Everything you need to create mouth-watering vegetarian dishes can be found in Martha Rose Shulman's “The Simple Art of Vegetarian Cooking.” This recipe-packed teaching book by New York Times' Recipes for Health columnist is designed to give home cooks a plan (or “template”) for prepping and serving plant-based meals, minus the angst.

Inside, you’ll discover 125 recipes that help you learn the basics. For example, how to make a risotto, a frittata, a rice bowl, a pasta bowl, a soup base—into which you can toss any combination of seasonal vegetables and herbs. Shulman’s philosophy: Once you master the framework, you’ll find you have the skills to easily prepare a full range of delicious (and meatless) meals.

Perfect for busy home cooks who want a simple approach to creative vegetarian cuisine, this cookbook taps into the rising popularity of template cooking—and provides lots of room to grow.

SAVE THE DATE: Join Zester Daily contributor Martha Rose Shulman and celebrated pastry chef Jacquy Pfeiffer on Saturday, April 26, at Surfas in Los Angeles to learn the secrets to making classic French sweet tarts and healthy quiches using the same foolproof pastry. Click here for details!
