Summary

“Easy, energetic prose and an intelligent ensemble of accessible recipes offer readers an insider’s taste tour of Basque cuisine.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) 
 
Winner of the Périgueux World Cookbook Award 
 
Winner of the Spanish National Prize for Gastronomy 
 
Join award-winning, internationally acclaimed chef Teresa Barrenechea as she takes you on a culinary journey through her homeland, the historic Basque region of Spain’s north-central coast. Barrenechea brings you 130 recipes, from San Sebastián to Bilbao and beyond, that exemplify the authentic, uncomplicated dishes characteristic of rustic Basque home cooking, which glories in fresh fish and shellfish; abundant meat, poultry, and cheese; vegetables and fruits straight from the garden; the olives and olive oils for which Spain is famous; and much more. From boldly flavored pinchos (Basque tapas) to succulent main-course dishes, you’ll find dozens of delicious choices as you explore this renowned cuisine. So pour yourself a glass of wine and take a seat at The Basque Table. 
 
“The flavors of the Basque Country have a simple intensity and spirit, and the food is robust and satisfying yet easy to cook. This is a wonderful cookbook.” —Mark Miller, chef/owner of Coyote Café and Red Sage restaurants, and author of Tacos 
 
“Teresa Barrenechea long ago convinced me that Basque food is one of the world’s culinary treasures. I am happy that Teresa has written this terrific book.” —Julio Iglesias 
 
“Only Teresa Berrenechea could write the definitive Basque cookbook. The food of Spain is defined by Basque cooking. At last we learn the secrets.” —Michael Lomonaco, host of the Travel Channel’s Epicurious

    The author of Start Simple and Bowl “has shattered the protein/veg/sauce format that has shackled vegetarian food for decades” (Amanda Cohen, chef/owner, Dirt Candy).   
     
    Vegetarian Entrées That Won’t Leave You Hungry solves the riddle that challenges countless cooks every night: What can I make besides pasta, a stir-fry, or a veggie burger—with readily available ingredients and without too much fuss—for a filling and flavorful vegetarian main course? 
     
    The 70 main-course recipes here are as wonderfully varied and delicious as those in Lukas Volger’s first book, Veggie Burgers Every Which Way. Yet this is food that can be made every day—from pantry and refrigerator staples like grains, beans, noodles, eggs, and tofu, as well as a wide variety of fresh, seasonal produce that will give you tasty options all year round! 
     
    Break free of your old dinner routine with easy entrées that coordinate with the seasons like Summer Squash Gratin and Butternut Squash and Brussels Sprouts Galette, recipes that draw on Southeast Asian cuisines like Classic Pad Thai and Kimchi Stew, and inventions that transform everyday ingredients into appealing new flavor combinations like Volger’s Curried Potato Crepe Stack. With Vegetarian Entrées That Won’t Leave You Hungry, you’ll never be at a loss for a new dish for dinner. 
     
    Also included are recipes for flavor enhancers and finishing touches—such as croutons, caramelized onions, roasted garlic, pestos, kimchi, and more—and over 15 informative features on “Vegetarian Kitchen Essentials,” including Five Salad Dressings, Five Easy Desserts, Cooking for One, and Hosting a Dinner Party. 
     
    “The beauty of Volger’s approach lies in its simplicity, creativity, and portability.” —Publishers Weekly
