This is a terrific cookbook. I bought it because even though I am not a vegetarian I am trying to eat more veggies and have more vegetarian meals each week. Everything I have made has been very tasty and easy to make, and has been really well received by my family.
I am really enjoying the terrific, tasty, savory recipes.

I bought this cookbook after borrowing it from the local library. After renewing it multiple times I figured that I had better just buy it! I find that it is one of my more used cookbooks and therefore more likely to be sitting out on the table rather than on the bookshelf. I didn't give it five stars since there were a couple flops, but the majority of the recipes are good and easy to make. I haven't regretted my purchase.

I don't claim to be a chef, but I was excited at the prospect of having a good, basic, stand-by vegan recipe book to help me on the road to consuming less meat. When this book arrived I ticked all the things I was eager to try. So far, 3/3 fails! The pumpkin soup with curried pecans was horrible - the amount of curry asked for totally dominated, creating an acrid tasting mess - the polenta with pinto bean pie sounded easy, but I was concerned about using a whole jar of salsa for the base - and I was correct! It was uneatable, and I even used mild salsa. Again, a terribly unbalanced recipe. I tried making the hummus with lime and it, too, was only eatable after I threw in some garlic and quite a bit of salt to balance out the flavours. I also read elsewhere that the secret to silky hummus was frothing up the tahini first and then adding the chickpeas.....so the texture wasn't good, and I disagreed with draining the chickpeas - it was so stiff in the food processor that it would barely move until I added some water.....So, I followed the recipes to the letter, and still had to, with my limited knowledge, tweak them considerably just to be eatable. That's not my idea of good recipes! Just so disappointing!!! Think I'll just look up some recipes online, read the reviews and take my chances, rather than put my faith in a cook book.

This is a basic,plain jane cookbook with everyday recipes. They are good and easy to do and do not call for many unusual ingredients. The lack of colour pictures makes it not as much fun as many cookbooks. There are few meals that are festive or for when company comes. Overall it is a good everyday cookbook

Another Robin Robertson Winner! March 20 2007
By Laura F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Robin Robertson is my all-time favorite vegan cookbook author. That is why I rushed right out and bought Quick-Fix Vegetarian. I have already read through the whole cookbook and made several recipes.

Robin's meals are always innovative and delicious, but these recipes have another advantage - they are quick and easy to make. If you love to eat wonderful meals, but don't like to spend hours in the kitchen this book is for you. For example, I made the Polenta and Pinto Bean Pie, it literally took 15 minutes to put together. The Udon Noodles and Baby Bok Choy with Creamy Tahini Sauce was awesome, and took all of 20 minutes to put together. And if you like soup and sandwiches for lunch or dinner, most of them are done in a snap, as are the main-dish salads. There's even a chapter on make-ahead meals that assemble quickly and then get popped in the oven when needed.

For the working person, or just for someone who loves to cook and eat fantastic vegan food without all the fuss and muss, Quick-Fix Vegetarian is the cookbook to own.

Little work, lots of flavor Nov. 22 2007
By Magda S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Though this book is all over the map (slow-cooker recipes, casseroles, etc.)--are these recipes that are on the table start to finish in 30 minutes, or is hands-on time 30 minutes? There are some in each category. Still, I give this book 5 stars because everything I've made is truly easy and absolutely delicious. The recipes work as stated; no guesswork or tweaking. Robin is friendly, helpful, and informative as an author and cook, and I look forward to making lots more of these tasty and healthy recipes.

Great for Veg or Omnivores on a tight budget alike! Oct. 8 2009
By C. L. Greer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book when I first switched over to vegetarianism in December of 2007. I had done a little research but not much, this book got me through the first month without a problem! I still do eat dairy, however little since I am lactose intolerant, so I find that vegan cookbooks work the best for me. I still go to this cookbook at least once a week to look up little recipes, or even ideas for a different meal I want to make. My pages are torn, covered in food stains and have dog-ears all over the place! Highly recommended for ANYONE, not just vegetarians or vegans. A lot of the meals in this cookbook are good for those who are cooking on a tight budget! I also recommend this to omnivores because it's such a great and easy way to look out of a that "normal" realm of foods that the average person eats. There are bases for meals in here that I grew up having no idea existed!

Delicious, Healthy and Fast Vegan Food! Aug. 21 2007
By mosdefjess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a full time student as well as a full time worker, and after a long day I just don't feel like cooking. The back of this book reads, "vegetarian dishes that can be prepared in less time than it takes to have a pizza delivered," and it is not a lie. I've already made several recipes out of this book, including one for a Quinoa salad that converted me into a Quinoa lover. From Basic Recipes (mushroom gravy, pie crust, etc) to appetizers, entrees and desserts, Robin Robertson makes it easy to never order take-out again.
