4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic main courses, but salads and accompanying dishes slightly disappointing, 26 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Real Fast Vegetarian Food (Paperback)
I've made plenty of dishes from this book and am almost always surprised by just how good a few simple ingredients can turn out. The main courses are a definite winner and I have greatly enjoyed the canned tomato soup (probably the best tomato soup I've ever eaten), dill soup and the porcini risotto...just a few store cupboard ingredients and you get amazing, delicious food. I've made almost all the recipes in the main course chapter and have not once been disappointed.

I was a little less impressed with the salad and accompanying vegetable sections, some of which turned out a little bland or ordinary...I really don't see what was the point of including a "tomato and onion salad" in the book - it is hardly a dish that requires a recipe. There are a number of similar salads that everbody has made in their lives which I feel could have been omitted in favour of something more unusual.

However, the main meals and desserts are so good that you are instantly inclined to forgive Ursula her occasional disappointing moments, and despite the uninspiring salad section I find myself turning to the risottos, soups and pastas again and again. Worth buying just for your main meals.
