Editorial Reviews

Review

“[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.”
―Library Journal

“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.”
Newsweek

“Lemlin’s food is quick and comforting, the kind you’re always in the mood to eat.”
Washington Post

“This is a compendium of hearty vegetarian fare with a relaxed approach to cooking and a particularly noteworthy extended section on desserts.”
―CSMonitor.com

“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

Format: Paperback
If you have been a vegetarian for some time and you have a lot of vegetarian cook books, you will want to look elsewhere for your next cook book. This will not give you "new and exciting", but it will deliver a large range of all-purpose vegetarian dishes that will please you. If you are looking for just one general vegetarian cook book, this may be just what you are looking for.

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.

I either have all or most of Jeanne's books. Because of the simple menus she provides in this book, it is easy to blend flavors for tasty and attractive meals. I have worked my way through all the "Simple Menus" and am now on the "Informal Menus," but with June starting will start the "Summer Menus" shortly.

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.

Thanks

I've been a fan & collector of Jeanne Lemlin's cookbooks for many years. I have purchased them all and was excited to see this new one. My excitement quickly turned to disappointment after receiving the book and trying to browse through it. I continue to hold Ms. Lemlin and her wonderful vegetarian recipes in high regard but her publisher should be ashamed (The Experiment LLC). They committed one of the worst crimes in book publishing as far as I'm concerned: using teeny tiny font size and pale almost impossible to read font color. Come on folks! If you want your authors to succeed, make the text easy on the eyes - sharp, distinct and clear. I'll admit that my eyes are not the youngest around but they're healthy; I won't waste any time trying to decipher these recipes and for the first time ever, since ordering books from Amazon for decades, I'm going to return the book.

I have two of Jeanne Lemlin's other cookbooks which are lovingly dogeared and stained. For me, her recipes are the best for simplicity, nutrition and above all, taste. This new book has even more great recipes and the pages are soil resistant. The weight is a bit of a problem and the grey typeface is a strain for older eyes, but the recipes continue to please. I gave one to my daughter who reports my 14-year-old vegetarian granddaughter loves using it.

I cannot rave more about a vegetarian cookbook. I bought the first edition in 1987 and I have worn it out!! I was thrilled to see that Amazon carried the re-issue in paperback and bought three copies: one for myself and two to give as gifts. I am not a vegetarian, but I do enjoy an occasional vegetarian meal, especially in the summer when there is so much fresh produce available, but Jeanne's book makes winter vegetarian eating special too!! And the menus are superb!! It is so much fun to make an entire vegetarian meal as a surprise for my veggie friends. Thank you for bringing this wonderful book back!
