Occasionally Eggs: Simple Vegetarian Recipes for Every Season
By Alexandra Daum
A beautiful debut cookbook exploring the bounty of the seasons, filled with more than 110 simple vegetarian recipes.
In my first cookbook, Occasionally Eggs, I’ll show readers how simple it can be to cook healthy(ish) vegetarian meals with local fruits and vegetables, and pantry staples, like grains and legumes. Largely plant-based, with the exception of occasional uses of honey and eggs, this book will inspire you to include fresh, local produce in your daily meal preparation.
Equal parts instruction and inspiration, with substitutions, tips, and tricks to allow for intuitive cooking based on what you have on hand. This is truly a year-round recipe collection and a book you’ll turn to for years to come.

This book is brimming with the best balance of creative and surprising recipes, with familiar classics, reimagined. I love how Alexandra weaves her love of seasonality and earth connection throughout the whole book. Her approach to food, in a listen-to-your-body kind of way, is a balancing antidote to the often intimidating and narrow ways we’ve come to understand ‘healthiness.’ Bravo!SARAH BRITTON, holistic nutritionist and creator of My New Roots
