The Vegetarian Flavor Bible

Two of the best ways to fight climate change at home eating more plants and wasting less food can be accomplished in the kitchen. Enter The Vegetarian Flavor Bible: The Essential Guide to Culinary Creativity With Vegetables, Fruits, Legumes, Nuts, Seeds, and More. The much-lauded 2014 book by Karen Page helps you learn to do both. It also makes cooking more fun, even though there isn't a recipe in sight. The book lists hundreds of ingredients, along with basic information on flavor and usage. An alphabetical list follows with pleasing flavor pairings, common foods and cuisines that use the ingredient, and more. The Bible helps cooks of all levels use what they have wisely. It's as helpful to novices as it is to advanced home cooks stuck in a culinary rut. It can also embolden farmers-market-goers: Stinging nettles and three-foot-long burdock roots seem more approachable when considered alongside a page of approachable pairings. We also recommend the author's other terrific books in this series:
