Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Featuring 225 simple recipes for everything from breakfast to dessert, this volume makes it easy for would-be vegetarians to try meat-free eating, occasionally or every day. There are plenty of approachable dishes for the I-donÖt-do-tofu crowd: three-cheese lasagna rolls; macaroni and cheese deluxe; spaghetti with pesto and tomato and mozzarella salad. "The Flexible Vegetarian" chapter describes how to make recipes such as Chinese orange stir-fry and fried rice with and without meat. (Oddly, these recipes--which have seafood and meat as options on the ingredient lists--are often labeled with a V for vegan.) Most desserts are vegetarian; the "Sweet & Fruity Desserts" chapter offers a handful of vegan recipes, including vegan chocolate chip–walnut brownies and deep chocolate vegan cupcakes, which improve the chapterÖs usefulness. A foreword by Good HousekeepingÖs food director implies that the recipes to follow are for "delicious healthful meals," but simply omitting meat doesnÖt make food healthy. A nacho casserole, for example, calls for a can of condensed cheddar cheese soup, a bag of tortilla chips, and a can of refried beans. Readers who want to follow a vegetarian diet for health reasons should choose recipes from this book carefully.

"Good Housekeeping Family Vegetarian Cooking: 225 Recipes Everyone Will Love" will appeal to a wide audience, from transitioning vegetarians (Chapter Nine is devoted to "the Flexible Vegetarian") to vegans (vegan recipes are clearly marked with a "v", and many recipes include sidebars on how to make a given recipe vegan).** One of my main problems as a vegetarian is how to make meals exciting; "Family Vegetarian Cooking" spices up meals with additions such as Macaroni and Cheese Deluxe, studded with peas, blue cheese, cherry tomatoes and toasted walnuts, or the Wheat-Berry Pilaf with Green Beans and Cranberries, rich with carrots, celery, onion, green beans and a dash of orange peel. There are loads of ethnic-inspired recipes like Vegetarian Souvlaki, Gingery Spinach-Lentil Stew, Vegetable Curry, Farro Risotto with Butternut Squash, Nacho Casserole, and Grilled Eggplant Caponata Salad to add zest to your meals. In addition to fresh fruits and veggies, you'll find a wealth of grains, including farro, wheat berries, barley, quinoa, and bulgur cleverly worked into salads, veggie burgers, pilafs and casseroles. If you're still of the mindset that "vegetarian" equals "sprouts and avocados," you'll find that as well, but with so many surprising (and mostly healthy) flavor combos, why not try something new tonight?

Inside, you'll find breakfast options, soups, salads, and sandwiches, stir fries and sautés, casseroles, a chapter on grilling veggies and the aforementioned "flexitarian" chapter that caters to everyone (you use half meat and half tofu). There are many flexitarian Asian recipes in particular, including several stir fries, miso soup, and coconut curry soup.

I borrowed this book from our local library and really enjoyed the recipes so far. I am not a vegetarian but wanted to learn how to cook with certain vegetables that I usually don't buy - just because I don't know how to prepare them.

The book is well organized and the recipes are flavorful. The pictures definitely motivate me even more. I have multiple cookbooks and this one is very organized, easy to follow and all the ingredients are easy to find in my local grocery store. The book also has quite the variety of vegan recipes which I have yet to try. I just ordered it as I think it is a keeper.

I only recently became a vegetarian. Growing up in the Midwest, every meal was centered around meat, so when I stopped eating it, I didn't really know how to plan my meals. I checked this book out from the library and found it so helpful and the recipes so delicious that I bought it. It has suggestions on how to make most of the recipes vegan, and also has a section with meals you can add meat to, if others in your household aren't vegetarian. But my husband, a meat-eater, loves the straight vegetarian meals as much as the "flexitarian" ones. Our favorite recipe is the Nacho Casserole!

A solid "A-" cookbook. We're not a strictly vegetarian family, but we do try to "eat vegetarian" at least four times a week -- and this cookbook has been a great way to expand the options. One of the other things that I enjoy about this cookbook is that it clearly marks vegan meals while also embracing "flexitarianism" and offering ways of adapting certain meals to include a little meat if you'd prefer to do so.

I originally took this book out of the library and found so many usable recipes that I went on Amazon and ordered it. Price was good and I had it before I had to return the library book!

It has good, easy-to-do recipes for someone who is new to trying to use more vegetables and less meat. But the first recipe I tried had an item in the list of ingredients that was never mentioned in the directions! And the second one I tried dirtied every pot, pan and cookie sheet in the house! It was really good though.

I got this book at the library first.
I am not vegetarian but after going through it, I saw some really great, simple recipes so I bought the book.

So far I really like this cookbook - everything I've made has been tasty. Even my family, who are not vegetarians, have enjoyed the vegetarian meals I've made from using the recipes in this book. I like that the recipes are easy to make using ingredients that I'm familiar with. I love the pictures which help me to see what my finished product should look like. I'd recommend this book.
