Sorry to add to the chorus of praise but this book really is remarkable - - don't quite know why! I am a cookery book addict -- I have shelves-full, all of which looked wonderful at the time of buying but very, very few of the recipes I hve tried have made it into my everyday cooking. I bought this book recently, along with a couple of other veggie books, because we had a vegetarian au pair coming to work for us and, although we were committed carnivores ourselves at the time, I thought I'd like to learn a few recipes for her. Well, almost every recipe we have tried out of this book (about 12 so far) has been (a) delicious and (b) easy; we now eat vegetarian 99% of the time from choice as a result and my food bills have gone right down! Interestingly, the other two veggie books I bought, including one with a very similar title from a different publisher, have proved complete washouts and despite repeated read-throughs I've only used once each. Honestly, after literal years of wasting my money on one glossy cookbook after another I can tell you that this one is a class apart.

I am new to vegetarianism and was recommended Rose Elliott's books. I ordered a few of them and then came across this little gem. Now I am not a student I am 31 but this has to be the best veggie cookbook I have seen! Full of mostly easy recipes. I tried the Baked eggs this morning made with peppers, courgettes, onion, garlic, tomato, chilli flakes, paprika, chives and it was stunning! Something so simple but tasted wonderful.

No veggie should be without this book!

I have discovered so many delicious recipes in this little book that I always await the weekend in anticipation to have the chance to cook something from here (sadly, no time on week nights for serious cooking - but if I could, I'd love to eat the things here every day!) Everything is easy and quick to make, but some recipes require special ingredients that you might not be able to get in your corner shop. Before I discovered this little book, my dinners consisted either of rice with fried vegetables or pasta with stir-in tomato sauce... not exactly the most exciting veggie dishes on the planet! But the Vegetarian Student Cookbook enabled me to try new dishes that taste good, don't cost a fortune and are easy to make too.

Well. What can I say? I'm thoroughly impressed with this book. I adore cooking, but I'm not really one for complicated recipes - this book is JUST what I've been looking for, for so long. I've been enthusing about this wildly!! I recommend it to anyone that's looking for simple but tasty recipes, and especially those with no patience for cooking (like me)! Students, watch out, soon you'll be eating healthily and you won't even realise it!

I bought this book as an after-thought thinking it might have some easy and affordable recipes in - it definitely does and much more. This should really be branded as a cookbook for everyday living - its full of tasty recipes that are easy and quick to cook, using ingredients that are widely available and not too expensive. We use it for 2 or 3 meals a week and some of the dishes have become firm family favourites. If I took one cookbook on a desert island (hoping it had a nearby supermarket!) this would be it - its great

My student days were over some 15 years ago, but I bought this book because I wanted to increase my repertoire of vegetarian meals. While I don't need to learn how to bake a potato, (which is included in this book) I wanted fairly easy recipes without hugely long ingredient lists. This cookbook suits the bill, perfectly. My Rose Elliot and Leith's veggie cookbooks are languishing in the cupboard barely used at present because I keep on going back to this one.

I've made several recipes so far. Most of them I found delicious and would definitely make again.

The marketing of this book is gimmicky - lots of bright colours, little buzzwords like 'fun, cheap, party' which may or may not appeal, I don't take much notice of it. Usually I prefer books with pictures to show the finished product, but I've generally found the instructions easy enough to follow.

There are a couple of minor mistakes, like mentioning a 'cooking time' for hummous when it's made with tinned chickpeas, and I'm convinced that the fruit cake recipe doesn't ask for enough milk unless my scales are badly inaccurate. Because of that I'm giving it four stars rather than five, but most of the time it is very reliable.

Although it is not necessarily a *bad* book, I don't believe it is cheap, or simple. Suggested simple meals are "jacket potatoes" and "poaches eggs", and suddenly the jump is made to the likes of "leeks baked with blue cheese" and "pumpkin goulash", which make up the bulk of the book. There are no real intermediate meals. Neither are the meals cheap

The lack of in-between cooking would be fine if something more exotic was what you wanted, but it's not appropriate in a student cook book. The same applies for the likes of the cocktail and juices section. It also does not help that there is no pictures within the book, which would be handy to know what the meal your cooking should look like.

What stops me giving this a lower rating is that there are some good recipes, such as the "sticky muesli bars". But please, don't think that you can leave home with limited cooking experience and that this will help you on you're way.
