Modern Flexitarian: Plant-inspired Recipes You Can Flex to Add Fish, Meat, or Dairy

DK. Jan. 2020. 256p. ISBN 9781465492463. $30. COOKING
Sometimes you feel like a vegetarian, sometimes you don’t. That’s the message from this new work by DK that provides a variety of primarily plant-based dishes covering breakfast through dinner to dessert. Recipes are easily modified, or, conversely, there are the options to add cheese, fish, or meat. These meals are straightforward and designed for home cooks, and include a variety of forms of protein, such as lentils, faro, and mung beans. As befits a DK book, each recipe is beautifully illustrated, with large color photos. One oddity, though, is that the vegan and carnivore modifications are included solely in small gray “post-it note” graphics at the bottom of the page. As these variations are seemingly the purpose of the book, it would have made sense to make them more visible.
VERDICT Offering a wide variety of delicious-sounding plant-based dishes with a strong international focus, this should be purchased where vegan and vegetarian works are popular.
