    Cooking at its Simplest (and Finest)

    As an avid amateur chef and cookbook collector, it speaks volumes that this is the cookbook I reach for, over and over, whenever I want simple, honest, delicious vegetarian food. The section I use the most is the individual vegetable section, where Brown offers cooking methods and recipes for every vegetable imaginable. The recipes are very easy, and the ingredient lists are not long and intimidating. There are also sections for soups, casseroles, main dish pies, fruits, and so on. This book has actually TAUGHT me how to cook, and how to follow my own instincts in preparing my food. Brown has also included some of his lovely poetry in between some of the sections. If you are interested in persuing cooking as a part of your spiritual path, this cookbook, along with any of Brown's other books, is for you.
