This cookbook offers classic Greek recipes with a vegetarian twist. This 192-page paperback provides a complete collection of unique and flavorful vegetarian recipes that are a healthy alternative to the standard meat dishes. The traditional meatless dishes, such as spanakopita and baklava, are well represented, and this cookbook also contains modified versions of classics such as moussaka and dolmades. While this cookbook does not provide any photos, it does provide a helpful section on Greek ingredients, and an informative herb and spice glossary. The cookbook includes recipes for appetizers, soups, salads, sauces, entrées, side dishes, breads, and sweets, and all recipes include nutrition information. Ms. Polemis, who is originally from Greece, also includes helpful hints and advice in many of the recipes. While testing the recipes, I found that the instructions are easy to follow and understand. This cookbook might not be the best choice for a novice, but it is definitely clear enough for those with some culinary experience. The dishes were very flavorful, using traditional Greek accents and seasonings that are readily available at most local grocery stores. Overall, I recommend this cookbook. It is a wonderful addition to any kitchen, not only for vegetarians, but also for those who would like to try healthy and flavorful alternatives to the standard Greek dishes.Was this review helpful?
