Perfect for students, but just as valuable for health-, time- and budget-conscious grown-ups, Raymond's updated cookbook offers 142 quick and easy recipes for all kinds of vegetarian delights, including breakfasts, salads, sandwiches, pastas and stirfries. With the knowledge of a nutritionist and the warmth of a mom, Raymond urges her readers to embrace meatless cooking for its ease, its economy and its benefits for both people and the environment. For those new to vegetarianism, she covers techniques for smart shopping and kitchen tricks; for the truly harried, her 10 "No-Time-to-Cook" recipes prove that a decent and healthy meal can be whipped up sooner than you can say "Pizza to go." The recipes draw on various cuisines-there's Greek-Style Scrambled Tofu, Black Bean and Yam Quesadillas, Pad Thai and Pasta Primavera-and are uniformly simple and delicious. Raymond also offers vegan recipes, drinks and desserts. With readily available ingredients, prep times that never exceed 20 minutes (and that are often in the single digits) and directions that rarely call for any appliance more complicated than a blender, this volume should be required reading for any student vegetarian.
