I have been cooking vegetarian for 20 years and here is a new book to excite me with not only new recipes but easy to prepare, delicious, and healthy recipes. Easy, because they use familiar ingredients and keep them to a minimum. Delicious, because the flavors are intense and exciting - and all without adding any salt! Healthy, because they feature vegetables, fruits, and grains and give all nutritional information for each recipe. Also, I love having a full color picture of every recipe and this book provides that. It was enough for me to browse through the pages to decide that this was a book which was going to enlighten me. I am not disappointed. After trying 5 recipes so far and my husband and I relishing each one of them, I feel I have purchased a book worth its price. There are chapters which use meat and fish, but they are mostly set aside in their own sections from the vegetable and grain dishes so a vegetarian can call this book her own. I reccommend it to everyone and am now purchasing one for my mother as a gift.
