The New Moosewood Cookbook
This book, originally published by Mollie Katzen in 1977; has been listed as one of the top-selling cookbooks of all time by the New York Times. It's filled with hearty and healthy vegetarian dishes that everyone can enjoy from soups to salads, casseroles to pastas. It's the perfect cooking guide for any gift recipient, whether they're a novice herbivore or a green guru.
Gift card to Green New American Cuisine/ Nami
Although the idea of vegetarian dinning was planted long ago, it's taken some time to spread its roots in metro Phoenix. Fortunately this city now has a handful of quality, earth-friendly eateries including the doubly located Green New American Cuisine in Tempe and Phoenix, which serves everything from burgers and fries, to stir fries and pastas.
And the literal icing on the cake? Nami Bakery and Soft Serve sits just next-door to the Green in Central Phoenix, catering to the sweet teeth of vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free eaters alike. Because giving up meat is one thing- but giving up chocolate? That's a whole different story.
