Joanna Pruess, author of Griswold and Wagner Cast Iron Cookbook, now puts to use the delectable medium of cast iron for vegetarian dishes. As the most versatile tool in your kitchen, cast-iron cookware can make a variety of dishesall you have to do is use your imagination! Cast-iron cookware is a jack-of-all-trades: holding heat evenly, lasting virtually forever, and providing a unique cooking surface that only improves with age. It was probably your mother’s favorite panand her mother’s before her.

Adapted from Griswold and Wagner Cast Iron Cookbook, this comprehensive guide is the perfect addition to any vegetarian’s bookshelf. Featuring vegetarian dishes such as a Swiss cheese and apple frittata, deep-dish vegetarian pizza, mini cast-iron skillet cornbread, zucchini pancakes, raspberry-blackberry crisp, and much more from Griswold and Wagner Cast Iron Cookbook, along with new recipes never seen before, Cast Iron Vegetarian Cookbook will have you in the kitchen with veggies in hand before you even flip past the first recipe.

Cast iron is the ideal material for many techniques, as seen from the recipes chosen for this book: Caramelizing apples, glazing butternut squash, roasting asparagusall are described in scrumptious detail. Also here are directions on seasoning and keeping your cast-iron skillet in pristine shape, whether it’s been passed down from cook to cook or it’s something you found cheap at a tag sale. This book celebrates the comfort, pleasure, and joy of food.

To Nicole, Ben, and Justin: You are, as always, my source of pride and inspiration.

And for my late mother, Harriet Rubens, who worked very hard to remember those recipes from so long ago.

One is considered fortunate nowadays if by chance one of these iron utensils is handed down to them from the second to the third generation.
