120 seasonal, flexible vegetable-forward recipes for family and friends that answer the question “what do I make for dinner when I feel overwhelmed?' from the Sara Forte, of the Sprouted Kitchen blog and Cooking Club.

Around Our Table is Sara Forte’s third and most personal cookbook. It comes from years of work on the Sprouted Kitchen blog and Cooking Club, which has provided insights into how people actually want to cook and what obstacles they face.

In Around Our Table, Sara shares her honest and unfussy insights from heavy lifting sauces that can work for multiple meals, to truly flexible meals (accommodating picky kids, dietary restrictions, and time limitation), tips on which dinners will travel well, feed a group, and freeze well. With ideas for all of life’s big moments; meals for birthdays, bridal showers, and meals to deliver to families with new babies, or sick relatives. The book contains sample menus for easy entertaining, and make-ahead meals in an approachable, forgiving way that relies on a mix of homemade and packaged ingredients.

Through 120 recipes, she shares her perspective on how she feeds her family and friends with dishes like Mexican Caesar Brussels with Cornbread Crispies, Chicken Parmesan Meatballs, and a Gingersnap Pumpkin Tart. These are endlessly flexible recipes, and headnotes and sidebars will include tips to prep ahead and swaps for making dishes gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan or vegetarian.

Sara’s writing is like talking to a friend who has a little more kitchen experience than you and understands the obstacles you’re up against.

Industry Reviews
"While not strictly vegetarian, the book is produce-forward: [Sarah's] lentil and quinoa salad brings in arugula, feta, and peaches; she sets a butternut squash steak over quinoa and tops with a crunchy, spicy apple relish. In addition to make-ahead tips, she includes useful signposts to help if you need to prep dinner in little windows throughout the day."--Maggie Hoffman, Epicurious,

"As a busy parent myself, this book is a breath of fresh air. It solves the never-ending question: How do I get a nourishing meal on the table night after night?! I love Sara's realistic approach to cooking, which is fast and efficient enough for harried weeknights, along with other recipes that require a bit more time for those slow weekend days. But above all, these recipes aim to please the palates of selective young eaters, while still keeping the grown-ups very happy and well fed indeed."--Sarah Britton, holistic nutritionist and author of My New Roots
"I have been lucky to taste many of the recipes in this book and I can assure you it is full of honest, nourishing, and delicious food. A go-to book for every cook."--Aran Goyoaga, creator of Cannelle et Vanille and 3-time James Beard Finalist
"I love that Sara can distill a recipe down to its essentials and shortcuts, but still make it so very special. People remember how you make them feel, and this is especially true with cooking and entertaining. With this collection of recipes, I know that guests around Sara's table (and users of this book!) will feel excited, nourished, and cared for."--Laura Wright, author of The First Mess Cookbook
"Real food for real life! Around Our Table is a book I'll be gifting all the hard-working, busy parents in my life. Filled with colorful and flavor-packed meals, the recipes are practical and adaptable, emphasizing all the ways anchoring your cooking in real, whole foods is achievable."--Heidi Swanson, author, Super Natural Cooking
"Sara cooks the food that I want to eat every day. In Around Our Table she writes beautifully about feeding her family and includes practical tips and a game plan that makes these bright, veggie-packed recipes feel doable, even for the busiest people."--Yossy Arefi, author of Snacking Bakes and Snacking Cakes
