Cookbooks for a Veg-centric Summer

Make vegetables the star of the show this summer with this quartet of inspiring veg-based recipe books, authored by writers all with slightly different approaches, but all united by a love of good food. This is the kind of vegetarian cuisine everyone will love.

The Vegetarian Kitchen

The Vegetarian Kitchen

By Prue Leith and Peta Leith

Prue Leith and niece Peta (a longtime vegetarian) have written a user-friendly book filled with gorgeous recipes. Cooks new to meat-free eating, who need advice on how to plan a meal without a meaty centerpiece, or how to use vegan ingredients, will find its approach particularly useful. Peta trained as a patisserie chef, and the cakes and puddings are a highlight, yet pleasingly ‘uncheffy’ to make.

Vegan(ish)

Vegan(ish)

By Jack Monroe

Jack Monroe is an outspoken advocate of good, nourishing, affordable food for all, and writes sensibly and approachably on vegan food and diets, covering everything from ingredients and nutrition to essential kitchen equipment. Her no-nonsense approach extends to her recipes too. Based on inexpensive, easy-to-find ingredients, they have enough creative flair to enthuse and entice.

Almost Vegetarian Cookbook

Almost Vegetarian Cookbook

By Josceline Dimbleby

The Almost Vegetarian Cookbook is for the food lover who enjoys making the most of vegetables without excluding meat from the table. Josceline Dimbleby provides veggie-heavy recipes with the occasional fish and chicken meal, offering the best of both worlds so that you can enjoy the nutritious benefits of a diet lacking in animal fat and share easy, worry-free meals.

The Forest Feast Mediterranean

The Forest Feast Mediterranean

By Erin Gleeson

The California-based author, a creator of magical feasts, took herself and her family on an extended journey around the coastal cities of France, Italy, Spain, and Portgual, seeking culinary inspiration. Her colorful, creative (but disarmingly simple) veggie recipes are redolent of summer in the Med. Evocative location photography and artful watercolor drawings complete the package.

Midweek Beef Stir-Fry

Reuben at Home

Reuben Riffel

(1)

"This is a different approach to making stir-fry. I don’t like overcooked beef in a stir-fry and this one tastes great, with meat cooked the way you like it. I love stir-fries because I’ve always loved vegetables. And this way, you get to eat your favourite veggies in a crunchy state" Reuben Riffel
