Try Mark Bitman's How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food

Posted on Feb 4, 2011 1:45:44 PM PST
Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone The ones I've tried out of this one have been good and one of my friends keeps posting pictures of awesome things from it.

I've got Bittman's How to cook everything (the non veg version) and it is more like How to cook ONE of everything. :) I use his book for reference as it has good advice on how to do stuff and what temps to use but I wasn't overjoyed with the recipes.

I love Bittman's recipes and use How to Cook Everything very frequently. Especially when I want something quick and easy, but flavorful, for that night's dinner when I have a particular main ingredient at hand. I love his minimalist style.

Thanks I'll check them out....

I'm not vegan a either, but I check vegan books out also. It's easy to convert vegan to vegetarian.
Thanks again everyone!

If you're interested in vegan cooking, my latest favorite vegan cookbook is Color Me Vegan by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. It is a gorgeous, colorful book with very delicious recipes. Practically every recipe sounds good and the ones I've made were outstanding! Color Me Vegan: Maximize Your Nutrient Intake and Optimize Your Health by Eating Antioxidant-Rich, Fiber-Packed, Color-Intense Meals That Taste Great

Hamlyn all colour 200 Veggie Feasts by Louise Pickford is our family's favorite vegetarian cookbook. At $7.99, it's a steal!

Another vote for "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" by Deborah Madison. It's a super cookbook.
I also like:
"Verdura: Vegetables Italian Style" by Viana La Place
"The Best of Lord Krishna's Cuisine" by Yamuna Devi
"The New Vegetarian" by Colin Spencer
"Food for the Vegetarian: Traditional Lebanese Recipes" by Aida Karaoglan
"Vegetarian Planet" by Didi Emmons

"Baba's Kitchen: Ukrainian Soul Food with Stories From the Village" has a lot of veggie recipes. Cabbage rolls, various veggie patties from legumes and mushrooms, veg casseroles. Probably stuff a lot of North Americans haven't tried before.

Hello All,

Do you like Indian food? If yes, there is a new book on Indian vegetarian cooking. It is stuff you can do in the microwave very easily. There are a lot of pretty easy things. This is a great one for someone who is new to cooking, or even new to Indian food.

There is good information on what material you will need to stock up on etc.

Please check this link -

The books i have tried, have not been that good, I think it works out better just to use any cookbook and convert it into a vegetarian dish.

I bought Easier Than a Steamed Turnip: Simple and Delicious Meatless Russian Recipes out of curiosity and everything I've tried so far came out pretty good. Wasn't too hard to follow, either - they provide detailed instructions.

I'm interested in Greek and Indian Vegetarian cookbooks. I'm not a vegetarian, and I love Greek food. I haveThe Greek Vegetarian: More Than 100 Recipes Inspired by the Traditional Dishes and Flavors of Greece and I know there are perhaps more traditional recipes out there. Can anyone offer me suggestions, and has anyone heard of Mediterranean Vegetable Cookery I have her book Greek Food which is not only a good cookbook, but a good read too.
I have some Madhur Jaffrey books and I would like to know if anyone can recommend any inexpensive titles by other authors. Anyone heard of Jack Santa Maria? I see here that he has both Indian and Greek vegetarian cookbooks. Thanks for your help.
