Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison’s Kitchen
and wherever fine books
|I long wanted to assemble a collection of recipes that could answer the question, “What’s for dinner?” when it’s not chicken, meat or fish. I myself sometimes struggle to answer this question and know well that it can be tough to figure out what to eat when it’s not going to be meat. You can’t just answer “Sweet potatoes!” although sweet potatoes have been my dinner on many an occasion. (In fact, I admit to being a fan of the single vegetable dinner.)
This book points right to the center of the plate with 100-plus vegetarian main dishes assuming center stage. I see them mostly supper dishes, which I love because they’re friendly, relaxed, and have a quality of comfort and ease. Some, however, are more involved and should be considered company dinner dishes. Recipes range from supper sandwiches to tofu curries, to a wild mushroom tart to black-eyed peas with coriander and greens.
Wine suggestions accompany each recipe as well as tips for converting vegetarian recipes to vegan versions.
