I saw this cookbook on the Today Show this morning & the recipes sounded very yummy:

How to Cook Everything Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food
by Mark Bittman

One of the recipes they highlighted was an African dish called Peanut Soup - with tomatoes, kale, sweet potatoes, red onions, garlic, ginger & yes, a bit of peanuts & a small dollop of peanut butter for a flavor accent. It looked & sounded absolutely delicious.

Thy also showed Baked Apples with Blue Cheese Filling - halved apples baked with butter & apple juice. Cook cut-side down until half-cooked. Flip over, fill the hollowed-out cores with a dollop of blue cheese, a bit of sage leaf, salt & pepper to taste. Return to the oven to cook to finish. Yum! A new twist on an old winter standby.

The Amazon reviews looked good, as did one of the highlighted recipes on the Amazon page - "Crunchy Corn Guacamole", with several variations included as well, in case you have other ingredients on hand.

Has anyone tried this cookbook yet?

We can verify that the African Peanut Soup was quite good. We had good friends over who are not afraid to tell us the straight dope, and have pretty discerning tastes, and we all enjoyed it, most going back for seconds.
