The Middle Eastern Vegetarian Cookbook

Salma Hage, 272 pp.

I've checked this out and returned it so many times I've almost forgotten it doesn't belong to me...
Definitely my favorite cookbook of 2016, this is a very comprehensive and straightforward collection of recipes.  The results are delicious, the instructions accurate and clear, and the photographs illustrative and appetizing but not stage-y.  I've had success with so many of these recipes: avocado tahini dip, chickpea kibbeh, freekeh, pomegranate and feta salad, roasted squash with spicy tahini dressing, quinoa stuffed peppers, and more.  Worth it for the recipe for Lebanese 7-spice mix alone, now a permanent fixture in my pantry.
