-walnut-pomegranate baklava. As an added bonus, more than half of these recipes are vegan. Katzen once again reminds us that simple, fresh, and flavorful vegetables can be inspirational as well as nutritional. Agent: Steve Troha and Jeff Kleinman, Folio Literary. (Sept.)"

Holly Scudero, November 25, 2013 (view all comments by Holly Scudero)
Mollie Katzen has been known and loved by vegetarians for years, and her past books have been credited with helping to bring meatless cooking to the mainstream. Now Katzen returns with a brand new cookbook of epic proportions, “The Heart of the Plate.” This four hundred plus page masterpiece has recipes that will surely appeal to everyone, whether vegetarian, vegan, or omnivorous, with more than two hundred fifty recipes that span all cuisines and embrace a wide variety of flavors. Are you in the mood for soup? Try Golden Mango-Nectarine Gazpacho. How about a hearty rice dish? Katzen offers Forbidden Rice with Beluga Lentils and Mushrooms. There is an entire chapter devoted to "Cozy Mashes," because beets and broccoli taste good mashed too (although not necessarily together). There are one-dish "Suppers from the Oven”, "Burgers and Savory Pancakes," and even a unique selection in the "Desserts" chapter. Many of the recipes are either vegan or can become so easily. Katzen also includes "Optional Enhancements" for most of the recipes, which help home cooks truly customize these dishes to their own tastes. Most ingredients can be found in regular grocery stores, although some will require your nearest health food store, and the recipe instructions are simple and easy to follow. This volume deserves a place on your cookbook shelf!
