The Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet

Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet by Nava Atlas250 Simple Recipes and Dozens of Healthy Menus for Eating Well Every Day


This bountiful collection of recipes goes beyond “quick and easy” by showing the busy cook how to keep meal preparation simple. Focusing on whole foods and fresh produce, great meals are pared down to the essential. With this book on hand, take-out will be far less tempting!

Here are simple recipes for soups, salads, pasta entrées, plant-based proteins (tofu, tempeh, and seitan), vegetable dishes, snacks, dips, and sauces, fruity desserts and more. And none use more than 5 ingredients (not including water, salt, and pepper). Now there’s just no excuse for not eating healthfully every day, at every meal. Published by Clarkson Potter.
