The Weekday Vegetarians: Get Simple

AUGUST 2024

Available at: AmazonBarnes and NobleBookshop

100 accessible, stress-free recipes to make plant-forward cooking more streamlined than ever, from the bestselling author of The Weekday Vegetarians.

Jenny Rosenstrach’s bestselling cookbook, The Weekday Vegetarians, introduced home cooks to the idea that you don’t have to be a vegetarian to eat like one. In Get Simple, she shares 100 new recipes that make eating meat-free even easier, even tastier.

Jenny focuses on solutions to common misconceptions and roadblocks—like “Vegetarian cooking is so complicated!” which she counters with the skillet and sheet pan dinner chapter and recipes like a cozy Sheet Pan Gnocchi with Butternut Squash. Or, “Vegetarian dinners just aren’t filling!” which became the comfort food chapter, rich with recipes for hearty dishes like a Golden Greens Pie and Mushroom-Chard Bread Pudding. And, “I don’t want to eat pasta every single night!” as a driver for showcasing dinner-worthy bowls like Crispy Eggplant Bowls with Pistachios & Basil and Farro Piccolo with Crispy Mushrooms & Parm

If you’re new to eating less meat and need an easy “just start here” option, go straight to Jenny’s vegetarian starter kit that mixes and matches 15 ingredients into 8 different meals, from Carbonara with Cabbage & Miso to Tostada with Eggs & Pickled Onions. And like in her first Weekday Vegetarians cookbook, home cooks will find a whole new battery of hooks, sauces, and sides that will leave you loving your meat-free nights.

.
Jenny Rosenstrach, creator of the beloved blog Dinner: A Love Story and Cup of Jo columnist, knew that she wanted to eat better for health reasons and for the planet but didn’t want to miss the meat that she loves. But why does it have to be all or nothing? She figured that she could eat vegetarian during the week and save meaty splurges for the weekend. The Weekday Vegetarians shows readers how Jenny got her family on board with a weekday plant-based mentality and lays out a plan for home cooks to follow, one filled with brilliant and bold meat-free meals.

Curious cooks will find more than 100 recipes (organized by meal type) for comforting, family-friendly foods like Pizza Salad with White Beans, Cauliflower Cutlets with Ranch Dressing, and Squash and Black Bean Tacos. Jenny also offers key flavor hits that will make any tray of roasted vegetables or bowl of garlicky beans irresistible—great things to make and throw on your next meal, such as spiced Crispy Chickpeas (who needs croutons?), Pizza Dough Croutons (you need croutons!), and a sweet chile sauce that makes everything look good and taste amazing. The Weekday Vegetarians is loaded with practical tips, techniques, and food for thought, and Jenny is your sage guide to getting more meat-free meals into your weekly rotation.

I love all your books. I’m a new parent, struggling to feed my family healthy and delicious meals, despite having no background in/no cooking experience. So far, I’ve tried a couple of recipes from your books, all of which were hits!

I really love your writing! When is your next book coming out?
