From Publishers Weekly
Atlas, founder of the popular Web site www.vegkitchen.com, adds to her printed offerings with this latest volume (after The Vegetarian 5-Ingredient Gourmet) aimed at the family at home. Understanding that children as well as adults can be "picky eaters," she provides a range of easy, adaptable vegetarian recipes that encompasses every occasion. In addition, she adds a vegan perspective to the book by suggesting the necessary substitute ingredients needed to provide this dietary alternative. The recipes take the reader through the day, from luscious breakfast smoothies and crunchy granolas, filling soups, light salads and snacks to the more substantial dishes of a main meal. Expanding on the beans and lentils of traditional vegetarian cuisine, she draws on inspiration from regional and international cuisine, from...


Veggie Revolution
Sally Kneidel

Oct 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This account of how one family has explored the connections between food, health, community and the environment may inspire others to look beyond stereotypes to discover the many dimensions of a vegetarian lifestyle. Writer/biologist Sally Kneidel and her college-age daughter, Sara Kate, have compiled more than 100 recipes along with preparation tips, nutritional guidance and advice on how to eat at restaurants and at other people's houses with ease. While much of the health information is now commonly known, the Kneidels' well-reasoned defense of vegetarianism, focusing on humane treatment of animals and the environment, is worth considering. They describe U.S. meat industry policies that affect animals, independent farmers and the environment; and the impact of factory farm practices on health and community...

Book Review
The elegant simplicity and exquisite flavor of Deborah Madison's food make her one of America's leading cooks. In Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, she offers more than great food: her book includes comprehensive information about ingredients and techniques, plus more than 800 recipes. The recipes range from dishes as familiar as Guacamole to those as distinctive as Green Lentils with Roasted Beets and Preserved Lemons, and Cashew Curry. The 124-page chapter titled "Vegetables: The Heart of the Matter" is a virtual book of culinary revelations; you could use it as a manual on buying and preparing vegetables. Madison provides equally inspired recipes and guidance for everything from grains and soy to dairy foods and desserts.

Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker: 200 Recipes for Healthy and Hearty One-Pot Meals That Are Ready When You Are
Robin Robertson
1558322566
January 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Vegetarian cooking instructor Robertson (Vegan Planet) turns her attention to the growing number of slow cooker owners. Starting with Slow Cooker Basics, she takes the user through the ins and outs of the appliance from the size of machine suitable for good results to cooking times and 10 quick tips for cooking success. She also devotes a small section to those vegetarian ingredients, such as seitan, that nonvegetarians may not be familiar with. Branching out from the traditional casseroles and stews so popular in the early days of the slow cooker, she tackles appetizers, soups and desserts as well, using the appliance with great effect to produce vegetable stocks as well as flavorful offerings like the Indian-inspired Curried Cauliflower Soup with Chutney and Cashews as well as Asian-influenced Hot and Sour...


Raw Food/Real World : 100 Recipes to Get the Glow

0060793554
July 1, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description

Top New York chef and restaurateur Matthew Kenney and his partner, Sarma Melngailis, had been thinking of opening a Moroccan restaurant. But one night they were invited to a raw food restaurant -- and it changed their lives. They instead opened Pure Food and Wine, a restaurant devoted to creative, tasty raw food, and it has been drawing rave reviews. Dishes such as Zucchini and Green Zebra Tomato Lasagne, Golden Squash Pasta with Black Summer Truffles, and Dark Chocolate Ganache Tart with Vanilla Cream have given raw food a sexy new appeal.

The decision to go raw was shocking at first for these two ex-carnivorous chefs, but they soon found that preparing and eating raw food made them and their guests feel their physical best. Melngailis noticed a difference almost immediately -- "Light, clean,...

Veteran vegetarian cookbook author Lorna Sass (The New Soy Cookbook) offers 40 healthy vegan recipes, international in inspiration. Rich vegetable-based broths, nuts and nut butters, as well as Asian and Indian spices, add luxurious texture and flavor to these vegan dishes making a diet free of animal products (as well as the unhealthy fats and cholesterols they contain) seem easy.

Hiziki Tapenade is particularly delightful, the Japanese sea vegetable hiziki substituting for anchovies in this traditional Proven‡al spread. Simple vegetable...


Passionate Vegetarian
Dragonwagon Crescent
1563057115
October 2002
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Crescent Dragonwagon shares a wealth of recipes and memories with humor and intelligence in her extraordinary Passionate Vegetarian. She promises that "here you will be well fed, well loved, well tended to, satisfied," and 1,000-plus recipes later, that's exactly what's delivered.

For 18 years Dragonwagon owned and ran a country inn, where she fed glorious food to everyone including vegetarians, diabetics, the lactose intolerant, and people with food allergies. But the real draw here is that this is vegetarian cooking for everyday living. Ingredient lists are always reasonable and understandable; you won't have to search high and low for something esoteric that'll make or break a recipe. This is comfort food that's easy to prepare, and that deprives you of nothing. If you're not a full-time vegetarian, this is the biggest...



Vegan with a Vengeance : Over 150 Delicious, Cheap, Animal-Free Recipes That Rock
Isa Chandra Moskowitz
1569243581
November 9, 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
To appreciate this quirky vegan cookbook, readers must welcome the author's offhand, rambling style. A chatty Brooklynite who hosts her own public access cooking show, she scatters stories about her mother, her friends and her politics among recipes for goodies like Fresh Corn Fritters and Curried Split Pea Soup. In one anecdote, she writes that her mother liked the scones from "one of those overpriced French cafes in Union Square," prompting the author to create Glazed Orange scones in her mother's honor, and the sweet, rich result rivals the average "overpriced café" model. BBQ Pomegranate Tofu is actually baked, not barbecued, but still the tofu is rich and smoky, terrific over rice or packed into heroes. Even better, the vegan iterations of Spanakopita and Seitan-Portobello Stroganoff so closely...

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...

Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers
Jim Scherer
0609609122
Oct 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
For many baby boomers, Moosewood Restaurant is synonymous with vegetarian cooking, thanks to Mollie Katzen's 1977 classic cookbook, which brought the joys of hummus, tofu and other veggie staples to home kitchens. The Ithaca, N.Y., establishment now publishes books in the name of the collective; this is the 11th. By emphasizing ease of preparation and reliance on as few ingredients as possible, the authors must stretch to find new twists on the vegetarian repertoire they've covered previously. They include new dishes such as Indonesian Sweet Potato and Cabbage Soup, and Cranberry Bulghur Pilaf—but it's ultimately familiar fare like Warm French Lentil Salad that is most appealing. The book's only real surprise is a section devoted to fish, the sole animal protein included. Working parents and students will...

The Clueless Vegetarian
Evelyn Raab
1552094979
August 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
This vegetarian cookbook feels like a flashback to a time when vegetarianism was a virtually unknown lifestyle choice. A nutritional pyramid revised for vegetarians is helpful, but advice for vegetarians who wish to face the "challenge" of dining out sounds dire (suggestions include pizza, Indian, Chinese and sticking to salad and bread). In general, not eating meat is presented as problematic and strange, with recipe titles like Seemingly Normal Chocolate Pudding (made with soy milk) and Nearly Normal Shepherd's Pie. The latter, like many of the recipes, feels like a throwback with its filling of vegetables, ketchup, and TVP (texturized vegetable protein). It's not that Gazillion Bean Salad, made with canned beans, and Zucchini and Basil Strata aren't good, but they're '70s classics, not new ideas. A section on...

The Vegan Diet As Chronic Disease Prevention: Evidence Supporting the New Four Food Groups
Kerrie K. Saunders
1590560388
November 2003
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Psychologist and prevention consultant Kerrie K. Saunders posits that America is one of the sickest nations and that many of our diseases can be controlled or eliminated through diet. In The Vegan Diet as Chronic Disease Prevention: Evidence Supporting the New Four Food Groups, she begins with documentation from writings throughout history positing that meat and fat are dietary dangers. The diets of other cultures indicate that four food groups constitute a healthy diet: fruits, grains, vegetables and legumes alone and in combination will provide all the essentials for optimum nutrition. While foods are recommended to improve specific conditions, this is not a recipe or meal plan source but rather a series of essays arguing for the vegan lifestyle. Ample citations are provided to support the theories, and charts...
