The Moosewood was one of the very first Vegetarian restaurants to open in New York in the 1970s, and this cookbook is a staple in any vegetarian, vegan, or omnivore's collection.
“In 1974, Mollie Katzen hand-wrote, illustrated, and locally published a spiral-bound notebook of recipes for vegetarian dishes inspired by those she and fellow cooks served at their small restaurant co-op in Ithaca, NY. Several iterations and millions of copies later, the Moosewood Cookbook has become one of the most influential and beloved cookbooks of all time–listed by the New York Times as one of the best- selling cookbooks in history, inducted into the James Beard Award Cookbook Hall of Fame, and coined a Cookbook Classic by the International Association of Culinary Professionals. The Moosewood Cookbook has inspired generations to cook simple, healthy, and seasonal food.”
For my main Christmas Dinner dish, I created their easy, vegan Ratatouille. I made it my own however, by using only squash as i am allergic to Eggplant. Click the photo below for Ingredients and directions!
