Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
'Eat your vegetables!' That once dreaded parental directive is given a deliciously new spin by Haedrich (whose Home for the Holidays won a 1993 Julia Child Cookbook Award). Haedrich has devised over 200 appealing starters, entrees, side dishes and desserts to please the confirmed -- or occasional -- vegetarian family. From positively inspired Salad Burritos (kids roll their own) to Sesame Peanut Noodles and savory enchiladas, frittatas, pizzas, gratins, curries and quesadillas, dishes are not only attractive to kids but also flavorful enough for the discriminating adult. Some, like Mom's Squash with Applesauce, have few ingredients and can be quickly put together for family suppers; others, such as multi-step Neoclassical Polenta Lasagna are meant for special occasions. Kids are invited into the kitchen to help, and Haedrich, father of four, understands their food foibles and deals with them humorously (slipping them, say, Deliciously Disguised Mushrooms, sauteed, pureed and tucked into risotto). Haedrich is an expert baker and his recipes for breads, tortillas and cakes are especially notable; 'Food for Thought' sidebars offer valuable tips and advice.
Library Journal
Haedrich (Simple Desserts) says that few of the many vegetarian cookbooks around are 'grounded in the reality of family life,' but his new book should remedy the situation. His four children have grown up on a vegetarian diet, and there are lots of kid-friendly recipes here, as well as advice on feeding a family with different likes and dislikes. Some of the recipes include variations or options for grownups only, and although Haedrich isn't a strict vegetarian, his partner (as he identifies her) is, and she's contributed some vegan recipes and alternatives. Any parents who are committed to a vegetarian diet should be interested in Haedrich's new book. Lemlin, who has written a number of excellent vegetarian cookbooks (including Main-Course Vegetarian Pleasures, LJ 4/15/95), is less concerned with avoiding dairy products, chocolate, and so forth than Haedrich is, but she is no less aware of the time constraints facing busy family cooks. She offers an attractive collection of quick and easy recipes, often with make-ahead suggestions. With its simple but fairly sophisticated recipes, Lemlin's latest should appeal to "sometime" as well as "all the time" vegetarians.
