River Cottage Veg: 200 Inspired Vegetable Recipes

River Cottage Veg
200 Inspired Vegetable Recipes
by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall

Trade Paperback, 416 pages

A comprehensive collection of 200+ recipes that embrace vegetarian cuisine as the centerpiece of a meal, from the leading food authority behind the critically acclaimed River Cottage series.

I absolutely love the River Cottage series on television, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is indeed a pioneer in cooking and farming close to nature and sharing his techniques and findings with the world in a positive, encouraging and inviting way.

So of course I knew that this wouldn't be just another vegetarian cookbook. Almost every recipe in the book is so different than I have seen before and yet just make sense. They are the kind of delicious, intriguing and inviting dishes that make you forget about meat. Which are exactly the kind of veggie dishes that my husband, the carnivore, loves most.

All seasons are covered in this cookbook and most of the vegetarian recipes are easily converted to vegan, if you wish. 

Contents Include:
Introduction
Comfort food & feasts
Hearty salads
Raw assemblies
Hefty Soups
Bready things
Pantry suppers
Pasta & rice 
Meze & tapas
Roast, grill & broil
Side dishes
Pantry
Veg on the go 

These recipes are fun and inventive and you will find yourself wanting to try all of them, I guarantee. And your carnivores will find themselves immensely satisfied. ☺
