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:

"Today a good general vegetarian cookbook ought to be de rigueur in any kitchen.... Mr. Bittman works hard to concentrate on accessible, nonesoteric cooking while introducing a big though nonprogrammatic range of international possibilities". ( Online New York Times Book Review , December 12, 2007) Marking how mainstream vegetarian cooking has become, the next must–have for the vegetarian cook’s shelf comes from New York Times "Minimalist" chef Bittman, an avowed meat eater. And that ensures one of this massive compendium’s many attractions: a wealth of recipes that don’t scream "vegetarian" and plentiful guidelines to make cooking vegetarian as intuitive as cooking with meat. Like his now classic How to Cook Everything , this book opens with terrifically useful, straightforward discussions of essential ingredients, appliances and techniques, which Bittman builds on throughout in to–the–point sidebars and illustrated boxes. The recipes flow thick and fast in his theme–and–variations style: Green Tea with Udon Noodles is followed by concise instructions for making it 17 different ways, while Coconut Rice gets five additional takes and Kidney Beans with Apples and Sherry four; other lists (six Great Spreads for Bruschetta or Crostini, 10 Garnishes for Pozole with Mole) abound and inspire. New vegetarians and vegetarians cooking for omnivores will appreciate Bittman’s avoidance of faux meat products in favor of flavorful high–protein dishes like Braised Tofu in Caramel Sauce and Bechamel Burgers with Nuts. Even owners of the original book will find much new to savor while benefiting from Bittman’s remarkable ability to teach foundational skills and encourage innovation with them, which will help even longtime vegetarians freshen their repertory.
