"Leiths Vegetable Bible" offers almost 1,000 delicious vegetarian recipes, ranging from the simple to the sophisticated. Included are recipes for snacks, salads, desserts and baking, as well as classic slow-cooked dishes and modern main courses that can be prepared in minutes. With everything from avocado and rocket gazpacho, Jamaican black bean pot and Swiss chard quiche to fig crumble cake, strawberry tequila sorbet and rich chocolate peach cake, this mighty cookbook covers all culinary eventualities. With the rise of box schemes and farmer's markets, more people are cooking creatively with vegetables than ever before. "Leiths Vegetable Bible" is the perfect companion not just for vegetarians but for anyone who wants to give vegetables a central role in the kitchen.
This is a truly brilliant cookbook. There are recipes from almost every continent (except Antartica!) and they all work. Every time.
If you can think of something you'd like to cook, there'll be a recipe in here for that - risotto, jambalaya, leek and stilton pie, Thai curry, huevos rancheros. All clearly written and easy to follow.
The index is very comprehensive, so if you have random things left over in the fridge, you can look them up and find a recipe to try - like butternut squash and butterbean bake, which has become one of our favourites.
There are also a number of basic recipes for bread, sauces, dips, pastry etc that I've found helpful on many occasions.
Seriously the best veggie cookbook we own, and we own a lot!
