Product Description

From Amazon

The elegant simplicity and exquisite flavor of Deborah Madison's food make her one of America's leading cooks. In Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, she offers more than great food: her book includes comprehensive information about ingredients and techniques, plus more than 800 recipes. The recipes range from dishes as familiar as Guacamole to those as distinctive as Green Lentils with Roasted Beets and Preserved Lemons, and Cashew Curry. The 124-page chapter titled "Vegetables: The Heart of the Matter" is a virtual book of culinary revelations; you could use it as a manual on buying and preparing vegetables. Madison provides equally inspired recipes and guidance for everything from grains and soy to dairy foods and desserts. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Library Journal

Madison, whose The Greens Cookbook sold more than 300,000 copies, offers recipes that will please even nonvegetarians.

I am not a vegetarian, far from it in fact. So why is it that I use this cookbook more than any other?
Simply put, because it has all the information I've needed as a rookie chef. It has comprehensive details on the huge variety of vegetables, fruits, grains, and beans/legumes available; everything from their history to their appearance, as well as which flavorings best complement them. Attractive hand drawings illustrate the process of preparation in the case of "tricky" foods, such as artichokes.
The recipes are fantastic! Meat and bread is easy to make tasty; vegetables, fruits, and plain grains take some culinary knowledge. All of the recipes I've tried are simple in ingredients and preparation, tasty, AND light in the stomach.
Best of all is her attitude. Unlike some vegetarian authors who follow their diets for dogmatic reasons, she simply eats and makes what tastes good to her. That's why some recipes include butter as an ingredient, and her emphasis on local produce above the "organic" produce that's supposedly so much better.
Based on my experience, this is the single most important cookbook for a budding culinary expert. You will not be disappointed!!

This is the best cookbook I own. I've been cooking since I was 5, and if I had to choose one cookbook to keep on my shelf, it would be Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. Her recipes are delicious, her sauces and dressings divine, and most recipes are doable on a weeknight.
The recipes in this cookbook are much lighter than The Greens Cookbook, which tends to heavy cheese dishes, and more arduous preparation. Ms. Madison often uses cheeses in this book, but usually small amounts - enough to flavor without overwhelming the stomach with fat.
And as someone who keeps the Orthodox fasts, this cookbook is invaluable in my vegan arsenal. Many recipes are vegan, or can easily be made vegan with only minor substitutions and without sacrificing flavor. These dishes also complement simply-prepared meats nicely - such as grilled lamb or steak or chicken.
All in all, a really marvelous book.

I own many cookbooks. But this is the one cookbook I reach for nearly every day. My copy is so worn with use that the cover has completely fallen off. I have not bought another copy, though, because I would lose all the notes I made to the recipes!! I have given a copy to just about everyone I know...
I am not a vegetarian (at least, not anymore; my husband likes meat too much, so I have started eating it again, too). Sometimes I make these recipes strictly vegetarian, but normally I don't. I throw cooked chicken or fish into a curry or boiled sausage into a bean soup... This is a very inspiring cookbook. I rarely follow a recipe blindly, but I always find a good idea. Most of the recipes are fairly easy and quick, allowing them to be made on weeknights.
Some great recipes-just to name a few: Curried Cauliflower and Peas; All-Bean Chili; Vanilla Custard; Yeasted Sugar Cake; Lentil Minestrone; Peppered-Cheese Bread.
Get this cookbook!! Whether you are an experienced cook or a beginner, this is a great text about vegetarian food.

I've been hunting for a good vegetarian cookbook for some time and Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone is it! In addition to terrific recipes, this is also a how-to cookbook. As a former caterer and chef, I do know quite a bit about cooking and found that I still learned and I agreed with her on those things I already knew. Good techniques.

I'm glad the book is hardcover, because I tend to be rough on cookbooks and this will hold up. One suggestion that I do in all my cookbooks is to comment on a recipe after I make it. After all, it's not easy to remember not only if we made something, but if we liked it.

There are already a lot of **** and "delicious" written beside the recipes.

I already cook with a nice variety of vegetables, but this year decided to try any and all vegetables. Madison is my first stop for suggestions on different and interesting ways to cook the veggies. Have been very satisfied with results.

One caveat--she uses more salt than I like, so be careful.

Good day! I bought this book for my girlfriend, Sarah. She's an avid cooker of vegetarian dishes. On the very first recipe she selected, she prepared it but with a bit of difficulty.

First let me say that Sarah knows a decent amount of cooking knowledge. When she began this recipe she had no idea she would be finishing it with her own educated guesses! To clarify, the recipe called for 1 bok choy. She surmised that, had she followed the instructions literally, the dish would have been WAY overbalanced in favor of the bok choy. You see, the recipe should have described the size of the bok choy. For those of you who don't know, Bok Choy comes in sizes large and small. Thankfully, Sarah's expertise in cooking, saved the dish.

Despite what I thought was a good dish, I felt it lacked a little "oomph" in spices, but nevertheless I DID enjoy the dish.

For those new cookers out there, be prepared for recipes that are very simple, almost to the point of not having enough information to properly prepare the dish. It's too bad, as the recipes taste good. Now I'm wishing I had gotten Sarah a better birthday present!
