3.0 out of 5 stars Something of a disappointment October 6, 2008
Subscription Term Name:1 year
First, the disclaimer. I am not a vegetarian. I have, however, planned many vegetarian menus and cooked thousands of vegetarian meals, both professionally and at home.

This magazine has a rather quaint approach to cover art and illustrations that reminds me of magazines that my mom read in the sixties. Apart from its appearance, the recipes are wildly inconsistent. Some are very good, fast, and easy to prepare. Others are bland and lifeless, reinforcing the misconception that vegetarian food is uninteresting and "healthy tasting." Some of the recipes contain obvious errors and omissions or call for such odd proportions that one wonders if they were tested prior to publication.

Vegetarian Times seems to try reasonably hard to avoid the sanctimony and self-righteousness that afflicts so many publications in this genre. Nonetheless, there is enough polemicizing to annoy when it intrudes on the culinary purposes of the magazine.

My final observation is that this magazine has one of the worst advertisement-to-content ratios that I've ever seen. In a couple of recent issues, the ratio of ads to recipes is nearly one to one. I don't mind paying a reasonable price for a useful publication but I do object to paying for the privilege of reading marketing hype.

Bottom line? There are better vegetarian cookbooks readily available through Amazon or other dealers. Robin Robertson and Madhur Jaffrey both offer superior alternatives.

After admiring Vegetarian Times on magazine racks for countless months, I finally took the plunge and ordered a one-year subscription. VT features numerous helpful product reviews, vegetarian / vegan recipes, health info, interviews, and a spotlight on green restaurants and businesses around the country. The Carrot & Stick section gives kudos to earth-friendly businesses and institutions and shines a light on animal rights violators. For me, this helps me decide which companies will receive my business based on their track record on environmentalism, recycling, and animal rights.

The biggest downside is the amount (and size) of advertising; the already-thin monthly issues feel like they're 50% full-page ads targeted at vegetarians / vegans. This definitely detracted from an otherwise artistic, well-laid-out magazine. Personally, I feel that full-page ads are redundant in the Internet age; I'd much rather have a list of advertisers' products / websites at the back of the magazine, although I realize that advertising revenues are an essential evil inherent to the business.

Many of VT's monthly recipes are ethnic in nature; I was pleasantly surprised to see that the September issue featured vegetarian makeovers of several High Holy Days standards such as Mock Chopped Liver, Noodle Kugel with Caramelized Apples and Raisins, Sephardic Stufffed Cabbage, and Chocolate Apricot Rugalach. It's really rare to find Jewish vegetarian recipes in mainstream magazines, so I greatly appreciated the inclusion (for more Jewish vegetarian ideas, check out

4.0 out of 5 stars I want to like this magazine... October 22, 2006
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I really do want to like this magazine. For one, the cover is almost so pretty and comforting, plus they cover many aspects that may be of concern to vegetarian lifestyle, such as environment, health, politics, etc.

However, the recipes are inconsistent. Some, like the readers' best, can be excellent. Many of their other recipes fall short though, some by glaring oversight (for example, forgetting salt). Also, their 'ethnic' recipes usually aren't that great. Their preoccupation with lowfat recipe also unfortunately lead to sacrific of taste. And seriously does anyone think PAM is healthier than olive oil??

VT is really best when it focuses on American classics done vegetarian. Things like chilis, pot pies, and casseroles.

I still give this 4 stars because I think except for the recipes, the magazine isn't all that bad, plus there aren't many other competitors for this market. Their CS has been very friendly when I called. If you aren't as picky as I am about getting the exact recipes right, then this is a nice magazine. As for me, once my subscription stops, I'm switching to buying time-tested recipes books instead.

1.0 out of 5 stars went pearshaped after switching publishers December 9, 2009
By MEK
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I used to have a subscription to Veg Times for years. The recipes were 99% reliable, the food photography was excellent, and they had interesting articles that appealed to more than just women on diets.
I did let the subscription lapse however. Eventually the recipes and issues became repetitive (I suppose after a few years they will) but at least they were good. It had been a long while since I had read the magazine and decided to pick up an issue.
First thing I noticed was the food photography. It was horrible. Bad layouts, bad displays, bad color. It looked like a Betty Crocker cookbook from the 1960s. Dreadful.
Something was wrong. Then I noticed the publisher had changed. I think Rodale Press published it back when I had a subscription to it.
I didn't recognize the name of the new publisher.
I put the magazine back. Just didn't instill a desire to make the recipes because the food just did not look appetizing.
Must have let a year pass before I looked at it again at my local co-op. Photography looked better and the recipes read fairly decently. I decided to buy it and try a few.
Don't judge a magazine by its cover. The two recipes I tried were horrible. One was from some article that turned out to be pushing particular advertiser's products. The recipe was followed step-by-step and I'm a pretty good cook having had to learn vegetarian cooking nearly 25 years ago. I learned how to make good veggie food during the "brown" years and I knew what bland vegetarian cooking was. The result of this particular recipe was brown, gloopy, and probably the very worst dish I had ever made from a published recipe.
A tasteless and greasy mess. I should have dropped the mag in the recycle bin right then. However, I gave another recipe from it a chance.
