Format: Paperback
5:2 Vegetarian by Celia Brooks is a handy sized recipe book which clearly states the number of calories per recipe which helps immensely when catering for many who are concerned about the food they eat. I particularly love the neat and short section on looking after vegetables, pulses and fruits. If you're wondering what to do with the courgette lying in the fridge, you can just return to the book to discover different and unusual ideas.
My favourites are the Thai Salad Wraps with Chargrilled Tofu, Vegetable and Chickpea Tagine and Creamy Mushroom Caps. I've got my menu sorted!

I have just borrowed this from the library and now intend to buy it. Why am I impressed? Firstly unlike most diet books the meals are not for 4 people [a bugbear of mine] they are for either one or two servings, if for two servings, you are advised if it can be Kept in the fridge or can be frozen. Even better she also advises how they can be multiplied up, and what to add to feed none dieters, or you could use these tips for meals on none fast days. All receipes are calorie counted and on non fast days you can have[if you wish] the larger portions which will still be low in calories and vitally the meals look and taste good.

I have been a vegetarian for over 25 years. This has a good selection of recipes and those I have tried so far are quick, tasty and satisfying. Would recommend if you are doing the 5:2 but also if you just fancy including a few homemade vegetarian meals into your week. There are hints and tips how to use the recipes for non fasters. Don't be put off by lack of photos in the book, the food tastes great!

I've been following Celia Brooks' 5:2 adventures on her blog and am happy to say I've lost over a stone already using her delicious recipe ideas. I'm thrilled her book is finally out. It's quite hard to find really good veggie recipes for the diet (not sure why? as Celia points out, the diet is really made for veggies) but here there are loads. More than anything I've found it quite simple to do and felt healthier and not at all deprived. It's really changed my mindset. Although there are no pictures in the book, it's easy to get a sense of the recipes as Celia describes them really well. And they all seem to be super simple to cook too. Buy this book, you certainly won't be disappointed!

I am delighted with this book. It is full of really tasty and easy recipes. Just what I was looking for to help me to attempt dieting. I am generally useless at diets but feel two days a week maybe just possible for me. Can't wait to get stuck in. 2014 will see me slimmer I fan feel it in my bones.

For the price was expecting a book with colour pictures so a bit surprised not to have them. The recipes sound nice although as yet i have not tried them and I am looking forward to that. But my main gripe with the book is the printing. It looks faded in places . but i think it is the style as it is consistent throughout the book with some type in a less bold font which is quite small anyway but the overall effect makes it look like the ink is running out and it makes it hard to read and follow. Sorry but for a cookery book i want goot size print that I dont have to hold close to see.

I don't think the recipes are fuss-free and they are not quick. They contain ingredients not easily obtainable or affordable. The book doesn't have page numbers therefore to re-find a recipe it's very difficult. I am very disappointed with the book.

I was interested in this book as seems exactly what our family had wanted. We had started the 5:2 diet with the excellent "2 day diet" book by Michelle Harvie and Tony Howell, but this only has a few vegetarian recipes. Unfortunately the 5:2 vegetarian book does have some problems. Although there are over 100 recipes, some of them are pretty basic - including one for a microwaved baked potato! We also felt more hunger pangs with some of them as they can still be carb-heavy (baked potato being as prime example). The 2 day diet approach is to include much more protein in the form of eggs, nuts and tofu etc and this does seem to be more satisfying.

Have said that there are some excellent ideas in here and useful tips too. Favourites include the caponata "flavour bomb" and the use of sauerkraut and tinned artichokes as low calorie bulk foods.

So, not perfect but a useful addition to a 5:2 vegetarian kitchen.
