Atlas (Vegetarian Soups for All Seasons) defies the stereotype of convenience vegan food as being heavy on rubbery, unappetizing substitutes for normal ingredients. Though many of the dishes require only around half an hour to make, they skew more toward fresh vegetables and herbs rather than to faux meat. Spicy, flavorful recipes such as Curried Chickpeas with Chutney Bulgur and Salsa Orzo and Black Bean Salad send a clear message that one can cook vegan meals that satisfy even nonvegans. Atlas does use the basic protein alternatives (seitan, tofu and tempeh) as well as vegan cheeses and creamers at times, but these are incorporated so skillfully that people who usually turn up their noses at them will have no grounds to object. The book has strong international flair, with tofu replacing eggs in a Middleeastern Shakshouka and standing in for paneer in the Indian Tofu Aloo Gobi, as well as traditional meatless favorites like Pasta Puttanesca and Pad Thai. A few snacks and desserts are included, but most of the recipes are for dishes that, with a simple side, comprise a meal, facilitating speed, and Atlas sprinkles helpful tips on menu planning and variations throughout. The lack of photos to emphasize the food's appetizing potential is disappointing, but vegan, vegetarian and health-conscious omnivores just might be convinced after trying it out. (Feb.)

I was hoping that this book would provide complete meals like an earlier book, Vegetarian Express. That book provided 3-dish meals, with shopping lists and the steps for cooking so everything ended up on the table at the same time. But this book just presents one recipe at a time, and it's organized like a typical cookbook (side dish salads in one chapter, sauces in another).
This organization does make it easier to add dishes to the repertoire without having to cook entirely new meals--a plus for those with picky eaters in the family. I find that my family is more likely to welcome a single new dish at a time.
The recipes are a good way to try more "exotic" flavors because they use common ingredients and they are not heavily spiced (but directions are included for adding heat if you like things spicier). And many of the recipes are not "exotic" looking so much as yummy looking! e.g., red lentil soup with fresh dill and crisp pita croutons, pasta with roasted vegetables and olives, and "our favorite chocolate cake."
The cookbook is very well-indexed, which makes it easy to choose a recipe that matches what I've already got in the fridge, and the directions are easy to follow. I especially like the full-color pictures of some of the dishes--I think I'll start cooking those first!
One reviewer mentioned it doesn't have enough spice..so add some! Good grief! I happen to love really spicy foods, so I usually tweak recipes to suit my tastes and I assumed most people did the same thing to accomodate their own tastes or dietary restrictions. You don't need a cookbook to tell you how to do that!
Try this book! The recipes are easy to follow and taste really good! There are no "weird" products to buy, the recipes use ingredients that are found pretty much everywhere. I live in a small town in the mountains and shopping here is limited, but I have no trouble tracking down the things I need for Nava's recipes.
Another keeper, Nava!
