*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.
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.
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.
