The VB6 Cookbook
More than 350 Recipes for Healthy Vegan Meals All Day and Delicious Flexitarian Dinners at Night
Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything
Mark Bittman devised an eating plan where he would eat a vegan diet until 6:00 PM. His dinners would include meat, which makes this cookbook offer recipes for everyone, not just strict vegans.
While I don't have an interest in his recipe for steak au poivre mushrooms, or pork, asparagus, and soba, the majority of the book is filled with vegetable based recipes that are the sort that I know I will love.
The photos of dishes such as sweetgreen quinoa salad, orange soup with black salsa, and eggplant meatballs, had me compiling a grocery list.
The recipes often include variations. For example, if you aren't a fan of eggplant, directions are given on switching the recipe to a mushroom, or cauliflower based recipe. Not only is that a great touch for the picky, but a boon for using what you have in the refrigerator, or what is seasonal, or on sale.
All in all, this is a wonderful cookbook for anyone who eats a plant based diet, or would like some help in creating tasty vegetable dishes. It also would meat a great gift for friends who eat meat.
