Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone by Deborah Madison. Her philosophy of food and the wide range of delicious vegetarian recipes makes this one of our favorite cookbooks by Madison. We love her reliance of farmer’s markets and local produce. Many of the dishes are simple, fragrant and colorful, and include creative ingredients that go well together as a vegetarian side or full meal — try the Goat Cheese with Corn and Red Mole Enchiladas, Winter Squash Soup with Fried Sage Leaves, Sabzi, and Prune Tart in Almond Crust. This is one of our top ten cookbooks. We recommend it for everyone’s kitchen, veggie or not.
