4.0 out of 5 stars no cookbook is perfect....., 19 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Linda McCartney's Home Cooking: Quick, Easy and Economical, Vegetarian Dishes for Today (Hardcover)
.....and this book certainly isn't !!

From what I have read about this book products such as Quorn, TVP etc were just starting to become widely available. And despite the success of Peter Cox's book “why you don't need meat”, no publisher was initially interested in this book, as they claimed books without meat wouldn't sell.

Having said that, it has a conversion chart both front and back, it is full of substitutions for protein, and all the useful things you can have in your kitchen cupboards that are widely available from local shops and superstores. It covers all the things from fruit and veg, to nuts, legumes, grains, as well as the “eat well plate” of protein, carbs, fruit & veg, dairy and fats....... and vitamins and minerals. And all this is covered from page 6 to page 49.

The recipes are not only in their sections (soups, snacks, main courses etc), but they are also in alphabetical order. Not all the recipes use TVP etc, there are quite a lot of veg dishes too. In the “main courses” section there is a “good source of...” listed under the recipes. And even though a lot of dairy is used throughout the book, the front section mentions about using low fat sources of dairy, but I suppose dairy free substitutions can also be used as well.

All-in-all I would say that considering that this was 1 of the earlier vegetarian cookbooks it is a very good book, but then again I like it anyway whether it was an earlier book, or not. I reckon it is full of yummy, delicious recipes and I personally can't wait to start using it.
