I have bought four copies of this book, including one for myself, and I plan to buy at least two more. I never would have thought of roasting some of the vegetables the author includes, and she even brings in nuts. There are some great granola recipes. I plan to get her book The New Vegetarian Grill as well. I'm not a vegetarian, but these are the most healthy vegetable recipes I have found.
This cookbook is filled with simple and delicious meals. Its amazing how much flavor is brought out by roasting the vegetables. I've only had this book for a few weeks, but I have tried the Stacked Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas, which was excellent and the Winter vegetable Risotto is a tasty meal in itself. I highly reccommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy cooking great meatless meals.
When I first saw the title, I had my doubts. But when I got home and could not think of any exciting vegetable courses to serve my meat-loving husband yet again, I knew that I should try this book out. And, boy, am I glad I did! From soups to sandwiches and main dishes, I have used recipes from this book with success everytime. The food that results from these recipes is truly flavorful. I also appreciate the author's cooking philosophies--an emphasis on natural ingredients and fresh herbs which truly allows for substitutions and improvisation with guaranteed success., Since I can't tell the author directly, I'm telling everyone else--this is a must-have your kitchen shelf.
I bought this book years ago and I gave it to my daughter who is a vegetarian. I am so happy to see it now as a Nook book, I love this cookbook though I am not a vegetarian I love the recipes. I would recommend this to everyone who likes good food.
