100 Best Vegetarian Recipes

by Carol Gelles


More than a decade ago, Carol Gelles won the Julia Child and James Beard Awards for her classic book, 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes—a book that became an indispensible reference in the world of vegetarian cooking. Now, with 100 Best Vegetarian Recipes, Gelles has updated the recipes from 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes and compiled her top 100 favorites—what she considers to be the best of the best in vegetarian cuisine.

100 Best Vegetarian Recipes is perfect for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Gelles' recipes include comfort food classics like Macaroni and Three Cheeses and French Onion Soup, as well as international favorites like Spanakopita, Mini Vegetable Dumplings with Asian Dipping Sauce, and Baba Ghanauslb Home cooks will learn how to manage their time in the kitchen with "make ahead" information, and Gelles provides categories with all recipes for all followers of a vegetarian diet, including vegans:

  • Lacto-Ovo—Do not eat meat, but do eat eggs and dairy products.
  • Lacto—Do not eat meat or eggs, but do eat dairy products.
  • Vegan or Strict Vegetarian—Do not eat meat, dairy products, or eggs, and may or may not eat animal byproducts.
  • Vegan Variation—A vegan variation suitable for vegans described below the main recipe.
  • Make-Ahead—Can be prepared ahead of serving time.

Filled with gorgeous color photography throughout, as well as themed menus and tips on making vegetarian meals and leading a meat-free lifestyle, 100 Best Vegetarian Recipes is the little vegetarian book guaranteed to provide fresh, delectable dishes for any occasion.
