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.

Review:

"Mark Bittman's category lock on definitive, massive food tomes continues with this well-thought-out ode to the garden and beyond. Combining deep research, tasty information, and delicious easy-to-cook recipes is Mark's forte and everything I want to cook is in here, from chickpea fries to cheese souffles." Mario Batali, chef, author, and entrepreneur

Synopsis:

Known for simple recipes, great-tasting food, and straight-shooting advice, Mark Bittman has inspired a whole new generation of cooks. Now, with How to Cook Everything Vegetarian, he delivers the ultimate guide to meatless meals. Like his bestselling, award-winning How to Cook Everything, this masterwork is comprehensive, authoritative, contemporary, and approachable—a book that sets a new standard and finally makes vegetarian food accessible to every home cook. Written not only for vegetarians but for those who—like Bittman himself—are omnivores striving for a more health-conscious, planet-friendly diet, it provides everything you need to build meals around delicious meatless recipes.

How to Cook Everything Vegetarian is packed with more than 2,000 recipes and variations—an unprecedented number of ways for you to enjoy satisfying meals without missing the meat. To name just a few of the great dishes you'll find inside: Cherry Tomato Salad with Soy Sauce, Rich Zucchini Soup, Pan-Grilled Corn with Chile, Eggplant-Tofu Stir-Fry, Pasta with Caramelized Onions, Lentils and Potatoes with Curry, and Breakfast Polenta "Pizza." And because Bittman is a self-taught home cook, not a restaurant chef, his recipes are refreshingly straightforward, resolutely unfussy, and unfailingly delicious—dishes that you can prepare with ease and serve with confidence.

The book covers the whole spectrum of meatless cooking: salads, soups, eggs and dairy, vegetables and fruit, pasta, grains, legumes, tofu, breads, condiments, and desserts. To make choosing recipes easier, special icons identify those recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less, those that can be made in advance, and those that are vegan. And throughout the book, handy, creative charts, sidebars, and lists give you brilliant ideas and tips for everything from spicing up tomato sauce to grilling vegetables. Illustrated with 250 how-to illustrations and brimming with Bittman's familiar, no-nonsense advice on everything from cooking an omelet to preparing pad Thai, How to Cook Everything Vegetarian is the first vegetarian cookbook that everybody will want.

Bittman does it all, vegetarian style. I respect him immensely for his writing on health, food politics, and food justice in The New York Times, but he first earned his chops for his recipes. This immense cookbook explains the role of different ingredients, breaks down cooking techniques, and offers thousands of recipes, many of which are quick but delicious. Perfect for any cook, especially those leaning toward a meat-free or reduced meat diet.

I wanted to find more recipes that incorporated and highlighted vegetables that my family would enjoy. Despite the very high recommendations, Deborah Madison's book didn't do much for us. I loved Bittman's How to Cook Everything, though, so I thought I'd try this. Bingo. Great options for vegans are included throughout the book, and several variations are given on many of the recipes. Easy to follow, lots of suggestions and tips, and great ideas for meal planning abound. His encouraging tone has me trying things I would not have thought about prior to his coaxing. Highly recommended!

There are multiple recipes for every vegetable I know in this cookbook, with many variations and substitutions for creative cooks. The recipes are clearly written, with easily accessible ingredients. I reach for it all the time!
