Book Description

9 Aug 2001
We all know that particular foods can make you feel good. Vegetarian Express contains healthy recipes for instant energy and vitality throughout the day. With more than 100 recipes, the emphasis is on fresh fruit and vegetables, nuts, seeds, grains and pulses, and organic ingredients whenever possible. Rose Elliot has created recipes for health, flavour, energy and speed which include: fresh start breakfasts; energy-shot snacks; vitality-boosting lunches; quick fixes for the end of the day; perfect puddings and quick cakes. Special care has been taken to ensure that many recipes are dairy and wheat-free to zap allergies and boost vitality, and all dishes have been calorie counted for the diet conscious cook. With quick, clear and simple recipes, this is a fun, lively, up-beat book which shows how fun and healthy vegetarian food can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best vegetarian cook books I own! 7 Dec 2001
By A Customer
Being a fairly fussy vegetarian I have accumulated a variety of cook books, and have found "Vegetarian Express" to be one of the best. The book is split into sections which makes it easy to choose a recipe for any time of the day and any type of hunger! At the start of each recipe there is good dialog about the nutritional value and fat contents of each meal. An excellent vegetarian cook book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buying a veggie cook book? Buy this! 14 Sep 2006
By Jane
I have a shelf full of veggie recipe books, and a number of Rose Elliot books. This is my favourite, and the one I have used the most.

There are delicious salads (warm butter bean salad with spring onions and maple mustard dressing), yummy mains (Mexican tortillas with peppers and beans) and healthy sweets (blueberry muffins made using rapeseed oil and skimmed or soya milk).

The recipes are simple and delicious and are ideal for those of us who just don't want to spend hours in the kitchen making healthy, tasty vegetarian meals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic book from Rose Elliot 28 Jun 2007
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have Rose Elliot's 2 other books (Veggie meals in minutes and Veggie chic) and so was slightly hesitant about ordering yet another book by the same author, fearing a repetition of recipes. However, I was not disappointed - the recipes are new and original, taste great, are quick and easy to prepare, not to mention the fact that they're bursting with vitamins and antioxidants. I love the fact that Rose Elliot tells you how many calories you're getting out of your portions and the various vitamins that can be found in each meal. The recipes are easy to cook and use readily-available ingredients; but strangely, they are never boring as you'd expect from common ingredients. If you want good food but don't have much time to spare, this will surely motivate you to get into the kitchen and throw away your ready meals.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab! 10 Nov 2005
This is the first Rose Elliot book I've had after getting it as a gift, and it won't be the last - The recipes are easy to follow and I've used the book loads - one of my favourites is the pasta with cherry tomato, feta and aubergine, so quick and so lovely! Can't recommend highly enough......

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-buy for cookery-hating vegetarians! 28 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Rose Elliot is my favourite vegetarian cookery writer as her recipes are always simple to make and use easily-available ingredients. I rushed out to buy this book and I am definitely not disappointed. 'Vegetarian Express' has a wonderful variety of recipes. I am not naturally gifted when it comes to cookery, but even I didn't have any problems following these recipes. The dishes themselves are delicious (especially the soups and puddings). What I like best about this book is that she uses soya milk in her recipes (she states that you can use normal milk) as I am allergic to dairy products. This book is a must-buy for any vegetarian who doesn't want to spend hours cooking.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Rose Elliot's best 26 Oct 2005
By Gina J
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'd stopped buying Ms Elliot's books as they tended to repetition of recipes sometimes. However, she has a new angle and new recipes, which have provoked interesting meals. Useful and good value. (And hoorah, no longer outdated advice to salt aubergines before using!)
