Vegetarian Cooking With Mollie KatzenDownload audio (MP3)
Mollie Katzen may be the person most responsible for bringing vegetarian cooking to the mainstream. Her 1977 classic "The Moosewood Cookbook" sold about 4 million copies, and her later book "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest" became a cookbook standard. Now, more than 35 years later, the Berkeley resident has released a book of vegetarian recipes for a new generation called "The Heart of the Plate." She's cut back on the rich cream and butter that helped convince meat eaters they could make do with a vegetarian entree, in favor of lighter dishes full of fresh vegetables. Katzen joins us to share her recipes and ideas from decades of vegetarian cooking and eating.
