Editorial Reviews:

Vegetarian Times is known for its "great recipes" (Chicago Tribune), and this new edition of the Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook offers more than 600 fabulous recipes, along with comprehensive information on vegetarian diet and nutrition. It's the definitive guide for vegetarians as well as an inspiration to all cooks who want fresh new ideas and great taste. Forget about labels--this is the vegetarian cookbook that everyone will love!

"The new edition of the Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook beautifully updates this classic. The recipes are practical and sensitive to the seasons."
--Deborah Madison, author of Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone

"Vegetarian Times has long been a respected presence in the world of vegetarian cooking. This impressive collection of innovative recipes ranging from homestyle to elegant will be a valuable guide to new cooks and a repertoire-refresher for the experienced cook."
--David Hirsch, Moosewood Restaurant

"From ethnic twists galore to healthy, vegetarian versions of standard dishes, and with many more recipes than it had the first time around, this new edition of the Vegetarian Times Cookbook earns the designation 'complete.' Classic subjects (main courses, baking) are joined by new chapters addressing real-world vegetarian challenges: meals that are kid-friendly, what to fix at the holidays, and more. Soy in all its forms (tofu, tempeh, 'soysage,' etc.) is given new prominence, too. With both vegan and lacto-ovo offerings, the book will please eaters, vegetarian or not, ready for fresh, interesting food. It's a cookbook likely to make many happy trips from your bookshelf to your prep counter."
--Crescent Dragonwagon, author of Passionate Vegetarian

"This book has a wealth of contemporary vegetable-based recipes, from quick and flavorful meal ideas to recipes you'll want to pull out for an elegant dinner party. Drawing influences from around the globe, the Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook features the exotic as well as vegetarian variations on comforting favorites. Lots of inspired cooking will come from this book. The Vegetarian Times Complete Cookbook will be a great resource for both the novice and the experienced cook alike."
--Eric Tucker, Millennium Restaurant

Summary: Average
Comment: The recipes in this book are average tasting and none of them have been worth making twice. A lot of the recipes use soy products and meat substitutes - which I don't like.



Customer Rating: Average rating of 2/5Average rating of 2/5Average rating of 2/5Average rating of 2/5Average rating of 2/5
Summary: Uninspiring and bland
Comment: Recipes are either too bland or filled with way too many ingredients and steps. Also, there are only 16 photographs -- it's a chore to read through all the recipes to find one to try, and then when you try it, it's too complicated and doesn't pack much punch for your efforts. I much prefer lots of beautiful photos to choose from and to be inspired from. I just don't have hours to pore over a cookbook with no illustrations and recipes that are twice as long as they should be!

Summary: I expected...
Comment: ...this cookbook to be a bit larger in size and full of color photos. It was more like a hardback novel. That is what disappointed me. The recipes are great though, and I've already started using recipes from the book!

Summary: Vegetarian Cookbook
Comment: This cookbook has many very tasty recipes and it also has information about the things that you need to eat in order to be healthy, depending on age and health. I am very pleased with it. The only thing that I wish that it had are more pictures of the finished products.

Summary: expected more from it
Comment: This cookbook is pretty weak in terms of flavor...I noted that I was constantly substituting and adding ingredients to try and jazz up bland recipes. The recipes definitely lack oomph...if you are looking for an easy to follow cookbook and you don't mind sacrificing flavor for time saving, then tis is the cookbook for you. If you are a more experienced cook or you expect delicious results, I would not get this one.
