The French Market Cookbook

Well, this is it! The French Market Cookbook, my new book of vegetable recipes, is coming out today.

[Scroll down to see how you can enter to win a copy!]

It is an exciting day for me, one I’ve been looking forward to for three years, ever since the idea for the book first popped into my head. (I know the exact date because I have the email I sent my agent that very day to share!) It has been a pretty smooth ride since then — the planning, the proposal-ing, the writing, the recipe testing, the shooting, the editing, the correcting, the naming, the designing, the waiting — and I am most grateful that I’ve had such a great team at Clarkson Potter on my side all along.

And now the book is finally ready — and dying! — to start its own life in your hands and on your kitchen counter. It is my most ardent hope that you and it enjoy each other’s company, and that perhaps you’ll write and tell me about it from time to time.

The French Market Cookbook is available wherever books are sold, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound.

The French Market Cookbook

In The French Market Cookbook, you’ll find my take on the love story between French cuisine and vegetables.

It is admittedly a challenge to dine out as a vegetarian in France, where meat and fish are treated as the main character of any special-occasion dish, yet the French culinary repertoire is rife with delicious ideas on how to cook vegetables.

Over the past few years, I have transitioned to a more and more plant-based way of eating — for reasons of ethics, environmental concern, and natural inclination — so I’ve had plenty of opportunities to explore unusual and exciting ways to use up my weekly selection of seasonal vegetables.

The French Market Cookbook

In this new book I am sharing the best of those dishes through 90 seasonal recipes (many of them vegan) and 75 color photographs by the talented Emilie Guelpa, Françoise Nicol, and Virginie Michelin. Some dishes are personal creations, others are drawn from my research into lesser-known regional cuisines, or inspired by memorable restaurant meals. All are simple and flavorsome, so you can make the most of the time you spend in the kitchen.

My goal, in this book as on the blog, is to teach and inspire, so each of the recipes is meant to leave you not just with a wonderful dish to share with your friends, but also with a trick, a technique, a building block that you can adopt and use elsewhere in your cooking.

If you’d like to see more of the book, you can view excerpts, or use Amazon’s Look Inside! feature.

The French Market Cookbook is available wherever books are sold, including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and IndieBound.

And to celebrate, I have five copies to give away!

  • Sara

    Hello! I am a long time reader of your blog and have never left a comment on your posts until now – I simply couldn’t resist with this giveaway! My ideal vegetarian recipe has to encompass a grain and legume to provide a complete protein (as my family do not like dairy). One of our all time favourite vegetarian meals is roasted cauliflower with sliced onion and garlic and spiced with cumin, coriander and turmeric, then tossed with brown rice, chickpeas and lots of parsley. This is a one bowl meal we all enjoy everytime.

  • Becca

    Would LOVE to win a copy! My favorite vegetarian recipe right now is lemon/parmesan risotto with asparagus and peas :)

  • Nora

    My favorite vegetarian recipe has to be a fluffy confetti quinoa salad using crunchy vegetables in season and plenty of scallions and red wine vinaigrette. It’s one of those recipes that fits perfectly into almost every menu, and satisfies both vegetarians and omnivores alike.

  • Katie Pace

    I love to take pita bread and warm up slightly, brushing both sides with small amount of olive oil on a griddle. Then I top it with carmelized onions ,fresh spinach leaves,scattered
    over top. Then I top that with crumbled tomato and basil feta. Lastly,a light sprinkle of fresh parmesan goes on. then I pop it in the oven on broil,just acouple of minutes to brown or warm the top. They are wonderful !also, kalamata olives if I have them.

  • Diana B.


  • My favorite vegetarian recipe is to make a tomato sauce by pureeing fresh tomatoes, olive oil, and some salt and pepper in the blender, and then serving the sauce over linguine with a sprinkling of fresh basil and Parmesan. Easy and so delicious!

  • Ma recette cocoon végétarienne, c’est celle d’un dhal avec plusieurs sortes de lentilles. Certaines lentilles donnent du crémeux, d’autres restent fermes, elles sont toutes réchauffées par des épices et du lait de coco pour le coté cocoon. Voilà !

  • Tamsin

    I can’t wait to read your new book, there can never be enough vegetable cook books in the world! My favourite recipe at the moment is roasted seasonal veg tossed with lots parsley, lentils and lemon juice. At the moment I’m using fennel, cherry tomatoes, peppers and onions, in the winter I like carrots, swede and parsnips.

  • Nicole

    Dear Clotide,

    I’d be so excited to win a copy of your cookbook – I am a mostly vegetarian (though entering into my third trimester of pregnancy so i do definitely crave red meat on the menu some days!). Your book looks amazing though and perfect for starting a new family kitchen collection!

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is my grandfather’s Sicilian cauliflower sauce. We eat this every Christmas Eve alongside a fish-based sauce and the rest of our fish and seafood dishes. The base of the sauce is tomato paste and garlic. A head of cauliflower is cooked down until it melts into the tomato base and gives the sauce a chunky texture. We serve over linguini and top with a generous layer of fried breadcrumb. Not the healthiest meal, but one of my favorite family traditions!

    Thanks for the chance to win a copy of your book – looking forward to reading it!


  • The book looks absolutely gorgeous and I love the idea of the recipes in it!

    I have to say my favourite vegetarian recipe is the beautiful French ratatouille. For me, it is an easy to make dish that also reveals complex beautiful flavours once the ingredients mix together, and it smells greatly of sunshine and Summer.

  • Andrea

    I love this pizza my vegan husband makes: with sweet potatoes or yams, steamed kale or spinach and lots of cracked black pepper and chili flakes. SOmetimes I’ll add dabs of ricotta cheese to my half!

  • My favorite vegetarian dish to make is pappardelle of zucchini and summer squash in a simple extra virgin olive oil dressing with lightly sautéed minced garlic. It pairs nicely with a vegetarian Tomato Provençal.

  • Uschi E

    Oh what a wonderful book, and thanks for the great ideas with the giveaways.
    At the moment my favorite vegetarian dish is a salad from raw beets, radishes, apples, fennel, grapes, ingwer, mint…..mmmmhhhhh
    Kind regards from nuernberg, germany

  • Alicia

    Easy, my favourite vegetarian recipe is DHAL. I know it is simple but it is packed with flavour. I just need some homemade nan bread and I am happy.

  • Katherine

    I have this great veggie curry recipe I got from a Cook’s Illustrated issue some years ago. We change the veggies we use based on season and current preference, and it always makes a great meal.

  • Martha

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is Faith Durand’s Braised Spinach and Chickpeas with Lemon from!

  • susan steigman

    White Bean Soup (Fassoulatha)
    Ingredients (Makes 8 servings)
    • 1 pound dried white beans, soaked overnight
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 large onions, finely chopped
    • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
    • 2 large carrots, finely chopped
    • 1 quart water
    • 2 large ripe tomatoes, peeled and mashed, or 1 tablespoon tomato paste
    • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

    Cooking Instructions
    1. Drain beans and cook them, covered, in a large pot of boiling water until tender, about 1 1/2 hours. Drain.
    2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat. Sauté onions, celery and carrots for 3 to 5 minutes. Add water, the cooked beans, tomatoes, oregano, salt, cayenne and pepper. Simmer vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings.

  • My daughter is a vegetarian, and son used to date a Vegan, so we are used to preparation of veggies. We do a lot of steamed veggies, but my favorite is a non Vegan thing, just plain caprese salad – tomatoes (ripe from our garden now), mozarella, olive oil basil & balsamic.

  • This is really wonderful news! Being a vegan I have always liked the wide range of ways of preparing vegetables in French cooking, but sadly there are, as you say, very few French recipes that do not include animal products.

    I’m a huge fan of both kale and pasta, so while it’s extremely difficult to select one single favorite recipe I will choose pasta with a really creamy kale sauce. This dish is great to show those sceptical to kale what a fantastic vegetable it is.

  • Mia

    My favorite vegetarian/vegan recipe is garlic scape pesto–new to me since joining a CSA 3 years ago. It is easy to whip up and very flavorful. It can easily be vegan too!!

  • Ayelet

    As a mom to a picky child, I’m always trying to include more vegetables in our menus. One of my favorite recipes is a riff on your blog’s name – chocolate cake made moist with zucchinis. I make it vegetarian with oil and soy milk, and it’s always a hit!

  • Gerda

    It sounds like a great book! Would love to win it. My fave veggie recipe is a couscous salad mixed with rocket lettuce, feta, tomatoes and vegetarian ground beef (optional). The ‘dressing’ is the odd, but good mix of ketchup, ground pepper and cinnamon. Almost everyone loves this, even my non-veggie friends :)

  • Kai

    Ooh I’ve been looking for a vegetarian cookbook for an age! This looks fabulous. My fav veg dish is one my mum used to make when we were children, she still makes it for me when I visit! It’s indian and called khichdhi khari. Which is rice made with spot mung beans and spices with a yoghurt based soup, making the whole dish so watery, you have to slurp! :)

  • Natalie Bélanger

    Ma recette végétarienne préférée du moment est un ragoût de lentilles auquel j’ajoute des oeufs pochés au service.

  • Mara

    My fouvrite veggie recipe. Hard. I would say, carrots, springonions, white onions and garlic rosted with a bit oil and lemon and salt in the oven.

  • Monique

    My favorite vegetarian summer recipe is a stack of grilled tomato, zucchini and eggplant, filled with goats cheese, sprinkled with toasted pine nuts and dressed with a spinach pesto. So pure but full of flavour an colors!

  • Amanda Rafi

    En ce moment, j’aime une salade de pâtes aux brocolis, chou fleurs et carottes. J’aime aussi les falafels et toute recette aux pois chiches!

  • Ansley

    Wow! How exciting–

    My favorite vegetarian meal right now is black bean and zucchini quesadillas made with monterrey jack cheese, cooked by the oven broiler from Peter Berley’s cookbook “Fresh Food Fast”. They are simple to make, a good way to get some black beans into a meal and oh so delicious. The leftovers heat up beautifully in the microwave the next day too!

  • Gathe

    Ma recette préférée… mmh il faut rajouter “du moment” pour que je puisse me prononcer…! mais je dirai une grosse salade de sarrasin grillé avec des tas de bonnes choses dedans : fruits frais, fruits secs, légumes, fromage… c’est modulable à l’envie et au contenu du frigo, et c’est boon!
    Bravo pour le livre, j’ai hâte de le feuilleter en tout cas!

  • The book is beautiful, and I can’t wait to get a copy whether I win it or buy it.

    Our favorite go-to vegetarian meal right now are black bean and kale tacos with avocado “cream”. Doesn’t require the oven to be on, and it’s easy to throw together.

  • Rex Roof

    I have lots of favorite vegetarian recipes, right now it is:
    slices of zucchini simmered in salted water, puttenesca sauce, roasted potato slices. served mixed together it is a great vegetarian dinner.

  • Joanne

    Congratulations Clotilde! I look forward to working with it – whether I win the lottery or buy it myself!
    My favorite vegetarian recipe is Chinese Salad with Roasted Eggplant from the Green’s cookbook by Deborah Madison and Edward Espe Brown. You can see a good version here.

    I usually modify the salt way down from the original recipe, and often add pressed & cubed tofu for protein.
    The reason I love it is that it’s delicious, beautiful, great for parties, and while it has lots of moving parts, is basically easy.

  • Another Clotilde

    My husband being Californian, our favorite meal is a wonderful dish of eggplant/almond enchiladas with refried beans and Mexican rice, topped with avocado and Cholula hot sauce. Even our one-year-old stuffs his face with it!

  • Erin

    Being a vegetarian for about five years now, I have to say that choosing my favorite vegetarian recipe is incredibly difficult! Even more so, because I have always been reckless in the kitchen and don’t use recipes so much as techniques–many dishes, like crostini, risotto, soufflé, casseroles, etc., can be great featuring just about any kinds of vegetables.

    I guess one of my favorites that appeals to vegetarians, vegans, and omnivores alike, is the falafel sandwich–chickpeas, tahini, herbs and spices rolled into balls and fried, then put into a sandwich with lots of fresh, crunchy vegetables and tahini sauce.

  • Christa

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is a pasta sauce with roasted eggplant, grape tomatoes and lots of garlic. Pureed with basil, pine nuts and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Tossed into a bowl of thick chunky pasta! Served with grilled garlic bread and fresh salad.

  • Janet Morrissey

    Right now, my favorite is a nice big Insalata Caprese.

  • Congratulations on your new beautiful book! A recipe I really enjoy (and so do my clients) is a crunchy quinoa topped with a poached egg and asparagus roasted with a hint of balsamic. Top it all off with a few shavings of parmesan and a drizzle of truffle oil (if I’m feeling decadent) and you’ve got a perfect meal. Good luck with your book! I’m sure it’ll be a big hit.

  • Patricia

    Anything that mixes beans, greens and “hot” spices!

  • Bonjour, j’aime particulièrement un mélange de pommes de terre et pois chiches au lait de coco et aux épices :-)

  • Lauren

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is Asian flavored stuffed portobello mushrooms. Onion, garlic, ginger, swiss chard, sesame oil, tamari and panko bread crumbs inside cooked portobellos. I could eat it for every meal!

  • arwa

    cook leeks and mushrooms and butternut squash in olive oil serve with a side of hummus and some carrots to have something crunchy

  • Allison Campbell

    Oh, my favorite recipe changes with the seasons, but currently it’s ratatouille in the slow cooker, with whatever veggies my CSA basket provides that week. Over polenta or pasta. Sometimes spicy, sometimes mild.

  • Mayara

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is lentil soup =)

  • Allie Whiteley

    It’s a classic – ratatouille! I use the version in my Mum’s antiquated old “Stork Recipe Book” (New Metric Edition, no less!!). Such a tasty dish and so easy. I’ll even put up with peeling tomatoes to do it. I love to make it to have as a topping for jacket potato and find that it’s a favourite with children, too, which is very handy!

  • Elaine

    Chinese scallion pancakes and Chinese cucumber salad.

  • Ann

    I’m in love with baked eggs with vegetables right now. Eggs baked in a bed of sauteed spinach and onions, then draped with garlic-infused Greek yogurt and anointed with chili oil. I can’t get enough!

  • My favorite vegetarian recipe
    Cous cous with pine nuts and mint.

    Add boiling water to 2 cups cous cous and leave to cook. Fluff lightly with a fork.
    Add 1 cup pine nuts to 2 tbsp butter in saucepan and cook until lightly browned. Throw butter and pine nuts into cous cous. Stir and fluff.
    Clean and strip 2 cups of mint leaves. Cut finely and add to pine nuts and cous cous.
    Serve. Simple and delicous.
    Serve with roasted vegetables and a green garden salad.

  • Pamela Plymell

    Anything with Asparagus.

  • MM

    Your Nutella ice cream is a favorite in my house. Wonderful!

  • Heather

    So excited for you! One of my favorite vegetarian recipes is tabbouleh with a twist, (garbanzo beans, feta and pesto) Perfect for summer! Thanks for the giveaway…

  • My choice is probably not very original, but I could die for the homemade falafels and hummus! These two are the perfect match and I made them weekly now.
    I am so glad your book is ready to buy and I will definitely get a copy for myself if I’m not lucky with the draw.

  • Hélène

    Hey Clotilde!
    Congratulations for the book, and thanks so much for the giveaway… I’ve also been veering towards vegetarian meals those last few years, mainly out of concern for the lack of accurate information regarding the origin of the meat/fish I could buy in my little neck of the woods.
    My favorite vegetarian recipe so far is actually a very simple, inspired of one of your former posts: a “petit épeautre” (spelt?) salad with feta cheese, lots of diced, crunchy vegetables (which ones depends on the season), and a dressing including young onions, soy sauce and sesame oil.
    Thanks again for the giveaway, and have a nice summer!

  • Cynthia

    My favorite veggie dish is couscous with lentils. Vegetable broth, garlic, onions, tomatoes, carrots, de Puy green lentils, peppers, sometimes potatoes, with lots of curry & some chili powder (or piment d’Espellette when I have it) served over whole wheat couscous with a dollop of crème fraîche on top. Yum!

  • Lisa

    I enjoy making vegetable spaghetti. I tend to use carrots, zucchini, yellow squash as a base and sometimes add bell peppers. I use a mandoline to julienne the vegetables lengthwise. I quickly saute them with a hint of olive oil and some garlic and fresh tarragon. It takes but only a minute or two. Then I plate and top with freshly grated cheese and some lemon zest. It’s so easy to twirl like pasta, but healthier and tastier as well. It’s an easy foundation for adding the protein of your liking. :-)

  • Congratulations, Clotilde!
    My favorite vegetarian recipe? It changes all the time, but currently: fresh fava bean falafel with tahini sauce. Healthful and with a Middle-Eastern touch. Yummy!

  • Nadia Jaber

    Ratatouille !!!!! Ca me fais penser a ma mere.

  • Congrats on the cookbook release! It looks gorgeous!
    My favorite vegetarian recipe is built to be pure comfort food, eaten with a spoon: roasted and stewed vegetables and legumes, whether a stew or curry over rice or goulash over pasta. Hearty fare that can be eaten warm or cold. Topped with toasted nut slivers or cheese. Beautiful and bountiful!

  • Jennifer

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is homemade pizza! Spinach, mushroom, fresh mozzarella, onion, and an egg on top.

  • Abigail B.

    My favorite vegetarian dish is a salad we make at the restaurant I work it: the Insalata Cotta e Cruda (or the cooked and raw salad). Our version has grilled eggplant, button mushrooms, zucchini, red peppers, potatoes and green beans, with fresh fennel, basil, marinated artichoke hearts, garbanzo and cannellini beans, vinaigrette and shaved parmigiano. Simple ingredients, complex flavors, fabulous taste.

  • I would love a copy! My favorite vegetarian recipe is for a leek quiche. Breakfast, lunch or dinner – hot or cold – it never disappoints!

  • Kaye

    I suppose my favorite vegetarian recipe is whatever I ate last … most recently I had a wonderful vegetarian lasagna in a Charente restaurant, seasonal veggies between layers of noodles, nicely spiced, without heavy sauce or cheese. Yum!

  • Melanie

    I have been vegetarian for 22 years now, my husband 14 years, and we are raising our children that way as well.

    My favourite recipe is always one that makes my husband exclaim, “I would order that in a restaurant!” Recently, his declaration came from a spur-of-the-moment concoction of quinoa, du Puy lentils, cucumber and grape tomatoes tossed with a garlic-infused apple cider vinaigrette. It was too hot to cook much, and that seemed like it would generate the least amount of heat. He loved it! Always makes me happy to cook for him. Merci !

  • Mippy/Sabrina


    My favorite vegetarian recipe is a tie between a vegetarian lasagna and vegetarian pizza. Love both! I probly prefer a vegetarian pizza with all the veggies I can fit on there without making it soggy. :)
    Thank you for the chance! I don’t believe I have ever tried to make a French recipe.
    thank you again for the chance!

  • Kim

    Sweet potato and black bean burritos mixed with just the right mix of fresh herbs. Yum!!

  • Lisa McClintock

    Since it is summer, my favorite vegetarian recipe of the moment is a wonderful raw zucchini salad. You just cube the zucchini, add some fresh dill and feta cheese and then toss it with a dressing made with olive oil and lemon juice. If you don’t plan on eating it all on the same day, only toss the dressing with the amount you plan on eating or the zucchini will be squidgy the next day! So great for the (over) abundance of zucchini this time of year and you don’t have to cook in the heat. 106 degrees in the Sacramento Valley today! Love your blog!

  • Andrea BRYMAN

    My favorite vegetarian recipe right now is tofu and black bean enchilada casserole. Whole family eats it, relatively low cal and full of protein!

  • Lissa

    My favorite is a pasta dish with Nero di Toscana kale, cauliflower, pine nuts, currants, onions, and lots of garlic from the Lucques cookbook. So delicious!

  • Anna Tuckett

    My favourite recipe is a summer salad: chickpeas, caramelised onions, feta and lots of coriander. Brilliant with a barbecue (veggie or not).

  • Yulie

    The book looks fantastic! Congratulations, Clotilde, it must be such a thrill to have the result of such a long process in your hands.

    I’ve a vegetarian for most of my life, and all my recipes are vegetarian, too. So to pick one – I’ll go with green pasta: I parboil and then sauté whatever green vegetables are in season/on hand in olive oil, and combine with pasta (penne works well) and pesto sauce.

  • I adore fresh hummus made in my blender. I use it as a dip for cut up carrots, celery, zucchini and red peppers. No better lunch around

  • Christina

    Chocolate & Zucchini Cake.
    I have the sweetest sweet tooth and this gives me a boost to continue eating healthy. :) I have been a vegetarian for over 10 years & need to be inspired to cook. I love getting your updates on Facebook and wish you continued success!!

  • Jessica

    I love bruschetta!

  • Mélanie

    Merci pour ce concours !
    Ma recette végétarienne préférée du moment : un curry rapide d’épinards et pois chiche avec du garam masala et du lait de coco, servi avec du riz ou des chapatis maison si j’ai le temps.

  • shana

    so wonderful to hear about the new book! congratulations

    my favorite vegetarian recipe is from the Moosewood cookbook: eggplant and almond enchiladas. they take some time to prepare but are well worth it :)

  • Katherine Patton

    I love tarts, and have been experimenting with making a crispy crust out of thinly-sliced potatoes this summer. Pre-baked, it even holds a custard filling for a savory quiche. I just add cheese and fresh vegetables and herb from the garden…

  • Renee Jackson

    My favourite vegetarian recipe is spinach and feta quiche. So simple and delicious. Though in this heat I think Thai Salad wraps are a close second.

  • I love summer tomatoes Provençal slow roasted with Jeeves and evoo. It’s great with fish or poultry, so simple and divine.

  • Glenda McKenzie

    In this part of Canada, we experience alot of winter (usually more than 6 months) :( so in our house we make soup often. Our favorite is squash (or sweet potato or pumpkin), with kale, onion, maybe peppers or beans – and depending on the mood, it may have an Indian influence with curry or a Mexican flavour, or whatever the cook can use up. Would LOVE your cookbook (long-times followers!)

  • I have so many favorite vegetarian recipes, but one of my go to recipes that pleases both vegetarian and meat eaters are summer grilled vegetables (red peppers, yellow & zucchini squash, mushrooms, egg plant, carrots, and onions) tossed in couscous with a simple dressing of extra virgin oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper. Just before serving I top with fresh basil..

  • Therese

    My newest favorite veg recipe is Chana Masala. I was fascinated by all the spices the recipe called for: asafetida, cumin seeds, gram flour, ginger paste, coriander powder, turmeric, amchoor, and garam masala among others. I had so much fun shopping at our local Indian market and then tasting each one before putting it all together. There’s nothing like the excitement of a new recipe and the satisfaction of having made a great dish! Cheers!

  • Charlotte Tolonen

    Hmmm favorite vegetarian recipe? Hard to say, I was a strict vegetarian for 13 years. I guess I’d have to go back to my favorite meal my 12-year-old self loved enough to give up meat entirely – it was at the Bagel Bakery in Carmel, CA, they offered a freshly made NY-style bagel with mustard, an thick smear of smashed avocado, sprouts, pickles instead of onions, and provolone cheese. I could eat one every single day. Since then my tastes have grown more sophisticated, but I still cherish that memory.

  • Cherie Charbeneau

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is one I make in late summer when the Farmer’s Market is full of ripe tomatoes. I use peanut oil and saute sliced yellow onion, and minced garlic. When it is fragrant I add lots of chopped fresh tomato, then green beans, sliced to a bout 1 inch, and chunks of potato and cauliflower. If it is not very soupy I may add a little water, tamari and fresh ground black pepper. Cover and let it stew for a half hour, then serve over rice, farro or your favorite grain.
    Like late summer stew in a dish.

  • Mariam

    Hey Clotilde

    Your book looks so inspiring! My favourite vegetarian dish is Avial from South India. It’s a delicious concoction of vegetables cooked in yogurt and coconut fragranced with coconut oil and curry leaves. I’m drooling just thinking about it!!

  • Michele

    this is kind of a “cheater” recipe, because it’s so simple, but my all-time favorite vegetarian meal is a big tray of roasted (or grilled) vegetables. I usually fry an egg to throw on top, or sprinkle hemp seeds/add beans/tofu for some protein, but that’s it! Oh! and lots of hot sauce :)

  • Allison

    My favorite veg recipe for the summer is a hummus and tomato pita with red onion and dill havarti. Very summery!

  • My favourite vegetarian meal is usually a large spinach or arugula (or both) salad with beets, carrots, tomatoes, and feta with olive oil and lemon juice. Simply delicious!

  • Delene Volkert

    My favorite vegetable recipe is a zucchini gratin, with fresh tomatoes and goat cheese. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it :-)

  • My very first recipe that I learned over eight years ago is still my most favorite ~ I modified my mothers’ chocolate zucchini cake recipe into a vegan / gluten free version that I could share with my friends. I must admit that it took several attempts to get a true ‘cake’ like sponge; but very fun tasting all of the ‘disasters’ !

  • congrats on the book!

    my favourite veggie recipe is beetroot, farmers cheese and herb galette. love it!

  • Cindy K

    Anything in a thai curry sauce. Yesterday it was summer squash, zucchini, and carrots topped with cashews and served with brown rice.

    (Love your stuff. I still throw your book on Paris restaurants into the suitcase every time we go.)

  • Amanda

    Congrats on your book! That is exciting:) My grandma has passed on her white bean soup recipe to me which is very good but I have to say falafal is my favorite. Its good baked but fried tastes even better of course. Its so easy and delicious to make that with some rice and a yogurt sauce. I just use plain yogurt, garlic, tomato, cilantro and anything else Im in the mood to throw in.

  • Probably my fave veg treat is a fragrant, spices hot chickpea dish with lots of greens, lots of herbs and a touch of homemade feta. To die for!

  • Blanka

    I love meatless meals but my husband isn’t into a vegetarian lifestyle. In compromise, we always do Meatless Mondays and one of my favourite dishes is Mushroom Bourguignon. Saute 2 pounds of whatever kind of mushrooms you want, add some onion and garlic, red wine and vegetable broth with some tomato paste and seasonings, then simmer until you have a nice rich sauce and serve over hot noodles. So divine!

  • Congratulations on your new book! What a great accomplishment. My favorite vegetarian dish is a melange of sauteed vegetables–whatever’s in the refrigerator, really although things like red peppers, zucchini, carrots, artichoke hearts, and greens are at the top of the list–and chickpeas, served over Israeli couscous and garnished with plenty of fresh parsley or basil. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity!

  • Marie-Claude

    Bonjour Clotilde!
    Je suis ton blogue depuis quelques années. C’est en fait depuis ton passage à l’émission de Josée di Stasio (de Montréal). J’adore le brin de fraîcheur que tu apportes à tes recettes. Mon premier livre de recette végétarienne était celui du resto Moosewood. Et ma recette préféré de tous les temps est un risotto au feta et asperges (et c’est en plein la saison), rehaussé de jus de citron… il est bon chaud et moelleux, et même froid avec de la salade!! Je serais vraiment honoré de gagner un de tes livres, surtout que ton tirage se fait le jour de mon anniversaire, le 9 juillet!!! Au plaisir,

  • Jodie

    Roasted Savoy Cabbage has been the hands down favorite since you posted the recipe. We love it so much it’s become a weekly dinner (and lunch if there is any leftovers). I ran right out and bought savoy cabbage seedlings to plant in my jardin this summer! This cabbage will be gone soon so I am grabbing it whenever I see it. Merci beaucoup!

  • Sue

    It is a cold winter here, so at the moment, my favourite vegetarian recipe is a huge, hot steaming bowl of minestrone, mad with a bean base. Yum!

  • Jim

    This is my wife’s recipe. Her name is Sandra, so we have referred to this for decades as the Sandorf salad. It’s very simple:
    Equal parts 1″ (2.5cm) chunks of cantaloupe melon, Granny Smith apple and avocado. Sprinkle with lemon juice. C’est ca!

    * The melon and apple share a similarity of texture, ~ crispy, while the avocado is soft.

    * The apple and avocado share a similarity of color, while the melon is on the opposite side of the color wheel.

    * The avocado and melon share a similarity of subtle flavor, while the apple’s tartness is anything but subtle.

  • Deb

    Hello Clotilde. Your book looks very beautiful. My favorite vegetarian dish is very simple. Broccoli, spinach and baby carrots or beets steamed lightly and tossed in goats cheese then sprinkled with crushed nuts.

  • TJ

    Looks Yummy!! One of my favorites is Coconut Curry Tofu.

    I have many favorite recipes, but my favorite right now is Green Pesto Sauce. I combine with goat cheese and use on crostini, or on potatoes, pasta, etc. The Green Pesto is made with boiled Chard and/or Kale and is combined in a food processor with garlic, hard cheese (like Parmesean), nuts, olive oil and salt/pepper. Kind of like traditional pesto, but made with any cooked greens you have on hand. Delish!

  • Tracy Treville

    Congratulations et Bravo! My favorite vegetarian recipe is baby spinach salad with orange segments, beets, chickpeas and quinoa – topped with a simple raspberry vinaigrette.

  • Tracy

    Bonjour ! Ratatouille est de loin mon préféré plat français. J’adore ma coupe légumes et couche dans un cercle pot en terre cuite, ronde et ronde et parsemer de fines herbes de provenance et frais écrasé les tomates cerises! Et laissez-le rôti. Mon fils, qui a étudié le français et j’aimerais lui faire un plat de votre livre une ou deux fois par semaine. Néanmoins, je vais continuer à lire votre blog et pratique avec toutes les superbes plats que vous créez !

  • PJ

    My favorite veg recipe is one I found on Smitten Kitchen. It’s basically roasted cauliflower and potatoes with cumin seed stirred into sauteed ginger, garlic and jalpeno. Vary to one’s heart’s delight.

  • Maurine Fischel

    Probably my favorite vegetarian recipe is Ratatouille…and I love this time of the year because the ingredients are just about at their prime! In fact, plan on making some today.

  • Lynn

    Congratulations on the new book–I will have to make more space on my already laden cookbook shelves.

    Favorite vegetarian recipe? How does one choose? Here is one that never fails to leave me happy, nourished and comforted: White beans and Escarole. Caramelize the onions, add the garlic, wilt the greens, red pepper flakes,freshly squeezed lemon–after the beans have been added. Finished with a swirl of good olive oil. A heel of crusty bread. What more could one want?

  • Patti

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is potato and onion perogies.

  • Gabrielle

    My favorite all-veggie meal is curried lentils with the “kitchen sink” approach– tomatoes, peas, okra, potatoes, rice, cauliflower, spinach, and beet greens have all taken turns in the pot. Comfort food.
    Going from vegan to vegetarian, my whole family could eat our weight in caprese. We’re currently stalking a garden full of green tomatoes… any day now!

  • Mary

    Hands down, the best vegetarian recipe for me is anything with butternut! My favorite being a simple butternut soup with a bit of curry powder stirred in just before serving…yum.

  • I have quite a few favourite vegetarian recipes, but at the top of my list is pizza. During the summer I make it with a pesto of herbs from my own garden. It changes a bit each time I make it, but it can include any or all of the following: basil, thyme, sage, cilantro, chives, parsley, rosemary, summer savory. Make pesto the usual way in the food processor, with chopped garlic, olive oil and either chopped walnuts or pine nuts. Spread over naan bread or pita. Add spinach leaves and/or tomatoes (also fresh from my garden). Sprinkle with shredded cheese (this varies from day to day. Bake in a hot oven on top of a pizza stone.

    This is a satisfying meal in any season!

  • Christina

    This book looks incredible. Its really hard to say what my fav veggie recipe is because i love all veggies! A ratatouille is yummy but anything with garlic, onions and tomatoes is DELISH! I cant wait to read your book!

  • Cannot wait to dive into this book! My favorite vegetarian recipe are quinoa patties – basically a mixture of quinoa, hazelnuts, kale, whatever cheese is leftover in the fridge and then an egg and a little rice flour to hold it all together, form into balls and fry in olive oil. Topped with tsatsiki. Yum!

  • Danielle

    All of my recipes are vegetarian! My favorites are soups — so versatile, warm and comforting. I recently made a Mexican corn and poblano soup — amazing!

  • Emily Jones

    My family is vegetarian & currently a favorite is a simple curry! Made with whatever vegetables we have handy, hopefully some onion & basmati rice, coconut milk, etc. We all love it. Would love to win! :)

  • Nicole

    Fresh beets grated, mixed with a little bit of olive oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Also good with some green onion and herbs mixed in.

  • Carrie Cullen

    My favorite vegetarian meal does not need many ingredients. Avocado, lemon, olive oil and garlic processed together to form a creamy sauce for pasta, a dip for chips, a spread for crackers, or a filling for a sandwich! Thank you, and I hope I win a copy of your cookbook!

  • Sara Leigh

    Pizza made with flatbread spread with goat cheese softened with lemon juice and topped with caramelized red onions, garlic, and mustard greens.

  • Lara

    My favorite current recipe is an easy honey and balsamic marinara sauce with fresh basil. Makes up quick, and is delicious on noodles or toast or just to eat with a spoon!

  • Stacy Streuli

    I hope I win! My favorite vegetarian recipe is a curry I adapted from a “meat” recipe when I decided to use less meat in my life. It is a mix of zucchini, garlic, onions, and Quorn cutlets, all sautéed and then mixed with a curry sauce made with curry powder, veggie broth and cream, served over quinoa or couscous with cilantro/koriander and lime.
    Congrats on the book!
    Stacy in Switzerland

  • Cathy

    The book looks beautiful! My favorite summer vegetarian recipe is our version of garden rolls: rice paper rolled around romaine, cellophane noodles, slivers of carrots and cucumbers, mint, basil, cilantro and any other fresh veg that sounds good. We dip the rolls in either a peanut sauce or a red chili sauce. Such a flavor explosion!

  • Jaime Pedraza

    If you mean beyond ice cream, then my favorite dish is bruschetta with home grown tomatoes from my garden, basil and garlic from my garden, locally made French bread and olive oil.

  • Jill

    I am so excited to read your new cookbook, congrats! My favorite vegetarian recipe at the moment is chickory with cannellini beans. Adding just a touch of hot pepper flakes gives it a nice kick!

  • Hi there! As an Anglo French vegetarian, I sympathise with your pains about eating out in France. My favourite vegetarian dish is a Vietnamese one – lemongrass and chilli marinated fresh tofu, cooked in a light curry sauce with green beans and red peppers strips and plenty of thai basil and peanuts on top as a garnish.

    Congratulations on the book.

  • diana rosen

    It’s very hot here in California but this version of a stuffed tomato satisfies without making one feel loaded down: Baked tomato, carved out, filled with cooked quinoa mixed with scallions, chopped broccoli, a little lemon zest, S&P. This is the type of recipe that is wonderful for using up leftovers…bake at 400F for 15 minutes and sprinkle with parmesan, as desired, on top. Serve with seeded flatbread and grilled peaches…yum!

  • Stephanie

    What I am eating right now! Cantaloup, feta, basil, with a squeeze of lime and a dash of chili powder!

  • Amy G

    Tofu, pea pods, mushrooms, peppers, & broccoli stir fried then mixed with coconut milk & red curry paste over brown basmati rice.

  • LB

    My favorite vegetarian recipe varies so completely by mood and season. Tomatoes are just coming into season in DC right now, so I have been making a lot of spicy gazpacho as a light meal. If I want something a bit more substantial, I have been combining chunky diced tomatoes with fresh mozzarella, garlic, basil, olive oil, salt, and pepper and tossing it over a bit of whatever pasta is in my kitchen.

  • My three girls love to eat our latest vegetarian favorite with chop sticks. A chinese stir-fry with tofu, spring onions and mushrooms flavored with black bean sauce, rice wine and star anise.

  • kate reilly

    Recently diagnosed with an auto immune disease i have become semi vegetarian, no red meat , white meat 1x week, but eat fish, being winter i am loving warm winter salads made with brassicas, cabbage and lentils, i add nuts and seeds also. left overs can be put into blender with cup of stock for soup next day.

  • valerie

    Love your blog, cookbooks for all things French. Looking forward to seeing your vegetarian recipes! My favorite vegetarian dish is eggplant slices roasted in the oven with olive oil, served at room temperature, layered with yogurt cheese and chopped herbs and sprinkled with za’atar, maybe some walnuts or pine nuts. So good . . .

  • Kerry

    Zucchini and basil soup. So simple and so flavorful!

  • Oh my god!!!! MANY MANY CONGRATULATIONS CLOTILDE!!!!!!! I am so super happy for you! This news is amazing & you’re amazing!!! Love, T xx

  • Ann Young

    Kale chips.

  • Johndavid Bartlett

    I would just love to explore this cookbook. So, for your pleasure I offer a wonderful take on Brussel Sprouts. Toss a pound of trimmed sprouts with some basalmic vinegar, Xtra virgin olive oil, sea salt and a twist or two of freshly cracked pepper. Roast on a heated pan for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. Add roasted walnuts and dried cranberries. Serve hot or room temp.

  • Would love a copy of your new cookbook!

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is a one-pot quinoa and kale dish, with a dressing of toasted pine-nuts, lemon peel, lemon juice and olive oil and goat cheese sprinkled on top. Pure comfort food.

  • Allison

    I don’t know if I have a favorite recipe per se… but I do love tossing together a fresh salad with whatever vegetables (and sometimes fruit) I bought at the market recently! To make a meal out of it, I’ll add wheat berries, farro, or barley, and maybe cheese or sauteed tofu.

  • Joy Wotherspoon Hoppenot

    Congrats on the book, Clotilde. It looks gorgeous. Favorite vegetarian recipe–that is too hard! This time of year for BBQs and picnics, I love this carrot salad from Smitten Kitchen.

    I often change it up depending on what spices and herbs I have on hand (grind up fennel and coriander seeds instead of carvi and cumin; thinly sliced sorrel for part of lemon juice)–I’ve gone in Mexican and Thai directions instead of the Harissa spice as well. This recipe is very adaptable!

  • Congratulations!! You book looks just divine and I can’t wait to dive in. Thanks for this fun giveaway to celebrate! I adore vegetables and have loved explored all of the different ways that they are prepared with pasta since moving to Italy 6 years ago. Perhaps my favorite is pasta with garden fresh zucchini this time of year. Yum!

  • Suzie

    My favorite veg recipe is tabbouleh! I love that you can mix it up and use whatever is fresh and available. We make a new batch to have some handy in the fridge all summer so we don’t have to turn on the oven for a quick bite. I love to use couscous, tomatoes, garlic, onions, and lots of chopped mint and parsley, olive oil and lots of lemon juice. We also use different grains like quinoa or bulgur, and sometimes I’ll grate a zucchini or a leek into it for some added crunch. Yum!

  • g

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is anything with quinoa and spicy!

  • Charley

    Je pense que pour ma recette végétarienne préférée, rien ne vaut un énorme plat de papardelle ou de linguine, avec un assaisonnement maison à base de tomates, oignons, ail, pignons, huile d’olive et ricotta, miam!
    Hâte que la version frenchie débarque ici!

  • Victoria

    My favorite vegetarian recipe would be a curry. My husband (the reluctant vegetarian) will eat almost any vegetable when it is cooked in a curry sauce. I love a good Indian curry with mango chutney.

    Congratulations on the cookbook, it looks beautiful and sounds delicious.

  • Hester

    I am a huge fan of your blog and I would love to win a copy! My favourite vegetarian recipe is homemade falafal with pita’s and ‘white sauce’ ( that is how my kids name it): the falafal is made with broadbeans and chickpeas, with kumin, garlic, coriander, some chilli fresh flatleave parsley and sesame seeds. Put it all in a blender together with and egg, salt and pepper and form little balls. Roll the balls through some flower and leave them in the fridge for an hour. Fry them in oil and put them in a hot pita with white sauce made from crème fraîche, limejuice and salt and pepper. If you are a garlic fan put some in the sauce. This is how I taught my children to love broad beans. Something they didn’t want to eat before…

  • Carol Sabean

    My favourite recipe (vegetarian or not)is ratatouille. Hot, warm or cold it is always a wonderful meal.

  • Carlene

    Congratulations on your new book, it looks beautiful!

    I’m torn about favorite recipes…I love eggplant anything and that includes ratatouille, eggplant parmesean, eggplant rondelles baked with a bit of homemade redsauce and mozza, etc…but these days my husband has been on a coleslaw making spree and each time his coleslaw is a beautiful burst of flavor..hard to choose just one favorite recipe! ;)

  • The books looks very quality, honest and delicious!
    My favourite easy salad: avocado, mango and beetroots from my blog

  • Louise

    Fattoush! A salad with multiple veggies and pitta bread is always a winner for me. And the first time i discovered the brilliance that is the marinated portobello mushroom burger was a life-changer of a day. Ooh, and nothing beats the simplicity of a whole baked sweet potato dusted with cinnamon. That’s my ultimate winter comfort food.

  • i love a plate of rice and lentils, and some green vegetable to go with it. simple and complete.

  • Jim

    The comment recipes here are beginning to constitute a vegetarian cookbook themselves!

  • After my husband changed his life with plant based living just over a year ago, I’ve been trying recipes. I’m a foodie and LOVE good tasting food. Only problem was changing to a whole new way of eating. NOTHING tasted good to me. I started to get depressed but then I came in contact with several bloggers. This summer I am working on plant based living. My favorite recipe to date is Chef AJ’s Unsloppy Joes. I had no idea I could eat so healthy and omit the meat. I must admit that I also like just fruits, lots of salads and OH how I love grilled veggies. All because of those like you who share recipes and tips for those like me who transition from meat and potato meals to a healthier plant based option so I can live to see our daughter get married. Thank you!

  • Alice

    I love roasted red pepper sauce and penne. I’m making it tonight!

  • Trish

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is Lentil Potato stew. Lentils, diced potatoes, tomatoes and garam masala. Very good any time of year.

  • Megumi

    Ça c’est couscous avec des tomates, oignons, aubergines et champions en plein d’épice qu’un ami gourmand a fait pour ce dimanche!

  • Teresa

    My very favorite vegetarian dish is a vegetable lasagna I’ve been making since I was a teenager. I tore the recipe out of an issue of my mother’s Better Homes and Gardens. It features ricotta, mozzarella, zucchini, and spinach, and is absolutely delicious. Since making that lasagna (over fifteen years ago!), I’ve made many other types of lasagna, but that one is always my favorite.

  • I love my veggie couscous! that’s definitely my favorite vegetarian recipe… Good luck with the book!

  • Kelly

    Ooooh, my favourite has to be a salad of roasted baby beetroot, shelled boiled eda-mame, roughly chopped pistachios and some nice feta, all tumbled over pea shoots and dressed with white wine vinegar and some good salt while the beans and beets are still warm.

  • I like anything with koya tofu, that freeze dried Japanese tofu – it sucks up flavour like a sponge when you reconstitute it, I use it in nabe…It’s good for taking camping too!

  • Ginny Donovan

    Leeks and fennel in a cheesy egg bake, sprinkled with nutmeg. This is my adaptation of a published recipe. The kids love it–what more can I say?

  • Kelly B

    Bonjour ! My favorite vegetarian recipe is peppers stuffed with Israeli couscous, red & green orzo, baby garbanzo beans, and red quinoa (Trader Joe’s Harvest Grains Blend)cooked in vegetable stock and mixed well with veggie crumbles (Boca, Lite Life Smart Ground or home prepared crumbles from thawed frozen tofu)fresh diced tomatoes and peppers, some garlic and Daiya mozzarella style shreds with some extra shreds to sprinkle on top. Once stuffed I bake them for 15-20 minutes at 375F.

  • Jocelyn

    My favorite vegetarian (and light summer dinner) recipe is eggplant roulades. I grill the eggplant then roll up with a good amount of goat cheese. I serve it with a salad of field greens and a delicious Dijon mustard and shallot vinaigrette. So good!

  • Rachel

    My favorite veg recipe is what I like to call Pasta Capri. Mix olive oil, red wine vinegar, crushed ripe cherry tomatoes, fresh sliced garlic, fresh basil, fresh ground pepper, and a pinch of salt and let it sit while your pot boils. Cook your favorite pasta and add it to the olive oil/vinegar mixture. Mix it all together and eat immediately. Delish! U can add in roasted veggies, red pepper flakes for kick and/or shaved Parmesan cheese if you like too. It’s one of our favorite summer meals!

  • Chandanit

    would love an autographed copy of the French Market Cookbook!
    My favorite vegetarian recipe is green pancake!

  • My current favorite vegetarian recipe is one of Mark Bittman’s for baked ziti with fennel, red onions, tomatoes, garlic, chilies and a bit of 3 cheeses. But tonight I’m trying to recreate a dish I just tasted in a restaurant for a grilled portobello mushroom burger with grilled kale, roasted tomato, red onion, smoked gouda and a basil aioli. If I’m lucky, that will be my new favorite! Been following you for a while, and we are definitely moving towards a more plant based diet so I am collecting more vegetarian recipes and would love to add your book to my collection.

  • Micaela

    Hi Clotilde! I’ve been a longtime fan of your blog and your writing — congratulations on your latest book! I couldn’t resist entering this giveaway. My herbed couscous with chickpeas, radishes and ricotta salata has been a perennial favorite dish, but I have to say that my all-time favorite is a simple beet millefeuille with goat cheese. Thanks so much!

  • Stephanie Doublait

    Hi Clotilde,

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is whole wheat spaghetti with a cream, chevre and lemon zest sauce garnished with lots of oven caramelized zuchini and cherry tomatoes and toasted almonds. Mmmmmmmm…..

    Can’t wait to get your book!!

  • Patty

    Baked tuscan Kale with a mushroom, onion, and coconut milk sauce

  • Chelsea

    I’m really excited for this book! I eat vegetarian most of the time, and since I’m allergic to milk I’m also always on the lookout for good vegan recipe ideas.

    One of my favourite recipes at the moment is kale salad.

    I slice the kale leaves into thin strips (like coleslaw) and then mix up a dressing borrowed from another favourite recipe:
    1 small clove of garlic (finely minced)
    1 tsp maple syrup
    1 tsp Dijon mustard
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    2 tbsp olive oil

    I love this salad as a side, but by adding some white beans or other legumes it could be made into a stand-alone meal.

  • TP

    Love this blog, can get lost here. I’m leaning more and more vegetarian. My favorite meal right now is a hand picked lettuce/mustard green salad with goat cheese and pickled beets. Add a fried egg to take it over the top.

  • Raquel P.

    Congratulations on a beautiful book! :)

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is… guacamole! :) I love avocados, and you can customize it so many ways. Can’t get enough!

  • Dustyloup

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is homemade veggie burgers with whatever beans and spices I have on hand and canned oyster mushrooms (and a little this and that to make it stay together)

  • Daphne

    chickpea salad is my fav.

  • Jojo

    All my recipes are vegetarian, so it’s difficult to pick one! But recently I’ve been loving sweet potato and black bean tacos. I usually think of eating sweet potatoes in hearty winter food, but these are lovely even in the hot weather I’m having now. Sweet potatoes, red onion, black beans, garlic, cayenne, cumin, a little crème fraiche, splash of lime juice. Perfect.

  • hazel

    My favorite vegetarian meal is a curried chick peas eaten with rotis or vegan tortillas! YUM!

  • Maria O’Brie

    Congrats on the book. I adore my vegetables and am enjoying lots of salads at the moment. My favourite recipe is one I have recently adapted from many different sources, a spiced spinach dish. Spicy and healthy!

  • Sandra

    Would love to have a copy of your new book! My daughter is a vegetarian . We could have fun cooking together:) Sandra

  • Congratulations on the new book! Cannot wait to read it!

    I love HUMMUS in most any form, including related dishes (FAVOSALATA, etc.).

  • erka

    My favorite recipe is lentils with spinach and a little of tomato sauce tossed with whole weat pasta Rusticcela

  • Neil Aird

    Clotilde, hope all is well with you and your family. I would love to enter your give away, but I cannot find a link to do so.

  • isabel

    my favorite is mujaddara… aka lentils and rice!

  • Roasted fennel with Parmesan cheese & breadcrumbs. So easy, so delicious!! Congrats on your new release!

  • wow, congratulations, that looks so good, and delicious!
    My favorite vegetarian recipe is my recipe of onion and leek quiche: I combined 2 Julia Child’s recipes to make my own, more healthy version, lol. Here it is.
    thanks for the giveaway, that would be a real treat to win your precious book.

  • My favorite vegetarian recipe is spinach quiche! :)

  • Susan M

    Butternut squash ravioli with sage. Or maybe ratatouille, which I learned from Mollie Katzen’s Moosewood Cookbook. Or maybe asparagus risotto…

  • Anne McDermott

    Lovely Indian aloo mattar – spicy potatoes and peas. My spouse is allergic to cow dairy products and eggs, so living in France could be a problem. So Asian food is what we mostly eat, plus good French food.

  • Bonny

    My favorite veg recipe — today — is a puttanesca sauce that I’m going to make tomorrow :)

  • Hi Clotilde!

    I’ve had your cookbook on my Amazon wishlist for months! I would very much like to have a copy- it looks beautiful. As far as my favorite vegetarian recipe goes, I’d have to say I love the recipe I have for lentil soup. It’s based on a family recipe and is super easy to make. Hearty, healthy, and full of flavor. Thanks for the giveaway, and great luck with your book!

  • my favorite veg recipe is: VEGETABLE STIR FRY.
    would love to have that book at my place and little tea house

  • Jennifer

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is one for braised lentils and sauteed winter greens which I got off of the Serious Eats blog. The flavors are great and its super easy, so its a perfect mid-week dinner.

  • tk

    lentil and tofu burgers

  • Suzanne

    Je fais une recette d’un chef québécois que mes invités sont toujours étonnés d’y voir des coeurs de palmiers. Un classique de ma maisonnée!

  • So many…hard to choose. I guess a fave would be so easy and tasty…quinoa, cherry tomatoes, cukes, fresh dill, sheep’s milk feta (from France!), a little olive oil and fresh lemon juice.

  • Neecie

    My favorite dish is the girl & the goat green beans.

  • Ann

    Your new book looks amazing. Can’t wait to devour it! My favorite vegetarian dish is a tomato, goat cheese, marinated olive savory bread pudding. Even better than making it in a casserole dish, is to make it in muffin tins so you have individual bite sized pockets of deliciousness.

  • I would love to win this! As it’s winter here my favourite veggo recipe is chickpea tagine, but it changes all the time! Book looks great!

  • richelle

    Congratulations on the new book. I have been looking forward o seeing it. It’s Hard to choose one but Roast beetroot risotto with goats cheese and thyme dressing is always delicious!

  • Alison Cawley

    My favourite vegetarian recipe at the moment is what I had for dinner tonight: an oven-baked pancake rolled around a filling of goats’ cheese, cherry tomatoes and basil. The pancake batter is baked first for 10 minutes, then rolled up like a Swiss roll with the filling inside. Sprinkle with Parmesan, bake for 25 minutes – delicious. Tonight I ate this with a warm salad of broad beans, asparagus tips and baby capsicum. Mmmm. I would LOVE a copy of your new book; my copy of your first book is coming apart from over-use!

  • I’m so excited for your book – and congrats on getting it all finished up! I love cookbooks like yours – the pictures are so beautiful and inspiring. It makes veggies EXCITING to eat! My favorite vegetarian recipe is a roasted tomato, tepmeh and avocado sandwich. Especially on toasted rye bread! Filling and super good for you!

  • Thank you, Clotilde.
    I am a long time admirer. Enjoy your style…your interests and focus are refreshing. Visited Paris a few times in the ’80’s, and look forward to other travels there in the future.

    My favorite recipe is quinoa with a Mediterranean feel…lots of parsley, mint and scallion, along with lemon zest, juice, pine nuts, currants and feta.

  • Mon plat végétarien préféré du moment c’est la soupe au pistou, que j’ai découverte récemment et dont je ne me lasse pas. Mes raisons de l’adorer :

    – c’est à la fois une soupe et un plat complet qui contient des légumes secs, plein de légumes frais, des herbes, des féculents et du (bon) gras ;
    – tout le monde aime ça, y compris les enfants ;
    – c’est un plat “à géométrie variable” qui permet d’utiliser plein de légumes différents et qui se prête à de multiples variations ;
    – c’est un plat “naturellement” végétalien, ce qui n’est pas si fréquent. J’aime l’idée de pouvoir préparer une recette traditionnelle et végétalienne ;
    – c’est facile, rapide et délicieux.

  • Stefanie

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is curried green beans and lentils. I don’t remember where I found the recipe, but it’s a staple in our house. I like it because it is nutritious and flavorful and I love the way the spices full our house and linger for a day after I’ve prepared the dish.

  • Céline

    En tant que française et quasi végétarienne, j’ai hâte de lire votre livre! Ma recette favorite du moment provient du blog de Clea : la salade de petit épeautre aux agrumes, à la grenade, aux pignons et à la feta. Tout se marie très bien ensemble, et le petit épeautre, ça change!

  • Kate

    My favorite recipe right now is a salad of fresh English peas, romaine lettuce, mint, pecans, a little parmaesan, feta with fresh lemon and a dash of olive oil.

  • Amanda

    Quinoa Pilaf: Red onion, quinoa, dried cranberries, toasted sliced almonds. Simple & delicious.

  • Mandy Davies

    Ooh how exciting a new book …
    My favourite recipe is inspired from a well loved paper back called ‘The Bean Book’ by Rosemary Elliot . It is a scrumptious ‘Butter Bean Pie ‘ lovely Lima Bean soaked and gently cooked and mixed into a cheesy sauce with a hint of chopped tomato and some onions melted in butter and poured into some delicious sour cream pastry case and covered and baked and served with a big green herby salad . Many times I have discarded the pastry and made a ‘gratin’ type topping …
    Congratulations …once again .. Mandy

  • Shanna

    My all-time favorite veg recipe is a summer caprese salad with tomatoes and basil from my garden!

  • Laura Graham

    Hello, I just came across your wonderful site 2 weeks ago, and I think I’ve made almost two dozen of your recipes. All delicious and had my family asking for more. There were barely any leftovers for the next day. As a person living and dealing with Crohn’s disease I struggle constantly with food especially meat. I tend to stay away from it and your vegetarian recipes are just what I need. Thanks again ! Happy Cooking!

  • One of my favourite vegetarian dishes is also one of the easiest. And it is comfort food! Potatoes!

    Wash them and scrub them and the cut them into wedges. Olive oil, a little finely chopped rosemary and bake in the oven until the outside is crisp and the center is soft. The sprinkle with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Dip in your favourite sauce. And get something cold to drink with it :-)

  • Susan

    My current favorite vegetarian recipe is a shredded Tuscan kale salad. Sometimes I make it with dried currants, grated or shaved pecorino romano, and pine nuts in a mustardy garlic-kissed vinaigrette; sometimes I swap the currants and romano for fresh pomegranate seeds and crumbled feta.

    How lovely to invite your readers to share their favorite veggie recipes–I’ll bookmark this page for all the delicious ideas. And I look forward to the book–congratulations!

  • msue

    Almost any vegetarian recipe would make me happy. I especially enjoy hummus, in particular a really lemony hummus with just the perfect amount of garlic. I also love roasted veggies of all kinds. Our go-to treat is roasted cauliflower, which I season with ras el hanout. Sooo good. The book is absolutely lovely, Clotilde. It is as beautiful as I knew it would be. Congratulations on a job well done.

  • Félicitations Clotilde,
    What a beautiful cook book!
    My favourite vegetarian recipe is a summery French staple- goats cheese flan with shallots, cracked pepper and nutmeg, accompanied by a mâche and herb salad with beetroot, cherry tomatoes & balsamic vinaigrette, sometimes with a little dish of sautéed chanterelles, yum!

  • simple summer eggplant
    slice on mandolin, lay out on towels, salt on both sides and let them sweat, then wash and towel dry. Heat a griddle (no oil) on it. Place the slices on top and cook on both sides till golden brown w. grill stripes. Remove to a platter, drizzle w. the best extra v olive oil and minced garlic. Tad of parsley and serve. :) yum

  • Madeline

    My favorite vegetarian meal is a simple salad with fresh seasonal vegetable, a creamy salty cheese, and a poached egg on top!

  • Cellabella

    I love angel hair pasta with olives, tomatoes, garlic, and lots of olive oil :)

  • Mariam

    Hello Clotilde!

    Congratulations on the book! In high school I had promised myself that as soon as I was living on my own I’d be making some of your delicious recipes regularly (8 years running and I still do). Good to know a book is available (lots of time spent cleaning spills off my laptop in the kitchen).

    The simplicity and general good feeling of whole foods and natural flavours makes me feel at home and I think you’re a lovely inspiration. Your fig and mozzarella warm sandwich has morphed into one of my favourite dishes… I use a pastry tart that I roll out, put pesto on, then fig jam, then lots of crumbled goat cheese and ground black pepper! In the oven at 425 for 15 minutes and it’s perfect. Paired with my French friend’s salad (avocado, buffalo mozzarella, and cherry tomatoes + balsamic and olive oil dressing avec herbs de provence). Nothing could be more delicious and satisfying. Thanks for always inspiring..

  • Mulan

    My favorite vegetarian dish is a slow-cooked concoction of tofu, bamboo shoot, green beans, carrot, bitter watermelon, and bean curd with coconut juice and soya sauce. They are light and tasty! This is my fav after slow cooked pork belly and eggs (thit kho trung).

  • Carolyn

    Garbanzo burgers! I will be bookmarking this post—- great dinner ideas! Congrats on the book.

  • Katherine

    Refried beans and brown rice, Mexican style!

  • Jennifer J.

    I’m so excited about your new cookbook, Clotilde! ^^ Congrats!

    One of my favorite vegetarian recipes is a Korean dish called japchae – which normally includes meat. But when I make it at home, I leave out the meat and it tastes wonderful. It involves cooking spinach, carrots, onion, shiitake mushrooms and garlic in sesame oil and soy sauce. Then you add that to these really neat-looking noodles called glass noodles (also called sweet potato starch noodles). Add some sesame seeds on top when you’re done and it tastes really good.

    Just peaking inside this cookbook it’s truly awesome. My favorite vegetarian recipe is a spring vegetable barley risotto. It’s lite and delicious.

  • Marc Sheldon

    Glazed carrots (gajar sabji), an Indian recipe. It has become our go-to recipe for accompanying a lot of things. Finger-licking good !

  • Bravo on what looks like a wonderful book. My favourite vegetarian recipe is chickpeas with red onion, garlic, parsley, olive oil and walnut vinegar. Our friends at our local restaurant in Tarascon, Provence, used to serve it with a green salad before every meal and it reminds me of all the good times we had there, whenever I make it.

  • Elise

    Right now I have two favorite dishes. Caponata with eggplant olives tomatoes capers cooked until the eggplant chunks melt on your tongue. Cold, warm or room temp, over pasta or by itself.
    Also wonderful bean salad with fresh cilantro chives scallions sliced jalapeño peppers and cron with a lime juice and olive oil vinaigrette Herbs fresh picked from my garden.

  • Karen Ryberg

    Would love a copy of your cookbook! Regardless of this contest, it’s on my Amazon wishlist.

    One of my favorite vegetable recipes is potato lovage soup. Lovage has a wonderful flavor and is rare in my area, but I grow it and it pairs wonderfully with potatoes.

  • anita wasan

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is for chickpea coconut rice with a side of fresh peas and cheese (mattar paneer)–absolutely delicious and so flavorful! I love serving this with naan bread and a nice lentil soup!

  • Charles Suggs

    Andelusian Gaspacho with fresh Cherokee tomatoes coming into season RIGHT NOW! After that has to be warm white bean salad with rosemary and parmigian cheese.

    Thank you so much for your blog and books and this Oklahoma boy knows where G. Detou is.


  • Lenore

    Baked portabello mushrooms stuffed with diced tofu, fresh corn, sliced scallions and oyster sauce.

  • Katie

    Stemmed portabello with about half cup fresh pesto & half avocado- bake 30 minutes. Yum!

  • Congratulations on having your newest book published, Clotilde! My favorite vegetarian dish is lentil soup made with parmesan stock. It’s absolutely amazing how rich and flavorful parmesan stock is! Lentils have such a pleasing texture, and they are so nourishing and satisfying. A little tomato paste and caramelized onion for sweetness, garlic and red chile flake for depth, starchy veg and leafy greens make lentil soup a complete meal.

  • Amie

    Veggie tacos and black beans are my favorite veggie meal. Also, most cake is vegetarian, which is a lucky thing!

  • LPF

    Not really recipes but my favorite vegetarian dish is frittata. My favorite vegan dish is stir fry (which I had tonight). And my son’s favorite is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!

    Congratulations on the book! I can’t wait to see it!

  • Mary Mornigstar

    A favourite from Canada has to be a salad of young spinach leaves,thinly sliced Bartlett pears, gorganzola cheese crumbled into it all with toasted pecans and dressed with a lemon vinegrette. Yum in a bowl. Always popular at pot luck dinners.
    Congrats on your new book. Looks divine.

  • Vickie

    I have a Vegetarian Black Bean Chile recipe that is delicious.

  • Sarah

    This book comes at a great time. My little family and I are having great success with our first veggie garden and could use some inspiring recipes. Our favourite vegetarian recipe us for can tomato tart/pie that has a pie crust base with roasted garlic spread on it topped with tomatoes and cheese and baked!

  • Michelle Brooker

    Ooh…fingers crossed I’m a lucky winner. Thanks so much for the chance ! My current favorite vegetable is roasted Brussels sprouts with maple syrup butter cut with orange juice!

  • Sylvia Korteling

    Wild Rice Saskatchewan Casserole: 1 rib celery chopped, 2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced; 1 cup chopped, uncooked carrots, 1 small red onion chopped, 1/2 tsp dried thyme, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1 cup uncooked wild rice, rinsed, 3 cups chicken broth. Saute above veggies over med.-high heat 5 mins; add thyme, salt, pepper, rice and broth. Spoon mixture into ovenproof casserole dish with lid; cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours until broth is absorbed.

  • Lynn

    Black bean mole with coconut couscous. My coworkers love it too!

  • Renuka

    My favorite recipe is a spiced tomato soup that is called rasam or charu. It is made with mustard seeds, hing powder, tomatoes, toor dhal, coriander leaves, and a special masala of ground spices.

  • sydney85

    Congratulations on your lovely book. It looks amazing.
    My favorite vegetarian dish includes couscous, endamame, golden raisins, almonds, shredded carrots and arugula.

  • My favorite veg recipe comes from my best friend, a lifelong vegetarian. It involves potatoes, tomato puree, cinnamon bark, cloves, black mustard seeds, cumin seeds, coriander, salt, chili powder, turmeric, ajwain seeds, sugar, citric acid, and a few more spices I’m probably forgetting. Comforting and warming and very much a loving embrace.

  • Coco Madeleine

    Congratulations Clotilde! I’m so excited about your new cookbook. A longtime favourite vegetarian recipe is a Portuguese dish from my childhood: a tomato-based stew of fresh spinach (or pursulane) with chopped onion and garlic. Once that’s all cooked, finish with the addition of fresh soft goat cheese and a poached egg (one per person). Fresh bread is all you need to soak up the stew’s tasty juices. Delicieux!

  • I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of your new book. I love the cover!

    One of my latest favorite vegetarian recipes is a brown rice bowl. It’s made from rice cooked in green tea, cultured cottage cheese, pesto, sakura cherry tomatoes, olive oil, a bit of smoked paprika and pecans. Yummy. Simple. It could be made with ww couscous or spelt as well.
    I have so much basil on my hands,right now, pesto is adorning everything.

  • ann

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is roasted chickpeas. I add spices based on whatever I’m craving that day. So simple but delicious!

  • Zoe S.

    I made my first pesto a few nights ago, and I can’t wait to make it again.

    …BUT I anticipate the Strawberry Tartlet with Breton Shortbread Crust will top any vegetarian dish, ever.

  • Kathryn

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is really a non-recipe. I cook beans or whole grains, chop whatever vegetables are in season locally, and throw them all together with a vinegar and oil dressing. Simple and delicious!

  • Georgia

    Although I am not a vegetarian, I do like veggies. I find myself eating more and more of them. My favorite is eggplant. I am always looking for new eggplant recipes.

  • Dionisia

    My favorite would be a quiche with lots of vegetables, like zucchini, squash, and spinach.

  • Ceecy Nucker

    There are so many, considering I’m an omnivore. For comfort food, it’s gotta be a recipe from Big John’s Beans–mac and cheese topped with thinly sliced tomatoes, French fried onions then baked beans topped with the ff onions. In summer, a fruit salad, maybe even with yogurt for a dressing. Grilled squash salad with olive oil and rosemary.

  • Kate D.

    Can’t wait to check out your cookbook! My husband and I just became vegetarians this year, and honestly we have never felt better. One of our favorite recipes is stuffed pepper enchiladas: green and red peppers halved filled with a mixture of quinoa, black beans, diced tomatoes, cilantro, and a hint of lime juice, then covered in enchilada sauce. Delicious!

    Thanks so much for this great giveaway. :)

  • Cris Carusi

    My long-time favorite vegetarian recipe is daal bhaat and saag tarkari, which I learned how to prepare when I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Nepal. Red lentils spiced with garlic, ginger, black mustard seed, cumin, turmeric and a bit of cayenne, served over rice, with a side of curried spinach and tomatoes.

  • Terry

    A polenta and Swiss chard tomato dish, with Roquefort on top.

  • my favorite vegetarian recipe is probably macaroni and cheese. :) not very exciting, but boy oh boy is it tasty!

  • I’m not sure I could pick a favorite vegetarian recipe! I only ate meat occasionally as a child, and chose to become vegetarian in my teens. I enjoy so many ethnic influences – Thai, Indian, Italian, Ethiopian, Mexican, Spanish, French – that I could MAYBE pick a favorite from each one!

  • Nico

    Probably my favorite go-to recipe when I want to impress and yet not spend all evening in the kitchen? Oven-braised fennel in thyme-infused stock. The whole thing gets topped with crispy bread crumbs rubbed with a bit of butter to add texture.
    Between the sweetness of the fennel, the light-but-savory stock, and the buttery-crisp crumb, it’s a dish that always surprises. Best served with some bread for getting into that wonderful broth!

  • Franko

    you will probably accuse me of trying to curry favor, but my partner reminded me when i asked him just now what my favorite vegetarian recipe is, and he said “the macaroni & cheese recipe with the spinach”. i laughed, but he’s right — your recipe that you posted (here: back in 2006 has become a house favorite. so that is my pick. i simply adore your first book (still need to get your second one, i confess), and i would really LOVE your newest one. thank you for offering this giveaway!

  • Alana

    My current favorite recipe is the saffron braised fennel from Vegetable Literacy. I’m going to tinker with to turn it into an incredible pizza topping for a grilled pizza potluck this weekend.

  • Sharon

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is eggplant lasagna. In place of noodles, there’s fried eggplant, which I love, but you still have all the goodness of lasagna with the cheese and sauce. And the “meatiness” of the eggplant more than makes up for not having meat! I’ve also tried this with kale and zucchini as that’s great as well!

  • Wendy

    Mine would be a pasta salad with chickpeas, feta, cucumbers, peppers and tomatoes with a sundried tomato pesto dressing!

  • Jo Anne

    I’m a fish eating vegetarian visiting France in October. I’d love to have this book! My favorite recipe is a very simple one. I cook a batch of lentils de Puy, then add chopped lemon, capers, and a lemon dressing. The tart, lemony taste pairs very well with salmon.

  • Izabella

    Hello! Would love to win this book!
    My favorite vegetarian dish would be right now the cous-cous with grilled vegetables, but it varies from time to time :-)

  • Lauryn Jeffries

    Both my mom and I recently became vegetarians, and we are working on finding more recipes so that we can add variety to our meals. This cookbook would be AMAZING. So far, my favorite vegetarian recipe is Goat Cheese Alfredo with red peppers. It’s kind of difficult to make, since goat cheese isn’t widely available where I live. Apart from the cheese, peppers, and pasta, the recipe calls for olive oil, onion, half and half, parigiano reggiano cheese, and garlic. Yummy!

  • Kaisa

    My favourite vegetarian recipe is zucchini pasta with almonds and lemon: so simple, so tasty.

  • mclemence

    Mine, at the moment, would have to be a delicious, creamy, but not to heavy celery risotto :).

  • Linkevica

    After spending 20+ years avoiding many vegetables, I’m slightly obsessed with them now :) Especially broccoli – nothing beats roasted broccoli florets. And I usually use only olive oil, salt and pepper.

  • Wow – love the idea of a vegetarian cookbook using the French Markets!! I’m not a vegetarian per say, but we love to eat many vegetarian meals and I’m always looking for tasty recipes! We have also found many friends who are vegetarians so nice to have some great recipes for entertaining. My fav. vegetarian recipe is a roasted corn, mango and mixed vegetable salad with a lime citrus vinagerette. Great for picnics, guests and fresh for the summer. Thanks for putting together such a great looking cookbook!

  • Lil

    Congratulations on your new book!

    I love roasted vegetables with a generous sprinkling of fresh thyme, which can then easily be served as it is, or mixed with pasta to make a more substantial meal (good for picnic too!).

  • Nicole

    My favourite vegetarian recipe is Rajmah (red kidney bean curry) with raita, accompanied with avocado with mustard seeds (a recipe of Heidi from 101 Cookbooks)and basmati rice.

  • Congrats Clotilde on your new book, it looks fantastic!!
    I have been really looking forward to it’s release and even though I would love to win a copy, I plan to purchase it soon regardless..
    I have been a vego now for 24 years and flourish on fresh wholesome food.
    My favourite recipe at the moment would have to be my kipler potato salad.
    Fry onions until golden, add grainy mustard and brown( or puy )lentils and warm through. To this add hot whole steamed kipflers..take off heat and mix in baby spinach leaves, watercress and red wine vinegar.season to taste.
    Place on serving plate and top with sliced boiled eggs and smoked almonds.
    All the best with the release of your new book Clotilde x

  • Mélodie

    Je tente ma chance, ton livre a l’air magnifique…
    Dire qu’elle est ma recette préférée, c’est un peu difficile car je suis tellement gourmande !
    Celle que j’adore et que je refais invariablement, c’est une recette végétalienne de dhal de lentilles corail (avec tomates concassées, lait de coco, bouillon de légumes, oignon, beaucoup de garam massala…) servie avec du riz et de la coriandre fraîche, c’est simple et tellement goûteux.
    Voilà… j’ai faim maintenant !

  • Daria

    Please let it be me! )

  • J’adorerais aussi gagner ce livre qui a l’air très beau.

    Ma recette végétarienne préférée du moment, est sans doute la salade de pommes vertes/oignons nouveaux accompagnée de petits sablés au parmesan et aux épices

  • Pauline

    Moi ce que je préfère ce sont les lasagnes ricotta épinards avec du parmesan et du fromage râpé

    Encore bravo pour tout ce que tu fais!!

  • Theresa

    Lately I’ve been making this salad. Takes some advance prep work, but then I can eat it for dinner several nights during the week. Cube some sweet potatoes, coat in olive oil and roast. Wrap some beets in foil and roast, then peel (rubs right off) cube and marinate in mustard vinaigrette. Cook some faro. Compose your salad with a bit of faro (like 1/3 cup, it’s not a base just a mix in) some sweet potatoes, beets, sliced radicchio, cubed avocado, sliced celery, sliced radish, sliced cucumber, good amount of dried dill weed. a bit of white balsamic, bit of olive oil, salt and pepper. You can add some toasted walnuts if you want. Soooo good, I never get tired of it.

  • Jo Green

    I love the Vegetarian Indian Thali plate. This is what I normally eat when I go out. Typical dishes include rice, dal, vegetables, roti, papad, curd (yoghurt), small amounts of chutney or pickle, and a sweet dish to top it off. Absolutely perfect meal.

  • Steph

    Félicitation pour ce livre qui a l’air très beau et que j’aimerais bien gagner =) Je ne suis pas végétarienne, mais je me retrouve de plus en souvent à faire des repas ou mêmes des journées sans viande. Les légumes m’inspirent beaucoup plus, avec toutes leur couleurs ! Donc pour qu’un plat végétarien me plaise, il faut qu’il soit bien coloré ! J’aime beaucoup un plat qui ressemble à un dahl indien, à base de lentille et d’épices mais je ne l’écrase pas en purée / soupe et j’ajoute plein de légumes : carottes, brocoli, fenouil, oignons et du lait de coco ! Ca fait un plat complet à manger dans un bol =)

  • jana

    I cannot cook (but would love to have this book for my boyfriend who is a great chef). So my favourite vegetarian recipe is very simple – strong Italian coffee with dry chilli pepper in it + piece of dark chocolate

  • titel

    Moi aussi je participe! J’ai vu votre livre hier en librairie, et je pense que je vais y retourner si je ne gagne pas..
    Difficile de choisir une recette préférée, je dirais qu’en ce moment (même si le temps n’est pas encore au beau fixe)c’est le taboulé avec du boulgour, dans lequel je mets menthe/persil/oignon frais du jardin.
    Et sinon, le dukkah que j’ai découvert grâce à votre blog : je ne peux plus m’en passer, un délice sur les carottes et betteraves fraîchement cueillies au jardin

  • Sylvia

    I’ve looked at your book on amazon and it looks great! Would love to have a autographed copy of it.

    My favourite vegetarian recipe is a spicy Sichuanese dish called mapo tofu. It’s traditionally made with minced pork but I usually omit it. It’s also very easy to make. First you cut the tofu into cubes and them steep in hot water. Then you fry chilli bean paste, black beans, garlic and ginger. Add tofu, stock, salt and pepper. Finish with a bit of cornflour to thick the sauce. Sprinkle with some chopped spring onion to serve.

  • AnnaL

    My favorite recipe is the classic ratatouille, with each vegetable cooked seperataly and for a verry long time!

  • Maud Fast

    Your book sounds lovely!

    Root vegetables in the oven is a standard favourite in our house. And grilled vegetabeles now in the summer, you can never have enough of those!

  • nosirette

    Bravo pour ce nouvel ouvrage…j’adore rai le feuilleter et y dégoter de nouvelles recettes.
    Ma recette veggie préférée est basée sur des céréales comme le blé, le riz, la semoule…ou légumineuses type quinoa cuites, mélangees avec toutes sortes de crudités, assaisonnées d’une vinaigrette et agrémentées de fruits secs. Yummy!

  • Rachael Pettus

    Favourite vegetarian recipe? A good ratatouille :)

  • Betsy

    It looks like a gorgeous book :)
    I’m not sure I can pick one favourite vegetarian recipe, as most of what I eat is vego!

    As it’s winter in my part of the world, I’ve been eating a lot of soup, and my latest happy discovery is the following pumpkin soup: pumpkin (half kent and half butternut), carrot, red lentils, a spoon of tahini, and coconut milk, with fresh coriander on top and a freshly baked sesame seed bread roll on the side :)

  • Noona

    I love to eat vegetables and fruit and my favorite dish is papaya salad!

  • Lili

    Ton livre a l’air super :) ! Ma recette végétarienne préférée est un bon hamburger avec des frites ! Dans l’hamburger je mets une galette de légume, de l’emmental, une rondelle de tomate et une rondelle de concombre, un peu d’œuf dur, pleins de mayonnaise et de moutarde, et il est parfait ! Mes amis, très sceptiques sur le végétarisme, en redemande !

  • My current favourite dish is probably oven grilled aubergine with pine nuts, pomegranate and a yoghurt/mint sauce on top. I usually serve it with some couscous.

    Congrats on the book! It looks really really tasty :)

  • Barbara

    Congratulations with this new book!

    My favorite vegetarian summer dish is a quiche/tart with zucchini, black olives, thyme and fresh goat’s cheese.

    I have just seen some flowers on the zucchini plants in our garden, so within a few weeks there will be one of these wonderful quiches. Together with a glass of crips Muscadet… I am looking forward to it.

  • marie

    Recette végétarienne préférée :
    des pâtes semi-complètes avec des carottes et des fèves fraîches.

    Félicitations pour le livre et bonne continuation.

  • Oh, hurrah! Congratulations and you’ve made my day with the French vegetarian cookbook. Due to meat allergies, I’ve been a forced vegetarian for over 20 years. It was a challenge at first, but now I love 99% of all vegetables and even grow them organically in my own garden.

    Pick a favorite vegetarian meal, eh? Whew – what pressure, hahaha. It would have to be a Lebanese inspired meal involving eggplant in many variations. My second choice is a simple and rustic Fritatta.

  • Dear Clotilde,

    I am thrilled to see your new cookbook! I have your translated “I Know How To Cook”, which I adore. I would love to win a copy!! Our favourite summer recipe is simple. Nicely sliced and arranged pieces of tomato and avocado sprinkled with chopped green onion and splashed with balsamic vinegar. Delicious!

  • eliane

    Bonjour Clotilde,

    Je profite de ce concours pour te remercier pour ce très beau blog plein de bonnes idées et de découvertes…

    Quant à ma recette veggie favorite, elle dépend bien sur des légumes du moment et du contenu de mon panier… mais quand l’été arrive, c’est toujours une joie de retrouver les aubergines. simplement coupées en deux et rôties au four, puis dégustées à la petite cuillère avec une sauce au yaourt!


  • I love anything with pasta! If I have nothing fresh at home and I’m craving for something savoury for dinner I like to make some Mac and Cheese ;).

  • Teresa

    Congratulations on your new book!

    I my favourite vegetable dish is a huge bowl of shaved fennel, orange and olive salad dressed with a citrus and olive oil dressing. Yum yum yum.

  • I love Mollie Katzen’s classic vegetarian book “Enchanted Broccoli Forest” and I love her recipe of the same name. A true Vegetarian Classic Recipe. I do a version of her recipe and I outlined it on my blog. I have an organic garden and grow broccoli every year. Melissa Abbott’s version of the classic Enchanted Broccoli Forest made famous by Mollie Katzen

  • Vegetarian dish would probably be pasta primavera. Vegan would be a berry galette

  • Roasted vegetables with garlic aioli. The book looks beautiful!

  • Congratulations! I can’t wait to have your book, I love your cooking so much :).

    My favourite vegetarian recipe is red lentil curry with pumpkin. Well, in summer I love my mum’s gazpacho!

    Greetings from Spain.

  • Maria

    Congratulations on the new book!
    So many vegetarian recipes to choose from, but I’d love to have more in your book. I recently made a goat cheese-asparagus tart with the last of the green asparagus. Simple and delicious.

  • Congratulations!! The book looks exciting and fabulous. I also love reading through everyone’s favourite dishes. It gives me inspiration! Right now, I’m loving my bowls – brown rice or quinoa, a variety of steamed or roasted vegetables, and pan fried tofu with a miso chickpea sauce. :)

  • Alexander

    I would love to win a copy. My favorite vegetarian recipe is mushroom risotto.

  • Rachel Firth

    I am very much looking forward to your new book, Clotilde. I have been a vegetarian for 27 years, and spend a lot of time in France (with access to a kitchen. Bliss!) so I’m particuarly looking forward to a book with French-friendly ingredients that’s also vegetarian.
    I know it’t not terribly imaginative, but my favourite all-time vegetarian dish is melanzane parmigiana (made with vegetarian ‘parmesan’ ideally!)

  • Meghan

    Favorite veggie recipe is Marcus Samuelsson’s Root Veggie Tagine, with plenty of harissa.

    It’s super delicious and a great way to use all the root veggies I get in my CSA box!

  • Anna

    My favorite light meal currently is a garden fresh Caprese salad with a thick slice of fresh bread. It’s so simple and delicious!

  • Ming

    Congratulations Clotilde! I love the coverage of your new cookbook. Pictures look very yum! My favorite vegetarian dish is from a local italian restaurant – baked egglant with tomato sauce and mozzarella cheese, sprinkle with parsley.

  • Nicholas

    My favorite for enjoying the hot and humid weather of Washington DC is a salad of ripe tomatoes and watermelon with just a sprinkling of salt and a dash of good balsamic vinegar. I sometime garnish with chopped mint or a chiffonarde of basil.

  • Mary

    Not that original but my favourite vegetarian recipe right now is the one-pan pasta dish making the rounds…

  • Sam

    I’m a frittata guy, and like one with lots of seasonal vegetables plus a few fresh local eggs. Delicious hot or cold, any time of the year!

  • Amélie

    My current favorite vegetable recipe is vegetable crumble, it is very versatile as you can change the kind of vegetables according to the season and really healthy with a rolled oats and goat’s cheese crumb…

  • JoAnn Lakes

    My favorite meal right now is a Mediterranean quinoa salad. It’s so refreshing.

  • Mischelle

    My favorite veg recipe is a kale, sweet potato, chick pea ragout I make with warm moroccan spices and sweetened with carrots and orange juice or honey. I guess you can say it is still in development as I have never made it the same way twice and just eyeball the amounts of each ingredient. I sometimes serve it over quinoa for a protein boost.

    I’ve been reading your blog for years and I can’t wait to get my hands on your book!

  • hatuly

    My favorite veggie dish is french lentil and chickpea salad with scallions and walnuts with an olive oil and lemon vinaigrette sauce. Perfect eaten cold or warm as a side or main dish. Yummy!

  • Bertille

    Le livre a l’air top ! Ma recette végétarienne préférée : faire griller au four une tranche de pain poilâne tartinée de miel et recouverte de fromage de chèvre, sur laquelle j’ajoute des tranches épaisses de poires revenues dans du beurre salé. Accompagné de roquette assaisonnée avec une vinaigrette à l’huile de noix, c’est divin.

  • Becca

    Mmm…this book looks delicious. Recently I’ve been trying everything in the river cottage everyday veg cookbook, but my favourite veg recipe lately is a spicy creamy brocoli gnocchi that I make with fresh chili from our garden.

  • Cléo

    Félicitations ! Il a l’air superbe en plus, un énorme plus avec la cuisine des légumes, pas toujours facile.

    Un plat que je ne mange qu’au restau, un dot sol bibimbop avec beaucoup de sauce piment-sesame… est définitivement mon plat veggie préféré !

  • Madonna

    Congratulations, Clotilde. I’ve ordered a copy of your new book and am anxiously awaiting its arrival in my mailbox. The timing is perfect. I’m ready to harvest the first eggplants, peppers, summer squash, and cherry tomatoes from my garden. I can’t wait to try some new recipes using all that homegrown veggie goodness.

  • Allon Bogin

    Love you blog.
    My favorite vegetarian dishes are:
    Tomato Bruschetta – simple yet the MOST (!)comforting meal
    Quinoa Tabbouleh with LOTS of greens and lemon juice
    Pizza Margarita – extra thin spelt crust

  • sillygirl

    Congrats on smooth sailing on your latest book! I’m not vegetarian but I’m cooking more and more vegetarian meals because they are so good. Our favorites include grilled cabbage with a little flavored vinagrette and another recipe with greens and white beans. I never thought my husband would like them – we both love them!

  • Erin

    I’m looking forward to your cookbook very much! I’ve been a vegetarian for 17 years and always need new ideas. My favorite meatless recipe is Green Pizza, with thin whole wheat crust and anything green you can think of as toppings. Usually it is: pesto, broccoli (blanched), peas, artichokes, and spinach. Then you add feta or goat cheese and mozzerella cheese, a little black pepper and crushed red pepper. So good!

  • My favorite vegetarian meals are tacos. I can throw in sweet peppers, hot peppers, zucchini, sweet potato, black beans, chipotles, or whatever else I find in my fridge. They are quick to put together and always delicious!

  • Megan

    I have been into simple roasted celery lately. LOVE

  • Samara

    I think I’m going to have to go with zucchini pesto: diced sauteed zucchini blended with olive oil, parmigiano reggiano, garlic, pine nuts, basil leaves, and salt to taste. I especially enjoy this with fresh pasta cooked al dente. Looking forward to discovering some new favorite vegetarian recipes through your book!

  • Meg

    It has to be the sag paneer which I’ve perfected since living in an area of London with instant access to fresh paneer and a wealth of spices. I sorely missed vegetarian curries when I lived in the less-cosmopolitan north-east of England.

  • brenda

    I like a sort of tomato-tarte-tatin:
    – cut a bunch of cherry tomatoes in half and toss with olive oil and salt
    – sprinkle a bit of sugar in a pie pan to caramelize a bit
    – put tomatoes flat side down to cover the pie pan
    – sprinkle pistachios or pine nuts, and capers on top
    – cover with pie crust and bake
    – flip pie over and serve warm or cold

  • Jen

    Summer tomato sandwich #1!! But that’s not much of a recipe I suppose so my #2 is pasta w/tomato almond pesto (pesto alla trapanese). Merci!

  • Sónia Barbosa

    Hello, I am a follower of the blog in Portugal. I do not know if I can consider this recipe as a vegetarian but here it is: Couscous, cowpeas, green and red peppers, tomatoes, black olives and feta cheese. Seasoning with salt, pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and many coriander Alentejo.

  • Ma recette végétalienne préférée est issue de la cuisine mexicaine: un taco dans une feuille de bette à carde ou de kale, un mélange de mini tomate, poivrons de toutes les couleurs, olives noires, beaucoup beaucoup de coriandre, jus de citron, huile d’olive. Je garnis le tout de tranche d’avocat et d’un mélange de noix de Grenoble mixées avec cumin, paprika, coriandre moule, huile.
    Merci! Et félicitations!

  • Janet

    mushrooms stuffed with orzo, tomatoes, basil, balsamic vinegar and sprinkled with salt and pepper!

  • Kika

    Bravo pour cette édition qui semble très réussi. Plein de recettes vegé favorites mais allez s’il faut en choisir une ça sera donc une magnifique pizza -pâte fine maison- aux aubergines grillées et mozza fumée maison. parsemez de roquettes, pignons, herbes fraiches, la spécialité du dimanche soir!

  • Christine

    Bonjour! I love your blog and I have enjoyed your first book so much! I have a daughter that has been a vegetarian for almost 6 years, so I am familiar with vegetarian cooking. It started out being very hard until I realized that there is so much “ethnic” cooking that did not use meat. So, we made pastas, stir frys, burritos, lentils, it’s all so easy! Our latest venture was Crispy garlic roasted kale! Awesome!

  • Stephanie

    Congratulations on your new book! If I don’t win one it’s going on my Christmas list for sure, I have loved your first book for years.
    My favourite vegetarian dish is pizza with roasted delicata squash, black olives spinach and mozzarella (with lots of smoked paprika on top).

  • Suzan

    My favorite vegetarian meal is a Turkish bulgur/red-lentil kofte served with fresh lettuce.

  • Julia

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is a hearty butternut squash soup made with an array of delicious root vegetables!

  • Alexa

    This book looks amazing, I’m really excited to try your pink pasta recipe. My favourite recipe is Vietnamese Pho with deep fried tofu, pak choi and mushrooms. Its a really yummy and easy week night supper-I end up eating it a lot!

  • Nathalie

    Bonjour, et félicitations pour ce nouveau livre. Je me décide à participer! Une de mes recettes préférées est la polenta à la sauce tomate – j’adoooore la polenta! On peut frire des carrés de polenta, et l’accompagner d’une sauce tomate avec huile d’olive, oignon, poivron et, éventuellement un peu de concentré de tomates + sel et poivre. Ce plat convient très bien aux enfants aussi, car la polenta en elle-même est plutôt fade, et la sauce peut être plus ou moins épicée. J’aime aussi beaucoup les croquettes au fromage (cheddar ou gruyère,avec carotte, persil, beurre d’arachide, oignon). Mais le sujet précise de ne parler que d’une seule recette…

  • Felicitas

    Oufff, c’est difficile. Il exist trop des recettes vegetariennes et delicieuse ;). Mon favorit: un reve en rouge (tartelette avec bettrave cru et feta, millefeuille de bettrave avec un creme roquefort, soupe de bettrave et des legumes anciennes) . Voila!

  • Annie

    My favorite vegetarian meal is whole wheat pasta with Sicilian pesto. The pesto is made with a pint of sweet cherry tomatoes, about 1/3 cup loosely packed basil, 1/3 cup lightly toasted almonds, a pinch of salt, a big pinch of pepperoncino, 3 cloves of garlic and a scant 1/2 cup of olive oil. Blend the first six ingredients in a blender until smooth (scrape the sides with the motor off). Turning the blender back on, drizzle the olive oil in until it is a lovely shade of pink and the consistency of mayonnaise. Serve raw over al dente pasta. No cheese needed! I never get tired of this dish. Enjoy!

  • Kathy K

    Just made my favorite vegetarian recipe last night – quinoa and black bean burrito bowl! Loved your first book – can’t wait to see the new one.

  • Anne Wilson

    Have been waiting for your book to come out. Congratulations! I am not a vegetarian, but love vegetables and vegetable-based dishes. One of my favorites for summer is a salad of chickpeas (need to be peeled), cucumber chopped and preserved lemon. It goes with everything and is light, fresh and unusual.
    Will be buying your book if I don’t win it!

  • Eva

    Wow, you’ve got so many readers :)
    My favorite veg recipe is a vitamin boosted quinoa salad with fennel, feta, radish, grapefruit and avodaco. It’s quite awesome!

    I’d like to win a copy of your new book, too, looks great.

  • Yuna

    I’m so excited to hear about the release of the cookbook (finally!) I’ve been waiting for your vegetarian cookbook for too long – and it would even be more awesome if I win this giveaway! :)

    My absolute favorite vegetarian dish is a simple one: Asparagus with poached eggs! Yum!

  • Wendy

    Spinach, Corn and Quinoa Chowder, à la Deborah Madison. So mouthwatering anytime!

  • My favorite vegetarian recipe is shredded green cabbage with white beans and parmesean cheese on top.

  • Congratulations!! my favorite recipe these days is spinach fresh from the garden, steamed eggs from our chickens, black pepper and goat cheese.

  • sylvie

    ma recette vegetarienne preferee c’est du chou borecole saute avec des oignons, de l’ail et du paprika fume piquant, auquel j’ajoute du riz brun cuit et de l’huile d’olive… quelque fois j’y met des pignons de pin pour un peu de croquant.

    c’est un souper gagnant, meme si ca ne m’obtien pas un livre gratuit ;)

  • Caprese sandwiches with fresh-from-the-garden/farmers market ingredients.

    Lentil stew.

    Mushroom risotto.

    Tom kha soup.

    Gardener’s pie. (Shepherd’s pie, but with mushrooms and mushroom gravy instead of meat and meat gravy.)

  • Kanisa

    I would recommend cabbage fried with Fish Sauce. I’m not sure if this is truly vegetarian, however it is delicious one and exotic. This is common Thai recipe which generally it’s cooked with peanut oil. For more healthier, you can choose your oil eg. canola or sesame. Enjoy! ^-^

  • Agnes Powers

    Baby Beet tarte tatin with shallots. I made four in a row when I found this recipe in the Washington Post this spring.

  • Kanisa

    I would recommend cabbage fried with Fish Sauce. I’m not sure if this is truly vegetarian, however it is delicious one and exotic. Eat with jasmine rice is the best! This is common Thai recipe which is generally cooked with peanut oil. However, you can choose your oil eg. canola, rice bran or sesame to be healthier. Enjoy! ^-^

  • Emmanuelle

    Une salade toute simple avec différentes variétés de tomates en saison :)

  • Simone

    My favorite vegetarian dish right now is linguini with a creamy sauce made from blending avocado, basil, lemon, garlic, and salt together. I add some sauteed spinach, mushrooms, and tomatoes. So good during the summer.

  • Neeltje

    Love reading everyone’s favourite vegetarian dishes. Mine? An everyday favourite; spaghetti with a simple tomato sauce with garlic/sage/chunky mashed chickpeas/parmesan

  • Alexi

    Hello Clotilde,
    congratulations on your newest cookbook. My favourite (simple) vegetarian dish would be a tomato soup made of fresh tomatoes. Begin with stir-frying a chopped onion and (if you like) garlic and chili. Add tomatoes, then broth. Let cook for about 10 minutes, then blend everything. Tastes great and looks nice with a dollop of cream. Regards, Alexi

  • Jessica

    As a passionate vegetarian, it is difficult to name my favourite vegetarian dish. At the moment, I am craving my famous Honey-Mango & Rose Coconut Rice Pudding, accompanied by either green tea or a flute of Champagne. It consists of coconut rice, coconut milk, toasted coconut and a dash of rosewater, served warm and topped with a layer of honey mangoes from Pakistan, sugared rose petals and crowned with a strawberry! :) BON APPETIT!

  • Congratulations on completing the book! It is such a huge accomplishment. My favorite vegetarian recipe is angel hair spaghetti with a sauce made from simmered heirloom grape tomatoes, diced peaches, garlic, olive oil and a splash of balsamic vinegar.

  • Gill

    Congratulations – your new book looks great.
    One of my favourite vegetarian dishes is a spinach quiche with feta or goats cheese when I am making it in France. The vegetables here are so good.

  • Melissa

    I’ve been a vegetarian for just a short time now, but I’m loving finding new vegetarian recipes. My favorite is still one I got from my grandmother, who grew up in Armenia, Tabbouleh. Loads of fresh veggies chopped finely and mixed with bulgur, lemon juice and olive oil. So delicious!

  • Sara

    Congratulations on the new book!
    My favorite vegetarian recipe lately is grilled zucchini. Zucchini tossed with olive oil and some herbs then put on the grill for a few minutes each side. Great by itself of on a green salad, but I like it even better on a good slice of bread with some pesto and fresh tomatoes.

  • Elodie

    je suis une lectrice assidue de ton blog que j’aime beaucoup. Bravo pour tes recettes et ta plume.
    Ma recette végétarienne favorite est la peperonata : poivrons rouges confits avec des oignons dans de l’huile d’olive et du miel avec des raisins secs, des pignons et de l’origan.

  • I want to say eggplant stuffed with mushrooms but truthfully, nothing beats the simplicity of sweet potato fries.

  • Ton livre me tente beaucoup Clotilde, je l’ai feuilleté et j’ai bien envie de l’adopter !
    Ma recette végétarienne du moment, une salade de lentilles, cuites dans du bouillon de volaille, je les assaisonne à chaud avec du vinaigre de cidre et de la moutarde, tièdes j’y ajoute des dés de tomates épluchées, de l’estragon, des échalotes finement émincées et de l’huile d’olive, c’est bon, sain, frais, nourrissant !!

  • Helen

    Congratulations on your new book! I can’t wait to read, and try, your recipes!

  • Karine

    Bravo pour ce livre.
    Une recette végétarienne à laquelle je ne peux absolument pas résister et qui fait régulièrement des émules lorsque je la propose : un achard de légumes. J’en ai l’eau à la bouche rien que d’y penser !
    Merci pour le concours.

  • Kim

    I enjoy your blog as much for the recipes as for your story-telling, so I look forward to reading your book! I recently discovered pasta with sauteed greens, capers, garlic, lemon zest + juice and white wine, plus parmigiano. Simple and delicious.

  • Zosia

    Congratulations on your newest book! I would love to own a copy. My favourite vegetarian dish is roasted ratatouille.

  • Meryl

    I have so many favorites. One of them is penne with roasted vegetables: red and yellow peppers, red onion, garlic, fennel, and carrot. Topped with grated Parmigiano Reggiano.

  • Louis

    I love mega salads with chickpeas or navy beans, green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, sweet onion, cucumber, corn, black olives, etc. with a Dijon vinaigrette.

  • Eein

    Grilled portobello with olive oil, balsamic, sea salt and pepper. Grocery list is the recipe :)

  • Anneke

    Warm potato salad! Steam some small potatoes (I do mine in the microwave, which exists to heat water, after all), then throw on a dressing (vegenaise, dijon mustard, dill, homemade fridge pickle juice) and toss in whatever chopped veggies you have. I like cucumber, bell pepper, and onion, but you can throw in whatever. Tomatoes and apples both work well, too. If you don’t need it vegan, you can use mayo, or toss in a chopped hard-boiled egg. The warm potatoes take on the flavor of the dressing wonderfully.

    Congratulations on the book! It looks gorgeous, and like it will make people’s mouths water. Can’t wait to leaf through it.

  • Jessica

    Oh! This is so exciting.

    I am vegetarian so it’s hard to pick a favorite.. but I make a delicious garlicky white bean and kale soup. Just enough heat and creaminess. My boyfriend says “It makes me want to cry ” every time I cook it. I’ll take it! :-)

    Looking forward to finding a new favorite in your book!!

  • Trish

    My favourite and easiest weekend lunch… Silverbeet Frittata

    500g bunch of silverbeet, well washed
    1 cup grated parmesan
    6 large eggs
    pepper to taste

    heat a splash of olive oil in a heavy based fry pan.
    separate the silverbeet stems from the leaves and chop into 1cm lengths. saute the stems in the frypan for 5min. Slice the leaves into 1cm wide strips. Add to the pan and saute, covered for 5min, stirring occassionally.

    Once the leaves have wilted and the stems are softened, place in a collander to cool and drain any excess liquid.

    Wipe out the pan, and then warm a small amount of olive oil, coating the entire surface of the pan.

    Beat the eggs and add the grated parmesan and a generous amount of pepper.

    Add the silverbeet to the egg mix, mix well, and tip into the fry pan. Allow to cook on a medium flame for 5min, until the egg looks set at the surface of the frittata. Use a spatula to separate the edges of the frittata from the pan. Finish off under a hot grill for a few minutes, until the top is golden brown – keep an eye on it!

    Tip pan upside down onto a serving plate, slice into wedges and enjoy hot or cold. Delicious the next day too!

  • sarah

    Yogurt cake and its endless variations. But if my favourite vegetarian recipe must have actual vegetables in it then the saffron cauliflowers make a regular appearance on my table.

  • Jill

    I was delighted when the (pre-ordered on Amazon) book arrived on Monday. I was even more delighted when, at a loss for dinner plans, I decided to try the radish-top pasta recipe tonight. Neither my husband nor I had ever thought of eating the tops, though we love radishes…We now have a new recipe to add to the repertoire – it’s easy and delicious! Thank you! I look forward to cooking my way through the rest of the book (as I have with many of your other recipes). Not only that, the stories in the book are charming, and the photography is beautiful. Congratulations!

  • I love a simple pasta with a yogurt, garlic, mushroom, and spinach sauce.

  • Your book looks so lovely. My favorite vegetarian recipe is a spicy vegetarian moussaka recipe that I long ago ripped out of a BBC food magazine.

  • kate C.

    We only eat meat around 1x a week, so we have lots of favorite vegetarian recipes! One we eat a lot in the summer involves 6 minced cloves of garlic sauted in some olive oil with a shake or two of crushed red pepper, don’t let get brown, then add zucchini – quartered lengthwise and then sliced fairly thin. Saute around 5 min, then add a drained/rinsed can of white beans and a can of diced tomatoes (not drained). Cook ~5 min, season with salt, pepper and add fresh chopped basil. Mix with penne pasta and serve with grated parm.

  • Heather

    My favorite veg side dish right now is candied carrots — which are essentially just carrots and dates baked in the oven. So good!

  • Sue

    Oui, je le voudrais, s’il vous plait! (watch out for the rust flying off my French skills!) I would love to have this cookbook! My favorite vegetarian recipe is probably for lentil soup. I could eat lentil soup every day!

  • Diane Ryalls

    Favourite vegetarian recipe? Very simple…fluffy scrambled eggs cooked with butter, baby garlic, chopped fresh basil and shredded Parmesan cheese and served with tasty tomatoes drizzled with olive oil.
    Your new cookbook looks wonderful..please enter my name in the draw!

  • Nicole Davis

    It’s winter here in Australia and I love thick wintery vegetable soups, pumpkin is a favourite!

    Congratulations on a beautiful looking new cook book

  • despite all of the other exciting things i have cooked and been served over the years, my favourite vegetarian meal is just always going to be homemade pizza.

  • Roz

    Congratulations on your new book! I’m looking forward to taking it to bed with me!
    My favorite all-around recipe is for ‘mushroom meat’ from thechubbyvegetarian. Eggplant, onion and mushrooms chopped fine, added spices, and roasted in an oven. This neat meat goes on pizza, pasta, in dumplings or anything else. I always make a double batch and freeze half.

    My second favorite is from Marlena Spieler’s The Vegetarian Bistro, circa 1997….250 French regional recipes. I love her writing and her recipes. Her pumpkin gratin in creamy tomato and red pepper sauce is an autumn favorite.

    We have been plant-based for two years now and feel absolutely wonderful! Thank you for your blog…I love it.

  • Vee

    Ooo! Congratulations Clotilde!

    My favourite vegetarian recipe just now is Ottolenghi’s sweet potato cakes. Mouth watering!

  • Emilye

    Salut Clotilde,

    your blog is always a lovely source of inspiration.

    My favourite vegetarian recipe comes from my then-flatmate in Edinburgh, Lael. She cooked her mother’s lentil soup for me on my birthday and it is still, to this day, the best that I have ever tasted.

    Congratulations on your new book!

  • Christine

    Bonjour Clotilde,

    Félicitations pour la sortie de votre livre qui a l’air très tentant !

    Ma recette favorite du moment est une pâte feuilletée tartinée de pesto, puis recouvertes de rondelles de tomates fraîches et passée au four ! C’est facile et délicieux avec une salade verte.

  • Rebecca Drew

    Congratulations on your new book!

    My favourite is very nostalgic as it dates from my early childhood when a friend of my parents who lived on an ashram came to stay with us and cooked brown lentils with miso and spices, and served it on brown rice. Very simple, but the miso and lentils is a wonderfully warming combination.

  • Lisa

    Love the blog and especially love the French Market Cookbook. Upon moving to France I walked through the market and found so many different vegetables I had never seen in the USA…my daughter went from vegeterian to vegan so I am really trying so many new recipes. My favorite one starts with quinoa. Its so good for you and satisfying so anything I add to it is delicious. My favorite may be roasted veggies mixed in with a vinagrette as well.

  • Julie D.

    Allez, moi aussi je participe !
    Ma recette végétarienne préférée en ce moment est une salade de pâtes : j’y mets des fèves, des petits pois et des haricots verts frais ainsi que des copeaux de fromage de brebis un peu sec mais pas trop. J’assaisonne le tout d’un pistou que je confectionne à base principalement de roquette et d’un peu de basilic (ail et huile d’olive bien sûr). C’est bon, c’est tout vert, et il y a plein de textures différentes… Voilà !

  • Reka

    My favorite vegetarian dish is potato stew made with lots of onions and red paprika powder.

  • Yasmine

    Je participe aussi! Ce livre a l’air vraiment chouette.
    Une recette végétarienne que je fais souvent (car rapide et simple) est un plat de pâtes : pâtes complètes avec une sauce tomate aux oignons caramélisés,des épinards, des pois-chiches, de la coriandre et un peu de feta émiettée. Ca nous sauve pas mal de soir sans idées :)

  • Peggy

    Bravo pour ce livre qui donne envie de recettes fraîches et “healthy” !

    Ma recette végétarienne préférée est une salade de lentilles et riz complet (parfaite pour l’association complémentaire légumineuse – céréales), avec des dés de tomates et un bon assaisonnement bien vinaigré et moutardé, et plein d’herbes fraîches du moment (persil plat le plus souvent).

    Bon, il y a aussi le dhal que j’aime beaucoup…

  • Sarah

    My favourite vegetarian (vegan) recipe has to be a tie between a roasted butternut squash soup and simple garlicky sauteed kale. With good, fresh produce I find that the simpler the recipe, the better the outcome.

  • Renee

    Salade de quinoa,poivrons rôtis,mais en grain,cumin

    Félicitations pour ce livre!
    À ajouter dans ma biblio!

    Merci pour le concours.

  • Nily

    Ma belle-mere m’a fait cadeau du livre d’hier, je me suis empressee de le feuilleter et ce matin je n’ai pas pu resister de l’essayer. J’ai fais le clafoutis aux peches exactement comme indique avec les cardamoms et tout. II est ressorti parfaitement bien, et on va tous le deguster a notre pique-nique du 4 juillet tout a l’heure! Merci Clotilde!

    • J’en suis ravie, merci Nily !

  • Sarah

    Ma recette végétarienne préférée, c’est celle du curry de pois chiches aux épinards de Pascale Weeks. Je ne m’en lasse pas et ça tombe bien car mes deux petits bonhommes l’aiment aussi !

  • Cassie

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is chana masala. Warm spices, tomatoes, red onion, and chick peas. So simple and filling. Sometimes I will throw in spinach or another green to boost it up.

  • Sophie

    ma recette préférée du moment c’est une belle grosse salade verte, mesclun de préférence, avec des poires fondantes en lamelles, des figues séchées, des noix croquantes, du fromage de chèvre émietté, avec une vinaigrette balsamique/erable! l’association des saveurs et des textures est grandiose!

  • Renee B

    My current favorite vegetarian dish is delicious, easy and very healthy. It’s Kale, roman or pinto beans, pasta, lots of garlic (4-6 minced cloves), crushed red pepper (1/2-1 tsp) all topped with parmesan cheese. You saute the garlic in olive oil then add 1/3 cup of vegetable broth, add big bunch of torn pieces of kale, cover and steam until just bright green, add 1 can of rinsed beans and heat through, toss to combine then top individual main course portions with parmesan. It’s a delicious and very satisfying meal. Try it, you’ll love it! Occasionally I also add sauteed red bell pepper and/or chicken pieces. Sometimes I drizzle a little olive oil on individual servings.

    I hope I’m one of the lucky five to win a copy of The French Market Cookbook!

  • Sarah

    I love the patty pan squash salad recipe you published on the blog. I searched for a recipe after seeing the little flying saucers in the market and I loved the fresh, delicate taste that reminds me of summer.

  • Tanya

    Congratulations on the new book!
    My favorite vegetarian dish is Koshari—a delicious Egyptian lentil and rice medley.

  • gwenn

    Congrats for this book! I’m very excited by all the vegetarian books published these last years, showing that we can actually cook nice meals without meat.

    Lately, my favorite vegetarian dish has definitly been a green mango salad: shredded green mango, carrot, rice vermicelli (“bun”), along with a big bunch of fresh basil and mint, and with a nuoc mam and lime dressing, plus a reasonable amount of chopped peanut topping.
    Also, just omit the nuoc mam and it becomes vegan.

    Definitely one of the best Vietnamese meal ever!
    (Like French, Vietnamese food culture is not much into vegetarian diet…)

  • Viviane

    Bravo pour le book deal ! My favorite vegetarian dish : Ragoût d’artichauts poivrade avec tomate, oignon, ail et riz au gras, plein d’herbes de provence…

  • Comment vous remerciez ? Grâce à vous et surtout votre recette du lait d’avoine, fini mes cafés du matin, trop acides pour mon estomac car bus noirs, trouvant le prix du lait d’avoine du commerce trop onéreux pour mes petites finances !
    Désormais, à moi les bons petits cafés allongés au lait d’avoine fait maison ! Et quelle fierté quand mes colocataires n’y voient que du feu, s’imaginant boire une pâle copie industrielle !!
    Le lait d’avoine, c’est MA recette végétarienne du moment !!

  • Karen

    The book looks lovely! I love wild mushroom risotto, and also carrot soup with orange juice and ginger.

  • Linda

    Shakshouka, because it is so versatile:
    The basic recipe is to fry onions and garlic in vegetable or olive oil, add bell peppers and cook until soft, add tomatoes and let them simmer until they break down, season with fresh chili pepper, paprika and/or cumin, and then crack eggs on the top and cook until they set. You can add any other vegetable (beans, potatoes, zucchini, eggplant, etc.) or, for a vegan meal, delete the eggs. Serve with bread for wiping up the extra sauce.

    Loved your “Edible Adventures in Paris”; thanks for introducing me to Verlet and G. Detou!

  • Anne Marie

    I like to roast seasonal vegetables with olive oil and have them over pasta or rice.

  • The first time I lived in France as an au pair in the mid-80s, I was a vegetarian, and didn’t find much to eat other than boiled vegetables, potatoes, and salad after salad. Now that I’m living here and cooking for myself I go to the farmer’s markets regularly, and even though I eat meat now I spend most of my market dollars on vegetables and fruit. I’m still not used to the fact that the citrus from both north and south of the Mediterranean are so abundant! My favorite vegetarian recipe is whatever is in season at the time: currently it’s a salad I’ve just made of fresh-shelled peas (must profit from them while they’re here!) lightly blanched and mixed with paper-thin slices of fennel with a lemon juice and olive oil dressing and most of a bunch of chives, very finely chopped. That was the accompaniment to grilled sardines with lemon zest tonight, and the leftovers will probably be mixed with cooked quinoa tomorrow, maybe with some toasted nuts. Oh, and perhaps the rest of that sauteed zucchini …

  • Congratulations, Clothilde, on your new book! My copy is waiting on the distributors at Amazon, so frustrating!

    I’m finding it very difficult to pick a favourite vegetarian recipe as there are so many that I love. However, high at the top of the list is a summer rice salad..

  • Aude

    Ma recette végé préférée est un curry d’épinards et de patates douces. Plein de saveurs et de bonnes choses, et ça cale :) Sinon, il y a plein de trucs classiques que je fais végé, comme les lasagnes ou le chili, et mon copain, grand carnivore, en redemande!

    Merci pour ce livre, je galère souvent pour expliquer à mes amis nord-américains ce qu’il y a de végé dans la cuisine française, et je ne demande qu’a être inspirée…

  • James

    Hi Clotilde. Congratulations on your book. My favorite vegetarian recipes are soups. Ones I have made and enjoy are: Welsh Leek soup (Cawl Cennin), Carrot and Ginger soup, and Rustic Italian soup (roasted eggplant and basil). The best is the one I’ve never made but always love: Korean miso soup with spinach. Simply wonderful!

  • drea

    Pick me :) My favorite veggie meal is avocado, beet & arugula salad with marcona almonds…yum.

  • Dear Clotilde,
    First, congratulations on the new book, can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.
    Now, I don’t know how you’re going to make your way thru all of these 300+ comments, especially now that I’m adding to them.
    I have lots of favourite vegetarian recipes, but the latest is special because even my 10-year-old meat lover can’t get enough of it: chop up celery, tomatoes, olives and garlic, stir in olive oil in a medium size saucepan, place a whole head of cauliflower, add 1/4 cup of white wine, cover with a tight lid and cook gently until cauliflower is tender (not mushy!) Take off the heat, sprinkle a good dose of parmesan cheese, put the lid back on and let the cheese melt with the residual heat. Sprinkle with parsley, and serve from the pan. Delish!!!
    Thanks for the opportunity.

    • I do read all of them! I wouldn’t dream of missing out on those great ideas. :)

      • And there are great ideas, I totally agree. One could cook vegetarian every day for the next 18 months, just from these comments. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • oxalis

    Félicitations pour ce nouvel opus!
    En ce moment je fais assez souvent mariner quelques minutes au frais des petits dés de tofu nature avec huiles d’olive et sésame, shoyu, crème d’ail nouveau, curcuma et/ou curry, poivre noir, graines de sésame blond et noir, que j’ajoute à une petite salade verte ou composée, ébouriffée d’herbes fraîches (le cerfeuil étant ma préférée!)

  • Kendra S.

    I love risotto with whatever vegetable is fresh but butternut squash is my favorite. Add caramelized onions and it’s even better.

  • Steph N

    I really like the coconut curry greens recipe that I got from a local restaurant.

  • Sheryl Smith

    Congratulations on the new book! I’m looking forward to a copy in my kitchen, one way or another. The title was intriguing–my understanding of french cooking was that most special occasions are centered around meat. I’m still working on going plant based, but the things I’ve tried so far and loved have been:

    Lentil Soup
    Berry Cheesecake (Raw)
    Lentil and quinoa salad

    Looking forward to seeing more of your publications in the future!

  • Rob

    So excited for your cookbook! (I’m always on the lookout for great vegetarian — and vegan — French recipes!)
    My current favorite vegetarian recipe is a combination of a Moroccan and Indian take on chickpeas. Quick, hearty, and easy to adapt for other ingredients (just some onion, garlic, olive oil, chickpeas and tomatoes stir fried together with spice)

  • Kathy Manelis

    I have only recently found your blog….which I truly enjoy, by the way. My favorite vegetarian recipe would be my stand-by lentil and brown rice casserole which I have been making for decades and which my children (both now in their 30s) still request whenever they are home. Many years ago, I took it from “The Tassajara Cook Book” and it became my go-to vegetarian dinner. It is versatile and whichever vegetables one happens to have on hand can be incorporated. It is something that can be thrown together with minimal effort but is always new because it depends on what is in the fridge. I would love to have your book as, these days, I am constantly searching for new and innovative vegetarian dishes….plus, I adore French food!

  • Stephanie-Oh

    Congratulations on the new book! What an accomplishment! I would love to win a copy of your book. Good luck and Happy Independence Day!

  • kimwithak

    Yay another beautiful book…LOVE the cover and title!!!
    I adore my copy of your book Chocolate and Zucchini and can’t wait to get my hands on this one!
    My favourite vegetarian dish is a layer of egg noodles, a layer of zucchini a layer of sauce…red lentils cooked with onion, garlic, red pepper, mushrooms, tomato and spices (cinnamon really makes it yummy)! Top with another layer of zucchini and then a velvety layer of bechamel sauce, sprinkle of parmesan and baked for 30 minutes…soooo goood!!!!
    OK, I’m drooling!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  • Liz Thomas

    Comgratulations on the book. Have already had a peek at Amazon.

    Favourite meatless dish in this house is shakshuka! Great with plenty of good bread.

    Fingers crossed I win a copy!!!!!

  • Melissa

    Kobocha squash soup with kombu broth and soy milk is my favorite vegetarian meal. Actually it is vegan.

  • Stephanie

    Thanks for the giveaway!
    Having lived for over 10 years in Asia, I have many favorite vegeterian recipes, most of them involve rice, dhals (lens) or chickpeas.
    A bientôt sur votre blog!
    Stephanie (Paris)

  • It’s so hard to choose and it definitely depends on my mood! I think one of the best vegetarian recipes that can be your entire meal are stuffed veggies, zucchini and tomatoes in particular! – use a little breadcrumbs, cheese, other veggies (really whatever you prefer) !! :)

  • Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy of your new book – which looks fantastic!

    My favourite vegetarian recipe is Andrew Carmellini’s caponata from his book Urban Italian. I started making it years ago and it’s become a late summer staple in our home, eaten out on the balcony on sunny evenings.

  • Mojca

    Congratulations on your new book! I’d love to win a copy, of course, and try out some new recipes…

    Currently my favourite vegetarian recipes are simple, as sun-ripened fruit and vegetables are pretty much perfect and it’s good to let them take centre stage. It’s hard to beat a simple tomato salad – just thinly sliced tomatoes, peppers and onions, with pumpkin oil and balsamic vinegar, some salt and pepper too.

    Another summer favourite: roasted peppers (preferably over the barbecue so they are a bit smoky), sliced, in lots of olive oil, garlic, a dash of vinegar too.

  • Katrina

    Salt and pepper tofu! Absolutely delicious!

    Just been on my second trip to France, carried your book around everywhere on places to eat! Loved the brioche from Bread and Roses

  • Liz St Clair

    One of the nicest things I ever ate in France was a buttermilk and bay leaf tarte which can be made either sweet or savoury. I had it served with a really tart plum jam and it was simply delicious. Very easy to make, a shortcrust pastry then filled with a custard made from buttermilk, cream, bay leaves, eggs, unsalted butter, lemon zest with sugar added if you want it sweet. Cold in summer with creme fraiche or warm in winter with a tart conserve.

  • My favorite vegetarian dish is a pierogi recipe that my daughter-in-law makes with chia seeds in the dough and potatoes and southwestern spices. It is served over an avocado cream sauce. It is not only creative, but delicious.

  • I am SO thrilled you made this book and very excited to read it as my boyfriend (who is French) always wants to eat healthier but can’t imagine a diet with no meat and little dairy… I also struggle at the markets when figuring out what to buy for the week, so I’ll likely be using your book (and blog) a lot! As for my favorite recipe, it is a simple one, but I adore a good heirloom tomato and watermelon salad topped with feta, basil and balsamic reduction. Merci!

  • Gaëlle

    Ma recette vegetarienne préférée, ce sont les lasagnes au potiron, tomate et au chevre. Toute ma famille en raffole !

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is simple…grilled fresh corn on the cob.

  • Congratulations Clotilde! I remember buying your first book 6 years ago while travelling through the USA – I bought it for the friend I stayed with in DC too!

    As a vegetarian I have so, so many favourite dishes, depending on the season and my mood. But for consistent inspiration, Indian cuisine is my favourite. Dhals, dosas, sambals…it’s all amazing. India is one of the best places on earth to visit if you’re vegetarian and you love food :)

    I love the Broccoli and Apple Quiche from your first book too :) congrats once again and fingers crossed for a win! x

  • Ax

    French and Vegetarian! This is perfect for me as a guy who wants to lose weight. As for my favorite vegetarian recipe, I’m going with the spinach garden salad with a light dressing of fresh orange juice. Delicious!

  • Shiri

    I love your first cookbook and would love to get a free copy of this one as well !

    Currently my favorite vegetarian recipe is roasted cauliflower….

  • Would love to win a copy! I love a simple vegetarian dal ( naan to sop it up with. Cheap to make, filling, and delicious!

  • I love kale chips. When baked till crispy and lightly seasoned with garlic and salt they are the best!

  • Gretchen

    The new cookbook looks wonderful. I am always looking for new ways to add veggies to our table and then actually eaten. I make a quick dinner with lentils cooked with cumin, garlic, onion, touch of coriander. I cook some bowtie pasta and then take half an onion and saute it until it is nice and caramelized. So pasta, lentils, onions and feta with a dose of olive oil on top. If you have fresh tomatoes they are nice too.

  • The new cookbook looks gorgeous! Bravo! My favorite vegetarian dish these days is enchiladas made with roasted sweet potato cubes, black beans, green olives and tomatillo sauce. A bit of fresh cilantro and goat chesse on top makes them truly divine!

  • Sandra

    I’m so looking forwards to read this book, I LOVED the previous one (so much that I keep giving it as a present to my friends!!)! And I love vegetables too, so I’m pretty sure the new book and me are going to be BFF in no time!
    And actually, my favourite vegetarian food, baba ganoush, is somewhat related to an epiphany I had when reading your previous book, and more specifically the aubergine-dip page! Before I did, I also thought aubergines were cursed to be either bouncy or oily. And then I baked them in the oven and my life changed!!

  • Since I’ve been vegan for such a long time, I’ve made a lot of incredible recipes. I’d say my favorite lately has been the multiple variations of raw zucchini pasta I’ve been playing with.

  • greyfavorite

    Congratulations on your book! With the hot weather of late I’ve been enjoying casseroles that I can reheat in the microwave. That way, I can turn on my oven once and eat for a week. My current favorite has apples, cauliflower, carrots, and sauerkraut.

  • Amy

    Quinoa stuffed red peppers! Spinach, black beans, tomatoes, grated carrots, onion, garlic, ONE TABLESPOON CUMIN!, and quinoa, with melted cheese on top!

  • Hello Clotilde!

    I am so excited for this cookbook (and if I don’t win I will be sure to go pick it up)! My favorite vegetarian recipe is a cold Korean noodle dish called Bibimguksu. It has soba noodle-like buckwheat noodles, dressed with sesame oil, soy sauce, a bit of sugar, chili flakes, chili paste and topped with some grated cucumber, sesame seeds and a boiled egg. It is so refreshing on a hot summer day and really gets you out of your summer heat stupor with its spicy kick.

    Good luck with your book and I look forward to cooking some tasty recipes out of it!

  • RCF

    I live this new dish I made spicy split red lentils with shredded carrot and a touch of quinoa! Thanks!

  • kira

    One of my absolute favorites is definitely a quiche – shortcrust pastry: (1 egg), 200 g spelt flower, 100 g butter, some cold water if needed. I usually don’t prebake the dough. For the filling: 1 courgette, 3 tomatoes, 5 eggs and a package of feta or chèvre (200 g approx). Add a handful of herbs, salt, muscat and paprika powder. Top with gruyere or some other well melting cheese.
    ~ 40min @180C, middle height. Should be golden brown

  • Eva

    I discovered you when you showed Luisa Weis’ (wednesday chef) fridge on your site. This cookbook looks wonderful!!!!! Fav veg recipe… Really there are too many but I love Madhur Jaffrey”s Morrocan Chickpea stew… And black eyed pea fritters and…

  • arianna

    being italiani my favorite is minestrone with short pasta flavored with a teaspoon of pesto and served at room temperature on hot summer nights.

  • Mackenzie Boyer Bull

    My husband just bought this and it is terrific! I like the way it is organized by season, very few cookbooks are and I think it makes the most sense. I can’t wait until the tomatoes in Michigan are ripe so I can make Tomato Mustard Tart and Tomato and Tarragon bread soup.

  • Elsa

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is guacamole : easy, quick and delicious (avocado, tomatoes, cilantro, chopped red onion, lemon juice, salt and pepper: all mashed up but not too mashed up). One personal touch : I always add cumin to spice things up!

  • Chickpea salad….

  • Elli

    I can’t pin down a favorite vegetarian recipe because there are so many, but anything with broccoli, garlic, and something creamy wins my heart.

  • Jane

    I want to go back to Paris and eat your vegetarian cooking! The inside looks are fabulous. I can’t wait to try the recipes.

  • Dina

    Congratulations on the book! Looking forward to it! :D I speak for everyone here: we are so grateful for the work you are doing! A heartfelt thank you.
    As for the question, so hard to choose! :) It depends on the season I guess. In the winter it would me more aloo gobi with cashews, red lentil dahl, lentils de puy salad with never too much of Maille’s balsamic vinegar & in the summer, salads. My favourite would be nothing but the simplest tomato salad, with feta cheese, parsley, basil, red onions, olives, some green peppers (not the big ones you can stuff, it’s a different kind of pepper I haven’t been able to find anywhere). When it’s incredibly hot outside, who can resist a fridge-cold salad of the ripest tomatoes out there? For me, heaven! (and home :))

  • Jennifer V.

    My hands down all-time favorite vegetarian dish is one that introduced me to cauliflower, a vegetable I have disliked since I could remember. It’s Black Pepper Tempeh dish from 101 cookbooks cook book. Full of an entire head of cauliflower, tempeh, black pepper, shallots, coconut oil and a few other spices. I’ve made it for the biggest meat eaters who hate veggies, and they all leave the table asking for the recipe! I look forward finding a ne veggie love affair with the recipes you are sharing with us! Thank you for your beautifully creative expressions of good.

  • My favorite vegetarian recipe is for margherita pizza, using Daiya’s shredded mozzarella-style cheese alternative along with the usual lovely tomatoes, fresh basil, etc. I’m hungry just thinking of it!

  • Ambika Kumar

    Hello :-) your blog is one of the first few I started reading and still continue to. Being from South India, we grew up eatng only vegetarian food. Many Indians are vegetarian! But now I enjoy all types of cuisines and both vegetarin and non vegetarian cooking(thai , japanese and italian being up there on preference:-))
    One of my most favourite vegetarian dishes is “Avial’ a south indian speciality. Steamed vegetables like white pumpkin, carrots, beans, potato in a spiced coconut gravy to be eaten over hot steamed rice.
    If you like eating vegetarian food you should travel to India and visit us sometime :-)

  • Mira

    My favourite vegetarian dish is mango, cucumber and avocado salad.

  • Allison


    I love so many vegetables! One I haven’t made in a while (and am craving) is a warm white bean salad. I also love roasted asparagus with whole-grain mustard.


  • Elizabeth

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is mujadarra and a Fattoush salad

  • Maya

    J’étais une végétarienne depuis 19 ans, donc je mangeais plusieurs plats végétariens. En tout cas, j’adore les courges, donc la première chose qui vient a l’esprit est cette salade.


  • It has got to be my zucchini sun-dried tomato rolls! I roll up some feta and sundried tomato paste into a grilled strip of zucchini. Seemingly so simple but has a good flavour punch. Also, we had some basil pesto & chopped tomato pasta today. We like very easy simple foods that are awesomely flavourful.

  • Evonne

    I really love cold sesame noodles with lots of bright, crunchy vegetables mixed in.

  • Emily Chan

    I would love to win this vegetarian cook book, so here is my favourite vegetarian dish for summer:

    Cold soba noodle top with a sauce of soy, sesame oil or olive oil, vinegar, toss in shredded salad leaves of your choice, carrots, bean sprouts, scallions etc. & sprinkle some sesame seeds to finish off. Delicious and satisfying!!!

  • Ania

    What good fortune – I read this blog a few years ago and we used your Edible Adventures in Paris for a trip we took about four years ago – we had a wonderful time searching out just a few of the recommendations. So, today I was looking for a cake recipe to make for my son’t birthday – and remembered this blog and here is this post about the drawing for your newest books. How fun!
    Favorite recipe would have to be a slightly modified version of Mushroom Tofu Stroganoff from Edward Espe Brown’s Tassajara Recipe Book: Favorites of the Guest Season. My choice because everyone in my family loved it – and it was a warm comforting winter meal. I still have that book but it is buried somewhere in a storage locker in Hawaii – but this is a good reminder that I should plan to try to make it again once Autumn arrives.

  • I’m not entering :-) I just wanted to heap congratulations on you for the book – YAY!

    You are full of awesomeness – tons of hard work doing a book and you totally rock for having made it – AWESOMENESS!

  • Congratulations on the book’s publication – can’t wait to see it!

    I’d have a very hard time picking just one favourite vegetarian dish so here are two I especially love in warm weather, one very easy, the other a labour of love. The easy one is Provencal tomato and goat cheese tart (with loads of herbs and a crust that you can put straight in the tin without chilling). The labour of love is frittedda (artichokes, broad beans and peas braised together in olive oil with onion, garlic and mint… you can imagine how long it takes to prep the vegetables but it’s so worth it).

  • Kate

    At the moment, sautée in olive oil fresh corn cut off the cob, fresh diced tomato (stupice this year), garlic, and mix of zucchini and pattypan dice. Add ribbons of rainbow chard and steam to a Finish with a little wine, minced parsley and basil over some pasta.

  • Alison

    Avocado and radish on French bread!

  • sarah

    My family’s favorite veg recipe recently has been the black bean and sweet potato tacos with lime-cilantro cabbage slaw from Joy the Baker’s blog. Delicious! Congratulations on what is sure to be a very popular book!

  • Brian Mulvehill

    Favorite recipe, hhmmmm. OK- my wife discovered this and it has become a family favorite. Black bean and roasted sweet potato tacos. Top it with a cilantro/lime/cabbage slaw and it is hearty and crisp (add homemade Ghost pepper hot sauce and it is even better!). Perfect for a hot night with a beer. Congrats on the book and best of luck!

  • Rachel

    My mouth is watering at the thought of all the deliciousness in this book.

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is any veggie quiche, especially with spinach & leeks. I could eat quiche 5 times a week.

  • Your book looks lovely — I can’t wait to read it! My favourite vegetarian recipe right now is Marcella Hazan’s broccoli soup with baby pasta. I’d love to win the book!

  • Michaela

    I have been looking forward to this cookbook as soon as I heard it was in the making and it’s out just in time for my birthday on Tuesday :)

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is actually your vegan Swiss chard gratin which I have made over and over sometimes substituting other veggies. It is so creamy and satisfying.

    Thanks for all your hard work and for sharing such beautiful recipes.

  • marie

    Félicitations pour ce nouveau livre.
    Jusqu’à il y a peu, je ne me posais pas beaucoup de questions sur le fait de manger de la viande ou pas. Mais notre fils de 20 mois mangeant la même chose que nous depuis ses un an, j’ai dû trouver des idées pour des dîners sans viande ni poisson. Le plus simple, c’est des pâtes, mais j’aime aussi beaucoup le feuilleté aux pommes de terre.

  • Andrea

    I’m looking forward to this cookbook regardless of whether I win this copy!

  • My favorite is the tiramisu that my father made for me. He was an extraordinary cook, in my humble opinion…completely self-taught and exuberantly adventurously creative in the kitchen. As a 10-year old I remember while other fathers taught their children about fishing and fixing things, my dad was teaching me about dolmades and brioche!
    He teased me endlessly when I became a vegan, but a few years ago he surprised me with a magnificent tiramisu, all vegan, and spinningly delicious! I’ll never forget how delicious it was and the radiant smile on his face when he placed it on the table. He lived to love through his cooking. :)

  • Alix

    Bravo pour ce nouveau “bébé” Clothilde !
    Je profite de ce commentaire pour te dire combien j’apprécie ton blog, ainsi que tes chroniques dans le Elle à table…
    Je ne mange que végétarien, seulement du poisson de temps en temps, alors c’est dur de choisir une seule recette…
    J’apprécie tout particulièrement les légumes rôtis, quels qu’ils soient, en fonction de la saison, marinés ou non, avec des épices et des herbes fraîches rajoutés au dernier moment. Les courges sont mes chouchoutes en automne-hiver.
    Mais aussi les belles salades colorées de légumes râpés finement à la mandoline, avec des graines diverses et des algues.
    Mais mon porridge au sarrasin, ou mes “crunolas” au cacao du matin me sont aussi “indispensables :)

  • Vikki

    My favorite vegetarian recipe consists of bell and hot camino peppers from my garden, tofu, chopped green onions, grilled in my square grill pan, topped with toasted sesame seeds with a splash of soy sauce.

  • Susanne

    I like French recipes. I enjoy your new book. My favorite recipe is pasta(noodles with tomatoes,

  • Coryn

    I am so excited for your cookbook, congratulations! I’m a long-time reader of your blog and your delightful style and passion for food motivates me to try new recipes.
    A favourite vegetarian meal for me is Curried Chickpea Soup. Combines onion, apple, ginger, garlic, curry, cumin and coriander with chickpeas, some tomato sauce, coconut milk and sweet chili sauce into a warm spicy soup for cold Canadian winters. :)

  • Heidy

    Congratulations on your new book! What a good idea to release it in summer with all the lovely produce available…

    My favorite vegetarian dish right now is roasted butternut squash sauteed with baby kale or spinach and shitake mushrooms in olive oil with manchego cheese grated on top. The sweetness of the squash with the saltiness of the cheese is phenomenal! xx

  • Jennifer

    Im so excited to read your book! I have been getting a lot of favorite recipes from The Sprouted Kitchen lately. Especially her Strawberry-Leek Quesadilla. It sounds odd but its so delicious. I use sprouted tortillas 2 leeks cut & cooked in butter 10 min. Place the first tortilla down add goat cheese, cooked leeks, strawberries, and mozzerella. Then place the second tortilla on top. Flip carefully after 3-5 min. Cook the same time on the second side. It is such a treat and makes it feel like my birthday!

  • Tina

    Congratulations on your book! It is difficult to decide on a favourite ,but in the summer I would have to say anything with fresh tomatoes and in the winter an Egyptian lentil and rice dish ,served with a spicy tomato sauce ,fried onions and yogourt.

  • I am crossing my fingers and hoping – I’d love to win this cookbook!

  • Although I’m not a regular vegetarian but I love vegetable on my recipe occasionally.And this book is quite charming to me for it’s vast number of mouthwatering recipe which mentioned above on the post.Anyway, a hearty wish for this book & it’s author.

  • Geneviève Delisle

    J’adore la cuisine végétarienne, sans l’être moi-même à temps plein. C’est donc difficile de choisir une recette préférée, car il y en a beaucoup! J’adore la ratatouille au pois chiche, un plat qui met en valeur trois de mes légumes préférés : tomates, courgette et aubergine, et les pois chiches qui sont délicieux et polyvalent. Un régal d’automne.

  • Thavy Duong

    I am in school and cook for one, so I make a whole batch of something that I can reheat easily and eat throughout the week. I like to make a lentil stew that is spiced with chipotle and chili powder. I add in tomatoes and any leftover vegetables I have and wilt greens such as kale and spinach at the end. Then I garnish it with anything that might be good on a tortilla soup– such as corn tortilla, greek yogurt, and fresh vegetables such as corn, red peppers, cilantro, salsa and lime juice. I find that since I can switch up the fresh garnish, i don’t get tired of it, and it keeps great in the fridge for easy heating and a quick lunch.

  • Marie

    My favorite vegetarian recipe starts with whatever I have on hand. First, a trip to the garden, then to my pantry, then to the refrigerator, then to the spice bin. I’ve been a vegetarian for over 20 years (I ate meat in the 90s when I was able to raise and butcher it myself) so creating and serving yummy vegetarian fare is second nature. However, I crave inspiration from cookbooks such as your new one. I hope I win! Thank you for all your effort in producing what looks to be a book worth giving precious kitchen shelf space to!

  • Katherine

    As a vegetarian, it’s difficult for me to pick my favorite vegetarian dish! But one of our particular favorites is a Swiss chard tart inspired by a recipe from Russ Parsons. Swiss chard sauteed with garlic, and then combined with ricotta and chopped olives and topped with feta cheese. Delicious!

  • Patrick

    Come on, be simple! Marcella Hazan’s tomato sauce with butter and onion. This and a good pasta and you don’t need anything else!

  • Oh my dear, quelle affluence ! C’est dire combien ton livre fait envie, Clotilde… Qui ne tente rien n’a rien alors je joue le jeu.

    Mon plat végétarien préféré est le dal de lentilles en hiver et le gâteau à la ricotta (ou à la brousse, quand je suis en Corse !) et son tartare de légumes. 2 recettes que j’ai évidemment publiées sur mon blog !…

  • Rebeca

    Congratulations on the new book! Looks great.

    One of my favourite vegetarian recipes is a salad made of quinoa and chickpeas with roasted carrots and pine nuts. The carrots are roasted with about six different spices, which go very well with the lemony dressing.

  • Heidi

    I would love a French-inspired vegetarian cookbook! I just found your blog via Lost in Cheeseland and Ann Mah and am looking forward to following your culinary adventures! I have recently begun using a number of French recipes at home (which my family loves!), and I also just watched “Forks Over Knives” which makes a compelling case for plant-based eating. The French Market Cookbook would be a delicious way to apply that fabulous “je ne sais quoi” of French cooking to vegetables to make our eating at home more plant-based. (I also love the simple, chalkboard-style cover. It’s clean and attractive and makes me think of fresh, daily specials in the lovely one-of-a-kind restaurants and cafes in France.)
    I have lots of favorite vegetarian dishes, but at the moment I especially love Thai red curry with sweet potatoes, fresh basil, red bell pepper, tofu, and coconut milk.
    Meilleurs voeux pour votre nouveau livre de recettes ! Il parait etre deja tres reussi !

  • Stephanie

    Bonsoir! My very favorite veg recipe (and I’m always on the prowl for new ones) is an old roasted vegetable panzanella from Bon Appetit. It is perfect without any modification and so so delicious. I often do modify recipes to help them meet vegetarian standards (replace gelatin with agar, chicken with tofu, etc.). Thanks for your hard work and beautiful artistry. We cooks appreciate it!

  • Sophie

    sweet-roasted Mediterranean veg with lemony couscous and a poached egg – absolutely sublime, and disarmingly easy. This dish got me through my university finals…

  • Congratulations on your book, it looks awesome, Clotilde! I’ve just started running a farmers market stall, so I’d love a copy for inspiration to use up all those vegetables I bring home. My favourite vegetarian recipe involves a mix of freekah/pearl barley cooked in spices, with a roasted garlic dressing, tossed with any vegetables I have lying around – raw carrots, greens, roasted root vegetables, herbs, finished with nuts and a little soft cheese. Looking forward to taking a look at your lovely book!

  • Carolina

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is a barley salad, with eggplant, olives and pickled onions. It’s so satisfying! It was this salad that started to open my eyes to the idea of reducing meat in my diet.

  • Nivedita

    Congraulations, Clotilde! The book looks gorgeous! I can’t wait to check it out.
    My favorite vegetarian recipe is Mixed Beans in Broth from Deborah Madison’s Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. It is very simple, nutritious and tastes way better than it ought to, for something with so few ingredients and unfussy preparation. My other favourite recipe is Trouchia, also from the same book. Again, very nutritious, nobody I serve it to has ever heard of it, everybody likes it, including my 5 and 2 year olds. It can be served warm or tepid, made ahead, and easily doubled.

  • Scarlet

    Every year on our wedding anniversary I make Imam Bayildi for our special dinner.

    Although I’m an omnivore, there’s something about the velvety eggplant, rich tomato sauce and those little chewy grains of bulgur popping out of the eggplant flesh that is really sensuous and perfect.

    I use this recipe and wouldn’t change a thing.

  • Thanks for this great opportunity and your recipes!! I’m currently in love with a cold noodle salad with Feta cheese, tomatoes, rucola and zucchini. :-) So awesome for picknicking!

    Bonne journée !

  • Carole

    c’est avec les couscous végétariens que j’ai découvert que les plaisirs de la cuisine sans viande et surtout que je pouvais sentir que j’avais vraiment déjeuné, ou dîné… Culturellement, avant, il me fallait un morceau de viande pour faire un repas. J’aime particulièrement cette recette de couscous car elle se décline à l’envie selon les saisons et les placards!
    bien à toi

  • Congratulations on your new book – it looks fabulous. My current favourite vegetarian recipe is a roasted vegetable salad with grilled haloumi, preferably with Moroccan spices.

  • This is what I’ve been looking for, a Parisian vegetarian cookbook! I just adore the French cuisine with their subtle but rich flavors. And this recipe book is just perfect for people who want to stay healthy like me. Is this available in Amazon?

  • felix

    my favourite vegetarian meal would probably be a foie gras de canard entier with a sprig of parsley (so it’s vegetarian). but kidding aside, there are so many delicious vegetarian foods, that it’s hardly possible to name one single favourite: spaghetti napoli, really good fries with mayonnaise a cheese sandwich, topinambour soup or just plain chocolate… here i will write down a recipe for a vegetarian risotto loosely inspired by spaghetti alla puttanesca: finely chop onions, garlic and carrots and fry in olive oil, add risotto-rice and deglaze with vegetable stock. bring the heat down and let the risotto simmer for about 40 minutes, constantly stirring and bit by bit adding more stock. towards the end add pine seeds and roughly chopped capers and olives. when the rice is cooked, finish the risotto with parmesan, a good amount of butter and freshly ground pepper.

  • Bethany

    The book looks great, would love to add it to our collection.
    One of my favorite vegetarian dishes is a fruit and vegetable curry dish served over rice or couscous….it basically calls for in-season veggies, sautéed in a curry flavored broth, add coconut milk along with chopped fruit towards the end (think pineapple, mango, banana etc) and additional toppings of nuts and fresh cilantro. Quite lovely.

  • My favourite vegetarian recipe at the moment is a twist on traditional tabbouleh, with tons of fresh herbs, quinoa replacing the bulgar wheat and served swirled through with goat’s curd (which I’m currently addicted to!)

  • Linon

    Bonjour Clotilde,

    Merci pour cette possibilité de gagner un de tes livres.
    Au niveau de ma recette végétarienne préférée du moment, mon coeur balance entre une simple ratatouille estivale et une pizza aux légumes.
    Je vais choisir la deuxième option : une délicieuse pizza garnie avec des poivrons, de l’oignons, du brocolli, de la mozza… Hum… Comme je digère mal les aubergines, je n’en mets pas.

  • lainie grant

    I love to grill a round of brie, serve with grilled bread and fresh vegetables like mange tout , radishes and cherry tomatoes.!

  • Michelle

    There are so many! Hard to choose, but I do love chana masala. Thank you for the blog, and the new cookbook!

  • MarthaD

    Congratulations on the new book! It looks fantastic!
    Being Greek, we like to eat lots of vegetables. My favorite is stuffed peppers and tomatoes with rice, fresh tomatoes, spring onions, fresh herbs and baked in the oven with a few potatoes scattered here and there.

  • Marie

    Hej Clothilde, your book sounds great. My favourite veg dish is italian aubergine gratin, whatcha ma call it, I forgot the name. :D

  • Racheal

    My favorite vegetarian recipe right now is a cauliflower mac & cheese which resembles the actual pasta version so much you wouldn’t know the difference!

  • David Bruce

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is green tea soba noodles topped with blanched spinach, sesame seeds, sesame oil, soy sauce, umeboshi paste, yuzu kosho, shiitake mushrooms, and shiso leaves. Just an amazing array of flavors and textures.

  • Janice

    A german potato salad recipe I’ve recently tried. Yumm!

  • Denise Keplinger

    Felicitations, pour tes dix ans dans le blogosphere aussi bien que pour le livre magnifique.
    I am in Soquel, Calfornia where my local organic market has been selling green garlic (ail nouveau) & pea greens (the entire pea plant of the edible thin pod variety). I just rough chop both plants, do a quick sautee in the most flavorful olive oil (i use Pasolivo from Paso Robles) & season w/ sea salt, aleppo pepper or just a pinch of Dukkah, or if I want to go asian, a pinch of shrimp powder and a splash of soy sauce & une larme of rice vinegar. Everbody has been raving!

  • Dana

    I’d love to win a copy of your new book.

  • Dana

    Oops! I forgot to say what my favorite vegetarian recipe is: a frittata with mushrooms, asparagus and goat cheese.

  • oh my gosh, congratulations! Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy (whether I win or not :) My favorite vegetarian dish is tomatoes simmered for 20 mins, tossed with fresh ricotta and lots of basil, over pasta. We eat that at least once a week and never get tired of it.

  • Anita Schneider

    My favorite recipe is roasted broccoli with garlic and olive oil.
    It is so easy, tastes so good and is good for you. The garlic is not peeled so you squeeze it out, some are extra dark and caramelized. So good!

  • LeAnn

    Congratulations on your new book!

    My favorite vegetarian recipe is a pita pizza salad with blue cheese, roasted pears, and walnuts tossed with arugula in a sweet viniagrette.

  • Trish

    I saute fresh diced eggplant with 2-3 diced ripe tomatoes in some olive oil. Add dried oregano and fresh or dried basil, along with salt and pepper to the eggplant mixture. Then, lightly toast slices of good bread, and spread toasts with some roasted garlic and a thin layer of goat cheese. Top with the eggplant mixture. YUM!

  • Maria Carkagis

    My favourites are Fattoush Salad loaded with Sumac and Cumin seeds and my adapted Hoummus recipe with my preserved lemon and regional lemon myrtle olive oil. Both help to convert the hardest carnivores!

  • Maria

    I have lot of favorite vegetarian recipes but as everything starts to be on hand, its ratatouille time, its so good hot, cold or on toast. Wine is optional :)

  • Currently we’re sautéing everything in our csa box together, and throwing it with rice and tofu and some sauce: general tsao’s, sweet and sour, etc. Fresh and easy: yum!

  • MB

    I would love a copy of your book! I have many veg recipes I love, but a unique and amazingly tasty one:

    sri lankan beetroot curry:

    saute chopped onions in a pot
    with 2 tbsp curry powder (any kind will do but sri lankan curry powder would obviously be best)+ a few green chillies + teaspoon mustard seeds + tsp turmeric + tsp coriander powder + 5 curry leaves + 1 2-inch stick of cinnamon

    saute for a bit and then add beetroot chopped in 1-inch-thick matchsticks. add enough water to completely cover the beetroot (water ~ an inch above the beets) and then cook until the water evaporates by about 1/2 and the beets are completely cooked.

    Add 2 cups of coconut milk, cook a little bit longer and its done.

    I sometimes take a cup of this curry, add crushed kafir lime leaves and puree for a dip that is beyond description. People rave about this dip years after having it.

    The curry tastes particularly amazing the day after you make it when all spices meld together.


  • dma

    It’s hard to pick one! In summer, a salad focusing on ripe and flavourful in season tomatoes. In winter, some combination of beans and greens.

  • Stacy

    My favorite vegetarian dishes center around pasta with veggies.

  • David Bair

    But how can I have a favorite recipe when I haven’t slowly read the book cover to cover and tried out all the new ones yet?
    You’ve got to help me out just a bit, and then I can actually give you a real answer here!

  • Eileen

    What a great book to write- congratulations!

    We eat meatless several times a week. Right now it’s Summer so our fave is GF whole grain seeded bread, toasted & spread with Kale Walnut Basil Pesto then topped with a slice or two of fresh mozzarella & several thin slices of perfectly ripe tomato. Kiss the top with a bit of coarse salt & smokey pepper & it’s a feast for the ages!

    Thanks for the contest, and I hope they’re bought by the thousands.

  • Sarah Cook

    I have been a vegetarian for 8 years and have so many favorites but I would have to say a veggie loaf is my favorite. I would love to try all of your recipes from your cookbook so that I can have a new favorite! :)

  • Azahara

    I have been a vegan for 5 years and love absolutely everything I eat. In the summer I have a lot of big salads with grain, beans, veggies, fruit, nuts, and whatnot. I also love indulging in Jason Mraz’s chocomole from time to time.

    Lovely book! Can’t wait to get hold of a copy.

  • Colette Morris

    Simple – Marcella Hazan’s tomato sauce with spaghetti – and my kids love it too!

  • Our favorite vegetarian meal has to be a lovely spinach feta “burger” my daughters found on the blog Baked Bree. We make it every time they are home to visit. With two vegetarians in the family, I am always looking for inspiration and new recipes so I would love to own a copy of your new book.

  • Abby

    My favorite starts with sauteing chickpeas, carrots and red peppers in olive oil with some spices- usually cumin and hot paprika- and then they are served on top of couscous with lots of fresh parsley.

    Black beans – recipe from Deborah Madison, chef at Greens vegetarian restaurant in San Francisco – delicious!

  • Bonjour Clotilde,
    First of all, congratulations for your new book, I’m anxious to read it!
    Comme j’ai arrêté de manger de la viande lors de ma dernière grossesse, je suis toujours à essayer de nouvelles recettes, et mon plat préféré est aubergine au four.Je suis brésilienne et je réside en Belgique.

    wild mushroom risotto!

    My favourite vegetarian meal is something called ”sataraš” in Bosnian which is basically stewed peppers and tomatoes mixed with rice (many don’t put rice, but I prefer it that way), other would be cooked beans or lentils that I could always eat. Also, cooked spinach formed as a nest with a fried egg on top.

    Amazon delivered the pre-ordered book over the weekend, so I am so looking forward to trying the new recipes. Thank you, I enjoy you monthly newsletter and your tips when I have traveled to Paris.

  • Je te laisse un commentaire en français mais je lis parfaitement l’anglais culinaire et ton nouveau livre a l’air superbe.
    Mon plat végétarien favori, c’est sans doute le curry de légumes, que je fais avec du lait de coco, et que toute la famille mange avec plaisir.

    Always enjoy your articles – just arrived at your site when searching for info on Shiso – In the Japanese spirit one of my favorite vegetarian recipes is spinach rollups with sesame seeds. Your book looks great.

  • Deby Young

    your cookbook looks fabulous and would be a welcome addition to my collection. French + veg cuisine? A winning combo!

    My fave vegetarian dish…that’s tough. I have so many. What comes to mind now is a leek and potato soup. After so much hot weather I look forward to cool fall days and steamy bowls of soup!

    Thank you for the contest!

  • Just had one of my favourites for dinner:
    – one large cauliflower
    – 400g drained chick peas
    – 5 cloves garlic, crushed
    – 2 sliced onions
    – 1 tbsp raz al hanout
    – 1 tbsp cumin seeds (whole)
    – 1 tsp fennel seeds (whole)
    – salt, pepper
    – 1 tsp espelette or cayenne (in that case: less)
    – 20 cherry tomatoes
    – good slug of olive oil
    – flat leaf parsley

    Cut or break the cauliflower into chuncks. Mix everything very well except the parsley and put in an oven tray. Roast in a hot (220-240C) oven until golden brown spots appear and the cauliflower is just soft. Sprinkle over the parsley and serve with couscous and pita and, if you like, some yoghurt.

    Could be for four, but you might just eat it all with two (we just did ;-))

    I love cold, minty pea soup! Yummy

  • Mary Greene

    I used to make a lovely side-dish of grated courgettes, flavoured with tarragon baked in a light, creamy custard – almost like a souffle. You’ve reminded me that it’s far too long since I made it.

  • Madonna

    My copy arrived today. It’s a beautiful book, Clotilde. The timing is perfect, as I have the first tomatoes, squash, eggplant, green beans, and peppers of the season almost ready to pick. We have meatless Mondays at our house, and I’m planning to make the Corsican Bell Pepper Stew for our supper next Monday. I’ve already bookmarked several other recipes. I’m looking forward to fall already so I can make the pear and chestnut tart with freshly picked pears from a nearby orchard.

  • Thank you so much for participating, and for sharing those wonderful, inspiring ideas!

    The giveaway is now closed, and comments beyond this one won’t be taken into account.

    The results will be announced later today!

  • Kara

    I am new to vegetarian dining so I’m super basic right now, lots of salads, so this book would help me find my faves. :)

  • My favorite vegetarian recipe is simple, fried squash seasoned with salt and pepper. Malheureusement, I’m just discovering your blog pour la premiere fois, so I feel I’ve missed out a little. :-) I’d like to be entered in the contest, my e-mail is Thanks.

  • My favorite Vegetarian Recipe is actually anything with blueberries in it!

  • Jill

    Thanks for your latest book. Exquisite. Looking forward to trying many of the recipes. And, to giving copies to nieces / nephews / godchildren as they set up their own first homes. You are becoming to them what Julia and Simca were to me.
    Cheers from San Francisco.

    • Thank you so much, Jill, you made my day!

  • How compassionate and informed you are! I’ve never heard of a cookbook author like you; one who offers a detailed list of every recipe, listing possible allergens for those of us who have food restrictions. Infinite thanks. I just ordered your book.

    We were going to be in France at the end of Sept., but just had to cancel our tickets due to a calendaring conflict. I would love to have met you at your book signing. Another time perhaps.

    • Thank you very much, Gwendolyn. I’m so glad the list is helpful to you, and hope you get to come to Paris some other time!

  • Christine Teo
