A celebrated vegetarian provides her most bountiful cookbook yet, including more than two hundred tempting, easy-to-prepare recipes for such dishes as Winter Lasagna, Arugula Salad with Spinach and Parmesan, and Tomato Salsa with Chili. Reprint.
So for vegetarians like myself, who just plain don't like the idea of meat - the texture, the taste, the heaviness - it's not the best. I averaged my score out to 3 stars, but really it's not for you if you want what the average vegetarian palate gets to experience more often than the carnivore's: an international and interesting taste selection. Try "Linda McCartney's World of Vegetarian Cooking" to achieve that effect.
"Linda's Kitchen" is, however, almost certainly for you if you're vegetarian for other reasons and want to regain that meaty heartiness in the kitchen - minus the meat itself. It is also for a more adventurous chef who enjoys using varied ingredients. You'll be able to find these ingredients at most grocery stores, but she does tend to use quite a bit.
