Winner of the 1995 James Beard Award for Best Vegetarian Cookbook andlt;BRandgt; 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. andlt;Iandgt;Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Homeandlt;/Iandgt; 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. andlt;BRandgt; 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. andlt;BRandgt; 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 andlt;Iandgt;Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Homeandlt;/Iandgt; the essential companion to everyday cooking.

Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home has been our family's "go-to" cookbook for the past 15 years. The recipes are absolutely delicious, vegetarian/vegan, healthy, and pretty easy if you plan ahead. The soup recipes are worth their weight in gold.

Wow! This is one of our favorite "family" cookbooks, for several reasons. First of all, it is geared toward making dinner in a hurry with what you have on hand. Many recipes can be made in under 30 minutes--that's faster than ordering takeout! Most recipes include menu ideas. Moreover, the recipes are highly adaptable: For instance, they have a casserole made of yams, black-eyed peas and kale, but we have substituted any yellow vegetable, any green vegetable and any mild bean. And of course, you can enjoy the pasta sauces on anything: The artichoke sauce plus quinoa and chopped veggies makes a great cold salad.

For the most part, these are quick family meals, but many work well for entertaining in a hurry. The recipes are simple and foolproof. This is an excellent first cookbook for beginners, and a great standby for experienced cooks who would like to cook more simply and healthfully.
