Quadrille Publishing. May 2020. 160p. ISBN 9781787134270. $22.99. COOKING
Taylor (The Ultimate Wood-Fired Oven Cookbook) shows that there are more options to grilling vegetables than just corn-on-the-cob as illustrated in this innovative resource. Presented are over 70 recipes for vegetarian barbeque fans; even nonvegetarians can appreciate these recipes that could be provided as accompaniments to traditional chicken and beef dishes. After a brief chapter on equipment and techniques, a section on “Kebabs” features recipes using such various ingredients as tofu, potatoes, asparagus, plantain, and eggplant. Other chapters cover burgers, fritters, salads, stuffed vegetables, and soups. The recipes are easy to follow and icons indicate whether they can be made on a grill, griddle pan, or frying pan. Some meals, like hasselback potatoes with salsa verde dressing, can even be prepared in the oven. Every recipe in this attractive book is accompanied by a full-page color photograph.
VERDICT A welcome addition to the BBQ library and one that will be of interest to vegetarians, or anyone looking for more plant-based recipes.
