Product Description

From Library Journal

The original Laurel's Kitchen, now 10 years old, demonstrated that vegetarian food can be nutritionally sound and need not be dreary. It has been enormously influential and remains so, even now when vegetarian and whole foods cooking has joined the mainstream. For this sequel, almost every recipe has been revised to lower fat content or enhance nutrition, and 150 new recipes have been added, along with a long final section on nutrition that is all new. As in the original volume, recipes are excellent. This new version deserves to be as popular as its predecessor. RD

In my eight years of vegetarianism, I find myself turning back to Laurel's Kitchen again and again. It never ceases to amaze me how the deceptively simple recipes create delicious food, time and time again. I suspect that the reviewer who complained of "lackluster recipes" just skimmed through, without bothering to prepare any of them. The strength of this book lies in its minimalist recipes, letting the quality of the ingredients shine through. In this respect Laurel's Kitchen is a welcome relief from the many vegetarian cookbooks which rely extensively on fancy techniques, ingredients, or equipment which you may not have at your fingertips. Not that I'm opposed to gourmet vegetarian cooking; but for day to day, simple, hearty food, I refer to Laurel's Kitchen before anything else in my cookbook library.
Bonus material includes guidelines for new vegetarians, wider implications of a vegetarian diet, and a slew of handy nutritional charts.

This book is an amazing resource for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. I love the way the book it is written - it is written with thought and love and clearly draws upon thousands of hours in the kitchen. The recipes are relatively quick, simple to prepare and highly nutritious. And the book has a very international flavour and includes many classic, staple, vegetarian recipes that come from all parts of the world. The thoroughly researched and comprehensive nutritional guide that is included has been the basis of my diet for the last 17 years. I'm 37, very healthy, and due in part to my whole food vegetarian diet people easily believe that I'm 27. I can't recommend this book highly enough. It is the first book I recommend to anyone who wants to eat a healthy diet whether they are vegetarian or not. I've bought many copies over the years as I keep giving it away to friends, or it simply goes missing and I have to keep replacing it. If I could only have one cook book this would be it.

I first encountered Laurel, Carol et al. in 1985, after reading and being impressed by Diet For A Small Planet but feeling constrained by the narrowness of protein complementarity as it was then understood. I had been told by my doctor to lose the fifty pounds I had gained with my first pregnancy or she wouldn't be around to help me with a second one. A vegetarian friend suggested I try changing the way our family ate. Since I did then and still do love to cook, I was ready and willing to make whatever changes might be necessary. Laurel's Kitchen was a light in the darkness for me. The recipes were fun to make and best of all, they tasted great. My formerly meat and potatoes or nothing Irishman husband took to our new way of eating with real enjoyment. I took great heart from the philosophical musings that began the book and were interspersed with the recipes. When the second edition came out, in 1986, I was fifty pounds lighter and beginning a pregnancy as a well-nourished lacto-ovo vegetarian. My 11 pound son's birth left me two pounds lighter than I had been at his conception. I have gone through 3 copies of the 1986 edition, and have memorized (with our own personal modifications) all our favorite recipes, which have become family classics. I have never regained the weight I lost fourteen years ago and am in my twenty-fifth year of teaching high school history. My husband and our two teen-agers are healthy, slim and energetic. My daughter, at 16, takes a lot of static from well-meaning "friends" about her vegetarian diet, but she remains committed but never censorious of others' eating habits. We are happy with our choice and eternally grateful for the wit, wisdom and just plain good eating to be found in Laurel's Kitchen. As Carol states,"Laurel didn't believe just in cooking had to taste good."

This is THE ultimate vegetarian cookbook. A truly excellent book emphasizing the importance of good nutrition and the importance of the person providing all that nurturing. A feel-good cookbook for all stay-at-home parents!! Excellent recipes and superb nutrition information. Not the best book for a beginner maybe, but a "must have" in any vegetarian kitchen.

This was the very first cookbook I ever bought. I had drifted away from eating meat without even noticing, the first time I ever had to fend for myself in the kitchen. After a couple months of eating eggs and cheese I concluded I had to learn to really be a vegetarian. This book helped me understand the basics of a healthy diet that wasn't just "meatless", it had totally forgotten about meat.
There are some recipes that are just plain nice to know about like the fruit compote from dried fruit, some of the delicious non-yeasted breads, (I'm too distracted to make good yeasted breads without my bread machine), and the various sauces for vegetables. It would be lovely to make everything from scratch like Laural and company did, but I just don't have the wherewithal to spend that much time in the kitchen anymore.
I was vegetarian for 14 years but started eating meat again when pregnant the first time. Now that my children are getting older and able to appreciate foods that are combined, I plan to get out my copy of Laural's Kitchen and use it more. Even if they balk, I'll be adding various side dishes, some of the lovely sauces so I can dress up my servings of vegetables and introduce my kids to more vegetarian dishes. Even while I haven't been using these recipes, I've appreciated the comprehensive nutrient charts as a reference.
