bye, bittman.

I’m sad that Mark Bittman’s New York Times’ column “The Minimalist” is coming to an end. I’ll miss his quirky instructional videos and elegantly simple (… dare I say “minimal”?) vegetarian recipes.

Here are a few of my favorite Bittman recipes. I make these regularly and am grateful to Bittman for years of wonderful recipes and commentary on health and sustainability. His column is one of the reasons I love to cook.

Often the simplest combinations of whole foods are the most delicious, elegant, and comforting. Thanks to Mark Bittman for teaching me that. lv, molly

  2. i loved his rotating intros to the video versions of his recipes on the sunday times website… they were campy and hilarious. I keep a print out of his pantry staples list in my cookbooks to refer too… i use them all religiously.
