Winner of the 1995 James Beard Award for Best Vegetarian Cookbook
Although many people think that cooking without meat means spending more time in the kitchen, the cooks at the world-renowned Moosewood Restaurant know this isn't so. Busy balancing home, work, and other commitments, they've been cooking for family and friends every day of the week for over twenty years. Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home is the result of that experience—over 150 carefully honed and tested recipes calling for the best ingredients, accompanied by time-saving tips and planning suggestions, add up to a delicious whole-foods cuisine that is versatile and healthful and can be prepared with a minimum of effort.
This book contains dishes full of exciting flavors, sure to please every taste, from savory soups to substantial main-dish salads, from hearty stews to palate-teasing “small dishes.” Sauces, salsas and dressings, and a collection of almost-instant desserts turn the simplest meal into an occasion.
Chapters on techniques and menu planning, lists of recipes for special needs, including nondairy and vegan fare and kid-pleasing food, as well as an in-depth guide to stocking the meatless pantry (including a list of recommended convenience foods), make Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home the essential companion to everyday cooking.

This is my absolute favorite of the 3 Moosewood cookbooks I own. I have made countless dishes from almost every category (save the fish, as I am vegetarian/vegan). The recipes are well-written; ingredient lists are detailed and clear and the instructions are precise and concise. Serving suggestions are often included and nutritional analysis is detailed for each recipe. But MOST IMPORTANTLY, the food is delicious, and healthy. Also, and an important consideration in my life, the recipes are economical to make and do not require trips to far off lands for exotic ingredients! But there is no sacrifice of great flavor. I consider myself a gourmand, of sorts, as does my husband, and these are truly tasty recipes. A co-worker of mine, having seen me bring in my delectable lunches courtesy of this cookbook, finally asked me to lend him the book. I couldn't because (1) it is thumbed through and worn and (2) it must ALWAYS be on my shelf. But because I truly love this book and want to spread the food wealth, I am buying him his own copy this holiday season. Do yourself a favor this special season and buy this book - I can guarantee you it will warm your stomach and your palate.
It's from Moosewood. It's got to be great. The recipes are simple, clear, easy and delicious. If you're interested in vegetarian cooking, this is a great book to have around.
I found "Moosewood Resturant Cooks at Home" to be easy to follow, it uses ingredients that are on hand or easily available, and is timely for busy week nights. They also give menu suggestions and complimentary dishes for each recipe. I highly recomend this book. It is by far the easiest of the Moosewood cookbooks that I own.
I'm interested in low fat, quick meatless cooking - and this is the cookbook I use most often. I've been very pleased with the way the food tastes and how quick it is to prepare. I have many other cookbooks, but in some I use only one recipe. This book has at least 10 recipes I used regularly.
Someone gave this book to us as a gift - was an EXCELLENT gift. Love the recipes. This started us buying the Moosewood cookbooks. We also recommend these: "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" is very informative. Good information. We highly recommend "Rainbow Green"; "The Green Foods"; "The Raw Food Revolution Diet"; and "Raw 50" are very informative books. "Complete Idiot's Guide To Eating Raw" is a good book to start with for learning about raw food. It has good recipes and a simple layout. We also recommend "The Sprouting Book" by Ann Wigmore; "Ani's Raw" by Ani Phyo (but be careful with using all recipes with nuts - you'll gain weight); all Moosewood books (they are not all raw, but have good raw and not raw recipes) "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home" (best simple starter); "Moosewood Restaurant Daily Special"; "Simple Suppers"; "Moosewood Restaurant Celebrates"; "Sundays At Moosewood Restaurant"; and "Moosewood Restaurant Low-Fat Favorites" (although I don't recommend "low-fat" - just use healthy fat - you can see the difference "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth" by Jonny Bowden)
