“[N]ovice cooks can whip up healthful, flavorful meals in record time. Lemlin’s latest, which emphasizes simple preparations and nutritious (e.g., low-fat, whole grain) ingredients, is as useful now as it was 25 years ago.”
“Jeanne Lemlin has always been one of my favorite vegetarian authors. There is so much variety and flavor in Jeanne’s simple seasonal preparations that I could cook a different vegetarian meal every night of the week.“
―Sara Moulton, host of the PBS show Sara’s Weeknight Meals and author of Sara Moulton’s Everyday Family Dinners
“In a crowded field of vegetarian cookbooks, Lemlin’s stands out for straightforward good food.”
“Lemlin’s food is quick and comforting, the kind you’re always in the mood to eat.”
“This is a compendium of hearty vegetarian fare with a relaxed approach to cooking and a particularly noteworthy extended section on desserts.”
“The easy recipes are alive with flavor and zest. Whether one is a vegetarian is incidental. This book inspires a new and fresh direction for home cooking.”
―Marion Cunningham, author of The Fanny Farmer Cookbook
“It takes enormous culinary flair and expertise, good sense, and also courage to marry the tastes of different cultures in a way that really works. Jeanne Lemlin has achieved this brilliantly.”
―Claudia Roden, author of The Food of Spain
“All the elements are intelligently related to one another to give an overall sense of focus and balance to the meal . . . and convey a sense of cooking which is flexible and relaxed.”
―Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone and Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America’s Farmers’ Markets
“The recipes are light, flavorful, varied, and drawn from many international cuisines. I was especially happy to see desserts that no dessert lover could resist. Jeanne Lemlin really knows what tastes good.”
―Richard Sax, author of From the Farmer’s Market

I can't possibly give it a five-star rating, because any and all of Deborah Madison's books are much better. I'd give this one a 3.5 if I could. You should check out Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, Vegetable Soups from Deborah Madison's Kitchen, and Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison's Kitchen before deciding on this one.
I checked this book out of my library several weeks ago and found enough new ideas and some great recipes that I'll get my own copy when I can find a good used copy.
In the mean time, I've copied a few "keepers": Pate Brisee with Whole Wheat Flour (great for vegetable tarts), a pancake recipe made with maple syrup and whole wheat, a nice recipe for Irish Soda Bread with whole wheat, a Creamy Dill Dressing (for cukes and such), a Cold Cucumber and Watercress Soup, Buttermilk Herb and Onion Tart, an ingenious Rolled Stuffed Lasagna with Kale in a Tomato Cream Sauce, several nice grain pilafs, Brussels Sprouts with Lemon-Soy Glaze, Zucchini, Red Pepper and Snow Pea Saute, Honey-Glazed Sugar Snap Peas with Carrots, Chilled Green Beans with Sesame Sauce and a Rutabaga Gratin. There is also an interesting Maple Pecan Pie. And, for some reason, I think her idea to put Puttanesca Sauce on polenta (or grits) is terrific.Read more ›
Jeanne's books are always reliable and her recipes often include personable hints for a successful outcome.
Some of the recipes do require butter, which I will start substituting, for health reasons, once I try the original recipe. Some desserts in the menus have too much sugar for my husband, and probably for me too, so, for some desserts, I use the same flavors and substitute those from No Salt, No Sugar, No Fat; Get the Sugar Out; Sweet and Natural; or if the dessert includes fruit, I use fresh fruit if it is available.
I have tried the tempeh recipes and cannot seem to cut it small enough to get my husband to say he likes it and once he knew it was a soy product, he proclaimed that soy is not good for him. So, although I like the dishes, I may have to stop using the tempeh recipes or I may substitute MEAT (Can that be healthier than tempeh?- I don't think so, but happiness is healthy!)
For me, following recipes is generally easy, but I find blending dishes a challenge so again, I really appreciate the menus in this book which build my confidence and give me certainty that the whole meal goes together well.
