As the CSA bounty starts rolling in, I'm finding that I have a limited repertoire for the same veggies day in and out. I figure that means I get to buy a cookbook (yay!), so I thought I'd ask for recommendations from AT-K and its readers.
Anyone have any vegetable-heavy cookbooks that they would recommend?
This is a great question. One of our favorite vegetable cookbooks and resources is Elizabeth Schneider's Vegetables from Amaranth to Zucchini: The Essential Reference
. It's laid out like an encyclopedia with plenty of pictures and background information on pretty much any vegetable you could imagine.
Chez Panisse Vegetables by Alice Waters is also a classic, with, of course, a lot of attention paid to seasonality.
Patricia Wells also has a new veggie-focused cookbook out that looks great: Vegetable Harvest: Vegetables at the Center of the Plate. Anything by Deborah Madison is good as well, especially the vegetarian The Greens Cookbook.
Those are our suggestions - enjoy your summer harvest! Anyone else have some cookbook ideas for LauraII?
