Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Twelve years ago, Gelles wrote 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes; this volume is much more approachable than that weighty tome, featuring 100 of the best recipes from the earlier book in a slender hardcover decorated with a mouthwatering photo of snow peas. Yet inside it's not so pretty. Cookbooks should have large, clear text because of the need to read them from a distance while stirring your salsa or adding a dash of dill, but this one's type is too tiny for this reviewer's eyes. The front matter is nothing new, consisting of the usual list of pantry staples and some food definitions. Does the modern vegetarian cook really need balsamic vinegar or soy milk explained? Most of the recipes (Veggie Chili, Black Bean Burritos, Hummus, Noodles with Peanut Sauce) can be found in any vegetarian or comprehensive general cookbook. Recommended only for libraries with huge demand for vegetarian fare.
