What Others Are Saying

"It's not just for vegetarians; it's loaded with some new flavor combinations and just plain good food."

Las Vegas Review-Journal

"Move over Moosewood. Simply Vegetarian! is bound to be a strong competitor."


"Recipe after recipe for people who just like good food."

Harvey Steiman, “KCBS Kitchen," KCBS Radio, San Francisco

"Simply Vegetarian! is really outstanding!"

A.M. Los Angeles

"Simply Vegetarian! is practical and helpful, and deserves daily use in anyone's kitchen."

Vegetarian Journal

"Compiled and written by cooking instructor, professional caterer Nancy Mair, Simply Vegetarian! is a collection of vegetarian recipes which all have in common a reasonably brief preparation time (15 to 50 minutes usually), except for a few cases that have a longer cooking time but that allow the chef to accomplish other tasks while the dish is in the oven. From Summer Rice Salad to Stuffed Zucchini, Maple Walnut Pie, Hungarian Noodles and so much more, the dishes offer a wide range of delights and the one-page recipes are laid out in such a manner that ingredients are not listed all at the beginning, but rather each ingredient is listed at the point in preparation in which it is added to the dish, the better to prevent mistakes. A sumptuous and enthusiastically recommended cookbook for busy vegetarians."

The Bookwatch

"Simply Vegetarian! makes you rethink the idea that vegetarian food is blah! Fact of the matter is you don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy this book."

Reno Gazette-Journal

"Simply Vegetarian! does not demand 'health-nut' status of its cooks."
