The recipes use a wide variety of ingredients. So, you'll never get bored if you cook from it on a regular basis. The variety in the collection also allows you to make use of fruits and vegetables that are in season throughout the year.
The time required to prepare most dishes is under an hour. This makes the book ideal for weekday cooking, a time when most of us should be eating better, but don't due to busy schedules. I made the vegetable chowder for dinner last night. I needed about an hour total. The result was a delicious, healthy, lowfat meal in a bowl. Perfect for a hectic Wednesday.
Finally, I'd like to say that everything I've cooked from this book has tasted FABULOUS! I haven't missed the fat. I love the fresh ingredients, particulary the use of herbs. And I love the fact that I'm eating healty food that also tastes wonderful.
Hats off to Mollie Katzen and the Moosewood crew. This book is a godsend.
When the 15th anniversary edition came out, I bought it so I could have a nice, not-falling-apart copy. Even though the cover stated "New Revised Edition". Unfortunately, the recipes had been edited, mostly to remove fat. Some recipes were gone altogether (e.g. Pakora and Tempura Vegetables). Others had eggs and cheese completely or partially replaced by other extra flavors; "Cheese Beans" became "Tart and Tangy Baked Beans", with cheese optional, an extra apple, plus molasses and cider vinegar. I tried both and liked the first much, much better, as with other recipe edits.
I bought this 40th anniversary edition for the same reason I bought the 15th. Unfortunately, there was no warning on the cover that I was getting the revised recipes. This isn't the 40th anniversary edition of the original Moosewood Cookbook, it's the 25th anniversary edition of the 15th anniversary edition.
I wish I could get a new copy of the original book.
Regarding the cookbook itself, it contains hundreds of vegetarian recipes for soups, salads, sauces, sandwiches, spreads, entrees and desserts. This is a most helpful cookbook for anyone who is a vegetarian (or would like to become a vegetarian) and wants to eat consistently tasty, appetizing meals.
