The only vegetables book you’ll ever need reveals hundreds of ways to cook nearly every vegetable under the sun.

We’re all looking for interesting, achievable ways to enjoy vegetables more often. This must-have addition to your cookbook shelf has more than 700 kitchen-tested recipes that hit that mark. Sure, you’ll learn nearly 40 ways to cook potatoes and 30 ways with broccoli, America’s favorite veggies. But you’ll also learn how to make a salad with roasted radishes and their peppery leaves; how to char avocados in a skillet to use in Crispy Skillet Turkey Burgers; and how to turn sunchokes into a chowder and kale into a Super Slaw for Salmon Tacos. Every chapter, from Artichokes to Zucchini, includes shopping, storage, seasonality, and prep pointers and techniques, including hundreds of step-by-step photographs and illustrations, gorgeous watercolor illustrations, and full-color recipe photography.

The inspirational, modern recipes showcase vegetables’ versatility in everything from sides to mains: You’ll discover how to make the perfect grilled corn–and also how to transform it into a deliciously creamy pasta sauce with ricotta and basil. Onions are grilled, caramelized, glazed, and pickled–and also cooked into the Middle Eastern pilaf Mujaddara. Cauliflower is grilled as steaks, fried Buffalo-style, and pot-roasted whole with a robust tomato sauce. Sweet potatoes are mashed and baked more than a dozen ways, plus turned into a salad, a soup, tacos, and a gratin. All along the way we share loads of invaluable kitchen tips and insights from our test cooks, making it easy–and irresistibly tempting–to eat more veggies every day.

Love Vegetables? Don’t Really Love Them but Want to? This Book is a Must Have! When I saw this Cooks illustrated book pop up on my list I had to have it. I have a large collection of cookbooks and within that collection about 40 of them are vegetable cookbooks.I was expecting that this book would have the usual Cooks Illustrated magazine style recipes, with a couple of pages devoted to each recipe with long explanations of how they came to the end result. I enjoy that but didn’t really want a whole book of it. I was extremely pleased when I received this book…

Unfortunately, small pale type used Just received this book today. While I am generally a fan of Cook’s Illustrated I was disappointed to see that they opted for quite small and pale type in order to include the 700+ recipes promised within. And some paragraphs are italicized which makes the type even paler and harder to read. Deciding how useful this book will be to us when it is such a challenge to read!

Print size is so small that it’s difficult to use as a cook book I bought this book with plans to try new vegetables and ways to cook familiar ones. The book is full of info and recipes, my problem is that the print is so small that it is difficult to have the book on the counter and actually keep track of the recipe. Readers on, readers off. I am going to have to do some thinking about whether to keep or return.
