  • Spinach mousse with Parmesan cream

      ...a fabulous way to eat your greens. It’s a little rich, but it’s also nice to see such humble greens turned into a decadent, silky mousse gilded with that luscious parmesan cream.

Publishers Text

Not so long ago, vegetarian choices were an afterthought on restaurant menus or were relegated to side dishes at home. But times--and eating habits--have changed, and vegetarianism is being touted not just for health reasons but for environmental ones, too.

Using fresh produce and combining seasonal ingredients have always been key to Simon Hopkinson’s cooking. Now, in The Vegetarian Option, the celebrated British chef focuses entirely on mouthwatering dishes without meat or fish. By pairing ingredients that naturally go together--eggplants with red peppers, tomatoes with olives, and peaches with plums, for example--he brings out the fullest flavor in foods. Vegetables take center stage in the book’s 125 original recipes, but there are also plenty of creative ideas for fruit, herbs, pasta, rice, legumes, eggs, dairy, and even cocktails. The Vegetarian Option is not written exclusively for vegetarians, but as a source of inspiration for all food lovers.
