Editorial Reviews

Review

“[N]ovice cooks can whip up healthful, flavorful meals in record time. Lemlin’s latest, which emphasizes simple preparations and nutritious (e.g., low-fat, whole grain) ingredients, is as useful now as it was 25 years ago.”
―Library Journal

“Jeanne Lemlin has always been one of my favorite vegetarian authors. There is so much variety and flavor in Jeanne’s simple seasonal preparations that I could cook a different vegetarian meal every night of the week.“
Sara Moulton, host of the PBS show Sara’s Weeknight Meals and author of Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners

“In a crowded field of vegetarian cookbooks, Lemlin’s stands out for straightforward good food.”
Newsweek

“Lemlin’s food is quick and comforting, the kind you’re always in the mood to eat.”
Washington Post

“This is a compendium of hearty vegetarian fare with a relaxed approach to cooking and a particularly noteworthy extended section on desserts.”
―CSMonitor.com

“The easy recipes are alive with flavor and zest. Whether one is a vegetarian is incidental. This book inspires a new and fresh direction for home cooking.”
Marion Cunningham, author of The Fanny Farmer Cookbook

“It takes enormous culinary flair and expertise, good sense, and also courage to marry the tastes of different cultures in a way that really works. Jeanne Lemlin has achieved this brilliantly.”
Claudia Roden, author of The Food of Spain

“All the elements are intelligently related to one another to give an overall sense of focus and balance to the meal . . . and convey a sense of cooking which is flexible and relaxed.”
Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America’s Farmers’ Markets

“The recipes are light, flavorful, varied, and drawn from many international cuisines. I was especially happy to see desserts that no dessert lover could resist. Jeanne Lemlin really knows what tastes good.”
Richard Sax, author of From the Farmer’s Market

If you have been a vegetarian for some time and you have a lot of vegetarian cook books, you will want to look elsewhere for your next cook book. This will not give you "new and exciting", but it will deliver a large range of all-purpose vegetarian dishes that will please you. If you are looking for just one general vegetarian cook book, this may be just what you are looking for.

I can't possibly give it a five-star rating, because any and all of Deborah Madison's books are much better. I'd give this one a 3.5 if I could. You should check out Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen, and Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison's Kitchen before deciding on this one.

I checked this book out of my library several weeks ago and found enough new ideas and some great recipes that I'll get my own copy when I can find a good used copy.

In the mean time, I've copied a few "keepers": Pate Brisee with Whole Wheat Flour (great for vegetable tarts), a pancake recipe made with maple syrup and whole wheat, a nice recipe for Irish Soda Bread with whole wheat, a Creamy Dill Dressing (for cukes and such), a Cold Cucumber and Watercress Soup, Buttermilk Herb and Onion Tart, an ingenious Rolled Stuffed Lasagna with Kale in a Tomato Cream Sauce, several nice grain pilafs, Brussels Sprouts with Lemon-Soy Glaze, Zucchini, Red Pepper and Snow Pea Saute, Honey-Glazed Sugar Snap Peas with Carrots, Chilled Green Beans with Sesame Sauce and a Rutabaga Gratin. There is also an interesting Maple Pecan Pie. And, for some reason, I think her idea to put Puttanesca Sauce on polenta (or grits) is terrific.

This cookbook is a bit of a conundrum to me. It is advertised as a compendium of quick and easy, but healthy and flavorful, vegetarian recipes. "Novice cooks can whip up healthful, flavorful meals in record time," reads one of the top editorial reviews.

For the most part, Lemlin delivers on these promises. The recipes are basic, and most of the ones we've tried (with a couple of notable exceptions) have been pretty tasty. But healthful? We clearly have a different understanding of what that word means. Without fail, Lemlin's recipes rely on an absolutely inordinate amount of fat. Four out of five recipes will have you stir in 2 or 3 tablespoons of butter at the end, just for the hell of it! Who does that?! She will sauté an onion in ¼ cup of olive oil, when a tablespoon would do. It's mind-boggling, and it generates reactions of astonishment every time this book is used in our kitchen.

That said: the recipes are generally pretty good, even once we've omitted the fat. To give an idea, on a typical Lemlin recipe we will use half or less of the olive oil she calls for, and cut the butter completely, and the outcome will still be a delicious (and much more healthy) vegetarian dish. There have been a few bland-o-rama recipes we've stumbled upon, and in general we've been underwhelmed by her recipes for standard condiments (i.e. her pesto and her veggie broth), but in those cases when we've been let down, the lack has been in herbs and spices, not a need for more butter (seriously!). Overall, most of her recipes are decent, especially for busy worknights or new vegetarians who are still feeling their way around what you can do without meat.

So for flavor and ease, I'd give it 4 stars. For my need to alter, without fail, every single recipe because of her obsession with fat... it gets knocked back to a 3.

I cannot rave more about a vegetarian cookbook. I bought the first edition in 1987 and I have worn it out!! I was thrilled to see that Amazon carried the re-issue in paperback and bought three copies: one for myself and two to give as gifts. I am not a vegetarian, but I do enjoy an occasional vegetarian meal, especially in the summer when there is so much fresh produce available, but Jeanne's book makes winter vegetarian eating special too!! And the menus are superb!! It is so much fun to make an entire vegetarian meal as a surprise for my veggie friends. Thank you for bringing this wonderful book back!

The recipes are quick (under 30 minutes) and easy to make, and very tasty and satisfying.
The book itself (the Kindle edition) is laid out very nicely with the ingredients and cooking instructions on one page.
I also like that Ms Lemlin includes nutritional information for each recipe; calories per serving, carbohydrates, fats, etc.
Though I have a paperback version of "Simply Satisfying" by Ms Lemlin, I prefer using the Kindle edition because I can take the Kindle to the market with me and use the recipe(s) as a shopping list. (The paperback version doesn't travel well). And when I get home I simply stand the Kindle up and start cooking.

I either have all or most of Jeanne's books. Because of the simple menus she provides in this book, it is easy to blend flavors for tasty and attractive meals. I have worked my way through all the "Simple Menus" and am now on the "Informal Menus," but with June starting will start the "Summer Menus" shortly.

Jeanne's books are always reliable and her recipes often include personable hints for a successful outcome.
Some of the recipes do require butter, which I will start substituting, for health reasons, once I try the original recipe. Some desserts in the menus have too much sugar for my husband, and probably for me too, so, for some desserts, I use the same flavors and substitute those from No Salt, No Sugar, No Fat; Get the Sugar Out; Sweet and Natural; or if the dessert includes fruit, I use fresh fruit if it is available.

I have tried the tempeh recipes and cannot seem to cut it small enough to get my husband to say he likes it and once he knew it was a soy product, he proclaimed that soy is not good for him. So, although I like the dishes, I may have to stop using the tempeh recipes or I may substitute MEAT (Can that be healthier than tempeh?- I don't think so, but happiness is healthy!)

For me, following recipes is generally easy, but I find blending dishes a challenge so again, I really appreciate the menus in this book which build my confidence and give me certainty that the whole meal goes together well.

Thanks
