Vegetarian Any Day by Patricia Green and Carolyn Hemming: By no means is this a prescriptive take on vegetarianism. Instead it is a wonderful collection of creative and delectable recipes that inspire and encourage us to eat meatless one or even a few times per week.
Extensive sections on alternative protein sources, vegetarian pantry staples and essential kitchen tools work to set the cook up for success as they dive into the wide array of recipes that follow.
My favourite recipe in the book is Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower bites, which essentially tastes like a veggie version of chicken wings, especially when paired with the great blue cheese dip recipe. The Chipotle Sweet Potato Tacos with Grilled Pineapple Salsa is now a family favourite as is the Jamaican Jerk Tofu – even my meat-loving husband likes this, especially with the HEAT that comes from the whole scotch bonnet. Vegetarian Any Day is a great way to introduce the spirit of Meatless Mondays to your family – any day of the week!
