    This is a really fantastic recipe book – at the beginning there is great advice and information on getting adequate nutrition in order to have an overall healthy diet, for example Omega 3, calcium, iodine, iron etc, AND the foods that are rich in these nutrients. Also included is a pyramid nutrition guide and advice on getting the best nutrition from a vegetarian diet, plus the different types of vegetarian diets. The fact is, it IS easy enough to get all those nutrients from other sources besides meat.

    At the end of each recipe is advice on the non-vegetarian variation of the recipe, for example adding chicken, fish or beef etc, which basically makes each recipe into two recipes, not one!

    I’m a meat-eater, but have always had an interest in being more vegetarian (I never wished to cut it out completely however). I have a few friends who are vegetarians/vegans, and being an animal-lover I’ve always had an interest in being one myself (80-90% of the time), but never quite got around to it. It always seemed so difficult creating those tasty vegetarian dishes that are better for you, but still have the delicious flavors you love. I knew they existed though! I’d had them plenty of times before, at restaurants, or cooked by vegetarian/vegan friends. The problem was I didn’t seem to be able to do it myself.

    This recipe book has been an enormous help to me, I can tell you – I’ve already tried quite a few of the recipes and they have gone off without a hitch and tasted fantastic. I couldn’t believe it was my own cooking! If, however, on a particular night I feel I would like to add some meat, just for variation, I can do that too!!

    I’m even planning a vegetarian night with some friends to show off my new vegetarian cooking skills, and will definitely be recommending the book to them too. I will be keeping an eye out for any other recipe books from this author. Very highly recommended!!

    I am more than happy with this book!
    Although I am not a true vegetarian, I don’t really like to eat meat. But the thing is when I have to cook for somebody else as well, I am worried that the things I like will not be tasteful or attractive enough. So I noticed that lately I am reading recipes in magazines in search of new ideas.
    This book solves it for me – I can have two versions of the same recipe, I can adapt it to my taste and the taste of others, the recipes are easily read, the ingredients are fresh and interesting, it is also inspiring as a conversation subject during a meal, overall I am completely happy and can’t wait to start cooking!

    I bought this ebook because I was curious to find out how vegetarian recipes for meat eaters are different from those that are not targeting meat-eaters. The solution is quite simple: just exchange part of the vegetarian ingredients with meat. Every recipe includes this option, so if you need to satisfy both vegetarians and meat-eaters, this book can give you many ideas.
