A Fresh Guide to Eating Well with 700 Foolproof Recipes

The 700+ recipes in this comprehensive collection show you inventive and uncomplicated techniques for making boldly flavored main dishes, appetizers, soups and stews, pasta, pizzas, and more. Discover vegetarian makeovers of classic comfort food like Mushroom Bolognese (a combination of cremini and dried porcini mushrooms, soy sauce, and tomato paste replicate the meaty complexity of traditional Bolognese) and creative recipes like Sweet Potato and Swiss Chard Gratin (earthy Swiss chard sautéed with shallot, garlic, and butter is the perfect foil for the sweet spuds).

Whether you¿re a committed vegetarian or simply want to eat more vegetables and grains, this collection of re-imagined, meatless comfort food and all-new recipes inspired by ethnic cuisines will help you cook and eat well. Of the 709 total recipes, 300 are fast (start to finish in 45 minutes or less), 500 are gluten-free, and 250 are vegan.

We include cooking charts and resource materials such as All About pages for key ingredients (like hearty greens and fresh and dried chilis), Core Recipe Pages with simple but important recipes for staples like eggs and rice, easy-to-spot icons for gluten-free and vegan recipes, and hundreds of full- color recipe photos and step-by-step photos.

Recipes include:

Super Greens Soups with Lemon-Tarragon Cream, Roasted Poblano and Black Bean Enchiladas, Vegetable Pot Pie, Rustic Polenta Casserole with Mushrooms and Swiss Chard, Stuffed Eggplant with Bulgur, Pan-Seared Tempeh Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce, Vegetable Bibimap, Cabbage and Mushroom Potstickers, Butternut Squash Chili with Quinoa, Parsnip Hummus, and Millet Cakes with Spinach and Carrots

Information overload! This was a huge book (they advertise 700 recipes on the front cover) and was chock-full of information but I found it overwhelming. As well as the recipe, they also gave explanations of why the recipes work and how they came up with them. Nice pictures for most of the recipes. Many of the recipes were vegan and/or gluten free.

This is a solid vegetarian cookbook, but I'm disappointed. I expected more from America's Test Kitchen. They do not define vegetarian or vegan for those new to vegetarian cooking. Many of the recipes are repeats from prior books, compiled now in one vegetarian volume. In the introduction they say that they will tell you when an easy substitution can be made to make the dish vegan, but I found those sections to be strangely absent when I actually got to the recipes. There is an excessive amount of information and substitutions listed for gluten free items, but none for dairy or egg issues. Sadly disappointing for a cookbook I was so excited to read.

Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything is far more complete than America's Test Kitchen's "Complete" Vegetarian Cookbook.
