River Cottage Veg Every Day! Hardback
Winner of Best Cookbook at the Observer Food Monthly Awards Why don't we eat more veg?
They're healthy, cost-effective and, above all, delicious.
Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall believes that it is time to put this to rights, as he explains in this brilliant new book.
He's come up with an abundance of veg-tastic recipes, including a warm salad of grilled courgettes, lemon, garlic, mint and mozzarella, a winter giant couscous salad with herbs and walnuts, radishes with butter and salt, lemony guacamole, linguine with mint and almond pesto and cherry tomatoes, baby carrot risotto, new potato gnocchi, a summer stir-fry with green veg, ginger, garlic and sesame, a winter stir-fry with Brussels sprouts, shiitake mushrooms and five-spice, a cheesy tomato tart, a spring onion gallette, roast jacket chips with merguez spices and spiced yoghurt, curried bubble and squeak, scrambled eggs and asparagus with lemon, tomato gazpacho, pea and parsley soup, roast squash wedges, baba ganoush, beetroot houmous, spinach pasties and barbecued corn on the cob.
With over 200 recipes and vibrant photography from Simon Wheeler, River Cottage Veg Every Day is a timely eulogy to the glorious green stuff.

Review by sanddancer
I don't normally watch cookery shows and I don't normally buy cook books, but I watched one episode of River Cottage Vegetables Every Day and was so inspired that I had to buy the book too. The recipes are probably available on the Channel 4 website, but the book was still well worth buying as it is a gorgeous book beautiful photography that is sure to make you feel hungry.The aim of the book is not to convert everyone to vegetarianism (and Hugh himself is a committed carnivore) but to encourage people to eat more vegetables and to have a few meat and fish free days a week, as it is both healthier and better for the environment. The book is divided into sections such as Comfort Food and Feasts, Hearty Salads, Soups, Side Dish, Bready Things and Tapas. The Bready Things chapter contains things that are incredibly simple to make, but provides vital inspiration for sandwiches and snacks without having to resort to boring veggie standards of cheese and pickle or egg and cress. The recipes are always easy to follow and he isn't too precious about things, often saying things are optional or giving other alternatives.
