Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison's Kitchen

Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison's Kitchen By Deborah Madison, Broadway Books; 2005. Paperback. $20; 228 pages

Vegetarian recipes can sometimes get too complicated as they reach to achieve richness in the absence of meat or fish. Thankfully, this book takes a breezier approach. Recipes are all main dishes, interesting but not overly complex. Thin Herb Omelet and Arugula Sandwich is amazingly easy, fresh, and satisfying. And Once- and Twice-Baked Goat Cheese Soufflés take the anxiety out of soufflé-making, relieving the cook with the notion that falling is not failure: They're baked ahead, allowed to fall, then reheated till they reinflate. Throughout are tips on accompaniments, plus fun wine and beer pairings.

GIVE THIS TO: Easygoing cooks who like to keep things casual. —Tiffany Vickers Davis
