With the constant array of health scares, many of us are more concerned with what we comsume, choosing to eat more vegetarian dishes or becoming vegetarians. This book offers over a thousand exciting vegetarian recipes from around the globe. There is a wide range of dishes, from traditional to modern, simple to complicated and from snacks to the main meal of the day.

Recipes have been arranged in vegetable varieties making it easy to look up your favourite vegetables or those at hand. Each chapter begins with an introduction to the vegetable variety including preparation, cooking methods and storage.

Creative dishes include: Leek and Stilton Eccle Cakes, Mushroom Pecan and Risotto Strudel, Gado Gado served in Iceberg Lettuce Cups, Vegetable Jambalaya with Roasted Chillies and Spiced Nuts, Summer Fruit Clafoutis and Brûlléed Lemon Risotto Cake. With such a selection of recipes there is no way anyone can call vegetarian food boring!
