Leiths Vegetable Bible by Polly Tyrer


Leiths Vegetable Bible by Polly Tyrer

Leiths Vegetable Bible offers almost 1,000 delicious vegetarian recipes, ranging from the simple to the sophisticated. Included are recipes for snacks, salads, desserts and baking, as well as classic slow-cooked dishes and modern main courses that can be prepared in minutes. With everything from avocado and rocket gazpacho, Jamaican black bean pot and Swiss chard quiche to fig crumble cake, strawberry tequila sorbet and rich chocolate peach cake, this mighty cookbook covers all culinary eventualities. With the rise of box schemes and farmer's markets, more people are cooking creatively with vegetables than ever before. Leiths Vegetable Bible is the perfect companion not just for vegetarians but for anyone who wants to give vegetables a central role in the kitchen.
