Jeanne Lemlin is aware that we're all vegetarians some of the time and that what we crave is delicious food that is quick and simple to prepare. In Simple Vegetarian Pleasures, Lemlin shares her dedicated, relaxed approach to good food with two hundred tempting recipes for flavorful meals.
Here Lemlin shows how a bit of simple planning can help busy people pull together a great tasting, sophisticated vegetarian meal -- with an absolute minimum of fuss. A well-stocked vegetarian pantry is key to making a great dinner, and Lemlin offers lists of what to buy and store, in cabinets, refrigerator, and freezer, to make sure your tasty meal is not only fast but healthy. She provides the tools you need to create wholesome meals, including easy rich vegetable stocks to have on hand, tips on quicky roasting peppers or pitting olives, fast breakfast dishes that let you stay away from overprocessed, high priced commercial cereals. Stovetop dishes, make-ahead casseroles and gratins, and a range of pizzas, quesadillas, sandwiches and vegetarian burgers offer simple solutions for weeknight suppers. Salads and desserts take advantage of seasonal vegetables and fruits and suggested menus let harried home cooks move from soup to nuts, almost effortlessly.
Winning Dishes include:
Chickpea Salad with Fennel, Tomatoes, and Olives Spinach Soup with Couscous and Lemon Garlic Mashed Potatoes Portobello Mushroom and Caramelized Shallot Omelette Nantucket Cranberry Cake
Lemlin (Main-Course Vegetarian Pleasures; Quick Vegetarian Pleasures) adds to her meat-free oeuvre with this unpretentious repertoire of quick-to-prepare vegetarian dishes. Without precisely defining "simple," Lemlin uses her introduction to give suggestions for stocking a pantry and a brief rundown on vegetarian nutrition. Recipes are fairly basic, although special touches enliven Mesclun Salad with Dried Apricots and Spiced Nuts; Beer Pizza (the brew's in the crust) and Coconut Lime Rice. Innovative approaches evidenced in such recipes as Tiny Eggplant Turnovers (thin slices of eggplant folded like ravioli around a goat cheese filling) accompany standards along the lines of Kale, Butternut Squash and White Bean Soup; Black Bean and Red Onion Burgers; and Macaroni and Cheese. Chapters like the one on tofu and tempeh dishes open with useful tips (buy sealed tofu, because the loose variety is a breeding ground for bacteria). The chapter of breakfast recipes and that titled Pizzas, Burgers, Sandwiches, Quesadillas, Etc. brim with good ideas. Lemlin's refreshing, no-nonsense, unproselytizing attitude inspires.
