Practical and deliciousJul 22, 2011
By Amazon Customer
I much prefer this vegetarian cook book to any of the others I've purchased so far. Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone has a few useful recipes like broth and bread and good info on using vegetables, but most of the recipes take forever to make and really just don't taste that good. Not so with The Vegetarian Bible!
These recipes are a) easy b) delicious and c) fairly healthy. My kids and my husband love the food. The directions are easy to follow and there are hardly any that require "exotic" ingredients. Oh, and they're cheap to make too, which is great for a budget conscious mom like me.
The photography is beautiful too, it makes me want to make everything in this book! I love the way the chapters are organized as well and there is a nice broad sampling of salad, soup, grains, sandwiches, party fare, etc with many different types of cuisines - Asian, Mexican, American, Indian and more.
There is a section at the beginning about the different vegetarian ingredients and how to use them that I found informative and useful. Just bare-bones info with nice little pictures and what you need to know to cook vegetarian.
I really love this book and I hope these people make another one! I definitely recommend it for those just getting into vegetarian food and who don't want to spend 3 hours making something that your kids won't eat. Nothing fancy here, just good home cooking!

Love, love, love this cookbookApr 01, 2013
Within the past year I have bought close to 40 cook books and each and every one of them were disappointing. This is the first cookbook I bought that I liked most of the recipes just by browsing. With over 40 recipes ear marked, I am all set for at least one vegetarian meal each week for close to a year. if I choose to eat leftovers I could spend the whole year eating well @ least once a week. I liked that the recipes called for readily available & few ingedients. The directions are simple and the pictures are very enticing. The size of the book is great and so is the print and quality of paper used. I would definitely recommend this book to family & friends. I hope I won't be disappointed when I try out the recipes.

Straightforward, practical, deliciousDec 16, 2012
While the dishes here may not be the most innovative ones you'll ever try, they are delicious, practical, healthy, inexpensive, and they can be made at the drop of a hat with ingredients that I usually have in my kitchen. I haven't found a single recipe in this book yet that didn't turn out superbly, and I've tried 18 or 20. This book has helped me convince family members that veg food isn't boring or lacking or even weird (all accusations that veg folks have heard before). A lot of the recipes call for brand name items, but I nearly always substitute with whatever brand I have. A great aid in any kitchen - this would also be a great gift for omnivores who want to cut back. I predict that with this book, they'll be amazed at how easy, tasty, healthy, and budget-friendly this diet can be.

Variety, cost efficient ingredients, and clear instructionsAug 18, 2014
By T.C. Owens
Excellent book. I wanted some variety in our diet. Over the years we've eaten more vegetarian meals but I could never find a cookbook that used common ingredients that didn't cost a lot and could be found locally. This book uses easily found items, and, for the most part, the cost of ingredients is reasonable. Some of the recipes require soy or high sodium ingredients, like Seitan, which we can't have, but usually I can work around those issues. This book is far superior to the vegetarian cookbooks I've bought in the past. It has excellent descriptions of the products and recipes. Plus, the book itself is well made. No complaints.
