Veg-table: Recipes, Techniques, and Plant Science for Big-Flavored, Vegetable-Focused Meals

Award-winning food blogger Nik Sharma (The Flavor Equation) was raised in India, trained as a scientist in the United States, and spends "as much time gardening as I do cooking." His multicultural mindset, geeky background, and produce expertise inform Veg-table, a 100-odd-recipe collection suitable for vegetarians and carnivores alike. (A few recipes call for meat. Vegetarian recipes often include plant-based dairy alternatives for vegans.) Recipes are bundled into chapters by vegetable or vegetable family, and tend toward comfort offerings (delectable Roasted Garlic + Chickpea Soup, ambrosial Eggplant in Tomato Curry) and seriously hunger-slaking fare (hearty Cauliflower Bolognese, momentous Lentil Lasagna). The mouthwatering color photos--of vegetables in their natural glory, of the finished dishes they create--were taken by the multitalented Sharma himself. --Nell Beram, author and freelance writer
