This cookbook has simple recipes using seasonal vegetables that are truly delicious. Most have vegan or gluten-free modifications if they aren't already such as presented. Variations on hummus, pesto, guacamole, and salsa promise to keep dinners interesting and different. I'm buying this! I love it. 5 stars.

    I know this is a cookbook, so not really counting towards my "reading goals" but I love it too much to not give it a 5 star on here too. Delicious, helpful recipes with so much flavour. And good for you too! My new favourite kitchen tool!

    This has to be one of the most beautifully-designed and photographed cookbooks I've ever seen -- and that's pretty much the only reason I look at cookbooks.

    Beautiful pictures and recipes! Somehow, the way the book was organized wasn't my favorite (I prefer "breakfast" "lunch" "dinner" recipes lumped together instead of by ingredient) but overall, a very enjoyable cookbook!

    I love how this book is set up by ingredient instead of meal type. It contains some of the most beautiful food photography and extremely simple ways to serve whatever vegetable you happen to have on hand. Looking forward to using this gorgeous book! :)

    There are interesting recipes in this book for vegetables that I love to eat. Most of the recipes are straightforward enough for me to try. There were a few that were out of my league!

    Love this author, her recipes and her website. This cookbook as well as Love and Lemons Everyday are filled with recipes I use regularly. Layed out well, easy to read and beautiful photos for every dish. And love that the author gives the option of substituted ingredients. I haven't had a fail yet. This author is my go-to for yummy plant based recipes. Feeling fallish today and made the butternut squash soup, savory cornbread muffins and chocolate chip sea salt cookies. (So, so yum!).

    Delicious and delightful. Read through the entire cookbook over a span of a few weeks, but will be cooking from it for months and years to come. Highly recommended for vegetarians, vegans, and honestly anyone who appreciates fresh, flavorful food with minimal fuss and maximum flavor.

    This is another beautiful cookbook! The photography is so bright and colorful, but simple and clean too. I love how each recipe has adaptations to make it vegan or gluten-free, and showcases so many delicious and delightful ways to use different vegetables throughout their seasons!

    Jeanine Donofrio is a talented food photographer but most of her recipes feel like something that an amateur would come up with when trying to use up what's in the fridge for a last minute dinner. The dishes are poorly proportioned and bland, and I usually still feel hungry after eating a serving of whatever she is cooking. She could have spent more time in recipe development but it seems the priority here was just to create a visual work of art.

    Beautiful, inspiring photos with simple, easy to follow recipes. I love this book and have a dozen or so recipes marked to try. This is a great book for new cooks as well as those with experience who can use an occasional shake-up in their routine.

    First let me start by saying the cover is beautiful. Now as far as the recipes they are great if you're looking for creative ways to eat more veggies. Most of recipes are vegetarian, but many of dishes can be added as a side dish for omnivores and can easily be made vegan.

    I thought the cookbook was beautiful to look at but found that the recipes didn't appeal to me for some reason.

    Sections: Apples, Artichokes, Asparagus, Avocados, Berries, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage & Chicories, Carrots, Cauliflower, Citrus, Corn, Cucumber, Eggplant, Greens, Herbs, Mushrooms, Onions, Peas, Peppers, Potatoes, Root Veggies, Stone Fruits, Tomatoes, Winter Squash, Zucchini & Summer Squash — definitely not the typical breakdown according to course.

Pros: Someone had fun designing this cookbook. It's colorful and playful with avant garde flair, and there are photos for every single recipe. If you only cook recipes for which there is a photo, you'll have plenty to choose from. There are modifications suggested for vegan and gluten-free diets for most recipes. Cons: Why three stars? There were lots of good things about this cookbook, but I wasn't totally vibing with the layout, swooning over the recipes, or digging the blown-out/faded photography. A creature of habit, I found the section breakdown to be counterintuitive and would have preferred for all breakfasts to be together, desserts, salads, etc. No, thank you: No bad recipes to report! More, please: Cucumber, basil, and watermelon salad (Peanuts, basil, cucumber, watermelon, cilantro, mango ... an unexpected combination — but what's not to love?); corn, tomato, an mozzarella salad (Another solid salad taking advantage of the flavors of summer.); carrot gazpacho with lemongrass (An entrancingly orange chilled summer soup with about 10 minutes of prep involved.)

    Our other favorite cookbook of 2018. It's exclusively vegetarian with vegan options, so it speaks to my veggie-infused childhood. No real text to speak of, so come prepared to cook. It's organized by type of veggie or fruit, with a range of recipes for each; I'm not *sure* that's the best way to do things, as it's sometimes hard to find recipes we want, and the index doesn't include everything -- we bought edamame, for instance, then had to go through the entire cookbook to find the recipe we we Our other favorite cookbook of 2018.

There's also a random over-reliance on chipotles in adobe sauce, which, delicious! But Cookie and Kate's enchilada sauce recipe is much better. Those quibbles aside, many of the recipes here are very, very good and easy to riff on for future iterations. Favorites include the butternut squash risotto, which then transforms into arancini the next day; the butternut squash black bean enchiladas; the spicy Brussel sprout coconut rice avocado bowls (we make this over and over again in the summer); and the super simple recipe for spicy roasted broccoli.

    The book itself is beautiful and I really enjoyed reading through it. I also love the idea of eating seasonally and this is a great resource when you happen to have leftover produce or decide to pick up whatever looks good at the farmers market. That being said, I was a little disappointed in the recipes themselves. Not that they aren't good recipes (the few I have made so far were delicious) but most of the dishes feel like sides to me and only make enough to serve 4.

Eating plant based I feel like I enjoy eating more hearty meals and having leftovers throughout the week, only some of the recipes have a source of protein and I feel like I either need to eat something along side of them or eat more than the 1 serving allotted. I am happy to have the book and will continue to cook from it, I just won't count on it to be a source for dinner planning.

    This is a vegetable cookbook that's organized alphabetically. At first I thought the unorthodox organization would be weird, but it actually makes a ton of sense - if you have leftover fennel, look under 'F'! The dishes range in skill and time, but this is a beautiful book that would be very useful to a vegetarian. A lot of the recipes were different, and pretty light and refreshing. A really good book.

Would also be good if you are part of a CSA and need recipes for what's in your weekly box.

    This book is amazing! What a unique concept! I love that author put recipes by the veggies she is using. It is not organized by breakfast, lunch, dinner- like all the other books, but by apples, artichokes, berries, cucumber, etc. Recipes are mostly vegan and gluten free, or the author gives the tip and options, to make it fully vegan. Each recipe is illustrated by beautiful photo. Just looking at the photos you can get hungry. There are a lot of mouth watering creations and they are easy to make. T This book is amazing!

    Here's yet another cookbook that evolved from a blog which focuses on veggies and has vegan recipes which I need because of my need to avoid dairy! From this book I made the Spicy Cornbread (minus the serrano pepper) and the Double Chocolate zucchini muffins! Both were great. The muffins are excellent and I know that I will make them again. Both use ingredients that I always have on hand: almond milk, coconut oil, maple syrup, for example.

    This is a must read for vegetable lovers. There is a variety of vegetarian recipes, presented in alphabetical order, so when you have a particular ingredient, you don't have to search through breakfast/lunch/dinner sections. While the book is beautifully photographed, the recipes can use uncommon ingredients (at least around here), and there's a fair amount of fussy prep. Also, I like meat. :-)

    I love this cookbook - especially that it's organized with chapters based on ingredients liked broccoli, Brussels sprouts, etc, which is helpful since I'm always trying to use up the remnants of previous recipes. I'll confess that I haven't tried everything in this book, but everything I've made I enjoyed and I often find myself going to the author's blog for more ideas about what to make for dinner.

    This is a fun and flirty cookbook with nice updates to common recipes. Recipes are organized alphabetically by the main vegetable you want to use. Perfect for those CSA overflows! I counted it up though, and I wouldn’t be able to use 8 out of 26 sections because those fruits or veggies are so northern hemisphere that even if I find them here in Brazil, they are outrageously expensive. I wouldn’t use nearly 1/3 of the recipes.... probably gonna pass on buying this one.

    Don't be fooled by the title: this book is not all about lemons. There's plenty of citrus thrown around, but it's otherwise an A-Z reference for vegetables, fruits and grains we have sitting around and don't use. Instead of letting these things rot or sit on shelves, we can make soups, tapas, and tasty desserts or smoothies. There is a picture of every recipe, and an excellent chart in the back for substituting in hummus and other homemade treats.

    The pictures are GREAT - I wish every cookbook had such great photography. I also liked how the book was organized (by food or food group, rather than breakfast, dinner, etc.). However, a lot of the ingredients are things that are just not readily available where I live and I only found a handful of recipes that sounded enticing to me.

    I found some of the recipes repetitive. How many vegetarian taco recipes can one book include? And all soups followed a VERY similar blueprint. I liked that the book did not include an intro note before each recipe, unlike most cookbooks nowadays. Aside from that, basic but pretty and current vegetarian recipes. Nice layout.
