3.0 out of 5 stars OK starting point for vegetarianism Dec 19 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The book is divided into 3 parts: 1. Protein Complementarity, 2. Living with the Earth in Mind, 3. The Recipes.
The good parts about this book are that EBE really makes a point of emphasizing food combining. Being a vegetarian does NOT mean just leaving meat out of the diet-you have to compensate for the incomplete proteins found in vegetables by food combining. Being that this book is a spin-off of the revolutionary (when it came out) "Diet for a Small Planet", its recipes focus on wholefoods and nutritional value. After having made many, many of the recipes in this book, I can say that they're good "basic" recipes, but not very flavorful. What I have done is make the recipe exactly as specified in the book, and after tasting the food made my own adjustments. In summary, this is a good starting point for vegetarianism that covers a wide variety of recipes, that with personal tweaking, result in tasty, nutritious food.

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a classic for vegetarians (of a certain age...). Recipes have good protein content, and the indices include instructions on how to cook a wide variety of grains and legumes in either a pressure cooker or regular pot. All recipes have been balanced to provide a complete protein. More recent research seems to indicate that it is not as critical as was thought at the time to have complete protein present in each meal, but this remains a very useful guide and reference for vegetarians, one of the backbones of my recipe book collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first vegetarian cookbook Aug. 18 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
A friend gave me this book (the spiral edition) in 1973, and it truly changed my life -- I became a vegetarian immediately. This is where I learned how to cook and eat all kinds of food that I'd never seen before, especially beans. I am not crazy about the "breakfast" recipes, but the breads in this cookbook are great. I have over a hundred cookbooks, and I still make the lasagne with adzuki beans (complicated) and the potato soup (easy). Almost every page in my book is either stained or annotated or both.
The only disadvantage to this cookbook is that many recipes call for dairy products and eggs -- things that I still enjoy after 29 years, but that I am not allowed to eat as often these days!
This is a classic, educational cookbook for vegetarians.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes ... inconvenient packaging March 24 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a great cookbook! The reason I only gave it 4 stars is becaus the cookbook is bound in a regular book format so it is very difficult to place on the counter top or in a recipe hook holder when you cook. The original version was spiral bound which was great! All cookbooks should come spiral bound!!! My two primary cookbooks in the kitchen are this one and More With Less (which incidently is actually spiral bound)!
