Using mostly kitchen shelf ingredients, Ms. Lemlin's book has provided our family with wonderful breakfast lunch and dinner recipes. Honestly, there is not one bad recipe in the bunch. I first took this book out of the library, paid lots of late fines and eventually, reluctantly, took the book back. My daughter bought it for me, and now I am buying her and her sister a copy of the book. The techniques are simple, the ingredients easily available and the outcome is consistent every time. I highly recommend this for either vegetarians or those who simply enjoy wonderful interesting food.

I am a huge fan of all of Jeanne Lemlin cookbooks, and this is just another addition to my collection. I am not a vegetarian, but don't eat much meat. I like simple recipes, easy to find ingredients, a good balance of nutrition, and most of all, delicious recipes. Oh, and I really like it when just one dish fulfills all these needs and you don't need side dishes (keeping it simple). Jeanne Lemlin cookbooks all meet my criteria. Some of my favorite recipes from this particular book are: Braised White Beans with Tomatoes, Zucchini, and Garlic; Classic Vegetarian Enchiladas (actually, those are in the oven right now), cooked tomato-chipotle salsa, and the Mock Meatloaf (I made this for Christmas, along with the mushroom gravy and some mashed potatoes- I made meatloaf sandwiches with the leftovers and my husband raved. The funny thing is, I HATE meatloaf made with real meat). There are many others I love, and many I haven't tried yet.

I've been collecting vegetarian cookbooks for years. Some I seldom use except for a favorite recipe or two. But Jeanne Lemlin's cookbooks are on my favorites list and I use them often. Her recipes are delicious, easy to prepare and satisfying to vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. I own all of her cookbooks and would rejoice if she were to publish another one.

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mellissa K. Ruryk on January 3, 2007
Format: Paperback
There's a section at the front of the book that explains most of the ingredients - where to buy, how to store and use - great for people who are a little shy about using new ingredients. It's a good book for beginners or people who are experimenting with adding more vegetarian options to their diet. There is a section on planning meals at the back that lets you put together a menu of complementary items and makes it easy to ensure good and balanced nutrition.

Directions are clear and interesting information is given about food and its uses, as well as easy-to-follow instructions for creating some kitchen basics so you don't have to succumb to store-bought preparations.

Only criticism is, I wish it was spiral bound or had one of those lay-flat bindings to keep it open on the countertop.

Highly recommended.

Excellent, delicious recipes with clear directions and layout. I probably use it at least once a week but more if you count the recipes I've memorized. :) My only criticism is the frustrating index in the back of the book which makes it next to impossible to quickly find something you remember.

I love Jeanne Lemlin's cookbooks. Not everyone in my family is a vegetarian, but these recipes please all of us. A lot of my family's favorites are in here. I have yet to make a recipe from here that didn't turn out well; lots of the casseroles, pastas, and appetizers are now staples for us, and we love her method of marinating and roasting tofu -- yum. I recommend this especially to those who are new to cooking vegetarian meals; these recipes are de-lish, easy-to-follow, and mostly made with ingredients that you can find anywhere.
