View Full Version : Vegetarians: Recommend an easy (one-dish?) cookbook?

12-04-2006, 05:45 AM
I'd like to get a gift for a vegetarian who lives alone and doesn't cook much (I think she lives on toast and cheese pizza :rolleyes: ). Can anyone recommend a book of easy recipes, with few ingredients and steps? She likes to read the Moosewood books, but I think their recipes have "too much stuff" in them to actually make. One-pot/pan is probably all she'd be willing to go for.... Does such a book exist? I'm looking on Amazon, but I trust you guys more. ;)

There are lots of quick and easy vegetarian books.
These are 4 that I use all the time.

The PDQ (Pretty Darn Quick) Vegetarian Cookbook by Donna Klein
The cover of this book says "No chopping, peeling, slicing, coring, seeding, whipping or blending required"

Student's Vegetarian Cookbook by Carole Raymond

Munchie Madness Vegetarian Meals for Teens by Dorothy Bates

The Vegetarian 5 Ingredient Gourmet by Nava Atlas

Also there is another book by Nava Atlas that is quick and simple but I can't remember the exact title. Something about Cooking for the family.
