Meatless Meals are Good For You, For Animals, And For The Planet!

But you probably knew all that! So what holds you back from eating vegetarian more often? Are you concerned that your meals …

What is in the Book?

“I’ve been following Michael’s blog for a couple of years now, despite not being a vegetarian, and every recipe I’ve tried has been wonderful. I’ve been eagerly anticipating this book, and can’t wait for it to arrive.”

- Rowan Watson, loyal reader

The book is hardcover, 368 pages, and includes 150 recipes and 80+ full color photos. When you plan a vegetarian meal, are you unsure what to do for an entree? I’ve included over 40 hearty main courses, along with a large selection of appetizers, salads, soups and side dishes. Chapters on breakfast and some out-of-the-ordinary desserts round out the selection.

Over half of the recipes are either vegan or easily made so with simple substitutions, and the same is true for gluten-free.

More than just a recipe book, Herbivoracious offers advice on stocking your pantry, equipping your kitchen, and detailed headnotes and sidebars that will make you a better cook.
