Bittman is, of course, known for his Minimalist column in the New York Times dining section, for his popular How to Cook Everything series of cookbooks, and for his cooking show on PBSall of which stress an informal style of cooking, as befits the Minimalist title.
This book, obviously, puts Bittman's spin on vegetarian cooking. The first recipe we'll be highlighting from it will be along shortly, but, as always, let's take care of business.
We've got five (5) of these to give away this week. Simply tell us in the comments: What's your favorite vegetarian recipe?
Winners will be chosen at random, and commenting will close at 3 p.m. ET Saturday (November 3). The usual Serious Eats contest rules apply.
