"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.
