"Jamie Oliver has written a long line of practical home cookbooks. But Ultimate Veg
may be the most exciting book of this twenty-year career.
This collection of a hundred or so vegetarian recipes is packed with fresh, tasty, and visually enticing food. Oliver draws on a host of flavors and traditions to offer a remarkable range of weeknight meals that will appeal to even the most reluctant vegetable eaters. There will be no complaints that ""this is boring"" when you serve the likes of
- caulflower tikka masala
- Yemeni-style pancakes with smoky, blackened eggplant
- fusilli with sweet yellow pepper sauce and pistachios
- grape and radicchio salad with pine nuts and rosemary
- kimchi toasted cheese sandwich
Nimble cooks will happily find an abundance of flavor ideas to borrow (roasted sweet potatoes paired with an apple and mint salsa) as well as deft techniques to run with (capers fried until crispy). For cooks particularly concerned with nutritional issues, each recipe comes with a breakdown of its calores, fat and saturated fat content, protein, carbs, sugars, salt, and fiber levels.
