5.0 out of 5 stars Simple & brilliant, 30 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rose Elliot's New Complete Vegetarian (Hardcover)
We've been on a vegetarian kick off and on for a few months now and as a consequence have been looking at and buying a few veggie cookbooks.
I've been pretty surprised about the general malaise of these books - often terribly earnest and serious tomes written by worthy joy stranglers who are vegetarians for "all the right reasons". Or on the other side full of massive pictures and silly recipes like "broccoli & breadcrumbs". Apart fropm this not being a recipe, more an idea, it certainly doesn't deserve a huge picture.. it smacks of being shortchanged and it looks like there's plenty of publishers on the market that can push any old tosh out and justify it because they're catering to a niche audience.
Cheerfully there are a few that I've found that are fantastic however and this is probably the best of the bunch.

The recipes are clear, well written by someone who obviously cooks and it contains more or less everything you'll need to set yourself on an accessible, tasty vegetarian diet. No oddball ingredients or prohibitively exotic spices - just simple and good meals. What more could one ask for? If you fancy trying a bit of vegetarian fodder for a while this is the place I'd recommend you start.

Unlike a lot of other veggie cookbooks Rose Elliot seems less on a crusade for vegetarianism and more just for good food that happens not to feature meat. I like it a lot. Apart from the recipe for red cabbage casserole - make and eat this at your own risk.....

What's wrong with the red cabbage casserole?! I haven't tried it, but I was going to, until I read your post. Please enlighten me!

There's nothing wrong with it persay sir. It's quite tasty however, experience shows that it promotes an almost comedic level of industrial strength methane production within 24hrs. If you are a submariner I'd give this gear a wide berth. I can put in no more politely than this.
