You’re probably all wondering what I’m doing reviewing the vegetarian book, but I decided to branch out … exit my comfort zone, if you will! When I asked my friend Anna for her favorite vegetarian cookbook, this is the one she gave me. It is very well marked. I tried one of her favorite recipes plus a couple of others that looked like things that my family would eat. I can’t completely vouch for the red beans and rice because my husband added ground beef to it before I could try it, although I can say that it’s a great base for chili! If you’re looking for a way to easily integrate some meatless cuisine in your diet, this is a good place to start.
Recipes tries: Mexican Red Beans and Rice, Vegetable Enchiladas, Orange Poppy Seed Cake
Pros: The recipes are very easy to follow and there’s a good variety of things. It’s not all tofu and bulghur (although there is some of that if it’s your thing!). The orange cake and the enchiladas were amazing .
Cons: There are no pictures, and let’s be honest, there’s not meat! Plus, am I the only one who thinks the title sounds like the title of a romance novel?
