Grilled Vegetable Paella

 

How to Grill Vegetables by Steven RaichlenCelebrating all the ways to grill green, this mouthwatering, groundbreaking cookbook from “America’s master griller” (Esquire) shows how to bring live fire or wood smoke to every imaginable vegetable.

How to fire-blister tomatoes, cedar-plank eggplant, hay-smoke lettuce, spit-roast brussels sprouts on the stalk, grill corn five ways—even cook whole onions caveman-style in the embers. And how to put it all together through 115 inspired recipes.

Plus chapters on grilling breads, pizza, eggs, cheese, desserts and more. PS: While vegetables shine in every dish, this is not a strictly vegetarian cookbook—yes, there will be bacon.

Road Trip Cooking: The Best Recipes for Your Campfire, Stove or Barbecue by Arno & Mireille van Elst.

Road trips are the ultimate freedom: long roads, beautiful vistas, good conversations and singing along with the radio.

And when you choose to stop somewhere out in nature, you’ll want something tasty and nutritious to cook on your camping stove, campfire or portable barbecue. In Road Trip Cooking, Arno and Mireille of the Holy Kauw Company in the Netherlands take you along in their campervan. Their motto is simple: cooking and eating well is possible anytime, anywhere.

All recipes in this cookbook are simple to prepare and don’t require a well-equipped kitchen or well-stocked supermarket nearby. From the ultimate hangover breakfast and salad in a jar to campfire nachos and ‘apple pie to go’, these recipes make the most of classic and comfort-food dishes from around the world. Yet they only require some wood blocks, a few ingredients and a box of matches to prepare.

A Tart for May, Root, Stem, Leaf, Flower: How to Cook with Vegetables and Other Plants by Gill Meller.

Root, Stem, Leaf, Flower is a cookbook about plants—it’s about making the most of the land’s bounty in your everyday cooking.

Making small changes to the way we cook and eat can both lessen the impact we have on the environment and dramatically improve our health and wellbeing: good for us and for future generations to come. Making plants and vegetables the focus of your meals can improve your cooking exponentially—they provide a feast of flavours, colours and textures.

Root, Stem, Leaf, Flower is a true celebration of seasonal vegetables and fruit, packed with simple and surprisingly quick vegetarian recipes. With roots, we think of the crunch of carrots, celeriac, beetroot. From springtime stems like our beloved asparagus and rhubarb, through leaves of every hue (kale, radicchio, chard), when the blossoms become the fruits of autumn—apples, pears, plums—the food year is marked by growth, ripening and harvest.

Spicy Chilli French Bean Mapo Tofu, Asian Green: Everyday plant-based recipes inspired by the East by Ching-He Huang. Photography by Tamin Jones.

Asian Green
Asian food has always included a variety of meat and dairy-free recipes. Focusing entirely on these plant-based dishes, Ching-He Huang draws inspiration from across Asia to create simple, everyday, healthy home cooking that features protein-rich ingredients such as tofu, seitan, pulses, beans and grains.
The inspiration behind the book is Ching’s husband, Jamie. From birth, he suffered from asthma and eczema but three and a half years ago, three months after adopting a vegan diet, he was cured. Ching has always believed in the age-old Chinese maxim that “food is medicine”, and having experienced first-hand the transformation of her husband’s health, she firmly believes in the healing power of plants to reduce inflammation, to restore, nourish and replenish.
This book is full of inspiring, quick and simple recipes, perfect for vegetarians, vegans and people looking to reduce the amount of meat in their diets.
