Editor's Review:

The Moosewood Collective has had big vegetarian cookbook success with other collections. The main aim of this addition to their list is to offer much-needed help to those who need recipes for speedy preparation. Most take less than 30 minutes preparation. Recipes include stir-fries, salads, sandwiches, bean dips, soups, scones, pancakes and desserts. Almost all are vegan, with dairy products offered only as optional extras, though there is a separate section on fish and eggs. Winner of the 1995 James Beard Award for vegetarian cookbooks.

Winner of the 1995 James Beard Award for Best Vegetarian Cookbook

Although many people think that cooking without meat means spending more time in the kitchen, the cooks at the world-renowned Moosewood Restaurant know this isn't so. Busy balancing home, work, and other commitments, they've been cooking for family and friends every day of the week for over twenty years. Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home is the result of that experience -- over 150 carefully honed and tested recipes calling for the best ingredients, accompanied by time-saving tips and planning suggestions, add up to a delicious whole-foods cuisine that is versatile and healthful and can be prepared with a minimum of effort.

This book contains dishes full of exciting flavors, sure to please every taste, from savory soups to substantial main-dish salads, from hearty stews to palate-teasing "small dishes." Sauces, salsas and dressings, and a collection of almost-instant desserts turn the simplest meal into an occasion.

Chapters on techniques and menu planning, lists of recipes for special needs, including nondairy and vegan fare and kid-pleasing food, as well as an in-depth guide to stocking the meatless pantry (including a list of recommended convenience foods), make Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home the essential companion to everyday cooking.

Reader Reviews:

This is my first Moosewood cookbook, but I have many vegetarian cookbooks.

This book is for you if you like basic recipes and/or quick meals, which the name implies. I usually like meals that are a little more gourmet, but this book will do in a pinch on a weeknight or if you have kids.

There are really some delicous recipes in here, and the cook times are reduced by using canned beans, etc.

Most recipes use cheese, which I don't eat. There are also many seafood recipes. If you're not vegan, you'll find most of the recipes right up your alley. It can save you on a weeknight.

The other feature I like, is the index in the back. They organize recipes by the time you have to cook, if you're having company, and/or if you're vegan. That's helpful, so you don't have to leaf through the whole book.I use this one fairly regularly because the recipes are quicker than the other Moosewood cookbooks. The Golden Cheddar soup is a particular favorite, although my husband prefers his soups with MEAT in them. The recipe for teriyaki sauce on grilled fish is delicious with salmon.I am not much of a cook. I like eating well, mostly vegetarian, but don't really enjoy cooking. So if I go to the trouble of following a recipe I want to love my meal. This cookbook has never failed to deliver. All the recipes are great and easy to make. If you love healthy, mostly vegetarian food you will like the recipes in this cookbook! (BTW - I was not as impressed with the Moosewood Low Fat cookbook. The in recipes in that one didn't look as appealing).This was the first cookbook I bought which I actually used extensively, and the only cookbook I own from which I've actually cooked the vast majority of the recipes. It is perfect not only for vegetarians, but anyone just starting out with their own kitchen. The book not only provides a large variety of relatively easy to cook recipes, it also explains (in appendices) what the various cooking terms mean and what the various ingredients are. The range of recipes also serves as a good introduction to just how wide the possibilities of a vegetarian diet are. As the title promises, these are recipes for everyday use, not the ones to bring out to impress the guests on holidays.This is the one cookbook that turned me on to the entire Moosewood Restaurant series. I can make pretty much any recipe in the cookbook without worrying about how it will taste when it's done -- everything tastes terrific! I love the fact that I can just use the index when I've got zucchini in the fridge & I'm not sure what to do with it. One warning though -- you're going to want to double most of the recipes. Leftovers are a blessing. :)
