London's Yotam Ottolenghi follows his bestselling Plenty with a splendid mix of simple but deeply flavored cross-cultural vegetable dishes. Silky steamed eggplant, with almost no fat, is tangy with mirin, sesame, ginger, and maple syrup. Seared fennel is simmered with verjuice, capers, thyme, and black olives.Yotam Ottolenghi, Ten Speed Press, $35, 352 pages
