Overview

The health benefits of vegetarianism are well known, but, to many, the art of easily preparing great vegetarian food remains a mystery.

In Totally Vegetarian, Fiore presents 200 recipes that emphasize familiar and readily available ingredients.

Whether you’re cooking for a vegan or a flexitarian, everyone aspiring to eat less meat will savor this totally vegetarian food.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

This all-purpose vegetarian cookbook from the host of the PBS series Delicious TV's Totally Vegetarian offers about 200 accessible recipes-from appetizers (Fried Polenta Squares; Roasted Eggplant Caviar) to "sweet finishes" (Maple-Baked Pears; Nutty Shortbread Cookies; Banana-Chocolate Chip Cake). Fiore's reassuring voice makes even the (somewhat) complicated dishes seem doable; lots of variety in the ingredients and flavors make the book a handy resource for vegetarians in need of daily ideas. Some of those ideas fall into the obvious: of course there are recipes for Lentil Stew and Seared Tofu, and a few too many rely on mock meat and fish products. But there are plenty of innovative dishes along the lines of Black-Eyed Pea and Arugula Salad with Honey Vinaigrette, and Rosemary-Roasted Winter Vegetables for anyone wanting to stay interested in meat-free cuisine-as well as helpful adaptations to inspire vegans, too.

At last! A book that really addresses the needs & stomach of a hungry vegetarian with a big appetite! It's not just about leaving out the meat & serving a plate of veggies! It's a wonderful companion book to the PBS cooking show. Lots of useful but easy to use information & recipes on a variety of vegetarian products like seitan, tempeh & coconut oil. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for easy to make real vegetarian and /or vegan healthy meals.

I purchased this book for a gift. My friend is a vegetarian and I watch Delicious TV with Toni Fiore and her cookbook is just as easy to follow as her TV show.
