Editorial Reviews

Review

Vegetarian Entrées That Won’t Leave You Hungry will certainly not leave you hungry, but first it will make you very hungry indeed. Whether or not you are vegetarian, every dish in this book will lure you into the kitchen.”
Martha Rose Shulman, author of The Very Best Recipes for Health

"With the same inviting mix of boyish candor and enthusiasm that he brought to Veggie Burgers Every Which Way, Volger expands his vision beyond that pervasive sym­bol of vegetarian diets. Trained on the job and in classes at home and abroad, Vol­ger blends a variety of techniques and cuisines in surprising ways . . . The beauty of Volger’s approach lies in its simplicity, creativity, and portability."
Publishers Weekly

“Finally, Lukas Volger has shattered the protein/veg/sauce format that has shackled vegetarian food for decades.”
Amanda Cohen, chef/owner, Dirt Candy  

“[W]ill expand your horizons far past pastas and salads.”
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette 

"If the adjective 'vegetarian' immediately calls to mind side dishes and incomplete meals, this lively cookbook aims to convince readers otherwise."
Kirkus Reviews

I have a lot of vegetarian cookbooks and I don't use any of them.. except THIS one! My issue with vegetarian cook books is that usually the entrees seem intangible and hard to make. I'm also cow milk free and gluten free so many recipes are hard to convert. I usually open up a new cookbook and am completely disappointed to find very few recipes that I can actually make. But these recipes SOUND delicious and ARE. They are also easy and fun to make. It's easy to convert dishes to gluten free and many of them already are. Lukas starts at the beginning and explains everything wonderfully. The book isn't boring at all like a lot of veggie books. My husband is a veggie now by default and loves all the food i've made through here.. doesn't miss meat at all. Thanks Lukas!!!

I'm rewriting this review, because the initial version was a bit too negative. I was complaining about the richness of many of the recipes, with lots of cheese and other dairy, and an overabundance of egg recipes. But as I re-read the book, it's winning me over. I still wish there were a bit fewer unhealthy, comfort food recipes, but I realize now how many healthy ones there are too. I'm anxious to try the tofu Vietnamese sandwich, veggie gratins, simple curries, and noodle and dumpling bowls. So while there are some dishes that are a bit heavy for everyday cooking, there are also plenty of nourishing, healthy dishes that I will make regularly. And the author's clear, thorough instructions make cooking his recipes seem foolproof. I'm impressed by the author, and look forward to trying many of these recipes.

I'll cut to the chase. I'm a longtime vegetarian, no slouch in the kitchen, handy with a knife. I've prepared four recipes from this book, and I've had hit and miss experiences. There were similarities between recipes, however => prep time was about 3x longer than stated in the recipe, and the end result was somewhat lackluster for the amount of time put into it.

Example #1:
Whole Wheat Spaghetti with Creamed Kale and Chickpeas

Prep Time as stated: 45 minutes
In reality: 90 minutes

The result was a bilious and unpleasantly bitter sauce (that failed to thicken in the suggested 6-8 minutes suggested) that barely covered the spaghetti.

Example #2:
Chipotle Black Bean Tostadas with Avocado and Mango

Prep Time as stated: 30 minutes
In reality: Almost 2 hours

This recipe sounds great, right? And the end result was pretty good. But 2 hours of cooking later, I was so hungry, even eating my own shoe would have been delicious. Why does this cookbook author need to be dishonest about how long his recipes take to prepare? Well...in case you're still guessing, I'll tell you. Sales!

So here's my review Mr. Volger- I'm your average Amercian foodie and moderately talented cook (which must be your target audience). I remain, humbly frustrated, by chefs with publishing agents who want to make a quick buck.

I found Lukas's first book (veggie burgers) by accident, and it quickly became one of my favorites. In fact I gave copies to 5 other friends and relatives. They loved it, too. So I was very excited to learn about the new cookbook. I have tried several recipes so far, and they were all stunningly delicious. I also love the way I can figure out ways to vary the recipes here to make other similar dishes. For instance, Lukas provides two recipes for galettes. But knowing how to make these galettes, I can figure out lots of other stuffings that I think would be delicious. Same with the asian dumplings. The spinach, mushroom and tofu dumplings were yummy. And I can vary the stuffing to make lots of fun dumpling versions.

I am not a vegetarian, but I'm trying to eat less meat and Lukas's cookbooks really help!

My daughter and I have dabbled with vegetarian food for years, and she recently introduced me to Meatless Monday. Since I needed more recipes, other than the ones in my head, for a standing weekly "vegetarian date," I went the library to look for a (different title) vegetarian cookbook and happened across this one. Comparing the recipes between the two books, this one seemed more accessible for a busy family, with fewer ingredients and more simple directions.

I chose three recipes when I got the book home, supposing at least one of them would turn out ok. Surprisingly, they were all very good, very flavorful, and perfect for our needs. A couple of the recipes did take longer to make than stated but that isn't an issue for me because I enjoy spending time in the kitchen (and I can always put the recipes together ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze the food for use later). When the outcome is food that's this good, 15 extra minutes (give or take) is certainly not a complaint.

This might be too simple for experienced vegetarian cooks (the food is great so don't pass it by for a more complicated book, if that's the only issue) but for novice cooks or for interested omnivores / beginner vegetarians, this one is a real gem. I liked it so much that I returned it to the library, ordered my own copy, and will soon order his burger book.
