The elegant simplicity and exquisite flavor of Deborah Madison's food make her one of America's leading cooks. In Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, she offers more than great food: her book includes comprehensive information about ingredients and techniques, plus more than 800 recipes. The recipes range from dishes as familiar as Guacamole to those as distinctive as Green Lentils with Roasted Beets and Preserved Lemons, and Cashew Curry. The 124-page chapter titled "Vegetables: The Heart of the Matter" is a virtual book of culinary revelations; you could use it as a manual on buying and preparing vegetables. Madison provides equally inspired recipes and guidance for everything from grains and soy to dairy foods and desserts.

Madison, whose The Greens Cookbook sold more than 300,000 copies, offers recipes that will please even nonvegetarians.

Some of the recipes assume that the reader has a kitchen full of tarte pans and things like that for making quiche, but in every section I found recipes that I could use with very little specialized equipment.
I especially liked that she included vegetarian meals for vegans. So many cookbooks drown the vegetables in cheese and cream. This book has some recipes like that, but not all of them.
I'm glad the book is hardcover, because I tend to be rough on cookbooks and this will hold up. One suggestion that I do in all my cookbooks is to comment on a recipe after I make it. After all, it's not easy to remember not only if we made something, but if we liked it.
There are already a lot of **** and "delicious" written beside the recipes.
I already cook with a nice variety of vegetables, but this year decided to try any and all vegetables. Madison is my first stop for suggestions on different and interesting ways to cook the veggies. Have been very satisfied with results.
One caveat--she uses more salt than I like, so be careful.

This cookbook is one of the best we have ever used. It just has everything from basics (how to boil the perfect egg and such) to full recipes. We don't eat exclusively vegetarian, and Debbie is awesome because she has tons and tons of recipes for different stocks and sauces separate from full recipes. She also has just general information about choosing produce and ingredients at the market and general preparation guidelines for various things. The tips are neat and helpful even for people who are pretty eclectic shoppers. The preparation guidelines are awesome because they really help if you are coming up with your own recipes or want to modify hers or other recipes.
The cookbook covers a variety of different styles of cooking from French to Asian and South American to American staples. She has everything from quick lunches and breakfasts to extravagant preparations. The index is pretty extensive, having listings both by dish name and also by ingredient (which is even more helpful). The recipes are precise and easy to follow and really exciting just to explore.
As for cookbooks in general, get the hardback version. The hardbacks are worth it in the long run.
