According to a recent survey, 14 million Americans call themselves vegetarians. Of that, only 2 million eat no animal meat whatsoever. The remaining 12 million are "part-time vegetarians" who eat fish, poultry, or red meat on occasion. For this large and growing group, Linda Rosenweig offers a cookbook to satisfy vegetarians and non vegetarians alike.
Rosenweig's experience stems from years developing recipes for Weight Watchers , Prevention , and Good Housekeeping magazines. Her 225 vegetarian recipes in Vegetarian and More! include "Quick Conversions," allowing readers to easily add meat, poultry, or fish to some or all of the recipe. These are especially convenient for "split households," where only a few members are vegetarians. The focus is on simplicity: only common, store-bought ingredients are used, and most of the recipes are ready in less than 45 minutes. The book also features the new Vegetarian Diet Pyramid from the American Dietetic Association. Vegetarian and More! allows those eating less meat, vegetarians, and meat lovers total satisfaction.

Library Journal Review

Rosensweig is a vegetarian; her husband and two daughters are not. She wrote her cookbook for other "split households" like hers, so that the family cook would be able to make one basic dish to satisfy everyone, adding meat or fish or poultry as appropriate for the non-vegetarians. It's a good idea, but the recipes aren't always particularly wonderful (e.g., for Linguine with Lemon Cream Sauce, the sauce made from low-fat lemon yogurt and cornstarch), and some of the "Quick Conversions" consist of nothing more than adding cubed cooked chicken or canned tuna to the basic recipe. For larger vegetarian collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
