From dips and cold bites (Malaysian Spring Rolls) to main dishes (Shiitake Mac ’n’ Cheese), from brunch (Cardamon Blueberry Cake) to “sweet eats” (Oreo Key Lime Pie), Emmons’s dishes offer endless possibilities for vegetarians, vegans, and anyone else in search of a satisfying meal. Her creative menus (“Vegetarian Solutions to Turkey Day”) and her spirit of fun (“if you’re serving only one food, make it homemade ice cream”) will put all cooks in the mood to share.
The recipes in the book are fabulous. I have tried several recipes and they have all been a hit – the kind that will get your friends to ask for the recipe (even the non-vegetarian ones!) The recipes are very simple yet creative. I have “read” the book cover to cover, and everything looks so delicious and interesting that I cannot wait to try more of them out. Sometimes I find when I buy a cookbook that I only wind up caring for a few recipes in the whole book. I don’t think it’ll be the case with this one! I have bought several copies of the book to give to friends, meat eating ones included.
I loved the restaurant and am so sorry it closed! This cook book helps me recreate some fabulous meals I had there.
When I lived in Boston, I used to love the Veggie Planet restaurant. My wife and I received this book as a present and I’ve been working my way through, making different dishes for parties or other events. So far I’ve really loved the recipes. They’re pretty easy to follow and generally free of surprises. The ginger cauliflower curry and peanut Thai curry quickly become regular standards in our house, for example.
