Perfect for students, but just as valuable for health-, time- and budget-conscious grown-ups, Raymond's updated cookbook offers 142 quick and easy recipes for all kinds of vegetarian delights, including breakfasts, salads, sandwiches, pastas and stirfries. With the knowledge of a nutritionist and the warmth of a mom, Raymond urges her readers to embrace meatless cooking for its ease, its economy and its benefits for both people and the environment. For those new to vegetarianism, she covers techniques for smart shopping and kitchen tricks; for the truly harried, her 10 "No-Time-to-Cook" recipes prove that a decent and healthy meal can be whipped up sooner than you can say "Pizza to go." The recipes draw on various cuisines-there's Greek-Style Scrambled Tofu, Black Bean and Yam Quesadillas, Pad Thai and Pasta Primavera-and are uniformly simple and delicious. Raymond also offers vegan recipes, drinks and desserts. With readily available ingredients, prep times that never exceed 20 minutes (and that are often in the single digits) and directions that rarely call for any appliance more complicated than a blender, this volume should be required reading for any student vegetarian.

The best vegetarian cookbook I have ever laid my hands on for many reasons: (a) nice writing style, (b) best table of contents ever with every single recipe listed under the chapter, (c) all recipes yield 1 or 2 servings, (d) no crazy exotic ingredients, (e) not an over abundance of tofu based recipes, (f) healthy recipes, not lots of can dumping. and the best part is, even though the recipes yield 1 or 2 servings, your not left with like half an onion or half a can of beans, somehow you use 'whole' ingredients. you will not be disappointed with this book.

I think this is great for people that do not have a lot of time to cook or with little money.

My husband and I recently decided to go veg. All of the cookbooks I found had recipes that served 4-6 people, too much for us, even with leftovers. I found this and it's perfect. If the recipe serves 1, I just double it but I never have too much.

This book is designed for one or two servings which makes it wonderful. There's plenty here for vegans too. This is such a great book I had to buy a second copy for my mother.

First, it's so loaded with easy- and quick-to-make recipes that I wish it had existed in late 1960's when I went to Carleton College in Minnesota. Second, there are more recipes in the revised standard version, but the 1st ed. is excellent if you can't get the new one. Third, each step in cooking is clearly yet comprehensively explained. Fourth, the text just gently encouraged me toward more healthful eating. It's like having my own Mother around looking out for the food I eat.

This book is fantastic! All the recipes are easy and delicious, relying on cheap, fresh, and wholesome foods. Raymond's food is easy enough for even a kitchen klutz to prepare, yet interesting enough to keep a confirmed chef and foodie like me coming back for more. I got The Student's Veggie Cookbook as a sophomore in college, and it's been a staple of my kitchen ever since.

This is my favorite vegetarian cookbook. So many vegetarian cookbooks tend to have hard to find ingredients and long, complicated directions. Although simple, the dishes are still fresh, exciting, and full of flavor.

The recipes are very delicious, quick and easy to make. I've actually heard of all the ingredients and can easily purchase them. Even the meat-eaters in the family love these recipes! They have become staples in my diet. Also, there are many vegan recipes as well.

No college student who uses the recipes in this book will need to worry about the 'freshman 15.' I found so many good recipes and tips in this book that I would recommend it to vegetarians, vegans, and anybody who likes healthy food.
