By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Nov. 7 2008
Format: Paperback
I am always looking for great vegetarian ideas. So many of the cookbooks that I've read are filled with dozens of ways to cook tofu but it's my experience that if you don't like tofu you just can't disguise it. I have a non-vegetarian family who is willing to eat my vegetarian meals so long as they taste good and they don't contain tofu. Hence, my never ending search.

I was pleasantly surprised by The Vegetarian Lunchbasket. First off, it has over 225 recipes. Many contain tofu but there's also a lot of variety. There are plenty of snacks and full meals that I can serve and no one feels cheated or hungry afterwards.

Often it seems that vegetarian cooking is synonymous with a good deal of preparation time. That's great when I think about meals in advance but far too often life catches up to me and I need to make something quick. Here again, The Vegetarian Lunchbasket provides recipes that I can throw together from ingredients I already have stocked and put something healthy and tasty on the table. I particularly liked the lunch menu items.

A vegetarian for over twenty years and mother of three children, Linda Haynes has lots of experience in preparing vegetarian lunches. She shares her expertise in The Vegetarian Lunchbasket, a collection of over 225 mouth-watering recipes. Her book was first published in 1990, and updated in 1994 and 1999 to reflect changes in nutritional information and availability of products. Haynes developed most of her recipes through experimentation. That enables her to advise readers which ingredients may be replaced with substitutes to accommodate different tastes and budgets. She also shares stories of her experiences, like learning that there is a difference between baking yeast and brewer's yeast when it comes to making bread. At all times, she emphasizes the practical, both in ingredients and techniques. The first chapter provides an amazing variety of recipes for breads and sandwich wrappers. A simple one is lightly steamed cabbage leaves. The next chapter is full of even more suggestions for fillings and spreads. Many of the soups and thermos foods are designed to be made the night before, to provide a delicious evening meal, with leftovers heated for the next day's lunches. The salad and salad dressing recipes allow you to leave wilted lettuce drenched in runny dressing behind forever. Main dishes like "Tofu Telephones" or "Somewhat Knishes" also work well for a meal the night before with leftovers going into the next day's lunch boxes or on a family picnic. The condiments and snacks chapter includes items like nut milk and yogurt chips (both incredibly simple to make!). As does most writers of cookbooks, Haynes ends with a chapter on desserts.Read more ›

I really like "the Vegetarian Lunchbasket" because it is full of easy to make recipes that one can afford with even extremely limited funds. Boston Brown Bread was fun to make, and absolutely delicious. There are many bread recipes and ideas of how to make the bread appealing to children utilizing ingenuity. My favorite part of this book however is the Chapter 2: Fillings and Spreads. I find myself frequently eating cheese sandwiches for breakfast, lunch and dinner and this book is helping me branch out. Peanut-Yeast Spread is pretty tasty, as is Tofu Salad. I look forward to trying the others like Tofu-nut spread, Sesame-Avocado Spread-and Vegnut Spread. There are many other spreads. I also like the fact that these recipes don't make a huge amount. It is perfect for creating meals for one person. Also, there are good recipes for meatless gravies in here, like Nut gravy, and Dal Gravy to name a few. It's a great resource.
