I've bought a few vegetarian books but, oddly, they don't contain all that many vegetable recipes. I'm looking for dishes packed with veggies that don't take ages to prepare, and aren't mostly cheese, cream, butter, etc.
Thanks VLB - got that one, nice recipes which I'd've enjoyed pre-kids, but mostly a bit sophisticated for everyday family meals. Maybe I haven't given it enough of a chance, but I keep opening it and then closing it again because I can't see anything I can imagine the kids eating.
The recipes are actually mostly really easy, once you get over the ingredients list!
Everything I've made from it has been really good. The only thing that annoys me is she doesn't say whether things are considered a side dish or a main meal so she'll say something serves six, for example - but then it's tiny and should have been served with lots of other things.
How to cook everything vegetarian by Mark Bittman (used to write a column in the NY Times called "The Minimalist"). It's the sequel to his other one called "how to cook everything" and been updated for the UK, see here on Amazon.
For very basic stuff I really like a running / fitness training book that happens to have recipes in it. It's by Anita Bean, and called 'Fitness Foods'. Loads of veg and plain carbs. Not a veggie book, but has loads of veggie recipes / alternatives.
