Love and Lemons Every Day: More than 100 Bright, Plant-Forward Recipes for Every Meal: A Cookbook (Hardcover)
The ultimate guide for cooking outrageously delicious, vegetable-packed meals every day of the week, from bestselling author of The Love & Lemons Cookbook.
Known for her insanely flavorful vegetable recipes and stunning photography, Jeanine Donofrio celebrates plants at the center of the plate with more than 100 new vegetarian recipes in Love & Lemons Every Day. In this book, Jeanine shows you how to make any meal, from breakfast to dessert, where produce is the star. Butternut squash becomes the best creamy queso you've ever eaten, broccoli transforms into a zesty green "rice" burrito filling, and sweet potato blends into a smooth chocolate frosting. These exciting and approachable recipes will become instant additions to your family's regular meal rotation.
This book is a resource, filled with smart tips for happier, healthier eating. You'll find inspiration from Jeanine's signature colorful infographics - such as a giant matrix of five-ingredient salad dressings, a guide to quick weeknight pastas, and a grid to show you how to roast any vegetable. There are also plenty of practical charts, such as a template to make versatile vegetable broth, seasonal produce guides, and clever ideas to use commonly tossed vegetable parts -- you'll never toss those cauliflower cores, corn cobs, or broccoli stalks again!
Packed with imaginative every day meals, go-to cooking tips, alternatives for dietary restrictions, and guides for mastering produce-based kitchen staples, Love & Lemons Every Day is a must-have for herbivores and omnivores alike.

“For years, Love & Lemons has been my go-to guide for vegetable-packed inspiration in the kitchen. Love & Lemons Every Day, Jeanine's latest and most vibrant project yet, is the tangible incarnation of why her work is so popular and appealing. It's loaded with positive, practical, and passionate recipes that make cooking every day a true joy, as well as endless smart tips for healthier, happier eating!”

“Love & Lemons Every Day is going to be a new staple on my bookshelf. First of all, the recipes are SO GOOD. They're vegetarian without sacrificing anything, and they're totally drool-worthy (Lasagna Soup—like, what!?) but don't require spending your whole night in the kitchen. Then there are the add-ins, sprinkled throughout the book like delectable little bonus morsels: how to use food scraps and freeze herbs, easy salad dressing formulas, and more. It’s a book that will inspire people to get excited about healthy food, but more important, a book that will actually enable them to cook it in their daily lives.”
—Liz Moody, Food Director at mindbodygreen and author of Healthier Together
“Being a California girl, Jeanine’s approach to food speaks deep into my heart. Her new book is bright, fresh, and filled with everyday recipes that beautifully celebrate what is so special about cooking with what is in season.”
—Tiffani Thiessen, actress and author of Pull Up a Chair

"A picture is worth a thousand words, and that is what this cookbook offers—a multitude of photographs of food that tempt the reader to create recipes from Love and Lemons Every Day."
—New York Journal of Books
