For years, chef and cookbook author Alice Hart has been crafting—and sharing—“recipes for giving pleasure.” Now, Good Veg showcases ebullient vegetables, fruits, and grains—in inventive, reliable dishes to sustain you (and family and friends) all day, through every season. Hart’s food surprises and thrills through contrasts (think crisp and soft, sweet and sour, chile heat and refreshing herb):

  • Roasted Carrot Soup with Flatbread Ribbons
  • Chickpea Crepes with Wild Garlic
  • Brown Rice Bibimbap Bowls with Smoky Peppers
  • Toasted Marzipan Ice Cream

Plus, her thoughtfully organized chapters help you find just the right dish:
Mornings • Grazing • Quick • Thrifty • Gatherings • Grains • Raw-ish • Afters • Pantry

Good Veg by Alice Hart is one of the best vegetarian cookbooks I've come across in a long while!  The recipes are creative, tasty and the photography in this book is out of this world.  

I really liked the way Ms. Hart organized her cookbook. The recipes flow well and the categories she highlights make it easy to find the  right recipe for the right occasion.  

To highlight some of the recipes that drew my interest  (in addition to the ones noted in the Synopsis section) ~ 

Squash and Sesame Fritters

Eggplant and Sweet Potato Lasagna with Walnuts (YUM!)

Greek Coddled Eggs

A Summer Salad (can't wait to try this one!)

Cashew and Coconut Bites 

Please don't even get me started on the sumptuous and heavenly desserts! 😍

I started out being a bit intimidated by this cookbook but after reading Good Veg there are plenty of recipes for the novice and the master cook. The recipes are a celebration of flavors and textures that are as pleasing to the eye as well as the taste buds. Try them out and enjoy!
