“The authors of the new book Almost Meatless make a satisfying case for eating less meat and more vegetables and grains...The resulting dishes are healthier, less expensive and beautifully balanced.”
—Chicago Sun Times
“The recipes look good enough for carnivores to enjoy as well”
“This way of eating makes sense not just for saving money, but, as the authors say in the subtitle, for the planet.”
“Show[s] that a less meatcentric diet than the typical American one can still be satisfying and delicious”
“Filled with recipes that use only a small amount of meat in each dish, a flavorful accent rather than the star of the show”

The book is organized by ingredient - fleshly protein ingredient. Boxed cooking tips, storage and shopping advice and occasional variations accompany well-organized recipes.
Most recipes are naturals for meat restraint - Corn and Cod Cakes, Chicken and Biscuit Pot Pie (whole wheat crust), Chili, while a few traditionally meat centered dishes - Philly Cheese Steak, Tofu-Turkey Sloppy Joes - require some veggie adjustment.
The authors include whole grains without belaboring the point and the whole family will greet the meals here with enthusiasm.
The recipes are easy to follow, with lots of good advice and tips for working with ingredients. I already have shelves and shelves of cookbooks and donate armloads to the public library once or twice a year - so what I'm looking for now is recipes that are a little different without being too spicy-hot or too far out for my husband (who's a fairly adventurous eater) to enjoy. This book's a keeper.
