5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty Simple Creative Delicious! Go Molly! 25 Jun 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a very well thumbed cookbook in my house. We are not vegetarians but I have prepared many of the recipes for my family and they have been well received. I like the fact that Katzen's recipes have become so much more light and sophisticated and also more flavourful than those in her earlier cookbbooks-they relied too heavily on cheese and fat. The "Bulgur Noodles" alone are worth the price of this book. They are amazing! I also appreciate the sidebar tips and suggestions. The artwork is very attractive, as is the layout in general. The lack of photographs is not a problem-just watch the series on television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Mistake I Ever Made 26 Jun 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I wrote down the wrong number for a book club order, and ended up with "Vegetable Heaven" rather than a biography I wanted. Well, I won't be sending this one back!! I am not a vegetarian, but these are some of the most tempting recipes I've seen in a long time. We've tried the roasted vegetables--YUM! A perfect summer cookbook--many of the recipes are light but still full of tasty ingredients. The book is as visually appealling as the recipes. Can't wait to try out more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 8 Feb 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I collect cookbooks, especially those with a vegetarian slant, and this one is exceptional. The Firecracker Red Beans and the Pineapple Basmati Pilaf alone are worth the price of admission here. As usual, the author's directions are clear and complete. My only complaint is a lack of pictures. I know that illustrations are more in line with the author's style, but I DO miss the help which pictures give when planning how a meal will look when all put together.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite Mollie Katzen cookbook! 24 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I love this book! Mollie's recipes are easy to follow, and just as easy to alter in personal ways. Her ideas are great for using as a base for your own experimentation. The three layer Persian rice pilaf is a must try. It's a beautiful dish when baked as a mold...your guests will bow down at your feet! Try using chopped apricots instead of golden raisins in the carrot-cumin rice mixture. Mollie is a food goddess!

5.0 out of 5 stars simple, good and creative 7 Jan 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
"Vegetable Heaven" is a rare combination -- it is both very simple, very good and very creative. Mollie Katzen has learned the lesson that the real trick is to create good food by doing the right things to a few simple ingredients, rather than by pouring in ingredient after ingredient.
The cookbook is pleasantly organized into sensible but slightly unusual categories. The recipies themselves are clearly presented, with ingredients listed clearly on a side bar. And the deserts I've tried are excellent and easy to prepare. Furthermore, the cookbook is healthy without being dogmatic about it. Most of the recipies have little or no fat, but she's not afraid to use some butter where it's really worth it. Also, while not a vegan cookbook, vegans will find lots of recipies that they can use.
Mollie Katzen is one of the early vegetarian cookbook pioneers (she wrote the famous "Moosewood Cookbook" and "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest"), and her cookbooks have improved greatly since her first books. Another great book of hers is "Still Life with Menu".
