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.
