How to Cook Everything Vegetarian is, hands down, one of my favorite cookbooks. The book itself is large, stuffed full of delicious and easy to follow recipes. It did not, however, achieve its size by being packed full of glossy pictures. There are drawn illustrations, but they never feel thrown in. Every time an illustration pops up it is useful and informative. With recipes ranging from fruits, to breads, to pastas, to condiments, this is a cookbook everyone could find useful.
