Recommendations? Vegetarian Cook Book with Nutrition Information?
My friend is graduating from college with a degree in nutrition. I wanted to get her a great vegetarian cookbook. I had a few in mind, but it seems she wants something that has the nutrition information printed next to the recipe. Does anybody have any recommendations?
Non-veg cookbooks are good too, as long as they aren't too meat-centric.
Thank you for these suggestions. I went through so many beautiful cookbooks at the bookstore, and none of them had nutritional information. The only ones that did were cookbooks for disease-related diets and weight-loss. I thought maybe I would have to give up on getting one. The bookstore guy actually handed me a cookbook for IBS. I was thinking...are you crazy? That would be an awesome graduation present to give, especially since the graduate does not suffer--as far as I know--from Irritable Bowell Syndrome. Maybe he didn't know what "IBS" stands for?
I'll look up all these books online! If you have any more suggestions, I would love to hear them.
The Romantic Vegetarian by Judith Sharlin,, R.D.
Yummy recipes, not low calorie, for special occasions. I believe the nutritional breakdown is in the back of the book. Lovingly calculated by hand in 1984—before all the nutritional tools on the Internet.
Diana Shaw's "The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook" has nutritional info for each recipe, along with a great index of fruits, vegetables, and staple products listed with their nutritional content and methods for prepping and cooking. I'm a part-time vegetarian but this cookbook is a staple in my kitchen.
