Book Description

April 19 1994
Winner of the 1995 James Beard Award for Best Vegetarian Cookbook
Although many people think that cooking without meat means spending more time in the kitchen, the cooks at the world-renowned Moosewood Restaurant know this isn't so. Busy balancing home, work, and other commitments, they've been cooking for family and friends every day of the week for over twenty years. Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home is the result of that experience -- over 150 carefully honed and tested recipes calling for the best ingredients, accompanied by time-saving tips and planning suggestions, add up to a delicious whole-foods cuisine that is versatile and healthful and can be prepared with a minimum of effort.
This book contains dishes full of exciting flavors, sure to please every taste, from savory soups to substantial main-dish salads, from hearty stews to palate-teasing "small dishes." Sauces, salsas and dressings, and a collection of almost-instant desserts turn the simplest meal into an occasion.
Chapters on techniques and menu planning, lists of recipes for special needs, including nondairy and vegan fare and kid-pleasing food, as well as an in-depth guide to stocking the meatless pantry (including a list of recommended convenience foods), make Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home the essential companion to everyday cooking.

Product Description

From Amazon

The Moosewood Collective has had big vegetarian cookbook success with other collections. The main aim of this addition to their list is to offer much-needed help to those who need recipes for speedy preparation. Most take less than 30 minutes preparation. Recipes include stir-fries, salads, sandwiches, bean dips, soups, scones, pancakes and desserts. Almost all are vegan, with dairy products offered only as optional extras, though there is a separate section on fish and eggs. Winner of the 1995 James Beard Award for vegetarian cookbooks.

From Publishers Weekly

Moosewood, the vegetarian culinary collective ("Eighteen heads are better than one for some tasks") responsible for the restaurant of the same name in Ithaca, N.Y., offers an excellent third title to follow the popular Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant and New Recipes from Moosewood Restaurant . This one, unsurprisingly, concentrates on simple, healthful, easily prepared foods, though they are somewhat lighter in emphasis than were suggestions from the past; most dishes can be readied in half an hour or so, and organically grown ingredients are urged. Flavor is emphatically present, and so is an international bent. An Asian frittata, for instance, incorporates vegetables and adds a sauce including soy, rice wine, sesame oil and other Eastern staples, while baked peaches with Marsala is a dessert with an Italian tint. Broiled tofu may lead some diners to gag. However, the majority of the recipes will please non-purists, as well as the hard-core. An especially strong stew chapter offers entries with African, Caribbean, Hungarian, Greek, East Indian, Spanish, Italian and South American origins; chapters on pastas, salads and grains are similarly broad. Each recipe features menu suggestions and information on nutritional components. Author tour.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for those quick dinners Jan. 24 2003
I own most of the Moosewood cookbooks, but I don't use this one nearly as often as I do the earlier books, mostly because the recipes in this one are more limited. Still, there are some great quick vegetarian dishes here that could quickly become favorites. Families especially will appreciate the quick pizza recipes that allow you to choose your "crust": pre-baked shell, French bread, or pita. The Herbed Chevre and Tomato Pizza and the Mushroom and Smoked-Cheese Pizza are both great, although you really don't need a recipe for either. The same is true for the vegetarian antipasto salad - anyone can figure out how to make a salad out of olives, artichoke hearts, beans, roasted red peppers, and cheese. However, sometimes when I want a quick dinner, I can't think on my own. This is when this cookbook comes through.
Some of the more unusual recipes are Curried Fried Rice, Asian Cabbage Slaw, Pasta with Spicy Cauliflower, Sweet Potato Quesadillas, and Fragrant Rice Noodles with Vegetables. Warning: some of these recipes contain fish. Since Moosewood has such an established reputation for vegetarian cuisine, I don't understand why something like Chesapeake Catfish had to be included. As with all of the Moosewood cookbooks, the desserts are competent but unexceptional.
In the back, the authors divide their recipes into lists: non-dairy and vegan dishes; recipes that will allow you to spend more time with your guests; "kid pleasers"; dishes suitable for buffets; and 30 minute meals. This is probably the most thoughtful aspect of the book, and I appreciate the effort. You'll also find a fairly comprehensive "Guide to Ingredients" which not only describes some of the more unusual items but also where you are likely to find them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and Healthy Sept. 16 2003
By gwubina
I own most of Moosewoods books but turn to this one most during the week because the recipes are quicker (less cooking time and/or less prep) than others in the series (say Sunday's at Moosewoods). My personal favorite has to be Curried Tofu and chickpeas. Not only is it quick to prepare, but the final dish is amazingly colorful as well as quite tasty. The entire section on packet cooking is infinitely adaptable. She uses fish in foil packets, but one could do this with tempeh(staying vegetarian) or even with chicken, if there are meat eaters around. I highly recommend this book for people who want to cook more vegetarian food at home, but can't always find the time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only for the adventurous! Oct. 23 2002
Although I love this book I didn't give it a full five stars because A) there are no pictures and B) I felt that the recipes would probably not appeal to everyone.
It is a personal favorite precisely because it is unusual. My family especially loves the African Pineapple Peanut Stew and Chick Pea and Artichoke Heart Stew, but we've enjoyed all of the dishes I've tried so far. There are some recipes that might be more familiar such as Mushroom and Smoked-Cheese Pizza and Curried Fried Rice.
Most of the recipes would fit a vegan diet, but some do include fish, eggs and dairy products. At the back of the book there is a list of nondiary and vegan recipes as well as lists of special dishes for entertaining, kid-pleasers, dishes that sit well and are suitable for a buffet, and 30-minute dishes.
Most of the recipes are fairly quick and easy to prepare. There are a lot of fresh ingredients used, so that could take more time. Be aware that many of the ingredient lists contain things like finely chopped onion, chopped fresh thyme, fresh grated cheese. Unless you are a very quick chopper you will need to buy prepared ingredients or elicit some help in the kitchen to get dinner on the table in less than 45 minutes.
I bought this book with the intention of including more vegetables, fruits and legumes in my diet. I have accomplished that and becuase the recipes are so flavorful we don't miss the meat at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuinely fast and easy. Tasty, too! Dec 16 2003
By A Customer
I bought the "Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant" cookbook a number of years ago and was disappointed with it because the recipes were not consistently good and were often time-consuming or complicated. So I came to this cookbook with a good deal of skepticism. Thus far, however, I've been extremely pleased with it. The recipes are genuinely fast and easy, most of the ingredients are readily available, and the resulting food has been delicious. I've gotten quite a few good ideas from this cookbook and use it often at home. With this cookbook I can make tasty, healthy meals for my family on busy weeknights. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick, Easy, and Satisfying! Jan. 29 2001
One of the best of the vegetarian cookbooks, this has delicious recipes (e.g., "Pasta with Greens and Ricotta"), and clear directions for relatively easy vegetarian fare. There's an emphasis on the "fast and easy," and each recipe has an estimated preparation time, often under half an hour. Sometimes these estimates imply a cook with Olympian speed and efficiency, but with experience, preparation time is reduced. For example, "Field Peas with Kale and Sweet Potatoes" requires boiling potatoes, and sauteing onions, kale, and peas. Total time is a reasonable 25 minutes. A nutritional analysis follows each recipe. Field Peas above has 142 calories, 6.9 G protein, 2.3G fat, 24.5 Carbohydrates, 19mg sodium, and 0 mg cholesterol.
There's no particular low-fat emphasis here: Boiled Polenta with Mushrooms and Cheese" has 15.6 g of fat per 8 oz. Serving, Moosewood Fudge Brownie have 9.3 grams per two-inch brownie, but there are several recipes with under 3 grams of fat per serving.
It's a very comprehensive book, with recipes for soups, quick breads, salads, sauces, main dish salads, grains, beans, pastas, fish, desserts, stews, stir-fries, pizza, and more. The book includes a guide to ingredients, and chapters on techniques, herbs, menu planning, and a list of recipes for kids, parties, vegans, and buffets. Finally, there is a chapter called "Quantities," so that you'll know with utter serenity that it takes 2  cups of florets to get one pound of cauliflower.
For an emphasis on low-fat vegetarian cooking, take a look at the Moosewood Low-Fat Cookbook. Otherwise, this is an excellent cookbook for beginner or expert, and ranks with "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" as one of the best vegetarian cookbooks available.
