Best-Selling vegetarian cookbook destined to become a classic.

Everyone knows they should eat more vegetables and grains, but that prospect can be intimidating with recipes that are often too complicated for everyday meals or lacking in fresh appeal or flavor. For the first time ever, the test kitchen has devoted its considerable resources to creating a vegetarian cookbook for the way we want to eat today. The Complete Vegetarian Cookbook is a wide-ranging collection of boldly flavorful vegetarian recipes covering hearty vegetable mains, rice and grains, beans and soy as well as soups, appetizers, snacks, and salads.

More than 300 recipes are fast (start to finish in 45 minutes or less), 500 are gluten-free, and 250 are vegan and are all highlighted with icons on the pages. The book contains stunning color photography throughout that shows the appeal of these veggie-packed dishes. In addition, almost 500 color photos illustrate vegetable prep and tricky techniques as well as key steps within recipes.

Information overload! This was a huge book (they advertise 700 recipes on the front cover) and was chock-full of information but I found it overwhelming. As well as the recipe, they also gave explanations of why the recipes work and how they came up with them. Nice pictures for most of the recipes. Many of the recipes were vegan and/or gluten free.

This is a solid vegetarian cookbook, but I'm disappointed. I expected more from America's Test Kitchen. They do not define vegetarian or vegan for those new to vegetarian cooking. Many of the recipes are repeats from prior books, compiled now in one vegetarian volume. In the introduction they say that they will tell you when an easy substitution can be made to make the dish vegan, but I found those sections to be strangely absent when I actually got to the recipes. There is an excessive amount of information and substitutions listed for gluten free items, but none for dairy or egg issues. Sadly disappointing for a cookbook I was so excited to read.

Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything is far more complete than America's Test Kitchen's "Complete" Vegetarian Cookbook.
