Book Description

27 July 2004 Beyond Baked Beans
In typically groundbreaking fashion, Fiona Beckett sets out to revolutionise the way in which students cook and eat vegetarian food. This is a book that treats the post-Jamie generation to a feast of wonderful and affordable vegetarian recipes coupled with sensible advice on menu building, entertaining and nutrition. A book as much for the occasional meat-abstaining student as for the dedicated veggie household. The book comprises sections called 'Solo' (for beginners, or those living on their own or with limited resources); 'Sharing' (for those cooking for fellow students - or seeking to seduce fellow students!); and 'Show-Off' (for the more ambitious, eager to display their new-found cooking skills). There's also a section called 'Baking Therapy' (for the nostalgic, full of lots of recipes to remind you of home).

I absolutely love this book - it really is the best veggie cookbook I've ever come across!

All too often the angle is that if you're veggie you must be a) doing it to be healthy (in which case the recipe book neglects the gloriously calorific, cheesy, doughy stuff in favour of stiff, crunchy vegetables) or b) doing it and having difficulty (in which case you basically get fifty recipes for Shepherd's Pie except with quorn mince substitute).

It's not the book for you if you want millions of mouthwatering pictures, it's very wordy indeed - but personally I like that, and the advice given is so good it's a sure compensation. The author possibly likes the sound of her own voice a bit, mixing in family anecdotes and jokes with the informal tone, but the result is that it's actually very friendly, personal and funny to read.

The recipes themselves are frankly gorgeous, and genuinely creative - cucumber stirfry, pink thai coconut rice, basque butterbean stew and parsee-style spinach and cumin eggs are easy, exotic, and impressive. The best thing about them is their flexibility - there's usually two or three bullet points after every recipe explaining that if you don't have x, y will do just as well, or you could toss in a handful of z if you had some kicking about! This sort of attitude is, of course, PERFECT for a haphazardly-stocked student kitchen.

She provides pretty basic sections on food hygiene and veggie nutrition, but again, her tone is so witty and opinionated that you never feel patronised (and, let's face it, there are a lot of clueless students who really do NEED a section on basic nutrition, judging by some of the stoned wrecks I met in student Halls of Residence!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yum 20 Mar 2005
I have tried a number of vegetarian cookbooks, and this one is the easiest, yummiest and most down-to-earth. I keep coming back to it, and I still haven't tried everything. All the recipes are really simple, using everyday store-cupboard items. I've even learned how to make my own pasta sauces. The only downside I can think of is that it is split into sections for meals for one or four people which might suit some fine, but it means you have to do some maths when you just want to cook for yourself as most students do. Luckily the rest of my flatmates love this book too and I'm also going to get a copy of this book for my mum.

This book is great - I have tried loads of the recipes and they all work really well. The tone of the writing is also pretty good, and the recipes are easy to follow. Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beyond baked beans 14 Aug 2009
By Tiz
I've been a die hard veggie all my life and this book is ideal for quick, simple meals especially if your on a budget, lets face it most of us are with the credit crunch. This is an ideal book for anyone trying a vegetarian diet for the first time, a good buy as a pressie for a student.
