4.0 out of 5 stars Keeping it Simple 23 Jan. 2012
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
While not quite pocket sized this handy little book,(just 16x14cm), takes the simple approach to make straightforward vegetable dishes.
Suitable for vegetarians but less so vegans this really wins out as a great way to introduce healthier meat free meals into a formally meat orientated diet.
The introduction, while clear & short, gives some helpful tips including a brief description of the more commonly used ingredients & even advice on storage.
The main headings are `breakfast & brunch', `starters & snacks', `main meals', soups & stews', `salads & sides', `breads & baking' & `desserts'.
The format is really simple. The recipe including ingredients, preparation & cooking time & how many it serves sits on the left hand page while on the right is a full colour photograph of what you hope it's going to look like.
While there are some more exotic dishes these are by & large pretty straightforward & for the most part do not require the reader to hunt down rare & expensive ingredients.
There is nothing here that a person with just basic skills cannot attempt but at the same time will look really tempting & taste great.
If you are after something to help you impress your foodie friends or take you to the next level of vegetarian dishes then this isn't for you but if your looking to dip your culinary toes into vegetarian cooking properly for the first time or just introduce some extra ideas to your list then this is spot on and comes at a price that makes it difficult to argue with.

4.0 out of 5 stars These are nice, but there's a lot of cheese! 17 May 2012
By Robbie Swale VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Ok, a few things to say: firstly, the stuff in this book is tasty. Almost without exception, the 10-15 recipes I've eaten from it were really nice. Second, it's not *that* easy. When I made them, as a mediocre cook, they didn't look great (although generally they tasted good), but when my more talented friends made them, they looked and tasted great. Third, I felt like there was a bit too much cheese. As someone who has lived with vegans and vegetarians before, and eaten at some great vegan and vegetarian restaurants, I know that cheese isn't vital for a vegetarian dish and there's lots of ways of being more inventive and making it work without dairy.

Having said that, this book doesn't claim to be vegan, and there are some dishes - typically the ones that originate in asia (Thai, for instance, or Indian) which don't use cheese or dairy. And that's just a minor thing, anyway.

The reason it doesn't get five stars is my minor cheese concern, and also the fact that it uses (and relies) on having lots of herbs and spices, and as someone who doesn't do a lot of proper cooking (I'm only writing this review after several months of having it, and cooking less than one dish a week) I had to buy the ingredients in specially.

If you have a well stocked cupboard, however, and don't mind a bit of cheese, then this book is full of possibilities, and I would suggest picking it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb veggie recipies. 12 April 2009
By D. Lee
Format:Paperback
This book is a gem for the vegetarian cook. It has recipies for both a simple meal and also for more formal occasions and yet the ingredients required are not difficult to find and the book is a very handy size. I have used this book from end to end many times as a dedicated vegetarian and I have bought several copies as presents for friends and they also love it too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Varied recipes 28 Dec. 2011
By Benjamin TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is the third book in this series I have acquired, and although I enjoy a vegetarian meal, I am not a vegetarian, and so am not au fait with the ins and outs of vegetarianism, however the recipes here are as interesting as those in the other Hamlyn books I have, and it follow the same format.

The brief introduction looks at the basic principles and the possible health benefits of vegetarian eating, and also what one needs in a basic larder; there then follows a brief overview of some of the ingredients featured in some of the recipes along with explanations of the more unusual terms. Then follows the recipes under the headings: breakfast & brunch, starters & snacks, main meals, soups & stews, breads & baking, and desserts. Each recipes occupies a page, with a full colour photograph of the finished dish on the facing page.

The recipes are very varied and look interesting, and range from the quick and simple to the more complex and much longer, either in preparation or cooking times. Eggs, cheese, and nuts in variety frequently feature in the recipes, and sometimes fruit and veg appear in the same recipe, but I am surprised there are not more based on beans. Those that do include beans usually list canned beans and not dried beans among the ingredients. Even so the very simple recipes for baked beans needs two hours cooking time, (and in this particular instance I have used far more interesting recipes for backed beans).

I did have difficulty finding recipes from the index, it seems each recipe is listed just the once, for example to find the baked beans mention above one needs too look for beans, and then follow down the list to find "Home baked beans" - all right if you know that, otherwise not finding "baked beans" you might conclude there is none.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wide range of veggie recipes 12 Dec. 2011
By Marand TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am slightly mystified by some of the reviews of this book. It isn't the 'best' or most innovative, exciting vegetarian cook book ever and it doesn't purport to be a vegetarian nutrition guide. That said, there are some nice recipes which are generally very easy & quick to prepare, and don't involve ingredients which wouldn't be found in any decently stocked larder. The recipes also cover a fair range of cooking styles (Italian, Indian, Thai, etc) so there should be something for everyone. Some dishes do rely on cheese or eggs and I don't think I spotted anything involving Quorn or TVP - mercifully in my view as I can't abide either! As with most general cookbooks some dishes are healthier than others.

At this time of year a bowl of warming soup makes a great light supper and there are plenty to choose from including pea, potato & rocket; sweet potato & coconut (very more-ish); pumpkin with olive salsa; curried carrot & lentil; plus some old favourites like bean & pasta soup (although I have enough recipes for that not to need another one). There is a range of starters including sweetcorn and kaffir lime fritters served with a chilli jam, baked figs, & tofu with chilli vinegar dressing. Main courses include a range of rice dishes, pasta in various forms, and curries. I liked the butternut squash, tofu & pea curry and the stir-fried tofu with basil & chilli. Other dishes include onion, pumpkin & sage pie and a simple, light dish of spaghetti with broad beans and lemon (nice now but it will be even better next summer with fresh baby broad beans from the garden).

The salads & sides section is fairly pedestrian although I liked the spiced braised new potatoes, the vegetable tempura, and the char-grilled polenta triangles (made using quick cook polenta so not time-consuming).
