The Love and Lemons Cookbook

The Love & Lemons Cookbook

My first book! The biggest difference between it and Love & Lemons Every Day is that The Love & Lemons Cookbook is organized by vegetable (or fruit) from A-Z. Instead of finding a breakfast or dessert chapter, you’ll find one for Apples, Tomatoes, Winter Squash, and more! Here’s what else is in it:

  • 100+ plant-forward recipes. Because this book is organized by vegetable, it’s a great resource for showcasing your farmers market finds. Need ideas for how to use that gorgeous bunch of carrots or bushel of tomatoes? This book has them!
  • Mix & Match Recipe Charts! These colorful grids offer fun flavor variations for kitchen basics like pesto, hummus, and fruit smoothies.
  • Tips for cooking with what you have. The opening of the book is all about how to cook with the veggies you have on hand. Find my best advice on seasoning them, plus my go-to meal ideas when I need to whip something up on a weeknight.
  • Lots of vegan and gluten-free options. Like in Love & Lemons Every Day, if a recipe isn’t already vegan or gluten-free, I almost always tell you how to change it. (All the recipes are vegetarian.)

Who would love this book?
This book is for the vegetable lovers in your life, the people who love to head to the farmers market and cook with whatever catches their eye that day. It’s also wonderful for anyone who needs quick and simple recipes. They all have short ingredient lists, and making them is straightforward, but they still pack a huge punch of flavor!
