Nik Sharma, blogger at A Brown Table, Serious Eats columnist, and author of the bestselling cookbooks The Flavor Equation and Season, brings us his most cookable collection of recipes yet in Veg-Table.
Vegetable-focused recipes are organized into chapter by plant family, with storage, buying, and cooking methods for all. Here is a technique-focused repertoire for weeknight mains for cooks of all skill levels looking to add more delicious and satisfying vegetable dishes to their diet. Combining the scientific underpinnings of The Flavor Equation with the inviting and personal recipes of Season, this book features more than fifty vegetables, revealing their origins, biology, and unique characteristics and resulting in a recipe collection of flavours and techniques that are tried, true, and perfected by rigorous testing and a deep scientific lens.
Veg-Table includes Sharma’s first-ever pasta recipes published in a cookbook: Pasta with Broccoli Miso Sauce, Shallot and Spicy Mushroom Pasta, and more. And vegetable-focused doesn’t mean strictly vegetarian; bring plants and meat together with delicious recipes like Chicken Katsu with Poppy Seed Coleslaw. A wide variety of hot and cold soups, salads, sides, sauces, and rice-, egg-, and bean-based dishes round out this collection. (more…)
