Atlas devotes a whole chapter to tofu and soy products, including seitan and packaged products like soy "hot dogs" and "sausage." She also has a chapter on "Rudimentary Wraps," which includes recipes for Avocado and Ricotta Soft Tacos, Goat Cheese and Red Pepper Wraps, and the ever popular Black Bean Burrito (spice them with green chiles). Pasta is a quick and easy favorite. Keep jarred sauce on hand and you have the beginnings of Pasta with Triple Red Sauce or Pasta with Olive Sauce. Serve veggie burgers on whole-grain buns with a side of Creamy Coleslaw or Baked Barbecued Tofu and Potato Kebabs for an easy weeknight meal. Or try Asian Sesame-Soy Noodles paired with Broccoli and Tofu in Peanut Sauce.
Every recipe includes a nutritional breakdown including calories, fat, protein, carbohydrates, cholesterol, and sodium. Nearly every recipe has suggestions for what to pair the dish with and on what page to find it. This is an especially handy cookbook for time-crunched families. The food is easy, quick, healthy, and doesn't require great concentration to prepare. --Dana Van Nest

I never intended to become a vegetarian, but going through this book I can plan meals (that I look forward to!) for weeks at a time without meat!
I don't think a book on vegetarian cooking can get a higher compliment :)

Instead, it's a practical and a very helpful guide to preparing a multitude of delicious, simple, and nutritious vegetarian foods. It does make use of dairy products, which is great for me, but many vegetarians don't eat dairy products.
I appreciate the way the book starts with suggestions of the many things to stock in your pantry for simple meals. After a few pages of these the author, Nava Atlas, moves on to discuss weekly planning and includes a set of guide sheets that can be copied and designed to write in using categories of products to stock. Such guide sheets might be handy to look over before going shopping - or to take with you.
The book contains 250 health promoting, simple to prepare, recipes. There are many - from soups to salads, to main dishes. Besides the recipes, the book speaks on such topics as handling beans and other foods that beginners might not be familiar with. And the last chapter has suggestions for handling fruits.
I think I've made a practical choice for my first vegetarian cook book.
Sure, there are quesadillas with refried beans that would seem like a no-brainer. But the author always puts an interesting twist on the dish that I wouldn't have thought of myself. And there are a lot of recipes that I would have NEVER thought of myself.
5 Ingredients is all I can really handle most week days, so this book is PERFECT for me. I have it with me today and I'm going to try the Green chilie and ricotta rice tonight with one of the quesadilla recipes. Yummy!
