Can anyone recommend a good vegetarian cookbook? I have yet to find one that looks worth buying. Nothing too fancy or frou-frou, but not too simple. I already know how to boil water and peel a potato. But I'm not quite ready to prepare a seven course french culinary masterpiece. I don't mind putting a bit of work into a meal but I don't want to spend all day making it.

i have a really good one for cooking vegetables, whether you use them as side dishes or whatever..its not really a vegetarian cookbook, but a vegetable cookbook, well maybe cause its about vegetables it could be, maybe not cause it doesn't concern itself about proteins or anything...hang on a sec I'll grab it....its called "Perfect Vegetables"...go figure. ISBN 0-936184-69-8, I think, print is small and my glasses are...ummm somewhere

Any and all Moosewood cookbooks! They are fantastic -- I especially like Sundays at Moosewood (which is all adapted international cuisine) and Moosewood New Classics is my other favourite of theirs, though I have about 5 different ones!
Another great one is the Rebar Modern Food cookbook -- Rebar is a Veg restaurant in Victoria, and the recipes are really interesting and different, but mostly not OVERLY complex.

I agree with Miss Ewe! - The Moosewood cookbooks are fantastic, have all sorts of recipes (ranging from fancy to simple) and they're easy to follow and use.

I believe I have a Moosewood soup cookbook which is pretty deadly. I'll have to look it up.

We've got one we can send you, Karen. Also, don't buy The Lovely Bones, and we'll post that to you at the same time.
