Whether your vegetarian kids are in town or you're looking to reduce your carbon footprint, Jenny Rosenstrach has something for everyone! This cookbook is perfect for those looking to eat less meat without sacrificing quick, tasty, satisfying weeknight meals. Instead of vegetarian meals trying to convince you they "really taste like beef," Rosenstrach offers veggie- and bean-forward dishes to change the way you think about dinner. Rosenstrach's recipes are simple and frequently rely on pantry staples, making them accessible for those less comfortable in the kitchen. Some cookbooks are beautiful and stay on the shelf or the coffee table for browsing, while others are quickly grease-splattered and never leave the kitchen; The Weekday Vegetarians undoubtedly fits in the latter category. The Crunchy-Cheesy Bean Bake is on regular rotation in my kitchen!
