16) The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen by Peter Berley and Melissa Clark

Winner 2001 James Beard Foundation Book Awards: Vegetarian

the-modern-vegetarian-kitchen-

The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen, by Peter Berley with Melissa Clark, follows the fundamental vegetarian principles, but Berley readily concedes that not every person's constitution is equipped to follow this diet resolutely. Peter's mission is to show how the simple act of cooking food can enliven your senses and nourish your life––from going to the farmers market and outfitting your kitchen with the simplest, most useful tools to learning techniques and sharing meals with friends and family. He takes you through the seasons, with more than 200 sumptuous recipes that feature each ingredient at its peak.

In the book, you will discover recipes that include meat substitutes such as tempeh and seitan, but he dresses them carefully to ensure a full complement of flavor components. His special Seitan Bourguignonne contains virtually identical ingredients to its classic provincial French model but without beef and bacon. Similarly, except for the substitution of seitan for lamb, Peter's shepherd's pie could pass for a well-seasoned version of the genuine dish. He has broad knowledge of macrobiotic cookery that is shown in his love of Japanese ingredients such as burdock root. Thus, he generates new audiences for ancient Eastern vegetables. Polenta, a North Italian staple of boiled cornmeal, gets a healthy twist by substituting millet for the customary cornmeal and mellowing out with pureed sweet potato. As a brunch presentation, Spinach-Mushroom Quiche's crust gains texture from oats and sesame seeds. 


15) A New Way to Cook by Sally Schneider

Winner 2002 James Beard Foundation Book Awards: Healthy Focus

a-new-way-to-cook

Despite continued emphasis on low-fat cooking as an antidote to a wide range of contemporary nutrition-related illnesses, no one has addressed comprehensively the issue of creating fine food with an eye to reducing high fat levels found in most cookbooks. Sally Schneider has set herself to altering the course of everyday cooking in "A New Way to Cook". Recognizing the importance of texture and full flavors and the insipidness of manufactured and highly processed food substitutes, she has set out to reproduce classic, time-tested recipes with less fat than their originals. 

More than 600 lavishly illustrated recipes result in marvelous, vividly flavored foods. You will find quintessential American favorites that taste every bit as good as the traditional "full-tilt" versions: macaroni and cheese, rosemary buttermilk biscuits, chocolate malted pudding. You will find Italian polentas, risottos, focaccias, and pastas, all reinvented without the loss of a single drop of deliciousness. Asian flavors shine through in cold sesame noodles; mussels with lemongrass, ginger, and chiles; and curry-crusted shrimp. Even French food is no longer on the forbidden list, with country-style pâtés and cassoulet.


14) Passionate Vegetarian by Crescent Dragonwagon

Winner 2003 James Beard Foundation Book Awards: Vegetarian/Healthy Focus

passionate-vegetarian-
