Simply Satisfying: Over 200 Vegetarian Recipes You'll Want to Make Again and Againby Jeanne Lemlin
Synopses & Reviews
Jeanne Lemlin is familiar to a generation of home cooks as a pioneering vegetarian cookbook author whose books—including the James Beard Award-winning Quick Vegetarian Pleasures—present accessible, reliable, and flavorful vegetarian recipes. Now, Lemlin returns to the cookbook shelf for the first time in more than ten years with this dramatic reinvention of her first book—originally published twenty-five years ago as Vegetarian Pleasures: A Menu Cookbook.
Simply Satisfying’s more than 200 seasonal recipes showcase readily available ingredients— particularly fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, and beans—as well as straightforward techniques, global influences, and, most delectably and rewardingly, robust flavors. Here are Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower and Jalapeños, Fragrant Vegetable Stew with Corn Dumplings, Leek Timbales with White Wine Sauce, Baked Eggplant Stuffed with Curried Vegetables . . . and for dessert, Raspberry Almond Torte, Rhubarb Cobbler, and Cowboy Cookies. Each inviting dish is simple enough to be part of a weeknight meal and certain to satisfy vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.
Lemlin guides cooks through both everyday and special-occasion cooking by offering 50 menu suggestions, helping new vegetarians avoid the “plateful of sides” dilemma, and giving seasoned cooks new ideas for entertaining. And she includes personal tips and a chapter on making “the basics” from scratch.
Whether you are a committed vegetarian or an omnivore who enjoys hearty meatless meals, Simply Satisfying may well become your most reliable, trusted source of recipes to make again and again.
Simply Satisfying is the cookbook for anyone who loves sophisticated food and hopes to forgo meat either permanently or just on occasion. Pioneering vegetarian cookbook author Jeanne Lemlin, who has been vegetarian since she was 15, comes back to her very first book—Vegetarian Pleasures: A Menu Cookbook, originally published by Judith Jones at Knopf in 1986—to create this completely new edition. Lemlin’s recipes are for busy cooks who want delicious food from readily available ingredients and no-fuss prep methods. Fresh vegetables, fruits, grains, and beans are the key components of these recipes, and they are transformed into meatless fare that appeals to vegetarians as well as dedicated carnivores. Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Cauliflower and Jalapeños, Fragrant Vegetable Stew with Corn Dumplings, and Raspberry Almond Torte are just a few examples of Lemlin’s tantalizing recipes. And she guides cooks through everyday and special-occasion cooking by offering menu suggestions, helping new vegetarians avoid the “plateful of sides” dilemma and giving seasoned cooks new ideas for entertaining.
