"Sunset Vegetarian Cooking" shines. Look beyond the Tofurky and the tempeh. This cookbook shows that the true wizards of Menlo Park are the cooks in Sunset magazine's test kitchens.

When I lived in Santa Fe,this cookbook came in handy,since I had a vegetarian Deadhead roommate. I've used it so much it's beginning to fall apart (along with my Soup Mix cookbook) The curried peanut soup, with its unusual combination of carrots, curry, peanut butter, Worcestershire sauce, and catsup is cooking magic. The cheddar sherry soup is delicate and delicious. The meringue-topped vegetable custard is like a quiche, but lighter. And no, the meringue isn't dessert-worthy. The layered chile is like Mexican mole with its secret ingredient of unsweetened cocoa powder. The fruited rice pilaf is a delicious melding of the savory and the sweet. The savory kugel is a filling, dinner version of the popular Jewish dessert (to quote Christopher Guest in 'For Your Consideration' "An extreme close-up of the kugel!")

"Sunset Vegetarian Cooking" offers something for everyone, from the sweet to the savory. It offers delightful, creative alternatives that even beefeaters will enjoy.

Neither I nor my family are vegetarions, but the first time I looked through this cookbook I knew I had to have it. It is full of appetizing dishes that are easy to prepare and is extremely well organized. Many of the dishes are fast to make and are made with ingredients that you already have on hand. I've found the appetizer and salad sections to be extremely useful, as I frequently have to bring dishes to family gatherings. These dishes are a change of pace, but none of them are so unusual that people don't want to try them. I reccomend this book to anyone who is looking for a change of pace without having to go off the deep-end!

I have been a vegetarian for well over 28 years and as many vegetarian and vegan cookbooks as I have I always fall back on this old tried and true cookbook. It's a kid pleaser as well as a crowd pleaser. I highly recommend it.

I love this cookbook. I need a new one because my first one that my mother bought me as a gift has fallen apart! I love most every recipe in this book. Lemony Lentil soup, Brazilian Black bean soup are among my favorites.

I love Sunset cookbooks, but this is an old one. Copyrite 1981.

My husband and I decided we wanted to gradually start eating more vegetarian meals to get healthier. I bought this cookbook, but there are so many more interesting ones available now that being vegetarian isn't as weird as it used to be.

The Vegetarian Bible, of course, is Deborah Madison's "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone." I have made many delicious company and family meals with her recipes. This is a tome, with useful information about everything vegetarian.

If you're looking for a great vegetarian cookbook, I'd skip Sunset's Vegetarian Cooking. I do, however, love Sunset's "Complete Vegetarian Cookbook." Copyrite 1993. Beautiful photos and large-type recipes. Lots of wonderful recipes. The mega-muffins are absolutely fabulous. I've made them all. We like the Carrot-Nut Mighty Muffins the best.
