3.0 out of 5 stars Elaborate for elaboration's sake September 2, 2010
Format:Paperback
Some of these recipes are decent and I appreciate the advice on grilling fruit, but this book is for people who want unnecessarily elaborate recipes that often only nominally call for a grill. Many of the recipes require one to cook most of the meal on a stove or in an oven and then merely finish it on a grill. Potato pancakes, corn chowder, and burritos should not require a grill. Putting grill marks on a quesadilla does not improve the flavor, it only prolongs the cooking time.

I would have preferred something closer to Alice Waters' veggie books: detailed advice on how to choose and grill a variety of vegetables along with a handful of recipes for each one.

Look elsewhere if you want recipes that actually benefit from the use of a grill. Purchase this book if you absolutely must use a grill for all recipes come hell or high water.

5.0 out of 5 stars great complete book July 21, 2008
By LK
Format:Paperback
Compares grill types; great marinades; helpful suggestions on different surfaces to put on your grill and what veggies they suit (i.e grill woks). Great recipes. I am not a vegetarian and will keep this book at the ready. A must have for the everyday griller.
Also, there are interesting facts- did you know that the first charcoal was discovered and sold by Ford Motor Company?!

5.0 out of 5 stars the ultimate resource for vegetarian grilled meals July 21, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
An excellent resource for a wide variety of grilled vegetarian meals. Think:

goat cheese, pasta, and grilled summer vegetables
grilled pizzas
pattypan squash towers
black bean burritos
grilled veggie burgers with onion and blue cheese
refried bean tacos
goat cheese and olive panini
tomato basil panini
egg in a nest with cheese
herbed summer squash chips
little mushroom bites
grilled pita chips
holiday chestnut-mushroom pate...

and tons more!

and pasta salads, side dishes, marinades, sauces...

there is not only a wide variety of tastes from asian to southwestern to italian to good ol homestyle American, but excellent tips on how to grill as well.

This is most assuredly a keeper for great summer meals.

Negatives: no photos, no nutritional information

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and delicious grilling September 6, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the best book I've ever read on grilling vegetables. Everything you need to know from cooking times to seasoning to how to combine grilled items for meals. This is complete, well organized and easy to use. While there are simple prep instructions on every vegetable you could possibly grill, there are also impressive recipes that are suitable for dinner parties. I've already made many of the dishes in it within a few weeks and they have all been delicious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice recipes but no piccies April 24, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has loads of tasty recipes- starters, mains, desserts and everything in between. The only downside is- there aren't any pictures of the dishes, which is sometimes nice for a bit of inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow! March 1, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to disagree with the one reviewer about being "too elaborate"....I have grilled burritos and quesedilla for years and if it is done correctly-especially with a true grill that produces smoke flavor of some type-it does make a difference in flavor. The recipes in this book are a whole new door being opened-and mind you -I have been a veg for several years, and subscribe to both Eating Well and Vegetarian Times-yet this book is a whole new group of ideas. I tend to use my grill often and I tend to hang with others who do also-so coming up with new creative vegetarian recipes for the grill has been a constant quest. (Honestly I have been glad to be a veg in these cases -many people eat the same old slab of animal meat over and over- veggie stuff opens up a huge variety of food to try that no one thinks of)....this book rocks....
