Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore: Dinner for Everyone at the Table
Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore
Dinner for Everyone at the Table
Hardcover      ISBN: 0393083012

For years, Anna Thomas's fans have cooked from her trailblazing vegetarian cookbooks. Now, Anna turns her thoughts to that larger question. We are eating differently: your daughter is a vegan, or you are but your in-laws don't think it's dinner without meat, or you're hosting Thanksgiving for a mixed group... In this timely and useful new book, Anna offers her solutions for reuniting our divided tables.

"My idea is simple," says Anna. "Start with the food everyone eats, design a meal or a dish around that, then expand and elaborate with just the right amounts of the right cheeses, meats, or fish for your omnivores. Everyone feels welcome, and we eat the same meal--but in variations."

Anna shows us how to cook for today's table, with over 150 recipes for all tastes, and menus for every occasion. For a casual evening with friends, Farro with Lentils and Lavender served with Ratatouille from the Charcoal Grill makes a beautiful vegan supper--and also pairs wonderfully with garlic-and-herb rubbed lamb chops for the omnivores. Anna's crowd-pleasing Easy Fish Soup begins as a robust vegetable soup, with seafood added five minutes before serving--an ideal two-way dish. A vegetarian Lemon Risotto with Saut ed Fresh Fava Beans is perfect on its own, and can easily take on tender shrimp. For dessert, have vegan Pumpkin Gingerbread and add vanilla ice cream, or serve a delectable Dark Chocolate Almond Bark studded with ginger and dried cherries.

Anna's festive "Thanksgiving for Everyone" menu centers on a sumptuous Polenta Torta with Roasted Squash and onion marmalade, surrounded by an array of seasonal vegetables--all pairing equally well with roast turkey for the traditionalists. "Taco Night at Home" allows everyone to design their perfect meal, mixing and matching from a spread of Spicy Black Beans, Poblano Peppers with Portobello Mushrooms, Carnitas, and Guajillo Chile Salsa. Anna's exuberant Mediterranean mezze menu is a relaxed summer party, featuring vegan Roasted Eggplant and Poblano Chile Spread with flatbread, Tabbouleh with Chickpeas and Preserved Lemon, Charred Zucchini with Lemon and Mint, and Baked Lamb Kibbeh Wedges for the omnivores.

With dishes inspired by the vibrant produce of farmers' markets, Anna shares her love of cooking and of hospitality. Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore shows us how to navigate a world of change, and bring all our friends and family together at one big, generous table.

'Evergreen' symbolizes something that will last for years and never goes out of fashion. More and more people are focusing on eating green in their daily lives and Mikkel introduces vegetable recipes to inspire. What makes vegetables exciting is that they really change character and taste according to the seasons. In summer a carrot should be pulled from the ground, lightly rinsed and eaten as it is - completely spicy, tender, crisp and juicy. While in late Autumn, when it has been in the ground for a long while enduring weather and wind, and has become big, coarse but sweet in taste, it should be used in a delicious soup, pur e or baked to enhance the wonderful sweetness it has developed. Photographed by Anders Schoennemann as the seasons have move on and new vegetables become ready to harvest, the daylight changes as the long, bright summer evenings became clear autumn days. They enjoyed the most beautiful sunrises, the tranquility of frosty ice-cold mornings, and often the day's first meal was cooked over fire. Mikkel has managed to make easy, tasty and beautiful vegetable dishes that will make the most carnivorous to appreciate a green meal.

And Judith's beef and veal recipes marry beautifully with chiles -- resulting in delectable Mexican Meatballs, Chinese Beef with Orange, Beef Fajitas and Ropa Vieja.

There are also recipes for sides, fresh salsas, sambals and chutneys, not to mention sauces, marinades, dressings and condiments.
