The Heart of the Plate: Vegetarian Recipes for a New Generation - Mollie Katzen

A good meal means lovingly prepared dishes that enliven the tongue, tickle the nose, and delight the belly. In short, a good meal strikes at The Heart of the Plate (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $34.99), but that doesn’t mean it has to be complicated. Unlike other cookbooks, Molly Katzen’s spread of flavorful yet simple dishes don’t require trips to specialty food stores or a search through online cupboards for unusual ingredients. Focusing on vegetarian and vegan cuisine from soups and stews to burgers, quiches, and pizza, Katzen’s recipes allow for ample leftovers—that is, if you can limit yourself to just one helping. The full-color photographs here make every dish irresistible. Try the tomato-coconut soup with a twist of Indian seasoning, a helping of savory crispy fried lemons , and the pomegranate tabbouleh for starters, and spend the rest of the holidays mixing and matching from these two hundred recipes—or choose from one of Katzen’s thirty-five menu suggestions.

The Duke's Table - Enrico Alliata

Italian food seems uniquely suited to the vegetarian diet because it utilizes garden-fresh ingredients to their fullest and most delicious potential. Sadly, vegetarian Italian cookbooks are hard to come by, which is why I was so excited about the release of The Duke's Table: The Complete Book of Vegetarian Italian Cooking. I didn't even know the half of it: this book was first published in 1930 by Enrico Alliata, Duke of Salaparuta,and is only now coming out in English. Alliata comes from a wine-making family dating back to the 18th century, and he advocated a vegetarian diet which he believed could prolong human life to 130 years. Additionally, this book is comprised of 1,030 imaginative, healthy recipes, so you get a big piece of history as well as an encyclopedia of Italian vegetarian cuisine.

Super Natural Every Day - Heidi Swanson

Food Blogger Heidi Swanson’s follow up to her first cookbook Super Natural Cooking is Super Natural Everyday which, much like the first book, offers beautiful photographs and easy to follow recipes but this time finds its niche in combining these things with a focus on her favorite quick and easy go-to recipes. Beginning with a quick guide on how Heidi understands ‘natural’ in regards to food she continues on to explain the ingredients she loves and how they lend themselves to healthier recipes. Despite following this mantra Heidi is never pretentious or preachy and her recipes run the gamut from lemon zested bulgar wheat and green lentil soup to buttermilk cake, and harissa ravioli.
