With The Moosewood Cookbook, Mollie Katzen changed the way a generation cooked and brought vegetarian cuisine into the mainstream. In The Heart of the Plate, the James Beard Cookbook Hall of Fame inductee reinvents the vegetarian repertoire with a collection of 250 healthful and unfussy dishes.

Whether it’s a salad of kale and angel hair pasta with orange chili oil or a seasonal autumn lasagna, these dishes are celebrations of vegetables. They feature layered dishes that juxtapose colors and textures: orange rice with black beans, or buttermilk corn cakes on a Peruvian potato stew. Burgers and savory pancakes — from eggplant Parmesan burgers to zucchini ricotta cloud cakes — make weeknight dinners fresh and exciting. The Heart of the Plate is illustrated with photographs and original watercolors by Katzen herself.

Katzen, with over 6 million books in print, is one of the best-selling cookbook authors of all time.
