Versatile, Easy Recipes
I am not a vegetarian but I do like to incorporate meatless meals a few times a week for health and to save on my food budget. Sometimes getting variety with vegetarian dishes is a challenge so I like this cookbook for the many recipes it offers. I don't care for tofu, but while there are plenty of recipes that include it, there are many that don't so I was able to find several that appealed to me.Was this review helpful?

The salad section was my favorite with some unique offerings such as Hint of Orange Salad, Wild Rice Salad, Asian Salad, and several pasta salads including Pasta With Brussels Sprouts. I made the Spanish Salad with red onion, olives, and hard boiled eggs among other fresh ingredients and will enjoy having it again for lunches. I also found several soups I'd like to try such as broccoli cheddar.
Other recipe categories include appetizers, soups, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts. Color photos are also included which is always a plus. The recipes are easy enough for a novice cook, and ingredients used seem to be those easily found at larger grocery stores.
The recipes aren't vegan so they do include dairy and eggs and one can easily add meat if desired which makes this a good cookbook for anyone, vegetarian or not.
I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited, nor was a positive review required.
