Book Review - The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook

Complete Vegetarian Cookbook

I really like this cookbook , not only is it packed full of recipes but it is filled with pages of reference material about vegetarianism, cooking, and a huge directory of ingredients, including vegetables, nuts, fruits, spices, grains, pulses, seeds, herbs and much more.

It really is a LARGE cookbook in size and content at almost 400 pages.

This book is separated into sections:-

The Vegetarian Kitchen
The Recipes
-          Breakfast
-          Soups and Starters
-          Light Meals
-          Main Courses
-          Side Dishes, Sauces and Relishes
-          Salads
-          Cakes, Puddings and Bread
-          Entertaining.

My favourite recipes so far from this book have been:-

Quick Nut Nuggets
Griddled Courgette Quiche with Pine Nuts
Filo Pie with Double Mushrooms and Goats Cheese
Stir Fry Vegetables with Golden Coconut Sauce

I would give this book a good 3 out of 5 Tomatoes as its packed full of great information and very tasty recipes, however I am a slightly more simple cook than some of the ingredients in these recipes and there was not enough puddings involving chocolate!

*I only review cookery books I own and have tried and tested recipes from*
