I wanted to add more vegetables to my diet, but found myself cooking them the same vegetables, the same way all the time. This is a great book. Chapters are in alphabetical order by vegetable. It's easy to find information and there is probably 3 to 5 recipes for each vegetable. So, now when I'm at the store, I buy what's on sale or try something new and then can easily find a recipe! If you cook often, or want to start cooking more at home, this is a great cookbook!

I compulsively check cookbooks out of the library, and I'm always looking for good ways to prepare vegetables. All too often the recipes I come across are poorly thought out, or weird for weirdness's sake, or require too many rare or expensive ingredients. This cookbook commits none of those errors. I've made 31 recipes out of it so far, and I think there was one that was just ok--otherwise, all of them have been outstanding. Bishop really understands his raw materials and how to flatter their flavors. If he suggests an unusual ingredient, such as roasted peanut oil or hoisin sauce, it's with good reason, and there are plenty of other recipes where you'll be able to use it too. I haven't been very impressed with other all-vegetable cookbooks, including some of the famous vegetarian ones (honestly, The Moosewood Cookbook is more culturally than culinarily interesting), but this one is worth its weight in arugula!

I've been eating my way through this book for about a year. I just love it. I learned that I was preparing a lot of veggies incorrectly which is why they tasted so bland and, sometimes, mushy. The recipies are interesting without being weird and often apply to more than one kind of vegetable. I've gotten a lot out of this book and I keep buying more copies as gifts for my friends and family who are trying to eat healthy and who are bored with their frozen-dumped-in-a-pan routine. I find most of the recipies are simple and fairly quick to prepare.

I bought this after hearing the author on the radio a few years ago, and I love it. I just bought it for a friend because she loved the veggie dishes I bring to work. The veggies are listed alphabetically, and you can look up any veggie you have and find numerous easy and tasty recipes for it. It's also great if you see an interesting looking unkown veggie in the store - you can buy it knowing there will be a description of the veggie, how it tastes and basic ways to prepare it and serve it in the book.
