Product Description

Product Description

Leon: Fast Vegetarian enables you to make the most of the fresh vegetables available in markets, allotments, veg boxes and supermarkets. The philosophy at the heart of this book is about cooking and eating delicious, healthy fast food made from sustainable ingredients. Eating less - or no - meat has become key to the way many of us cook and this collection of more than 150 really simple, really fast recipes, is a treat for vegivores everywhere. The first part of the book offers Star Turns, those vegetable-based dishes that can stand alone as a whole meal, with ideas for Breakfast & Brunch, Pasta, Grains & Pulses, Pies & Bakes, Rice & Curry and Kids while the second part, Supporting Cast, explores accompaniments and smaller plates with chapters on Grazing Dishes, Sides, and Pickles, Salsas, Chutneys & Dressings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another winning cookbook from Leon 3 Mar 2014
If, like me, you've ever been stumped for what to cook your vegetarian friend, or just wanted to incorporate more veggies into your and your children's diet, this book is a godsend. It's full of simple, relatively quick, tasty dishes, all presented in Leon's standard stylised, accessible, home-cookbook manner.

The book's divided into two sections – one where the veggies are the stars and 'can stand on their own as a whole meal' and another where they're more the support act (i.e. side dishes). There seems to be a bit of crossover – particularly in the chapter dedicated to cooking for children – but by and large the first section is where you'll find mains and starters, the second sides (and a little chapter on fruity puddings).

The dishes are kept simple – 'Turnips, beetroot & orange', for example – but it's the combination of flavours, seasonings and dressings that give them the edge, and there are lots of combinations I wouldn't have thought of before. Plus (and probably most importantly) most of the ingredients are either the kind of thing you'd already have in your cupboards, or something that you could pick up easily. No more hunting around for obscure ingredients! I can see this becoming my go-to kitchen cookbook for many meals to come.

Sick of vegetarian cook books which rely heavily on cheese, eggs or pasta? Then this is the one for you. I have shelves of cool books, but this is my absolute tasty favourite as of a few weeks ago when so took the plunge and treated myself. I love this book, the recipes are quick, really work, and are yum. So far everything I have cooked has been delicious. As a plus the photos are very well organised, and endearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love all their books! 25 July 2014
By BeckyG
I LOVE all of these cookbooks. I'm vegetarian so was really happy that they have brought out a vegetarian book, I still adapted most recipes from the other books to suit my dietary requirements and enjoyed their sides and sauces. Lovely layout, great as a gift because of all the beautiful photos and the food is amazing. I have never cooked a bad meal from any of the LEON books.I would highly recommend this book if you love down to earth country food with huge flavour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Leon 19 July 2014
By pixie
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have all the big Leon books and this one is a must for your collection. I have a lot of books and I am very picky these days about which new ones I add to my collection.
This is hearty home cooking, great for family meals and not boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really useable cookbook 11 Jun 2014
I was looking for a new vegetarian cookbook as my 15 year old daughter has been slowly going off meat for a while, doesn't like cheese and I needed inspiration for dishes that we can all eat.

This is my new favourite cookbook!

Adventurous and unadventurous eaters are both catered for in this book; all the dishes I have tried so far are quick and easy to prepare, the recipes are well laid out, easy to read and accompanied by rather lovely photographs. There is a good mix of recipes all the way from vegetarian classics such as nut roast and stuffed vegetables to more unusual recipes such as tandoori cauliflower and pineapple curry (I really want to try the latter - it looks delicious). I am, indeed, inspired!
