The Weekday Vegetarians: 100 Recipes and a Real-Life Plan for Eating Less Meat

Clarkson Potter. Sept. 2021. 256p. ISBN 9780593138748. $32.50. COOKING
A new cookbook about reducing a household’s meat consumption, by Bon Appétit “The Providers” columnist Rosenstrach (also the author of the cookbook Dinner: The Playbook and the popular blog Dinner: A Love Story). Recipes adhere to the author’s desire to create creative meals for people who may not have much time to spend in the kitchen. Overall, the book is geared more towards curious or reluctant vegetarians than established ones. Still, the enticing mix of casually elegant recipes (e.g., Rosenstrach’s Stewy Black Lentils with Chard and Feta; cauliflower cutlets with romesco sauce) will appeal to a variety of readers, from carnivores to vegans.
VERDICT Rosenstrach knows how to craft an excellent cookbook: recipes are beautifully photographed; instructions are clear; and options for ingredients allow for flexibility. This already best-selling volume will draw in Rosenstrach’s existing fans and find new ones.
