"You don't need to be a vegetarian to eat like one! With over 100 recipes, the New York Times bestselling author of Dinner: A Love Story and her family adopt a "weekday vegetarian" mentality. In her newest cookbook, creator of the beloved website Dinner: A Love Story and Cup of Jo columnist Jenny Rosenstrach writes about being a "weekday vegetarian," i.e. eating a vegetable-based diet during the week and saving meaty splurges for the weekend. One day, it hit Rosenstrach like a lightning bolt: She and her family needed to eat less meat--for their health and for the greater good of the environment. The Weekday Vegetarians shows readers how she got her family on board with meat-free meals. She uses "Hooks" that make any vegetarian dish irresistible--like spiced Crispy Chickpeas, Pizza Dough Croutons, and Sweet Chili Glaze; "Next-Level Sauces" like Vegan Caesar, Shakedown Pesto, and Yogurt-Harissa; and "Side Dishes That Make Everything Special" like Yogurt Flatbread. Organized by meal type, The Weekday Vegetarians offers one hundred recipes like Pizza Salad with White Beans in the Bowls & Salads chapter, Cauliflower Cutlets with Ranch Dressing in the chapter Skillet Mains, and Squash and Black Bean Tacos in the Tacos & Tortillas chapter, with excellent and practical tips, and food for thought written in her engaging, witty, and relatable voice. And who knows--maybe like Jenny's family, the more you practice being "weekday vegetarians," the more you will notice plant-based eating creeping into your weekends!"-- Provided by publisher.

The Weekday Vegetarians : 100 Recipes and a Real-Life Plan for Eating Less Meat: a Cookbook
(c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
"With a little planning... it's possible to cut back on meat and not eat cornflakes every night," writes Dinner: A Love Story blogger Rosenstrach (How to Celebrate Everything) in this inviting guide to going meatless five nights a week. Most of her riffable recipes come in "the format of a pizza, bowl, taco, pasta, salad, sandwich, or soup--all vehicles for dishes I know my family will like," and each is prefaced with a mix-and-match meal chart organized around various veggies. Canned beans, store-bought pizza dough, and packaged corn tortillas and cooked beets are staples she employs to keep cooking times in check. Of her "Seven Rules to Remember When Going Vegetarian," the most strategic is the use of "hooks" to enhance what's on the plate; this can be warm yogurt flatbread to accompany curried red lentils or Rosenstrach's oregano and olive oil pizza dressing for topping salads and savory pies. Recipes are often accompanied by tips and tricks, such as adding a quick side of marinated beans to her Greenest Pasta "if you are missing a protein hit," or stirring porcini powder into fried rice for some "meatiness." This mightily proves that vegetarian cooking is not only approachable, but fun. (Aug.)
