Vegetarians, meat-lovers and anyone seeking to add more vegetables to their diet will find inspiration in this vegetable-centric cookbook. Vegetables Please (DK Publishing, 2013), by Carolyn Humphries, gives a fresh look into vegetarian cooking. But have no fear omnivores; there are optional meat suggestions for every recipe, too. In this excerpt, from the section “Tortillas, Frittatas, and Omelets,” learn the secrets of making this perfectly fluffy, cheese soufflé omelet recipe.

If making more than one omelet, serve each as it is ready, as their lovely texture is rapidly lost as they cool. Serve with crusty bread and a green salad.
