    so i cut meat waaaay back. easy veggie recipes?

    i am trying to eat meat once a week. if that.

    so needless to say, i've been trying to learn to cook more veggies. doing simple, fresh veggie sauces with pasta, veggie bean dishes over brown rice, soups, etc.

    any good recipe books?

    on the bright side, my knife skills are vastly improving. and my body just seems to function better..

    Below is a website that Z turned me onto a year or so ago. I like because it doesn't do "fake" food, e.g. make tofu taste like prime rib but rather offers good vegetable dishes. Gotta admit I don't go there often but when I have it's worked.

    I've only scanned through it, not cooked anything from it, but Plenty is a nice option.

    River Cottage Veg might be interesting. I haven't read it but I love their Meat cookbook.

    I've got this cookbook coming in the mail.... I can let you know what I think if you'd like.

    All of the Ottolenghi books are good. Alice Waters has some veggie books from Chez Panisse. There is an older cookbook from Debbie Madison of the Greens Restaurant in SF, called The Greens Cookbook.

    Bombay potatoes.

    If you can't find a good recipe I'll write one up at some point.

    +1 plenty. Jerusalem is good too. I recently got "tasting India" which has heaps of tasty vege dishes.

    . . . plus the earlier one by Katzen as well - Moosewood Cookbook.

    And as suggested already, the Ottolenghi books are really good, especially Plenty.
