It's all about vegetables in this new cookbook written by a true vegetable-lover and the author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. If you are one of those vegetarians who truly doesn't like veggies - in fact, any vegetarian - you need this book. The truth is you can make any veggie taste good, and it doesn't require loads of butter or cheese, I promise. There is something for everyone here, from salads to sautes and sauces to soups.

The book is divided into six sections: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter, Anytime at All, and Pressure's On - In a Good Way (all about pressure cooking). Perhaps my favorite part of this book is The Veggie Queen's Morsels and Tidbits sprinkled throughout. After reading this cookbook (which I did from cover to cover), I not only had some terrific ideas for vegetables, including ones I rarely eat or have never tried, I also felt that I knew the author. These short essays based on childhood memories, conversations with friends and fun experiences like growing mushrooms in the bathtub are witty, informative, and above all, fun to read.

Here are some of the recipes that will be gracing my holiday table this year: Spinach Salad with Warm Sesame Dressing; Lentil, Mushroom and Walnut Pate, and Shepherd's Pie (a new family favorite around here).

Did you know that only a quarter of Americans manage to eat the five recommended daily minimum servings of fruits and veggies each day. If you can't imagine eating this many, much less the 5-9 servings that are now suggested, this is the book for you. Give your vegetables the royal treatment, and you'll learn to worship them like the kings and queens of nutrition that they are! -- Melanie Wilson

Great cookbook. Jill Nussinow is dedicated to both the health of incorporating veggies into your diet, and the passion for making truely delicious food. I love food and love to cook, and I found some new ideas here - The Veggie Queen had some new ways of working with healthy but sometimes puzzling ingredients like nutritional yeast, and after reading this book, I'm going to pull out my pressure cooker (a gift I've never used), and armed with her book, I'm looking forward to trying some 20-minute (or less) healthy soups and stews.

Everything about this book rates 5 stars. The cover and the graphics are lovely but the academy award goes to the recipes. I cannot imagine anyone reading this book and not wanting to eat more than 5 (veggies) a day. Jill, a registered dietician; an expert, has managed to make a great deal of in-depth information clear and interesting. I will be making many of the recipes in this book, for Thanksgiving and all through the year and plan to give this book as a gift to many of my veg challenged friends. Yum, thanks Jill.

I received the book in the mail about noon, and I started looking through it and decided to make 'Three Sisters Stew' for dinner. It was wonderful! I look forward to making many more delicious recipes from this book.

I recently tried another "seasonal produce" cookbook called Local Bounty. Both cookbooks have chapters of recipes broken down by season and both are vegan, but really the similarities end there. Perhaps it is the more generous use of seasonings, it could be the intriguing recipe titles, or it could be as simple as the fonts! ... but this cookbook had a more of a gourmet feel about it. It is also a better choice if you are seeking a full cookbook of vegan recipes that includes everything from desserts to sides to full main dishes.

The book's introduction section is brief, jumping right into Spring and the first chapter of recipes. Though you don't read a lot upfront, the author does include sizable stories, anecdotes, cooking tips, and suggestions in relevant spots throughout the entire cookbook. At the end of the cookbook there is a brief Glossary of Food Items and a neat and tidy index, both of which I found quite useful. Yet, I was surprised that there wasn't a quick guide as to what produce is in-season during what time of year. I think it would help in varying recipes (and in coming up with some of my own ideas) when I crave something slightly different. If I could make any suggestions for the author's second edition, this would be it. For now, I will reference another book or online for this information.

While I can hardly wait for Spring to trial the Asparagus with Black Bean Sauce (made from scratch rather than a jar!), there are certainly plenty of enticing Fall and Winter recipes to keep me busy in the mean time ... Curried White and Sweet Potato Pancakes, Herb Roasted Root Vegetables, Stuffed Swiss Chard, Maple Vinegar Sauteed Parsnips, Rice Paper Rolls with Spicy Citrus Sauce .... Okay, I will stop now as this is making me hungry!
