Vegetables Every Day: The Definitive Guide to Buying and Cooking Today's Produce, with Over 350 Recipes - Jack Bishop Just picked this up yesterday at the used bookstore near my house. It's sometimes difficult for us to incorporate as many veggies as we need to into our diet, especially in terms of varying the recipe so it's not always such-and-such vegetable covered in seasoning X. Although I haven't had the chance to cook anything out of the book yet, the recipes mostly look simple and reasonably quick--wouldn't want to spend 2 hours cooking a side dish (although he does have some recipes that could be used for entrees, especially if you eat A LOT of veggies), without a lot of ingredients that I wouldn't consider pantry staples.

He does tend to lean heavily on Asian flavors for a lot of recipes, but the recipes also look easy to modify and/or experiment with, so I'm not bothered (and I love the stereotypical Asian flavors anyway).
