A friend gave me this book (the spiral edition) in 1973, and it truly changed my life -- I became a vegetarian immediately. This is where I learned how to cook and eat all kinds of food that I'd never seen before, especially beans. I am not crazy about the "breakfast" recipes, but the breads in this cookbook are great. I have over a hundred cookbooks, and I still make the lasagne with adzuki beans (complicated) and the potato soup (easy). Almost every page in my book is either stained or annotated or both.
The only disadvantage to this cookbook is that many recipes call for dairy products and eggs -- things that I still enjoy after 29 years, but that I am not allowed to eat as often these days!
This is a classic, educational cookbook for vegetarians.

This book, with it's emphasis on tasty recipes and easy to understand information on balancing proteins, is a 'must read/must own' book for anyone considering a vegetarian diet, or even for those who just want to add some variety to a traditional diet. This book is the foundation for a healthier eating, and I recommend it to all.

This is a great cookbook! The reason I only gave it 4 stars is becaus the cookbook is bound in a regular book format so it is very difficult to place on the counter top or in a recipe hook holder when you cook. The original version was spiral bound which was great! All cookbooks should come spiral bound!!! My two primary cookbooks in the kitchen are this one and More With Less (which incidently is actually spiral bound)!

Though one reviewer felt the format of this book was a poor choice, I found it to be perfect. I can leave a spare copy with one of my grocery bags so that I can pick out a new recipe or two while at the grocery store. I find that this lets me find the freshest foods available.

What I like most about this book is that with a little preperation and fore thought, you can do much of your cooking for meals in advance, and just combine ingredients and heat when meal time comes. This can be done because many of the recipes call for "cooked rice" or "cooked peas". I find that this also allows you to use leftovers up quickly, in new recipes.

One note, though, is that this book is not Vegan by any means. Many of the recipes call for dairy products and eggs.

Overall, it is a lovely lovely book and a must for those trying to live lightly on the earth.

I bought this cookbook to replace a copy that I had used and loved so much that it was falling apart. The recipes in this book are great and the information on healthful eating is good even 20+ years after its publication. I have lots of newer cookbooks, but this is one of my favorites. Try the banana bread recipe on page 253.

This is another book that I bought twice. The first time was in the 1970s, and the second time this year when my original copy fell apart from so much use. If you're growing Swiss chard or spinach this year--or getting it from the farmer's market--turn directly to page 144 and make Cheesy Chard. Actually, read the recipe through to the bottom and make Bean Cheesy Chard. Love this stuff!

I did not get the sprial bound book I ordered. I returned the paper copy but I did review it and found that the recipes contained a lot of yogurt which I can't eat. I am a vegetarian and used this when I first stopped eating meat 40 years ago, so I would still suggest it's recipes for others who want a veggie diet.

I was a vegetarian in the seventies and this book was such a life saver. Very good recipes and I used it all the time. It was misplaced and I had a hard time finding it. Now that I am once again eating healthy I am so pleased that I found it. The postage was actually twice the price of the book but it was something I needed to get me on the right track. I just wish they would do a re-printing. It has some very useful info in it.
