Book Description

June 14 2011 Eatingwell
The American diet is changing for the better as more and more Americans are opting to go vegetarian at least a few times a week. Meatless Mondays, a nonprofit initiative launched in association with Johns Hopkins School of Public Health in 2003 to reduce meat consumption to improve personal health and the health of the planet, has attracted a growing fan base. It has garnered the support of dozens of universities and restaurants, entire cities (San Francisco, CA, and Ghent, Belgium), and celebrities, including Mario Batali, Al Gore, and Gwyneth Paltrow. EatingWell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals reports on the latest science, which shows that eliminating meat even a few times a week can have a host of health benefits, including improved blood pressure, decreased risk of heart disease, lowered cholesterol, and better weight control. Just replacing meat with starchy refined carbs, cream, and cheese may be eating vegetarian but it s not eating healthfully. EatingWell shows you how to plan a well-balanced vegetarian diet full of whole grains, fruits and vegetables, and lean sources of protein like tofu, beans, and eggs. Plus you ll find out why eating less meat is lighter on the environment and your budget. This cookbook solves the problem of how to make a healthy vegetarian meal everyone in the family from steak-lovers to dieters will love. For nearly 20 years, every issue of EatingWell Magazine, whose motto is Where Good Taste Meets Good Health, has featured healthy, satisfying, meatless meals, such as Zesty Wheat Berry Black Bean Chili, Mediterranean Baked Penne, and Tomato-Corn Pie. The best of those recipes can now be found in one place: EatingWell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals. This cookbook dishes up 150 recipes for soups and stews, salads, sandwiches, pasta, and pizza. ere are special tarts, gratins, and other impressive dishes for entertaining and plenty of delicious appetizers, wonderful side dishes, and divine desserts to round out all your menus. And like all the recipes from award-winning EatingWell Magazine, the healthy recipes in this book really work. Most can be prepared in less than 45 minutes and use simple, easy-to-find ingredients. And they have all been tested multiple times by the expert cooks in the EatingWell Test Kitchen. With recipes like these, you ll never miss the meat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delicous & down-to-earth recipes June 16 2011
By Princess Bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
EatingWell Meatless is a beautiful cookbook that really spells out the nutritional aspects of recipes while also making them fairly common and easy to make. The photos are gorgeous, and the recipes aren't overly complicated and have, for the most part, very common ingredients.

The nutritional key is easy to understand symbols for three health-related aspects: Healthy Weight (meaning limited overall calories), High Fiber, and Healthy Heart (limited saturated fats). It makes it simple if you're looking for recipes for a particular diet. The breakdown doesn't stop there however, they also have the full breakdown, plus a "nutritional bonus" which is the vitamins that you'll receive from eating the prepared dish.

I made the Leek & Gruyere Quiche, which was "Healthy Weight" at 244 cal per serving. It was delicious and for a healthy quiche, didn't take longer to make than my own, somewhat less-healthy version. We all enjoyed it. It may be considered healthy weight since 1/8 of the pie was a serving, so portion control has something to do with it.

I'd venture to say that this is a great cookbook for adventurous and healthy foodies, but not specifically geared towards families feeding small children (see Better Homes and Gardens 365 Vegetarian Meals recipes for kid-meals). That's not to say EatingWell doesn't have some family-friendly recipes, because they do, but they incorporate a lot of herbs and flavors that might be too much for children.

My one wish is that they put a seasonal twist on this cookbook. They've got winter-type recipes next to ones with summer veggies. When you're looking for something to make, you've got to root thru recipes that you wouldn't even consider. Who wants to make Tofu Hot Pot in the summer, or a fresh tomato dish in winter?

One final note: This cookbook is visually stunning. The pages are glossy, the photos are lovely and large, and the fonts are small and classy. The fonts may in fact be a bit small for some people, especially when you're cooking and reading at the same time, but it sure does look nice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Go meatless July 20 2011
By wogan - Published on Amazon.com
After reading of the health benefits of avoiding meat, even if it is not for all your meals, this book has some very good tasty recipes to try. Many who have adapted a vegetarian diet have lost excess weight, lowered blood pressure and decreased the risk for diabetes; that alone should encourage, especially with the going `green' movement supporting more vegetarian cooking.

There are 9 pages of evidence why a vegetarian diet is better. Included recipes are; appetizers, salads, soups and stews, sandwiches, wraps and burgers, pizza and pasta, grains and beans, tofu, tempeh and seitan, eggs and dairy, casseroles, tarts and gratins, sides and desserts.
One of the major irritations is the key for the recipes is in the back of the book - why not put it in the front so we can know what we are looking at...healthy weight, high fiber, healthy heart, ready to eat in 45 minutes or less. There are 2 indexes, one dividing recipes into vegan, gluten-free, 30 minutes or less and a regular index
Pictures are included for some of the recipes, but it is sometimes confusing which is which when they are in the front of the recipe section.
Our family favorites have included pickled eggs, fettuccine with creamy mushroom sauce, and cranberry upside down cake.

This is a good book to add to your cookbook collection especially, of course, if you wish to have some vegetarian recipes that your family and friends might enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing July 19 2011
By Bobbie J. - Published on Amazon.com
I checked this cookbook out at our library hoping to find a few recipes I could copy and try. Well there where so many recipes in this book that I would love to try, I am going to have to purchase this book. I am not a vegetarian, but would like to add some meatless meals to our weekly meals. These recipes are very easy and most do not require me to purchase some special ingredient. A novice cook would find these recipes easy to follow. I love the quality of this book. The pictures are wonderful and there are helpful notes to help you make the recipes a success.

Because of heart problems I dicided to go meatless at least three times a week. So far my Dr has been very happy with my results.
Most of the meals in the this book are very good and filling. Eating Well has done a very good job with this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cookbook not only for vegetarians Feb. 25 2013
By phoenix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific cookbook that's suitable both for vegetarians and anyone else looking for ways to include more meatless meals into their lifestyle. The recipes are fairly straightforward and have very clear directions. Many recipes have color photos, which I think most cooks appreciate in a cookbook. There are also accompanying notes included in many recipes explaining any less-than-familiar ingredients, as well as notes on how to modify recipes to make it vegan. Having said that, most of the recipes do NOT have strange or unusual ingredients, most can be found in your neighborhood supermarket.

The variety of recipes is very good and addresses different taste palates. The cookbook is divided into sections: grains, beans, salads, pasta, vegetable side dishes, eggs & diary, tofu, etc. You can also search the index by recipe name or ingredient, I think this extremely convenient. Cookbooks that have only a recipe name index are not as useful. There is also nutritional information included with each recipe (calories, fat-percentage, protein, etc.), which many will find helpful. I've made a good number of the recipes and have found that the directions are very well written and clear and even those that don't cook much would be able to execute these recipes without much difficulty. But most importantly, the recipes are very tasty and I've really enjoyed almost everything I've prepared so far.

As the title indicates, most recipes can be prepared fairly quickly (around 30-45 minutes), a few do take a little longer, but cooking times are listed with every recipe. Overall, I think this book is well organized, has great presentation with many color photos and has excellent directions for both novice and experienced cooks. I highly recommend this book to all, even if you're not a vegetarian, this makes a great addition to any cookbook library. I think the problem with some vegetarian cookbooks are that they have strange or expensive ingredients that may not be readily available; or the recipes themselves may seem strange and not appealing. Happily, this cookbook has plenty of familiar recipes such as "black bean quesadilla," "pinto bean salad," "bread & tomato soup," and many others that even meat-eaters would find enjoyable.

Whether you're a vegetarian or not, please consider picking up this book and adding some of its recipes to your regular rotation. I believe you will be pleasantly surprised.
