3.0 out of 5 stars Only for Beginners 3 Feb 2004
By A Customer - Published on
I haven't been experimenting in vegetarian/vegan cooking for more than a few months and I didn't find anything helpful in this book. Most of the recipes are just traditional recipes that call for a substitute for meat. For example: any semi-experienced cook knows to substitute store bought soy meatballs in a spaghetti and meatballs recipe. The recipe for macaroni and cheese is quite pointless. Anyone can substitute soy cheese in a traditional recipe like that; it's not rocket science.
There are no recipes for seitan, only broths in which to cook it. In fact, almost every recipe calls for a pre-manufactured meat substitute. This is a very common problem in vegetarian cookbooks. In the beginning of the book the author pokes fun at other vegetarian cooks who use hard to find ingredients but yet every recipe requiring sweetner calls for "FruitSource" sugar which is very hard to find, and very expensive compared to beat or cane sugars.
I really want to give this book 1 star but it does have a lot of variety and there are a few recipes that are quite good. It would be useful to someone who doesn't know quite how to start eating a vegetarian diet, but experienced cooks should try another book.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 10 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on
I recently moved to Palm Springs California and was reccommended to a unique restaurant concept here called "Native Foods." It was there that I experienced as a non-vegetarian really some unbelieveable full flavored cuisine, all vegetarian! I noticed the book on display, the owner of the restaurant, Tanya Petrovna is also the co-author of this book. I took the book home and haven't been disappointed by a recipe yet! It's great to have the restaurant nearby as well! Their website is fun too. It's all great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mouth-watering and healthy! 16 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on
I was very pleased with this innovative book! Lots of great recipes to please the vegetarian...especially if you are cooking for those who are still meat-eaters! They will be fooled! I have made the Spring Rolls more than once and they are always a hit! I wish I could visit Tanya's restaurant...

This book helps vegetarians, and especially meat-eaters who wish to become vegetarians gradually, to adapt regualr recipes to vegetarian ones with their mock-up recipes using veggie ingredients instead of meat ones. Great book.

Vegetarian, but very complicated and long recipes. Too much work for me, as I am in my "higher years". old lady,
I will try to use some of them, but I am trying to be Vegie and my Husband is a meat eater, so I vegitarian recipes that are fast, because I have to cook for both of us!
