Wells's (One World Vegetarian Cookbook) latest focuses on small plates that can be mixed and matched to form tapas- or mezze-style meals. Recipes are organized alphabetically for the most part, with Desserts and Drinks in a separate section. She also includes menu suggestions; for instance, she recommends serving an Ecuadorian Casserole with Green Lentils alongside Marinated Cabbage Salad and Gingery Mashed Potato with Yogurt. Icons indicate vegan and vegan-adaptable dishes. VERDICT Vegetarians who like variety will enjoy combining these flavorful dishes, most of which can be made in 40 minutes or fewer.

Moving toward a more vegetable-based diet is the only sustainable and healthy way to feed the world. The extraordinary abundance of nutritious plant foods gives great opportunities to conjure them into delicious, planet-friendly meals. Some of the best non-meat dishes come from Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and presented here are the very highlights. This cookbook has tastes for every palate.
