Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindy from Unique and delicious vegetarian recipes! This is my go-to book for vegetarian recipes. I love how the book is separated by the different types of vegetables.
I've cooked a few recipes from it and I was really impressed with how they turned out. My favourites have been the black pepper tofu, mushroom lasagna and the yogurt flatbreads with mushroom ragu. The recipes often have many ingredients but usually the techniques to cook them are very straight forward and easy to make. I highly recommend this book!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Melissa from Very nice This is a very nice cookbook with beautiful photos illustrating the recipes. Delicious recipes that are good to impress. Rated 5 out of 5 by Azadeh from Stunning You know what's ridiculous? I didn't even buy this book to cook what's in it - I bought it because the photography is absolutely breathtaking and it's a gorgeous coffee table book. One of these days I will cook something out of the book, I will. Highly recommend, even for a novice cooker, but especially for an accomplished foodie.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ning from delicious Everything is explained in details Date published: Rated 2 out of 5 by Lynne from Not my favourite Although this is a beautiful book, I did not care for it. I returned it Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by Cait from Favourite Cookbook Not only is this cookbook beautiful in presentation, the recipes are delicious. I have owned this cookbook for a year now and haven't found a recipe I don't like. Some ingredients can be a bit hard to find but their worth it. And then some recipes call for such normal ingredients, you'll be surprised how delicious they can be.
All in all, you can't go wrong with this cookbook, whether you're a vegetarian or not. Rated 5 out of 5 by Mary from Great book great vegetarian recipes I bought this book a month ago and I find it beautiful in its layout. Written by a well known cook, the book is indeed a professional cook book that offers variety to a vegetarian diet with easy and delicious dishes.
I hope more recipe books come out of this fantastic mind - have tried several. Very doable, easy to follow. Rated 5 out of 5 by KMT from Fantastic! I have tried several recipes from this cookbook and each one has tasted great. Rated 5 out of 5 by catherine c from Brilhante Having read Yotam Ottolenghi's columns in The Guardian's website and being mentioned by David Lebovitz on his website, I decided to purchase this book as I am constantly looking for new vegetarian cookbooks to vary my repertoire in cooking vegetables.
Being Malaysian, I was actually hoping to learn how to cook yummy veggie dishes in Middle Eastern style. Ottolenghi also like to use other Asian ingredients like Soba noodles, sambal oelek, tofu and edamame beans. His recipes are clearly written and uses ingredients that result in delightful vegetarian dishes which chapters include pulses, cereals, pasta, polenta, couscous and a final chapter on fruit with cheese that are packed with flavours often using a variety of fresh herbs and spices.

I'd highly recommend this book for those who are looking for a fresh approach to cooking vegetarian dishes. Extra Content. From the Author A vegetarian cookbook from the author of Jerusalem Cookbook and other Ottolenghi cookbooks: A must-have collection of vegetarian recipes from Yotam Ottolenghi featuring exciting flavors and fresh combinations that will become mainstays for readers and eaters looking for a brilliant take on vegetables.
Mastering the art of French cooking the Yotam Ottolenghi way: One of the most exciting talents in the cooking world, Yotam Ottolenghi's food inspiration comes from his Cordon Bleu training, Mediterranean background, and his unapologetic love of ingredients.
My approach can be the opposite to traditional French cooking, where everything is a little bit uniform and you work hard to process a sauce into the most fine and homogenous thing. I go the other way and use spices, herbs and other ingredients to create a sense of surprise. The Plenty cookbook: Plenty is the cookbook that launched Yotam Ottolenghi from a fabulous chef, London restaurant owner, and British newspaper columnist to an international food celebrity. In the Plenty cookbook, Yotam puts a spotlight on vegetarian restaurant-caliber recipes that every home cook can make.
A vibrant photo accompanies every recipe in this visually stunning Ottolenghi cookbook.
