Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Klein (The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen) promises that her recipes require "no chopping, peeling, slicing, coring, seeding, whipping, or blending." Instead, they are based on convenience foods of all types, from the precut vegetables available at salad bars to canned and bottled sauces and condiments. Many of her recipes are vegan and use low-fat products, which will appeal to some cooks but not to others. The somewhat similar Lorna Sass' Short-Cut Vegetarian relies less heavily on prepared products, but Klein's book contains more than twice as many recipes. For most vegetarian collections.

Great vegetarian and vegan recipes. I really like this cookbook because it doesn't use "weird" ingredients, don't get this book for "frou-frou" fancy dishes. Busy cooks will like this book to because you don't have to chop, peel, slice, core, or seed any vegetables. Nutritional analysis is also included. The only thing I don't care for is that there are no photos, but that isn't a big deal.
