I ordered this book as my wife and I are trying to eat healthier and we also have some vegetarian friends. We thought we would try to sample some new recipes on them and get feedback. We have only used the book a few times but to rave reviews! It is full of simple ideas with a twist, like a jam souffle omelet and a veggie breakfast! From soups to salads to mains and gorgeous desserts, this book is choc full of ideas for any pallet. Next on our list to try is the Tiramisu, a firm favourite of the wife!! If you are vegetarian or just love veggie feasts from time to time, give this book a try. You wont be disappointed!!

An ideal gift for any household - except if someone is Vegan!!

Good wholesome recipes, good to look at on the page and not too difficult to cook. Can be for everyday meals, although some recipes are quite fancy.

A heavy bias towards the dairy industry - so Vegans will really have to look elsewhere.

Most meals would be very acceptable to non veggies as the ones cooked so far have been delicious.

Hamlyn All Colour Cookbook 200 Veggie Feasts: Over 200 Delicious Recipes and Ideas

At this price its a must for the shopping basket - you can't go wrong - buy one before they go back up in price.

This is a super little book which should be on every vegetarian cook's bookshelf. I think it would also appeal to many non-vegetarians, with a good selection of recipes for easy non-meat supper dishes and side dishes. The recipes are accompanied by excellent colour photographs of the finished dish which all look very appetising. Great value!

Having been a vegetarian for quite a few years I have spent a lot of my time trying to find good recipe books: ones that weren't filled to the rafters with cop-out recipes, such as massive pudding sections (which are of-course going to be vegetarian), or ones that have lots of different soups and a variety of pizzas, so that when you actually look they only actually contain a few useful recipes to add to your repertoire.

Although this book does at times fall into that trap, it is for the most part filled with different meal ideas, all of them looking absolutely scrummy.

Each recipe has been generously given its own photograph. They all look relatively quick and easy, with the average cooking time being 20-35 minutes. I think this book would make a nice present for a student who is hoping to be a bit more adventurous in their cooking.

This book is compact, with a 'wipe clean' cover, with clear photographs, illustrations and lists of ingredients, etc. Instructions are straightforward, and there is an interesting range of dairy and non-dairy veggie recipes. Well recommended

This is such a shame. This book would be a very usefull standby on a home cook's shelf, if it weren't for the complete disregard the author shows for their own health advice! In the introduction, the reader is cautioned about depending too much on dairy products, particularly if they have usually been carnivorous. Over 90% of the recipes include milkstuffs, and often huge-measure combinations of them in the same dish. Particularly disappointing is the realisation that the author seems oblivious that Parmesan is not vegetarian. You can buy a 'Vegetarian Parmesan', if you're willing to pay for it... Honestly, olive oil does the job very well alone.

Only four recipes use Tofu. Any frequent or lifelong veggie would tell you that Tofu, Quorn and Textured Vegetable Protein are all great and versatile options, all deserving of regular mention.

Overall, this is one of the weaker books in the Hamlyn series. I would not recommend it as a sourcebook for any carnivore who's Veggie-Curious: I'd point them to budget editions of Rose Elliot's books or one of the Linda McCartney set. I would point Louise Pickard to these books too, as she clearly needs to learn her stuff!

This is a little pocket sized book of vegetarian recipes. It is packed with helpful ideas. We've tried a few of the recipes and they were okay without being amazing.
