From the Inside Flap

1,000 Vegetarian Recipes Have you been searching for a collection of delicious vegetarian recipes? What about easy-to-prepare vegetarian recipes, or those that are healthful? Then 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes is the book for you—no other vegetarian cookbook comes even close. Author Carol Gelles has spent years creating recipes for a variety of tastes and needs, whether you're a beginner vegetarian, long-time vegetarian, or someone trying to eat meatless meals just a couple of times each week for better health. If you're a vegan (a vegetarian who doesn't eat eggs or dairy products), you've probably been frustrated in the past by vegetarian cookbooks that don't address your needs. Again, no other cookbook offers you as many choices as 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes, with hundreds of vegan recipes throughout (all clearly marked with a "V" at the tops of the recipes). And many of the lacto-ovo vegetarian recipes include vegan variations. You probably already know that the vegetarian lifestyle is a healthy one, but if you're looking specifically for low-fat recipes, those dishes are specially marked with a "healthy heart" symbol for easy reference. In addition to the 1,000 recipes, Gelles offers a bounty of information on vegetarian food, including cooking charts for beans and grains; shopping lists for stocking the vegetarian pantry; a glossary of ingredients; a lesson on the health benefits of a meatless diet; and menu-planning advice, with menu suggestions for every taste—Chinese, French, Mexican, Indian, and more. Whether you already own a dozen vegetarian cookbooks, or this will be your first, 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes is the one cookbook a vegetarian can't do without. A Few of the Delicious Meatless Recipes
  • Olive Caviar
  • Black Bean Hummus
  • Corn Fritters
  • Leek and Wild Rice Soup
  • Stuffed Young Eggplants
  • Spiced Couscous with Diced Vegetables
  • Springtime Pasta
  • Bulgur with Summer Squash
  • Mushroom-Leek Tart
  • Lentil Shepherd's Pie
A Main Selection of the Doubleday Health Book Club and a Featured Alternate Selection of the Literary Guild Doubleday Book Club and Crossings Book Club.

If you've been searching for healthy, easy, and delicious meatless recipes, this is the book for you. "Addressing the needs of the beginner, the part-timer, and the fully committed vegetarian, this cookbook is a must-have…" —Cooking Light Magazine "Actually several cookbooks in one, this encyclopedic volume has it all—good basics for the aspiring vegetarian, innovative recipes that will appeal to long-time ardent vegetarians, and plenty for everyone in between." — New York Daily News Visit Hungry Minds, Inc. online at www.hungryminds.com

Very simple and easy to follow.

What's really great about this book is that there are so many recipes that even those of us who aren't vegetarians can enjoy.

I own just about every vegetarian cookbook around, and this is one of the best.

My mother in-law bought me this book shortly after I married her son. I think she was a little worried that he wouldn't eat well because he married a vegetarian. Our first year of marriage I used only this cookbook and a few recipes my mom had given me. I can't tell you how exciting it was to sit down, read through a section of the book, write a grocery list for the items I would need, write out a dinner menu for the whole week and then call my friends to tell them what I was fixing on each night and ask them what sounded good to them so they could join us for dinner. I did this for several months until my evenings were filled with other activities. (Eating was definitely an activity when it came to using this book.) I have enjoyed every recipe I have used from this book. And they're so easy!! Here are a few of my recommendations (I don't have page numbers in front of me): The Barbecue Red Beans, Corn and Rice; Manicotti; Fajitas; Falafel; Hummus; Black Bean Hummus; and so many more. My only problem with some of the recipes is that I'm not a big salt eater and so I changed a few of the measurements on some recipes. And also, because she uses a lot of cheese (which is my favorite food) I gained a lot of weight that year. I do love the fact that she doesn't suggest using lowfat or non-fat foods to make the recipes but use caution. This is a "must have" cookbook if you love eating really good food!!

As a single male living alone, my average meals usually consisted of hot dogs, corn chips and soda. Then I met this girl (a vegan). I soon found myself on the web looking for vegetarian recipes when Carol Gelles's book caught my eye. I liked the idea of having 1000 possibilities to woo my lady with. I first tried Springtime Pasta (page 191) A BIG HIT! Then I tried Mexicali Stew (page 142) it was VERY EASY! For desert, I tried the Apple-Strawberry Tart (page 524). It must have worked as we will be married in the fall! Thank you Carol Gelles! I look forward to trying many other tempting recipes in the future and hope to see more books from you soon.

1,000 Vegetarian Recipes got me started cooking and I haven't stopped since. The difficulty with most cookbooks is that if you are a vegetarian you must seek and sort out the recipes which don't use some sort of animal flesh product. 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes makes it simple - every single recipe is meatless - therefore appropriate for my household. Carol Gelles also has a coded system for the different types of vegetarian diets (Lacto-Ovo, Lacto, Ovo and Vegan). She even includes a review of nearly every recipe and alternative ways of making them. I've gone from being a non cooking person to being known for my great talents in the kitchen. My secret being this one book! I'm planning to make every single recipe. I also recommend it to everyone I know. It's the best thing that ever happened to our kitchen.

My husband is vegan and I am allergic to soy. Thinking of things to fix on a daily basis was not an easy task before we found this book. I must use this book at least once if not twice a week. Everything I have made-refried beans, vegetable curry, roasted red pepper tomato soup to name a few-have been wonderful.
Enjoy!!

I own just about every vegetarian cookbook around, and this is one of the best. The recipes require just enough effort necessary to make a truly delicious meal. They're not NO FAT/NO FLAVOR, but rather a little fat, and great, great flavor. And if you like this one, you'll love Didi Emmon's Vegetarian Planet (which is slightly better!).

With 1000 recipes packed in this volume, one could never run out of ideas about what to cook. There is literally something for everyone. Some dishes are quick and easy to cook, allowing me to put a meal together on busy weekday evenings. Other dishes take more time or expertise and so become weekend meals. I have taken numerous dishes to pot luck suppers and have gotten raves from the tasters. In the teacher's cafeteria during the school year, everyone wants to know what I am eating and often remark things like "that smells good." Our family definitely has our favorite recipes and it is the book we use most often. I frequently have given this book as a gift, and the recipients often thank me over and over again. Eating vegetarian is made delicious by this award-winning book!

I bought this cookbook right after I was married to try to introduce my husband to vegetarian meals (Bratwurst Boy). I have been a *mostly* vegetarian for 11 years now. This cookbook has been used over and over again for the five years of our marriage, as can be seen by the stains on the pages. The recipes are easy to prepare, don't use too many ingredients, are full of flavor, and my husband LOVES them. And with so many recipes you don't have the same meal for about 6 months! There is a section showing different recipe combinations for formal/informal dinners, and a section that explains some of the more "unusual" ingredients (but can still be found in the grocery store). It's a great book--try it!! Your heart and body and taste buds will love you! And so will your husband!
