Italian-Style Vegetarian Cooking

Honest Cooking contributor and food writer Veronica Lavenia has released yet another helpful cookbook, The Vegetarian Italian Kitchen.

Veronica’s beautiful book helps us remember that to eat meatless in Italy, means more than pasta. While yes, the books contains many recipes that feature the staple starch of the Mediterranean cuisines, it also forces us to think in a whole new way. Thankfully, the Mediterranean culture is loaded with hearty grains, beans, and beautiful produce, so vegetarian cooking is natural with these flavors.

The book is broken up by the season, so home cooks can easily flip to ‘Spring’ or ‘Fall’ and match the seasons’ produce they have on hand to the recipes. Plus, the book even provides easy, Italian desserts that highlight the season.
