Format: Paperback
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.

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.

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!

Format: Paperback
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.

This has been my favourite cookbook for many years. The recipes are laid out simply and clearly, with the amount of time needed to prepare. Best of all, the recipes are healthy and scrumptious. I also like the suggestions for what to serve with each dish. I have bought this cookbook as a gift for a few people.

I've had this book for a month and already it's been worth it. There are so many tasty recipes in here and better yet, they're tasty recipes that don't take a lot of time to cook (some are only like 20 minuts) and are really healthy! As usual, Moosewood comes through.

Format: Paperback
This is so inventive. I really enjoy all of their books, not just for their creativity but for the diversity of recipes. This is really American cooking. A melting pot of all ethnicities are in this book. I especially liked the Garlic Tomato Soup. It was a Portuguese recipe. Not only was the country of origin credited but it was authentic. I made it for some visiting pals & they swore that it could not have been in an American cookbook. Fact is they keep begging for more.
