I love this cookbook. It's full of beautiful photos and wonderful recipes. I especially loved the Quinoa Salad with Dried Persian Lime. If you like this cookbook then check out Jerusalem.

I love this cookbook! Very original recipes organized by type of vegetable. If you want to find new creative ways to use veggies, whether as side dishes or mains, I highly recommend this book.

Fabulous cookbook -- true vegetable porn. We've made Asparagus Mimosa and Lentils with broiled Eggplant, both sumptuous and repeatable. You gotta see this to believe it.

He may not actually be vegetarian but Yotam Ottolenghi can certainly convey the pleasure of vegetarian food. In "Plenty," the Israeli chef presents recipes featuring vegetables, pulses, grains, eggs and dairy, most of which highlight the flavours of the Mediterranean.

To his credit, Ottolenghi treats his ingredients with dignity; he proves that lentils can taste as delicious as beef provided you don't consider them a substitute. Indeed, every dish from roasted sweet potato wedges with herbs and chillies to cabbage and kohlrabi salad with sour cherries to black pepper tofu sounds substantial and appetizing. The myriad of lovely, glossy photos make the book a pleasure to peruse whether you cook from it or not.

Some recipes contain a large list of ingredients but all look easy enough to make with moderate time and effort. The instructions are laid out clearly but there is little other text to read - disappointing for those who like a bit of commentary with each recipe. Overall, a worthwhile addition to anyone's cookbook collection whether vegetarian or "flexetarian."

Loved this book! Don’t let the vegetarian moniker stop you from attempting the recipes within. Although some of the recipes are more time consuming than others, the results are brilliant and inspiring! You will learn how to cleverly build a depth of flavor in these dishes by roasting, frying, baking, pickling and even smoking various parts of the dish(es). Fresh, original and well worth checking out!
