The ultimate one-stop vegetarian cookbook-from the author of the classic How to Cook Everything Hailed as "a more hip Joy of Cooking" by the Washington Post, Mark Bittman's award-winning book How to Cook Everything has become the bible for a new generation of home cooks, and the series has more than 1 million copies in print.

Now, with How to Cook Everything: Vegetarian , Bittman has written the definitive guide to meatless meals-a book that will appeal to everyone who wants to cook simple but delicious meatless dishes, from health-conscious omnivores to passionate vegetarians. How to Cook Everything: Vegetarian includes more than 2,000 recipes and variations-far more than any other vegetarian cookbook.

As always, Bittman's recipes are refreshingly straightforward, resolutely unfussy, and unfailingly delicious-producing dishes that home cooks can prepare with ease and serve with confidence.

The book covers the whole spectrum of meatless cooking-including salads, soups, eggs and dairy, vegetables and fruit, pasta, grains, legumes, tofu and other meat substitutes, breads, condiments, desserts, and beverages. Special icons identify recipes that can be made in 30 minutes or less and in advance, as well as those that are vegan.

Illustrated throughout with handsome line illustrations and brimming with Bittman's lucid, opinionated advice on everything from selecting vegetables to preparing pad Thai, How to Cook Everything: Vegetarian truly makes meatless cooking more accessible than ever.

Review by

This is the best cookbook I've ever seen. It would be especially useful for those who are just starting to cook, and those who need to break free from the same old meat and potatoes. The author provides a wealth of information about each ingredient, from artichokes to zucchini. The recipes are taken from many cultures. The author provides ideas for substitutions, so each dish can be made in many ways.

This book has become nearly indispensable in my kitchen. It offers easy ways to cook whole foods that would otherwise seem scary to try. Unlike some other cookbooks, every dish turns out every time. The auuthor includes the approximate time involved for each dish, which is great when planning week-nite meals. I love love love this cookbook.

Review by

Wonderful cook book. Recipes are great and easy to follow.

Review by

This is my new bible.The book doesn't feel like a specifically vegetarian cookbook, but instead like a giant cookbook where none of the recipes have dead animals in them. The only problem I have is that I start reading the book, and then hours later realize that I haven't made dinner yet.

Review by

Great cook book for the beginner or the well-versed cook. Lots of deceptively easy recipes that pack plenty of flavor. I use it to locate recipes for those veggies I pick up fresh at the farmer's market.
