Hi & Happy New Year. I have a nut loaf recipe which I will dig out of the file box and post. (a little late probably). Also Kohlrabi can simply be peeled (to be honest I haven't eaten it unpeeled), diced and boiled/steamed until tender and serves with butter/cream. It can be made into a delicate creamed soup. Yum enjoy Kali! Nate & Pete - I have the same book, it's a gem!

I have grown some kohlrabi for the first time and don't know what to do with them, they are about the size of a tennis ball

We recently acquired a copy of The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook (a large book with asparagus on the cover) and we're liking it as much as Katharine does :) The pictures are most inspiring!

A well-used book from the kitchen shelf is Cooking Naturally by Maria Middlestead. Very substitution-friendly for when you don't have any of an ingredient, and everything in the book will work out fine if made with the dairy-free and gluten-free options.

The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook by Murdoch Books is another great one. It has a huge variety of receipes and a fantastic introduction that has heaps of information about how to ensure that you are getting all you nutritional requirements. My favourite section explains how to combine foods to ensure you are getting complete protein and the 'hero foods' for vegetarians. I've also got a copy of 'Meals without Meat' that Stefanie recommeded and I find it good too.
I cooked the lentil loaf from that one for dinner tonight, YUM!

Madhur Jaffrey's books are brilliant. I have 'Eastern Vegetarian Cooking' and 'Madhur Jaffreys World Vegetarian.

The Modern Vegetarian by Maria Ellis is great. More details on my blog

Alison & Simon Holsts Meals without Meat is great, and has lots of vege versions of standard NZ meals like lasagne and shepherds pie. Also look out for the Vegetarian Society recipe book, lots of local ingredients and favourites.
