Enter Kim O'Donnel. Unlike some other vegetarian cookbooks, this one recognizes that meatless food can -- and should! -- be just as hearty and tasty as meat-centric dishes. Kim states that she always prioritizes deliciousness over meatlessness; if it doesn't taste good, you won't find a recipe for it here.
The book is divided by season, and each section contains meal plans centering on a particular holiday or celebration (Thanksgiving, Election Day, St. Patrick's Day, Diwali, Fourth of July, etc.). I love cookbooks that divide recipes by season, which makes it easier to find a great dish that allows me to buy locally sourced, seasonal produce. Those who prefer traditional cookbook divisions (appetizers, soups, entrees, etc.) may be thrown by this set-up, but I think it makes intuitive sense for this book.
This cookbook also contains a helpful section in key ingredients. These feature both familiar and unfamiliar ingredients, as well as notes on the best brands to look for.
Now for the recipes. I have given a few a try thus far, and each has turned out exquisitely. The Delicata Boats with Red Rice Stuffing (from the Thanksgiving section) were flavorful and delicious. I also love the Sweet Potato Hummus recipe (I've made it twice thus far), and the Carrot-Fennel Soup is spot-on.Read more ›
