I love this book! Usually all the vegetarian cookbooks I see have no pictures or really gross recipes that I'll never eat. This one shows pictures of the ingredients, how to cook tofu, and pictures of all the recipes! The recipes are actually really good too. So far I made edamame dumplings and a protein smoothie and both were very delicious! This is probably the best vegetarian cookbook I've seen so far.

This seems to be a good book. As the title indicates, this book is for vegetarians and they are very liberal in their uses of eggs and dairy in their recipes. Therefore, as someone who leans more vegan than vegetarian, I would warn vegans and strict vegetarians that this is a good resource, but most the recipes contain some sort of animal product (including honey). Thankfully, though, the authors admit to this and highlight recipes that stand on their own as vegan. There are a good variety of recipes here and I always appreciate that the "Way to"'s series includes clear instructions on how to prepare specific ingredients as well as information about them along with the recipes. Overall, a decent cookbook, worth your time if you want more information on how to prepare meals that are plant-based, but most likely not the most vibrant or helpful book you will ever buy.Was this review helpful?

It's a good looking book that has lots of pictures, good layout, etc. However, I found a number of the recipes a bit too fussy for me with too many ingredients that I won't use again. This is a common complaint I have about a lot of cookbooks, including those from Cooking Light. It didn't have a lot of "staple" recipes that I think would come in handy for a beginner cook and beginner vegetarian. In the end, I gave the book to a coworker and maybe she can put it to use.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
