vegetarian-meat-and-potatoesThis book is for all 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.

The Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook will change the way people think about vegetarian food and rejoice that comfort food is now healthy as well as soul-satisfyingly delicious. Look at the dishes you can make:

  • Mini Potato Galettes
  • Wild Mushroom Bruschetta
  • Vegetarian Brunswick Stew
  • Barbecued Tempeh
  • Wine-Braised Wheat-Meat Roulades
  • Vegetarian pot Roast
  • Shepherd’s Pie
  • Spaghetti and “Meatballs”

This major new cookbook by former chef and cooking teacher Robin Robertson is the vegetarian cookbook America has been waiting for.

Praise for The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook

“Contrary to what people believe, cooking with natural ingredients doesn’t have to mean dinners of alfalfa sprouts and mashed yeast. The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook is sure to inspire many fabulous meals that are both wholesomely healthy and extravagantly delicious. This cookbook is a winner!” (John Robbins, founder of EarthSave and author of Diet for a New America)

“Robin Robertson has developed a substantial collection of globally inspired vegetarian dishes that will tantalize both vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike. From chowders to potatoes to meaty mushrooms, these recipes are delicious proof that meatless dishes can be delicious, satisfying, and oh-so comforting.” (Paulette Mitchell, author of The 15-Minute Gourmet Vegetarian)

I’ve been cooking evening meals using recipes from “The Vegetarian Meat & Potatoes Cookbook” for over six months. I’ve hardly repeated any recipes and very dish has been a hit with my family. Thank you!

I want to echo the previous writer’s comments: I have been cooking from this book almost every day since I got it, and have yet to hit upon something we don’t like. My 11-year-old daughter (the only meat-eater in the house) is a great fan of traditional shepherd’s pies and the recipe in this book is the first veggie version I have found that she not only will eat but want to eat. I can’t recommend this book enough for “mixed” families (vegetarians and meat-eaters) or for those who want to convert from vegetarian to vegan but find it challenging. And, really, for anyone who just wants good food on the table.
