This review is from: Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook (Second Edition) (Hardcover)
I am very pleased with this cookbook. I've been a vegetarian for about 10 years but only recently starting cooking more and this cookbook is great. The front section talks about the choice to be vegetarian and goes over how to have a balanced diet without eating meat.
The recipes themselves are divided up logically into chapters such as "vegetable main dishes", "grains and legumes", and "soy-based meals" which I appreciate. It makes it easy to find what you are looking for. There are also sections on foods aimed at kids and recipes that you can make in under 30 minutes.
At the back there is a section with sample menus which is really helpful for people who have a hard time breaking away from the idea that a meal must have a meat/protein center and side dishes.
Everything I've made so far has come out well and even my meat-eating husband has enjoyed them. Nothing is too complicated for a new cook. Highly recommended.
