    This may well be my favorite cookbook. I've made many many of the dishes in it, and have never come across a dud. These are savory, tasy recipes for everything from hors d'oeuvres, to soups, to entrees, and deserts. The book is lavishly illustrated, and the recipes are detailed, precise, and contain really good advice on possible adjustments for tastes, oven conditions, etc. There's tons of nutrition and food history information to be had, as well.

    This is my favourite cookbook of all time. Every recipe I've made has been delicious. Sometimes I find with vegetarian cookbook's they try to be a bit too unique and different and use ingredients that I've never even heard of, and then I have to make a special trip to the supermarket. This one is not like that. Most of the recipes have all the ingredients that I already have in the fridge or pantry and still taste amazing. This is my food bible.

    Beautiful pictures, terrible recipes. I think this may be a British book because many of the amounts are in grams rather than teaspoons or cups. Now I think I'm convinced the British have no palate. I mean seriously, green beans with a bit of chewed up tomato on top counts as a recipe? No wonder there were so many copies of this at the local used book store. Want something tasty? Chew on the pages - it's better than the ten or so recipes I tried in this book. Sorry used book store - you're getti Beautiful pictures, terrible recipes. I think this may be a British book because many of the amounts are in grams rather than teaspoons or cups.

    Picked this book up at the Library's Used Book Store. It was written and first published in Australia. Australian Vegetarians do not rely on tofu and soy products as the US does. Beans, pulses and lentils are the mainstay and this book uses them in many interesting and tasty ways. Great all around book and that will stay in my kitchen.

    I just love this cookbook! I often use it to cook for my non-veg parents, and they've loved everything I've made. It has tons of interesting recipes that go beyond your typical boring pasta, salad, etc. I highly recommend the chickpea and lentil burgers, and the spinach and avocado salad. I like the paperback version, as it has a plastic cover and thick, glossy paper: very easy to cook with.

    Great pictures and a good section on nutrition, including a list of "hero foods" that provide of lot of essential vitamins in one fell swoop. Recipes have helpful tips in the sidebars. Includes many tarts and veggie pies. This is one I hope to get my hands on again soon.

    Perfect vegetarian cookbook--not too much pasta, lots of interesting bean and other protein recipes. Things to stay away from: the muffins and breads and the second worst cooking disaster in my kitchen: the squash raviolis.

    Lots of interesting recipes, and beautiful pictures. I'd consider buying this one if it wasn't in the library!
