Review

"Molly's well-loved personal favorites offer a sound place for new vegetable cooks to begin enjoying the myriad delights that produce promises. And she's right—the willingness to focus on even a few details is the key to making food that will sparkle, shine, and delight those who partake." -- Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

About the Author

Now a household name, author and illustrator Mollie Katzen is widely credited with bringing vegetarian cooking into the mainstream. Born in Rochester, New York, she studied at the Eastman School of Music, Cornell University and the San Francisco Art Institute, where she received a B.F.A. in painting. Katzen published her first cookbook, The Moosewood Cookbook, in 1977, which showed millions of Americans that eating healthy doesn't have to mean sacrificing taste or style. Her classic illustrated cookbooks include The Enchanted Broccoli Forest, Still Life with Menu, and Mollie Katzen's Vegetable Heaven. Katzen has also published several award-winning cookbooks for children, and is currently a featured writer and illustrator for Children's Television Workshop On-Line, as well as Sesame Street Parent's Magazine.

Mollie has worked as a creative consultant for plant-based recipes and menus, most notably with Harvard University Dining Services, where she has served as a consultant on vegetarian cooking since 2003. She is a popular public speaker, specializing in culinary-medical conferences (in addition to other venues), helping to educate medical professionals on the links between food choices and health and prevention.

I had heard about this book on NPR and I browsed it at my local bookstore. I couldn't put it down. I bought it, not sure if I would keep it or give it to my intended recipient. In the 10 days that I had it before wrapping it on Christmas Day, I made 6 different dishes with it, each wonderful, easy, and delicious. The recipes are straightforward and yet come out very fancy, much more interesting than just a side of vegetables. Definitely worth the shelf space in my kitchen.

*As an update, a year later I still use this cookbook regularly, and several of the dishes have become weeknight regulars. It is the first book I recommend now to people who ask about getting more vegetables into their diet.

Quite simply, the best vegetable cookbook I have ever read. I am a practicing chef in the U.K., certainly not on a level with the author, but I hold my own. And the reciples and dishes presented here are, in a word, exquisite. In another word, delicious.

Since removing meat from my diet 10 years ago friends tell me I look much younger. I think books like this do a good job of reminding people that adopting a vegetable based diet is the simplest way to rpeserve our youth. I recently read another excellent book related to preserving youth, the hilarious Race You To THe Fountain of Youth. Race You to the Fountain of Youth: I'm Not Dead Yet (But parts of me are going fast)

As far as vegetable based recipes and diets go, "Vegetable Dishes I Can't Live Without" is the best. I've read perhaps 9 books on the subject, and this is the only one I don't hesitate to recommend.

The ever-popular vegetarian chef Katzen (Moosewood Cookbook) concentrates on her current favorites for another book of inventive, eclectic recipes, arranged alphabetically by main ingredient.

These include mostly side dishes, with some main dishes, and are a bit more slimmed down than previous books - without in any way skimping! No, these are recipes that are naturally healthful and slim, such as Oven Ratatouille, or Shiitake Slaw, or Southwest Summer Corn Hash (this was fine with frozen corn), or Beet-Avocado-Pear "Carpaccio," or Avocado-Strawberry Saladita, or Artichoke Heart and Spinach Gratin (no cream or milk), or Stir-Fried Eggplant with Ginger-Plum Sauce.

Tired of the same old winter vegetables? Try Roasted Root Vegetables with Pear Glaze, or Portobello Parmesan, or Mushroom-Stuffed Mushrooms with Wild Rice and Goat Cheese, or Sweet-and-Sour Red Cabbage with Berries (fresh, dried, or frozen).

Katzen's fans will welcome this book and newcomers will find lots of easy, inventive ways to brighten up the dinner table.

I've loved and used Mollie Katzen's books since I first received THE MOOSEWOOD COOKBOOK for a wedding gift 23 years ago. This newest one is another wonder. The writing is clear, thoughtful and fun, and the recipes are at once accessible and "out of this world", generally easy to make and yielding heavenly results. Just reading them makes me want to run out and shop and start cooking! Katzen's ART is also a miraculous combination of earthy and airy. From the lyrical, floral line drawing on the title page, to the spirited, happy designs by each recipe, to the gorgeous, exquisitely detailed studies throughout of the vegetables themselves, this book is a visual feast -- as soulful, alive and full of love as her edible works. Ms. Katzen is creative in the truest sense of the word, and this book will nourish and add beauty to all of our lives.

I was looking for creative ways to get more fresh veggies into our diet and this cookbook solved that problem. The recipes are easy to follow, ingredients are readily available seasonally, and the end results are delicious. The leek chips are fabulous, the shiitake slaw was wonderful, the spaghetti squash with carmelized onions was an unusual way to prepare spaghetti squash and got rave reviews from my family. We are shopping at our local farmers markets now for fresh produce and this book is a great asset to preparing those fresh veggies in a healthy, creative and delicious way!

I want to make and eat everything in this cookbook. We tried the recipe for grilled stuffed endive. It was delicious and easy to make. Each recipe has the simplicity and practicality you expect from Mollie Katzen, but also a lusciousness that comes from bringing out the best in each vegetable. It is mostly side dishes, but there are also risottos, pasta dishes and stews. A plate with two or more of these recipes on it would be pure heaven. If you love vegetables (or want to love vegetables) and need some variety in what you make, you will love this book!

I was looking for a book with vegetable recipes to add vegetables to my diet. I have tried a few recipes and I think I may not be used to having vegetables in my diet but I am going to continue to try. The pickling of the brocolli stems is too sweet for my taste. I will try it again by using the unseasoned rice vinegar. The other pickling recipes in the the book are also sweet. Many recipes require a food processor, I do not have one. Recipes require some unique foods that are not normally in my pantry. If you are looking for a vegatable cook book, this is a good beginning because it has all kinds of vegetables with a variety of ingredients. The book is printed without color or pictures of the final product, the book is also less expensive than some other books.
