In this expert and one-of-a-kind collection, veteran cookbook author Maria Robbins lifts the lid off healthy, hearty vegetarian cooking. Anyone who longs for something new on the table will find plenty to choose from, with recipes that use techniques and flavors from Creole, Chinese, Mexican, Italian, Moroccan, and other cuisines--each one a well-rounded meal in itself. A colorful cookbook that celebrates whole grains, fresh vegetables, and spices from around the world, The One-Dish Vegetarian is just right for part-time, full-time, and first-time vegetarians-and anyone else with a taste for fast, flavorful meals that come all in one dish.

Whether you're a card-carrying vegetarian or one of millions of people looking for lighter, healthier alternatives to traditional meat-as-main-course meals, The One-Dish Vegetarian will bring an irresistible feast of fresh ideas to your kitchen. Veteran cookbook author Maria Robbins presents one hundred new soups, stews, chilis, pasta and rice dishes, casseroles, sautes, curries, and salads-each in its own pot, and each a healthful, flavorful delight.

Using the freshest ingredients of each season and vibrant spices from around the world, the recipes include Fusilli with Broccoli and Peanut Sauce; Moroccan Eggplant, Tomato, and Chick-Pea Stew; Soba Noodles with Mushrooms and Peas; Sag Harbor's Vegetarian Chili; Risotto with Butternut Squash and Sage; Vegetarian Paella; Saute of Summer Vegetables with Corn; Green Chili with White Beans; and many more.

Summary: You need to pick this one!
Comment: I actually bought this book because my dr said I needed to go on a low-cholesterol diet and the low-cholesterol cookbooks weren't going to help me with the transition because I found those recipes bland, bland, bland. So, I started checking out the vegetarian cookbooks. I wound up with 6 cookbooks between the 2 subject matters. Every single recipe in the One-Dish Vegetarian cookbook has been absolutely delicious even to a mid-western raised "where's the beef" type person. Some of the recipes sound strange (for example, Spaghetti with carmelized onions) but don't let that keep you from trying it. This was actually one of my favorites. Only one word of caution...the portions are very large. I started splitting the recipies in half and my husband and I still had enough leftover for my lunch the next day. I did NOT half the seasonings though. I do have one tiny complaint--the "one-dish" name is misleading. You will have a little dishwashing to do....

Summary: Misleading Title
Comment: The recipes are delicious and nutritious, but require way more than one dish to prepare. In fact, I had a whole load of dishes on my hands after making Spinach-Lentil Pasta. It was worth it, but I thought this book would have simpler recipes. Also, the writer openly admits to not being a vegetarian herself, so if you want basic, staple recipes for a vegetarian diet, get a different book. However, it is a nice addition to a veggie library.

Summary: Nothing I could use
Comment: I bought this book based on the good reviews, but unfortunately I did not see any recipes that I found all that appealing, and many of them called for ingredients that would be hard for me to find. To be fair, I live in a pretty rural area where lots of things are hard to find without having to drive 50 miles. I returned the book.

Summary: Love this book! Veggie recipes for everyone!
Comment: I love this book! I have had it for many years and I have had my meat eating friends and family ask me for some of the recipes. No weird, exotic ingredients, everything can be found at your neighborhood grocery store. This is a great addition to your cookbook library...even if you are not a vegetarian.
