Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wells's (One World Vegetarian Cookbook) latest focuses on small plates that can be mixed and matched to form tapas- or mezze-style meals. Recipes are organized alphabetically for the most part, with Desserts and Drinks in a separate section. She also includes menu suggestions; for instance, she recommends serving an Ecuadorian Casserole with Green Lentils alongside Marinated Cabbage Salad and Gingery Mashed Potato with Yogurt. Icons indicate vegan and vegan-adaptable dishes. VERDICT Vegetarians who like variety will enjoy combining these flavorful dishes, most of which can be made in 40 minutes or fewer.
