vegetarian cookbooks and LI restaurant recommendations
My 20 year old niece is a vegetarian and just started cooking. I'd like to give her a cookbook. Any recommendations for a novice vegetarian cook?
Also, she's in Babylon, any recommendations on Vegetarian restaurants in Suffolk or eastern Nassau?
Thanks for any help
For cookbooks, I'd recommend Bittman's "How to Cook Everything Vegetarian":
For restaurants, there's Tula Kitchen in Bay Shore
Tiger Lily Cafe is in Port Jefferson:
Cornucopia is more health-food store than restaurant, but they have a deli section with tables, and make AMAZING soups, as well as many other items:
Not exclusively vegetarian, but they strongly lean that way, and everything's labeled (including for allergies).
Otherwise, my favorite vegetarian places are well inside Nassau--Dosa Diner and House of Dosas in Hicksville.
House of Dosas
416 S Broadway, Hicksville, NY 11801
41 E Main St, Bay Shore, NY
scott beat me to the punch. go to tula's in bay shore. they have numerous vegetarian options and overall their food is very healthy & very fresh. plus the downtown area there is cool to walk around for someone her age.
