non-vegetarian cookbooks

I am in search of a cookbook that heavily features veggies in their main dishes, but not vegetarian. Recipes with lots of veggie and a small amount of meat. Anybody ever seen such a thing?

  1. Many Chinese and middle eastern dishes rely on vegetables with just small amounts of meat. You might want to consider cookbooks based on foods of those ethnic groups.
    Or collect as much as you can from sites like this:

    1. There's a new book out called eat your vegetables that is just what you're looking for.

      1. The Flexitarian Table by Peter Berley is a cookbook that lists seasonal menus for vegetarians and omnivores . These menus are meant to be served at one meal thus appeasing folks who eat one type food but not another. It's not as complicated as one might think. It was COTM during May 2008. Here's the master thread leading to the report threads and includes many of his recipes...

        1. Mark Bittman's Food Matters cookbook is exactly that.

            Oh yes... I second The Food Matters Cookbook. Have made many recipes that we have really enjoyed.

          2. In "The Vegetarian Option" Simon Hopkinson says he will probably always be a carnivore and includes his recipe for chicken stock. Everything else seems to be not meat, but sure looks good.
