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 Tiny, but packs a punch! 28 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
I've looked at lots of vegetarian cookbooks, and they've all been a bit dull, all curried this and Moroccan that, but this little book is packed with great ideas, crossing the entire spectrum from soups and salads, to desserts and bakes, going a bit Oriental here, a bit British there, and so on. It's a varied mix, and as with all cookbooks, there's stuff in here you'll probably never make, but even so, it's never boring. It's also very cheap, and even if you only use a handful of the recipes, you'll get your money's worth.

The recipes are all clear and well-written, and while the book is too small and thick to open up and lay flat, it's small enough to easily hold in one hand while you cook. The only potential downside is that it's not a truly vegetarian collection; there's a recipe which uses oyster sauce, and quite a few use Parmesan cheese. Experienced veggies will know what to avoid, but it's never signposted anywhere, which may catch out the unwary. But that's a minor flaw in what turns out to be a great little book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little book 26 Feb 2010
By EJ77
Format:Paperback
This book is great. It's very hard to find a decent veggie cook book, most seem to be filled with recipes carnivores think we will like, rather than the things we want to be eating. It covers from starters to desserts and all look very tempting and quite easy to prepare. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I would have liked to see some recipes using quorn, soya and tofu, but it's quite easy to adapt the recipes yourself to include these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Range of Recipes! 2 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback
Two hundred tasty veggie feasts in a handy compact book. Great for both beginners and more experienced cooks. I love the wipe clean cover because I am a messy cook! Perfect for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. Covers breakfast & brunch, starters & snacks, main meals, soups & stews, salads & sides, breads & baking and desserts. All the recipes I have tried so far have been delicious. Favourites in this house are the Sweetcorn & Kaffir Lime Fritters and the Spinach & Mushroom Lasagne.
