Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Lentil soup with potatoes and chard

    • Nancith on December 05, 2017

      This was a homey, comforting, soup with deep, mellow flavors, and really hit the spot on a cold night. Very filling with just bread and cheese as accompaniments. Next time, I may just cook the chopped chard in the soup pot in the last 10 minutes of cooking, rather than cook it alone & add to soup. Seems like an unnecessary extra step.

  • Sweet potato and pea salad

    • Nancith on June 25, 2014

      Nice change from regular potato salad. Make certain to use smaller sweet potatoes since it is challenging to boil a large sweet potato evenly, as I discovered. I added a few red-skinned potatoes which provided a textural contrast, although not as flavorful as the sweets.

  • Tuscan summer pasta salad

  • Soy Stroganoff

    • krobbins426 on November 18, 2012

      Could maybe use a touch of soy sauce for a bit more umami, but overall a good dinner. Serving size must be intended to be very large, there was much more than 4 servings.

  • Vegetable tagine

    • Nancith on May 10, 2018

      We really liked this dish. Spicy, but in a warm, mellow way--tangy & almost sweet-sour from the lemon & raisins. I realized as we were eating that the ginger had unfortunately been forgotten, so will have to remember it next time! Hubby does not like olives, so they were not cooked in the tagine but just thrown into my portion, which added another level of flavor. Great over Israeli couscous.

  • Creamy mashed potatoes with fresh chives

    • Nancith on May 05, 2016

      Chives from the garden are a nice addition to these mashed potatoes. I used buttermilk since it was on hand, which added a nice tang.

  • Rum-kissed sweet potato sauté with pecans and cranberries

    • Nancith on January 08, 2018

      Easy sweet potatoes with a bit of a twist: a bit of rum & dried cranberries. A nice change from roasted sweets, and makes an attractive presentation as well. Didn't use the full amount of rum, but next time I will, plus maybe use a bit more allspice than called for.

  • Caraway cabbage and noodles

    • Nancith on September 11, 2017

      I liked the idea of this recipe, but would have preferred a higher ratio of cabbage to noodles. The impact of the cabbage, as well as the suggested amount of optional sour cream, was underwhelming. Increasing both would go a long way to improve this dish.

  • Millet-cauliflower "mashed potatoes"

    • Nancith on May 27, 2018

      A nice alternative to mashed potatoes, although the finished dish was a bit glue-y texturally speaking. Perhaps adding a bit more liquid would have helped.

Publishers Text

The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook is for all those who say, I could never go vegetarian. I'm a meat-and-potatoes person. But eating vegetarian does not have to mean giving up hearty, filling food. With more and more people cutting down on or eliminating meat, vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike need a source for meatless meals that are as flavorful as their meaty counterparts. With that in mind, Robin Robertson has developed 275 recipes for mouthwatering, soul-satisfying dishes that feed the hunger without the meat.

The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook will change the way people think about vegetarian food, a cuisine not usually associated with indulgence. Everything is comfortingly familiar: Mushroom Barley Soup, German Hot Potato Salad, Chili con Frijoles, Layered Vegetable Lasagna, Broiled Eggplant Teriyaki, Shepherd's Vegetable Pie, and much more. Roasts, burgers, steaks, stews, meat loaves--they're all here, and they're all delicious and all healthy. There are also plenty of fun and funky appetizers; substantial salads and sandwiches; versatile sauces, marinades, and salsas; and rich, homey desserts.
