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

Bonus material includes guidelines for new vegetarians, wider implications of a vegetarian diet, and a slew of handy nutritional charts.
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.
