The How to Cook Everything Vegetarian app houses more than 2,000 recipes, menu ideas, Bittman’s recipe picks, and more. Each recipe features easy-to-filter labels, including Fast, Make Ahead, Vegan, and Essential, in addition to an overview and variations for each. Bittman, a supporter of Meatless Mondays, questions our treatment of animals in a recent piece in his NYT Opinionator column.
