Jeanne Lemlin is keenly aware that we're all vegetarians some of the time and that what we crave is delicious food, quick and simple to prepare. In Simple Vegetarian Pleasures, she provides 200 tempting recipes to fulfill your every wish. With her tips for keeping your pantry and refrigerator stocked to simplify meal preparation and her vibrantly flavored recipes, you have the keys to a terrific meal.
Pressed for time? Because you'll already have onions, eggs and cheese on hand, a Caramelized Onion Omelet is a fast and delicious supper. Always skipping breakfast? A pan of Blueberry Oat Muffins will provide you with several days' worth of breakfasts on the run. Expecting guests? Start with an African-inspired Peanut Soup, followed by Potato, Spinach and Feta Cheese Gratin, a main dish that's both hearty and elegant. Finish with a Nantucket Cranberry Cake that you assembled in minutes and baked during dinner; it's easy, fast and fabulous.
Jeanne's many fans already know that the flexibility and range of her recipes encourage you to take advantage of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Her menu suggestions let frazzled cooks move serenely from soup to nuts without that pressed-for-time anxiety. Whether you're vegetarian all the time or only three days a week, a crossover vegetarian, or even a carnivore who enjoys meatless dishes, Jeanne Lemlin has your food right here -- simply delicious and deliciously simple.
Review: It would appear that the idea underlying Simple Vegetarian Pleasures is vegetarian food that doesn't require a great deal of labor to deliver big flavors--"simple" as in "not too much trouble." Lemlin also alludes to the simplicity movement, where simple means cutting back to what's really important, gaining both time and quality of life. If one has actually embraced the simplicity movement and has the time and ambience, it remains unclear why there's so little time available to give to the preparation and eating of food, one of the more important elements of daily life.
Ignoring all the simplicity stuff, however, leaves the cook with a cookbook filled with recipes pulling on the flavors of all corners of the world. Fill your pantry according to the master plan, shop wisely, plan ahead, and have at it. This is vegetarian cooking of a sophisticated kitchen and palate (using "sophisticated" in the title would presumably scare off anyone not inclined to struggle with food). Many of the recipes could fall out of cookbooks of various ethnic origins where a mainly vegetarian diet is the rule rather than the exception.
What this book really helps us do is move beyond the notion of vegetarianism as just so much brown rice, ragg socks, hairy legs, and save the whales. That is, Simple Vegetarian Pleasures moves right to the heart of cuisine, of food with soul, and makes the absence of meat an insignificant thing. It's that simple.
Ultimately, that it is simple, and that it is vegetarian, means a lot less than that it is exceedingly pleasurable. Enjoy these lush recipes. --Schuyler Ingle
