4.0 out of 5 stars Good simple and tasty, 14 July 2008
This review is from: Good Food: 101 Veggie Dishes (Tried-and-Tested Recipies) (Paperback)
I have made lots of the recipes in this book (in fact its one of my most used recipe books)- they are always tasty, and filling, and generally fairly cheap and quick and easy to make. Unlike alot of recipe books, it tends to use mainly ingredients you would have in your cupboard, with means less trips to the shops and less money spent (and you dont end up with a cupboard full of stuff you bought for a recipe and will never use again!)

Its also fairly unsahamed about using tinned stuff or ready made sauces if it makes the recipe quicker of easier, which is a plus, and often pute in alternatives things you can use if you dont have a particular ingredient, or suggests alternative ways of cooking something to make it easier.

I'm not vegetarian, but I do like vegetarian, and didnt find that I felt like any of the recipes I made were missing meat.

Only one minor quibble - they often recommend using vegetarian alternatives to ingredients, for example vegetarian parmesan, vegetraian pesto, vegetarian feta, and I found these pretty hard (or impossible). If you are a meat eater like me, and can use normal parmesan/pesto etc, then this book is fine. If you are Vegetarian and know where to get necessary veggie alternatives, also fine. If you are a meat eater looking for something to cook for vegetarian friends, be prepared to change your recipes if you cant find the right ingredients.

You can get vegetarian pesto / cheese from any supermarket or co-op. I'm a vegetarian and I never struggle.

Yep, agreed. Most supermarkets will do vegetarian (and vegan!) alternatives to dairy and rennet products. Usually to be found in "free from" isles. Never struggled myself either.
