"Plenty is one of those cookbooks you dribble over while flicking through its pages. [The recipes] demand to be eaten." The Guardian "Plenty takes an inspired and fresh approach to vegetarian cooking. Sumptuous photographs make this an ideal gift for all foodies." The Independent "The hottest cookbook of the year" The Guardian "He's a genius: his isn't exactly Middle eastern cooking - he's from Jerusalem - but it draws its very breath from the explosive colours and tastes of the region." The Scotsman "The man who sexed up veg." Evening Standard --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.

Top Customer Reviews
- the first is the original book published 4 the UK (2010), the other in the US (2011)
- the first uses grams, millilitres, the other uses cups, ounces and pounds. Both use tsp and tbsp
- the ingredients appear in the order they are used in the second book
- their covers are different but all images and recipes inside the books are EXACTLY identical
- some ingredients are named differently : double cream for heavy cream, caster sugar for sugar, broad beans for fava beans, etc.
- the quantities in the second book are really rounded : 400g asparagus is 1 lb
I bought the second book by mistake and I prefer the first one for the metric units.
What a wonderful book !
These recipes are based on meatless dishes and reflect eclectic influences including the Middle East, South East Asia and Latin America. The book is full of delicious, mouth-watering recipes.
The chapter headings may give some idea:
Courgettes and Other Squashes
The Mighty Aubergine
Leaves Cooked and Raw
Pasta, Polenta, Couscous
Fruit with Cheese
The recipes are accompanied by anecdotes and by mouth-wateringly beautiful photographs. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The amount of preparation required varies between dishes: some are quick and easy, others will require more time. But it's worth it. There is a recipe here for just about any occasion.
I first borrowed this book from the library, but quickly realised that I needed my own copy.
A note for American readers: the ingredients are listed in grams and millilitres rather than cups and ounces.
This is my favorite go to cookbook for fast and easy delcious meals to accompany meat or not
