Can You Suggest Some Cookbooks with Great Vegetable Recipes?
Q: Since it’s about to be summer, we’d like to take advantage of fresh, seasonal produce and cook more vegetable dishes at home. The problem is we’re not too inspired by and not very creative with vegetables. What cookbooks do you recommend that really hit it out of the park with vegetable recipes?
We’re not looking for vegetarian/vegan cookbooks, per se. We’re really looking for a book that uses vegetables in exciting ways (i.e., not another salad) and don’t rely too much on frying. Are we asking for too much?

Readers, what are your favorite cookbooks where vegetables shine?
