What Others Are Saying

"This brief, simple introduction [to vegetarian cooking] includes strong information on the spiritual beliefs of vegetarianism, as well as easy-to-follow recipes. [It] also offers practical information for cooks, such as the best ways to cook grains and legumes, how to prepare tofu, and different ways to dry roast nuts and seeds. True beginners will appreciate the fact that this primer assumes no previous knowledge or experience with vegetarian cooking."

Publishers Weekly

"Well-conceived and executed introduction to vegetarian fare, with an extra emphasis on nutrition, good taste and appearance. McCord supplements the expected section on recipes with opening, overview type chapters ('An Introduction to Vegetarianism' and 'The Plant Kingdom'), then moves into the practical realm with chapters like 'Foods to Buy and Tools You'll Need' and 'Essential Cooking Techniques.' Readers who may have always been curious about the non-meat lifestyle but otherwise too wary to explore their leanings further will not be disappointed by this beginner's peek."

The Boox Review

"An excellent introduction to the philosophy and basic techniques of vegetarian cooking. Highly recommended for newcomers to the vegetarian lifestyle and for their family and friends who want to cook for them."

Nancy Mair, author of Simply Vegetarian! and The Intimate Vegetarian
