Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Wells (The Spices of Life and Global Vegetarian Cooking) provides a wide array of appealing and tantalizing vegetarian offerings from all over the globe. From Tanzania's corn-on-the-cob in coconut milk and Greek cheese pies to the Middle East's hummus with several variations and the Sudan's falafel, Wells offers up flavorful and distinctive recipes, most of which are vegan or vegan-adaptable. Main dishes include baked sweet potato casserole from Canada, and creamy mixed vegetable curry from India, among a wealth of others. She also includes appetizing side dishes, sauces, and salads, such as crunchy garlicky potatoes, fiery spinach with chilies, and lentil salad with feta cheese and vegetables. Most recipes are accompanied by luscious full-color photos that serve to whet the appetite as well as demystify dishes for the uninitiated. Ethnic desserts are given their fair due in a wonderful chapter that includes West Africa's banana cake and South Korea's cinnamon buns. Recipes are clear-cut and fairly simple, use mostly easily found ingredients, and do not require a huge amount of time to prepare. Both vegetarians and those simply looking for a way to incorporate more vegetables into their diet will delight in this treasure of a book. (Dec.)

From Booklist

Although many vegetarian cookbooks crowd the market, this effort from English cookery author Wells distinguishes itself by accumulating recipes from scores of different cuisines from nearly every corner of the globe. Peru contributes avocado stuffed with vegetables and eggs. Thailand comes forth with coconut-based soup fragrant with galangal and Kaffir lime. Potatoes and sweet potatoes combine in an unusual gratin from Canada. South Africa’s famed bobotie retains its myriad spices but loses its customary lamb. Great license is taken with Italy’s fettuccine Alfredo, substituting cashews and oregano for its creamy, rich cheese sauce. On the other hand, France’s ratatouille needs no alteration. What could be more typically American than Boston baked beans, here not baked but quickly simmered and served improbably over rice? Desserts include a complex, dairy-free tiramisu. Wells lists a few cocktails, such as mojitos, to enliven the fare. Full-color photographs illustrate virtually every dish. --Mark Knoblauch

I received this book for Christmas last year and have made a majority of the recipes so far, all of which have been fantastic. The recipe for Turkish Lentil Soup is incredibly easy to make and I've made it at least four times already. A lot of the same spices are used in multiple recipes, which makes trying out new recipes much easier. The photos are wonderful and the recipes are clear and uncomplicated. This is one of the best cookbooks I own.

Format: Hardcover
"One World Vegetarian Cookbook" is a gorgeous collection of 120 + easy to prepare vegetarian recipes that are both nourishing and sustainable. Presenting a focus on using, buying or growing "green," organic vegetables that are as free of contaminants as possible, "One World Vegetarian Cookbook" delivers a life-enhancing message in the form of promoting caring, responsible vegetarian and vegan cooking. Needless to say, it is cuisine that is fresh, appetizing, and zesty, with international influences. Recipes are divided into four categories: starters, soups and snacks, main dishes, salads, side dishes and sauces, and desserts, drinks, and cakes. All sections are vividly enriched by color photographs of mouth-watering foods. How about Corn-on-the-cob in coconut milk, from Tanzania, spiced with turmeric, lemon, and coriander (p.24)? Or Mushroom Stroganoff from Europe with fresh garlic, paprika, nutmeg, balsamic vinegar, and yogurt (p. 110)? Perhaps an unusual recipe for Butternut squash curry has appeal (p. 79)? There is even a veggie shepherd's pie version called Veggie fulani pie, with lentils, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, and spices (p. 148). Of course there is no end to creative side dishes and salads using fresh vegetables. Of note is the Lentil salad with feta cheese and vegetables on page 184, of Mediterranean extraction. Finally there are the sweets. From Irish Barm brack, a lightly fruited bread that is not too sweet but delightful, to Ho-ddeock, or Korean cinnamon buns, there is no shortage of delicious vegetarian dessert recipes. measurements for cooking are presented in both standard and metric for most ingredients, and recipes are vegan or vegan-adaptable by substituting soy margarine, milk or yogurt for the dairy equivalents. Complete with informative sidebars, a vision of compassion for all living creatures, and an international offering of vegetarian feasts, "One World Vegetarian Cookbook" is a culinary indulgence whose time is now.

Just purchased the cookbook recently and
only tried one recipe so far, Cabbage Curry. It is quick, easy, nutritious, and
delicious. I am eager to try other recipes.
This is an excellent book for people who like unique recipes....with healthful ingredients.
Kudos to the author.

This is a very good recipe book for vegetarians. There are many interesting and tasty recipes from all over the world. It is enhanced with pictures of all the foods. I made one of the nut roast recipes at Thanksgiving and it was delicious. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
This is a fantastic cookbook. This was an impulse buy from a local small book seller shop and what a find! I was drawn to the book by the beautiful and numerous photography of the dishes. I have since been delighted by the quality of the recipes presented. The recipes are mostly fairly simple and inexpensive to make, and they are incredibly diverse. It is vegetarian, but the dishes are rich, layered, and very satisfying. If you are still under the illusion that vegetarian means gray and pasty, this book will cure you of that notion. The recipes originate from all over the world with a bias towards Africa, but nonetheless rarely call for difficult-to-find ingredients. The range of tastes is truly impressive. I have made virtually every recipe in the "entrees" section and have rarely been disappointed. My only criticisms are that occasionally the recipes are vague in the description of ingredients (for example, "add one can of beans" - size?), or instructions ("add the onions" - chopped? minced?). As a moderately ambitious amateur cook, this wasn't a particular problem, and the generous pictures are a great help. Overall, I recommend this cookbook without reservation. It is one of my favorites, among many, and has a place next to my favorite Moosewood editions.
