Vegetarian Times Low-Fat and Fast

If you've been searching for a cookbook to help you put delicious meatless meals on the table in a hurry, then look no further. The editors of Vegetarian Times magazine, the leading authorities on the vegetarian lifestyle, have compiled this delicious collection of 150 recipes, all of which can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. In fact, many of the recipes are easy enough to complete in just 15 or 20 minutes.

Not just easy, all of the recipes in Vegetarian Times Low-Fat and Fast are low in fat, too. Of course, eating meatless meals is always healthful, but, as the Vegetarian Times editors explain, you still need to watch what you eat to stay fit and healthy. Light vegetarian cooking can be made simple by cutting back on eggs, using low-fat cheeses, sauteing with olive oil instead of butter, and trying healthy cooking techniques like grilling, broiling, roasting, and steaming, all of which bring out the best flavors in your food.

Whether you're a longtime vegetarian or vegan looking for some exciting new and easy recipes to try, or a "part-time" vegetarian just trying to eat meatless meals a few times a week for better health, this is the book for you. Vegetarian Times Low-Fat and Fast is a timesaving cookbook that will make anyone, even beginner cooks, feel at home in the kitchen.

Summary: Great Food, Vegetarian or Not
Comment: I am not a vegetarian but I love the recipes in this book. The muffuletta sandwich is awesome. I found the recipes very easy and tasty. They are also wonderful for entertaining.

Summary: Nice little book!
Comment: I bought this book mainly because I have been a fan of the recipes in the Vegetarian Times magazine for quite some time, but wanted a collection that was more geared towards watching calories and fat without getting too complicated. So far I have not been disappointed. I have made about 10 different recipes from this book and have found all of them to be tasty, these aren't real "gourmet" recipes for the most part, but they are fairly quick and tasty.

The prep time will take you longer if you aren't very skilled at chopping, but as an avid cook that has not been an issue for me. As for the comment about the nutritional info being off by quite a lot, this cookbook makes use of things like low-fat sour cream, low-fat cheese, tortillas, whole wheat buns, etc. Depending on which brand you buy of those items there can be a big difference in the calories. The nutritional software used for generating the info most likely just uses an average. I will say that I have been using their nutritional info to plan meals for my husband and myself and in the last month we have both lost weight.

I have noticed that some of the recipes in this book, for instance the mexican lasagna, are also contained in the Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook. I'm not sure yet just how much overlap there is.

Summary: NOT easy
Comment: These recipes are ridiculously complicated and each one has a multitude of ingredients. FAST & EASY? For who? Martha Stewart??
I'm using this book as a doorstop.

Summary: fantastic
Comment: I have used this book for a few years now and I love it. The recipes really are fairly fast and simple to follow. The nutritional information is provided for each recipe which really helps for people trying to follow certain diets like Weight Watchers. I recommend this book and have given it to others.

Summary: It should be called "BEAN AND PASTA COOKBOOK."
Comment: I assume that these editors know that grains such as quinoa, amaranth, rye, spelt, kasha and [has no one ever heard of?] wheat can make fine main or side dishes. I had hoped for some new ideas for these and other grains and vegetables on which I have thrived for years. Have they never heard of porridges? If you want speed, make porridge. And quinoa cooks in about fifteen minutes. Most small or cracked grains cook in 15-20 minutes.

I had assumed that there would be SOME bean recipes, although I am deathly allergic to all beans, and SOME pasta recipes even though pasta, too, ill suits my own particular physiology. Unfortunately, this is a BEAN and PASTA book, with an occasional, genial but uninspired reference to other foods. It makes the book essentially useless to me.

Far better books are availabe: The Greek, Italian, Indian vegetarian cookbooks, whole grain cookbooks, natural foods cookbooks.

An uninspired disappointment.
