My husband and I have been vegetarians for about twenty years and are raising our kids vegetarian too. For years I've always brought veggie burgers and tofu pups to other people's barbeque parties every summer. I thought we needn't bother owning a grill of our own because all we could make on it would be garden burgers anyway (how exciting is that? not very!) Anyway, this book has shown me how wrong I was. We recently acquired a very nice gas grill and I have been cooking up a storm on it! I've been using this cookbook and everything has been delicious. Not one bad recipe so far. I had a BBQ party of my own finally for my sons first Birthday recently and it was a totally hit. I made veggie pizzas (with the recipe from this book, although I used my own pizza dough recipe.)I grilled up all the veggies and than had everyone fix their own pizzas which I grilled for them. It was a lot of fun. Everyone gobbled them them up, raving about how delicious they were. Plus it was nice for people to see that a BBQ doesn't have to revolve around meat.
As for the comment below about the chicken stock, there is one recipe that says you can use either veggie or chicken stock. (I haven't noticed any others.) I agree it shouldn't be in the book. Vegetarian means no meat at all. I didn't see any mention about adding meat to the recipes, though I haven't read every page of this book, so maybe I just haven't seen it. I haven't seen any recipes that actually call for meat or anything. (No mention in the index either.)
So far I've made about 6 recipes from this book and they have been totally great. Plus, despite the fact that I'd say I know my way around a kitchen, I'd never grilled before and there was a useful chapter just talking about tools. (A vegetable grill rack is a *must* have for veggie grilling. I use mine constantly and would have been very frustrated had I not known about it.) To me, a newbie vegetarian griller this book has been indispensable. My husband keeps commenting on how fun it is to sit out on our deck and eat yummy food from the grill.
