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 bookHow 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, withHow 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.

  • Great Cookbook!

    I came across this book at a bookstore, so I had the opportunity to browse through it (I always like to do that with books and cookbooks). The layout was good, and the recipes looked good, too. I was able to find it on Overstock for a hefty savings... The recipes were simple, but with plenty of variations. I like to think of myself as a pretty good cook, but I'm just starting out, and there are a lot of things I don't know the basics on. The recipes cater to both of those sides of me--deep enough for me to grow with, but covering the basics in the areas I'm clueless about. There are also a lot of explanations about things, too--the best soup recipes to use tomatoes in, when to salt veggies and when not to salt them, which kind of potatoes to use for which recipes. I'm not quite a vegetarian, but I'm thinking about it...what I know is I definitely want a more plant-based diet. I don't want plain boiled veggies all the time, or the same old salad. The author is not a vegetarian but has done extensive research...I think the book would be good for vegans, flexible vegetarians, and those who just want tasty veggie recipes. ps...I have already tried several recipes and enjoyed them thoroughly...Black Bean Soup, salad dressing (everyone loved this one).

    This was exactly the book I have been looking for! It is full of useful information and the writing is easy to understand. While I am not vegetarian, I have been looking for books that can help to eat vegetarian 3-5 days out of the week. One big fear was having to buy ingredients that I could only use once and then it would sit on the shelf until the next time I made the recipe.This book broke it down on how to do so and I can use a lot of the common every day pantry items. I feel very good about this purchase and cannot wait to get going on it.

    One need not be vegetarian to want great vegetable recipes. This is a super book! I checked it out of the library to look at, and had to have it. This was a super price. I would recommend the book to anyone who is making an effort at a healthy but fabulous food plan.

    This book is great! Tons of recipes when you may be looking for something different or just feel like getting away from meat and potatos for a while! Simple and easy to understand with plenty of substitute idea. Mark Bittman has some great cookbooks. I recommend his Fish cookbook as well!
