The Heart of the Plate:Vegetarian Recipes for a New Generation

Mollie Katzen

With her groundbreaking The Moosewood Cookbook (1977), Mollie Katzen changed the way a generation cooked and brought vegetarian cuisine into the mainstream. In The Heart of the Plate, she presents 250 new light and simple dishes that emphasize vegetables and their natural flavors, rather than served with butter, cream, and cheese (more than half of the recipes are vegan). Inventive soups, salads, stews, suppers, and desserts abound as Katzen once again reminds us that fresh vegetables can be inspirational as well as nutritional.
