The Reluctant Vegetarian Cookbook

( 7 )

Overview

"Who in their right minds would ever want to be a vegetarian?" Sharalyn Pliler asked just months before she-accidentally-became one. A few days into a camping trip in the woods, she was amazed to experience that instead of getting weaker without meat, just the opposite happened-she felt more energetic, lighter and more clear-headed, needing to eat less than before while enjoying food even more, as if her taste buds had come alive. Reluctant to become a vegetarian but unable to argue with definitive direct experience, she had no choice but to ...

Overview

"Who in their right minds would ever want to be a vegetarian?" Sharalyn Pliler asked just months before she-accidentally-became one. A few days into a camping trip in the woods, she was amazed to experience that instead of getting weaker without meat, just the opposite happened-she felt more energetic, lighter and more clear-headed, needing to eat less than before while enjoying food even more, as if her taste buds had come alive. Reluctant to become a vegetarian but unable to argue with definitive direct experience, she had no choice but to begin the transition from familiar meat cookery to the unknown world of vegetarianism. Not many cookbooks are page-turners but with her light-hearted style, down-home sense of humor and master's level writing skills, readers are carried effortlessly as she tells her story of awakening to the pleasures and techniques of vegetarianism. Once a cook in a vegetarian university kitchen, now with three decades of vegetarian experience, she seems to anticipate every question.

    A cookbook that actually makes me want to fix a nutritious meal - Vegetarian Style! Practical in every way, easy to use, a gem for my kitchen library! My copy is already well-used and appreciated.

    Sharalyn Pliler's 'Reluctant Vegetarian Cookbook' is unique because she provides over 50 pages of very readable, useful information on why and how to be a vegetarian. No lecture - just interesting, practical information. I especially appreciate the references to whether a food provides an acid/alkaline balance. This will be a favorite gift to share with others.

    Most cookbooks are boring--this one isn't.

    I didn't know cooking could be fun until I became a vegetarian and started trying different recipes, and I have not liked most vegetarian cookbooks because they are preachy and use weird ingredients I never heard of. This book is more like I'm chatting with a friend or my aunt, and it answers my questions. Besides having a good story it's got really good recipes that taste like meat. Whoever gave it one star must be prejudice, for it's become my favorite cookbook.

    funny and helpful

    I'm a fairly experienced cook but trying to cook vegetarian was new to me. The author made it simple to make the change. Besides the humor, I especially liked the tips and how-tos, the mix-and-match charts, and the herb and spice chart is the best I've ever seen.
