Each chapter is stacked full of recipes that will keep you going with something new for a while. In addition, and this is something that runs through all HFW cookbooks, all recipies are achievable, quick/relatively quick to cook and contain ingredients that can all be purchased locally rather than online. I haven't found a single recipe that I will not try and again, in keeping with previous HFW cookbooks, he has outlined simple variations on the recipies and has thought about practicalities of some recipies by suggesting them as a simple, healthy alternatives to a boring sandwitch at lunch.
A fantastic cookbook. Highly recommended.
I've recently been focusing on the need to add more veg to my diet, but all my vegetarian cookbooks either try to replace meat (think tempeh and nut loaf),just chuck the veg with some pasta or into a pie, or have a list of exotic ingredients as long as your arm.
This book doesn't focus on what's missing in a vegetarian diet, but focuses on the veg and how to make them taste great in a number of simple ways. I've had the book for a month and used it at least 10 times. The recipes are easy to follow, the suggestions for modifications are brilliant, and the food just tastes good. Even my carnivore husband has complimented the recipes and asked for more!
Which brings me to another point - these recipes are very easy to chuck some chicken or fish into if you fancy. You just don't happen to miss it if you don't.
I have recommended this book to all my friends and will continue to use it on a regular basis. It's fab!
In fact, I think it was worth buying for the roasted veg ratatouille recipe. I've served it as part of a mediterranean-style buffet and it is definitely the star dish. The tomato sauce, which is used for completing the ratatouille, smelled absolutely divine while bubbling away on the cooker top, and could easily be slung over some pasta for a quick supper, or used on a pizza base. I love the word 'fragrant'... which, quite possibly, describes the sauce and the finished ratatouille best in my view.
Not even remotely disappointed with this book. Instead, I would say that it exceeded my already high expectations. Perhaps, if you are an experienced home cook, you will want something more challenging, but I find it very difficult to believe reviews which state that the results of their efforts were 'bland' or the recipes 'uninspiring'. I am a rather experienced cook myself. Having a collection of recipes which combine vegetables - and vegetables totally sans meat! - with such insight into their varying properties is an absolute asset to any kitchen, in my opinion.
Within the first chapter alone there are so many flavourful and interesting recipes that it just makes you want to get cooking and this continues throughout what is a generous number of recipes. I am confident that all cooks will benefit from adding this book to their collection and will certainly not be disappointed!

This book is fabulous. All the recipes work well, although they need a little more seasoning for my personal taste but that's only a minor. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Ona
