COOKING / Vegetarian
The ultimate cookbook filled with over 110 wildly delicious vegetable-packed recipes for weeknight meals that will satisfy everyone from the creator of the popular blog Evergreen Kitchen.

Bri Beaudoin, creator of the popular blog Evergreen Kitchen, has been captivating her fans with delicious and healthy vegetarian recipes for years. While we all know that a home-cooked meal is the best for our budgets and our health, the idea of cooking dinner on weeknights can feel like a chore. With many of us eating more veggie­forward meals, it’s no wonder busy home cooks are craving tasty vegetarian recipes that everyone at the dinner table will love. 

Evergreen Kitchen is bursting with beautiful, flavourful recipes-that just so happen to be vegetarian. The recipes provide much-needed inspiration for delicious weeknight mains that are sure to make your taste buds sing, and a sprinkling of simple, yet scrumptious, desserts for those who like to end their meal with something sweet. Whether you want to cook a vegetarian meal one night a week-or every night-Evergreen Kitchen is packed with over 110 recipes to make it happen with dishes that satisfy the heartiest of appetites like Veggie Skillet Pot Pie and Cheesy Chipotle Quinoa Bake to Spicy Miso Ramen and Sheet-Pan Veggie Fajitas. 

Throughout the book, there is something for everyone: salads that eat like a meal, easy one pot and sheet-pan recipes, crowd-pleasing noodles, nostalgic comfort foods, healthy bowls, hearty soups, delicious desserts, and so much more. Many of the recipes feature make-ahead options, easy substitutions, and modifications to make them vegan and/or gluten-free (if they aren’t already). In addition, learn how to stock your pantry with the essentials, the small handful of kitchen tools that are actually worth having, and tips and tricks to make vegetarian meals craveable. Filled with gorgeous photography and plenty of step-by-step images throughout the book to illustrate exactly how to get things done, Evergreen Kitchen brings weeknight vegetarian dinners to life.

    HUGELY POPULAR FOOD TREND: A skyrocketing trend to eat more plants shows no sign of stopping. Whether a vegetarian or just leaning into a few more veggie-based meals, everyone is looking for recipes.
