The Vegetarian Flavor Bible

The 576 pages of The Vegetarian Flavor Bible are filled with countless tips for easy ways to add more flavor to everything you cook, like how to make creamy vegetable sauce for pasta using just steamed vegetables, a Vitamix, some ice, a hint of cayenne or chili pepper flakes, and an optional touch of brown butter.  (Learn more about the flavor discoveries that author Karen Page made during the research of the cook in the EYB interview.) We're delighted to offer five copies of The Vegetarian Flavor Bible to EYB members in the U.S. and Canada only.

    I love the authors' book, 'The Flavor Bible.' Many of the meals I cook today are meat-free and I've contemplated eliminating meat altogether and going vegetarian full-time. Having this book would be a great asset in that effort.

    Basil + Pineapple! I have "The Flavor Bible" in my kitchen and refer to it often. SO EXCITED to see there is a new one!

  • kimtrev  on  10/15/2014 at 5:07 PM

    I was surprised by how well cinnamon & raspberry go together.

  • ellabee  on  10/15/2014 at 7:56 PM

    Bay, thyme, and pears (from a braised pork dish by Jerry Traunfeld). Like fitfeat, I use The Flavor Bible often, and we eat vegetarian at least several days of the week, so this veg. version has been on my wishlist since I've been aware of it.

  • pgarcia  on  10/15/2014 at 9:55 PM

    Maybe not so unusual, but I love apples (or pears) and cheddar together.

  • joyofcooking1931  on  10/15/2014 at 11:35 PM

    Strawberries and coriander! So good.

  • wester  on  10/16/2014 at 2:03 AM

    Cauliflower and cumin is great, and adding some caraway adds even more depth.

  • hihelen_westbrook  on  10/16/2014 at 3:17 AM

    Cinnamon with pork. It was in a recipe and I was so unconvinced until I tried it.

  • decklededges  on  10/16/2014 at 6:46 AM

    I really love ginger with chocolate.

    Chipotle mayonnaise with sweet potato fries. Amazing!

  • JanScholl  on  10/16/2014 at 3:53 PM

    I slice up cabbage and saute in a bit of chipotle olive oil. When almost to the point I like, I add a bit of agave and then simmer. OMG...dinner for me!

  • sizzlingmess  on  10/16/2014 at 4:41 PM

    One of my favorite flavor combinations is tomato and allspice, I always add it to my homemade marinara sauce! It's a little sweet and woody and everyone likes it but no one knows what it is.

  • LilyB612  on  10/16/2014 at 4:47 PM

  • susan g  on  10/16/2014 at 7:54 PM

    Onions come to life with a little thyme, and caraway with potatoes is a surprising and simple delicious match.

  • sgump  on  10/16/2014 at 8:01 PM

    I really like hot sauce on pizza (but, then again, such a thing is commonplace in places like Japan).

  • kitblu  on  10/16/2014 at 10:19 PM

    I love ground Szechuan peppercorns on raw apple slices.

  • spharo00  on  10/17/2014 at 2:12 PM

    I just bought the original Flavor Bible a few months ago and absolutely love it! Like ellabee, I've had this new vegetarian version on my wishlist since I first heard about it. Maybe not an unusual combination to some, but I just recently discovered watermelon + balsamic + feta using The Flavor Bible. I'm excited about all of the possibilities these two books offer.

  • kalex426  on  10/17/2014 at 6:37 PM

    Cardamom and Mace which I found in a mango smoothie recipe, so good!

  • Debcancook  on  10/19/2014 at 6:14 PM

    I'm not sure how unusual the flavor combination is but this time of year family enjoys butternut and apple soup made with coconut milk and flavored with a touch of curry powder. The Vegetarian Flavor Bible is intriguing, I can't wait to learn more!

  • boardingace  on  10/28/2014 at 6:26 PM

    This could take me awhile, I thought - since I'm not very creative and follow recipes all the time - but then I thought of Sriracha-Lime popcorn from Cook's Country magazine, a delicious combination :)

  • Eybhp  on  10/28/2014 at 7:46 PM
