I thought this cookbook was going to be a little boring. I mean, a whole book of nothing but veggies? But wow, it's really packed with good prep advice and great recipes.

The cookbook has both a table of contents with all the vegetables covered (there are almost 50 of them...) AND a list of all featured recipes categorized by their main vegetable component. So it's easy to find what you're looking for. (Of course there's also a comprehensive index in the back, too.)

Each vegetable section starts

I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK. I was looking for a book that would step up my vegetable making game. This is that and SO MUCH MORE! Each vegetable chapter begins with a brief history of how that vegetable has come to us in its current iteration and talks about when the vegetable is in season, how to identify when it is fresh/ripe, how to store it, and how to prepare it. Then there are several pages with loads of recipes dedicated to highlighting that one vegetable. Some are totally classic while others ar ...more

Disclaimer: I am usually not a huge fan of Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen cookbooks. I tend to be suspicious of folks who over-analyze food science, and I don't find that ATK recipes correspond with my own palate much. However, this is definitely one of their best books to date. The recipes feel fresher and more modern than theirs sometimes do, and the information about the vegetables themselves is thorough. For me, most of these recipes are too similar to dishes I already make for th ...more

A huge array of recipes covering not every vegetable but going through about 40 of them in depth. The book is arranged by vegetable so you can easily skip over recipes for veggies you don't care for. I loved the variety of recipes--most veggies had one or two very basic recipes that were more focused on techniques (e.g. roasted asparagus, grilled asparagus) and then some more adventurous but relatively easy to execute additions, including side dishes and mains, plus salads and soups. Not every r ...more

This cookbook is beautiful and so well organized, which is alphabetical by vegetable type. They do give a variety of recipes and even preparation types for each veggie. In full disclosure, I picked this cookbook up because I've developed an intolerance to raw fruits and vegetables and am devastated. I have been looking for more recipes to extend my background with veggies and this really if the bill. While I can't eat the raw salads, they sure look good, but there are plenty of delicious cooked ...more

Vegetables Illustrated is a comprehensive book with an absolute plethora of recipes. However, it did seem intent on debunking myths and shattering beliefs. But old habits die hard. So I'll continue to keep my tomatoes at room temperature and my mushrooms in a paper bag, not a plastic one.

I want to make everything in this cookbook. It all sounds incredible. It’s not a vegetarian cookbook, it’s grouped by vegetables from artichokes to zucchini and each dish makes its veggie the star.

Found a couple dozen recipes I'll be trying. Already made the marinaded mushrooms, braised carrots with apples & cauliflower cakes. Looking forward to the Mexican grilled corn this weekend.
