Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

With simplicity in mind, the editors of the Vegetarian Times (Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook, etc.) make the most of the heralded low-fat, "plant-based cuisine" of the Mediterranean, including dishes from Turkey (Turkish Fennel Salad), Morocco (Moroccan Eggplant Salad), Israel and Lebanon. Nonvegetarians will forget about meat cravings when they try Mushroom Pot Pie with Polenta Crust and the delicately spiced Pumpkin Flan with Olive Vinaigrette. Some dishes do not deliver: Linguine with Caramelized Onions and Pine Nuts calls for a jarring addition of rosemary. Aside from a few overwrought recipes, the book's selections shine, especially in Salads (Chickpea Salad with Walnuts and Tomatoes) and Savory Tarts, Pastries and Egg Dishes (Torta Rustica filled with wild mushrooms, roasted peppers and cheeses). Moroccan Carrot Soup, with apples, yams and fennel, is a fresh take on a recent commonplace. The desserts are easy to prepare, such as Hazelnut Biscotti Yogurt Cheesecake with Black Pepper and Honey. The book's editors have disproved the old adage that too many cooks spoil the pot. (Jan.)

From Library Journal

With the Mediterranean diet's emphasis on vegetables, grains, and beans, Vegetarian Times and Mediterranean food seems a natural match. And there are indeed some good recipes here, from countries all around the region. However, some of them seem like pale imitations of the real thing (e.g., an Italian Torta made with pesto, sun-dried tomatoes, and cream cheese and butter, rather than the rich cheese the original surely uses, or a meatless Cassoulet made with seitan) or only distant relations (Italian Tofu and Spinach Patties). With all the delicious vegetarian dishes the Mediterranean has to offer, this collection is somewhat disappointing. For libraries where Vegetarian Times and its previous cookbooks are popular.

I adore this cookbook! It is witty, fun to read, full of healthful insight and provides an excellent history not only of the regions of the Mediterranean and their culture, but how the residents of this area developed a healthy diet out of necessity. The selections are outstanding and I am enjoying this cookbook immensely. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in healthy eating, diabetics and vegetarians. I have a new found desire to live in Greece or Italy, shop at the market daily for my day's meals and work in the olive groves!

By A Customer on March 30, 2003
Friends introduced us to this cookbook, knowing that we eat vegetarian and follow the Mediterranean diet. What a joy!
My only problem to date (I've made 4 recipes to date - our friends an additional 3 or 4) has been a major typo in one of the recipes that left me unsure how to layer a casserole. I went with my best guess, and it was very good!
Highly recommended. Great flavors, great variety. I get tired of people saying that to not eat high-fat (especially "bad" fat) foods like burgers, fries, bacon, etc., is bland and boring and somehow to be disdained. WRONG! We eat so much better than that! and will eat even better now that we have this book.

This book is truly wonderful. I love to make dishes from this cookbook all of the time. This is a "must have" for vegans and vegetarians!
