Format: Paperback
I would imagine this would be a great little book to have about if you are thinking of following a 'meat free Monday' but as a vegetarian it's not the greatest book to be honest.

It's 260 pages long, the first 20 are all about the food pyramid etc. not really very helpful.

The book is then broken into 6 chapters -
Soups
Pasta & noodles
Rice, grain and pulses
Casseroles, curries and bakes
Stir-fries, salads and vegetables
Breakfast, snacks and standbys

This book does have recipes like scrambled eggs, honey roasted vegetetables, cauliflower cheese and bruschetta
(do you need a recipe for these things?!?)

It doesn't have lemon risotto either, but it has maybe a couple of casseroles and curries worth a go, but other than that I wouldn't bother. I only paid £2 for my copy so I'm not too upset about owning it, but I would have been if I had paid more than that I think.

Bought this in the hope there would be some budget vegetarian recipes I could try out. I was somewhat disappointed. Yes there are some lovely mouthwatering dishes (although no lemon and leek risotto as a previous reviewer raves on about) but some of the ingredients required are very specialist and/or expensive such as balsamic vinegar, soba noodles, nori and ponzu sauce (whatever that is!)So I will try some of these recipes with cheaper/more readily available ingredients from my local supermarket. I also noted that the book was published initially in Australia which may explain why some of the ingredients are hard to come by in the UK.
Overall I don't think this is a good book for a student or budget conscious veggie.

Contains some interesting sounding recipes as well as some basic ones. The most annoying thing however is the inaccuracy of some of the recipes. I found several recipes marked as 'Vegan' when in fact they contained eggs, honey, cheese etc. Also some recipes which were totally vegan were not marked as such. The last recipe in the book is for 'Garlic Mushrooms' but the ingredients and the recipe do not mention mushrooms and seems to be for cheese on toast! All in all i'd say its worth it if you can get it for £2 and ignore the labelling.

This was on my daughter's 'essential' book list for university. I thought yeah right, like when have you ever cooked? Know where the saucepans are kept at home? Nope. Another wasted exercise in buying books that will never be opened - hmmm no. In fact I have to eat humble pie (vegetarian of course!). This book actually has easy to follow, sensible (not full of expensive ingredients from Islington type delis)recipes that taste good. I can only hope she has a go at cooking the meals suggested, if not bring the book back home to me - I'll certainly use it! The lemon and leek risotto, in particular, is very good.
