The Flexitarian Table

The Flexitarian Table by Peter Berley

Now in ebook for the first time, stylish, seasonal menus to satisfy vegetarians and nonvegetarians simultaneously, by a winner of the James Beard Award and the IACP Award. Today, more people than ever before are choosing to eat sustainably, electing to have vegetarian meals much of the time but sometimes small amounts of fish, chicken, and, more rarely, red meat. They're known as "flexitarians," a combination of the words "flexible" and "vegetarian." The Flexitarian Table is full of exciting menus guaranteed to please them-and everyone else at the table-without stressing out the cook. Drawing from decades of experience as a personal chef and caterer, Peter Berley provides lots of "convertible" meals featuring vegetable and meat versions of the same dish that can be prepared simultaneously without extra trouble, like Crispy Pressed Tofu or Chicken with Garlic and Mint. Others are hearty vegetarian dishes that ensure no one will miss meat, such as Saffron Lasagna with Vegetables and Gruyère. Meals centering around fish or chicken come with vegetable sides that double as mains. An extra bonus of this inclusive book: All of the 150 dishes can be mixed and matched.

Title details for The Heart of the Plate by Mollie Katzen - Available

The Heart of the Plate by Mollie Katzen

With The Moosewood Cookbook, Mollie Katzen changed the way a generation cooked and brought vegetarian cuisine into the mainstream. In The Heart of the Plate, she completely reinvents the vegetarian repertoire, unveiling a collection of beautiful, healthful, and unfussy dishes — her "absolutely most loved." Her new cuisine is light, sharp, simple, and modular; her inimitable voice is as personal, helpful, clear, and funny as ever. Whether it's a salad of kale and angel hair pasta with orange chili oil or a seasonal autumn lasagna, these dishes are celebrations of vegetables. They feature layered dishes that juxtapose colors and textures: orange rice with black beans, or tiny buttermilk corn cakes on a Peruvian potato stew. Suppers from the oven, like vegetable pizza and mushroom popover pie, are comforting but never stodgy. Burgers and savory pancakes — from eggplant Parmesan burgers to zucchini ricotta cloud cakes — make weeknight dinners fresh and exciting. "Optional Enhancements" allow cooks to customize every recipe. The Heart of the Plate is vibrantly illustrated with photographs and original watercolors by the author herself.

Vegan Holiday Cookbook

Vegan Holiday Cookbook by Kate Culpin

Are you vegan-and do you dread Thanksgiving because your family insists on a traditional turkey? Or are you a non-vegan family member welcoming everyone home for the Christmas holidays-and you're scratching your head over what to cook for your newly vegan son or daughter-in-law?

Holiday feasts have always been contentious for vegans and their non-vegan family members-when a supposedly welcoming season of loved ones dining together becomes divisive when animal products are cooked as part of tradition. Vegan Holiday Recipes addresses this issue head-on and unites family and friends, vegan or not, over simply delicious, easy, healthy, seasonal food.

Cocinar las setas

Cocinar las Setas por Vincent Allard

Recogidas durante un paseo, estudiadas a lo largo de una clase, cogidas en los sotobosques dorados del otoño las setas evocan a menudo sabores irresistibles y constituyen, para quienes saben cocinarlas, tesoros para el paladar ¿Quién no recuerda una sabrosa tortilla de boletos comestibles, un capón con morillas o una pepitoria forestal? El autor, excelente gourmet, cocinero reconocido y depositario de recetas a veces olvidadas, nos permite volver a descubrir, a través de numerosas recetas, las indiscutibles cualidades de este alimento fuera de lo común, que encantará a los amantes de la buena mesa y satisfará a los aficionados a una cocina dietética y equilibrada. A usted le toca cortar, limpiar y dorar los níscalos, pleurotos, trompetas de los muertos, etc. Recuerde que los champiñones no son las únicas setas de que disponemos: en los montes y bosques europeos hay más de 1.200 especies comestibles.
