From Publishers Weekly
Perfect for students, but just as valuable for health-, time- and budget-conscious grown-ups, Raymond's updated cookbook offers 142 quick and easy recipes for all kinds of vegetarian delights, including breakfasts, salads, sandwiches, pastas and stirfries. With the knowledge of a nutritionist and the warmth of a mom, Raymond urges her readers to embrace meatless cooking for its ease, its economy and its benefits for both people and the environment. For those new to vegetarianism, she covers techniques for smart shopping and kitchen tricks; for the truly harried, her 10 "No-Time-to-Cook" recipes prove that a decent and healthy meal can be whipped up sooner than you can say "Pizza to go." The recipes draw on various cuisines-there's Greek-Style Scrambled Tofu, Black Bean and Yam Quesadillas, Pad Thai and Pasta Primavera-and are uniformly simple and delicious. Raymond also offers vegan recipes, drinks and desserts. With readily available ingredients, prep times that never exceed 20 minutes (and that are often in the single digits) and directions that rarely call for any appliance more complicated than a blender, this volume should be required reading for any student vegetarian.

The drawbacks to these recipes is that many require a long list of ingredients and a good deal of preparation and cooking time. But, a cook who is new to vegetarian cooking, whether they are a student, or the grandparent of a student, will be able to prepare some very tasty meals, AFTER they acquire the many herbs, spices and other ingredients and AFTER they invest the time required.
Of course, with experience, people using these recipes can learn how to simplify the recipes and cut corners on preparation time. Cooking large quantities of beans or rice in advance and keeping them in the refrigerator is one way to save time.
The book lacks photos and illustrations. The lack of photos does not make the book less useful, but I love to look at photos of food...a great photo motivates me to put in the time necessary for a nice meal.
My recently divorced son was visiting for a few days and commented on how much he liked some of the dishes I fixed while he was here - so - I bought another Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for him.
The recipes are very easy to prepare. It is easy to find the ingredients in most regular grocery stores and they don't take a lot of time. I can pop open the book and plan 3-4 days of meals and sandwiches and head for the grocery with my list. We are not vegan, but eat fish, eggs, milk, etc. We avoid all red meats, turkey, chicken so this book works great for us. I love the mountain high chocolate cake recipe. It is so easy and sooooo good. I made it once for a birthday party and doubled the recipe so it made two layers & filled it with ice cream and served it as an ice cream cake.
I appreciate the hints and info on nutrition and shopping tips.
The recipes are often fairly basic but you will learn some great techniques you can easily build upon to create your own recipes. It is also very budget friendly. Some of my absolute favorites are in the Soup and Stews section. Especially the Lentil Soup and the Moroccan Stew.
