Sophisticated and stylish vegetarian main course pose the greatest challenge for the busy cook seeking meatless meals. With that in mind, Jeanne Lemlin, the award-winning author of Quick Vegetarian Pleasures, has created 125 recipes for savory vegetarian entrees to suit all occasions. Delicious, healthful, and easy to prepare, the recipes in Main-Course Vegetarian Pleasures--Roasted Vegetables with Polenta, Risotto Primavera, Pumpkin and Corn Chowder, among many others--take vegetarian cooking into that magical realm where style and substance produce genuine pleasure.
Lemlin (Vegetarian Pleasures), winner of a James Beard Cookbook Award, serves up 125 meatless main-course recipes to which speed of preparation is the key. Most of the recipes require only 30 minutes of prep time, and many can be prepared ahead in stages. While arguably asserting that frozen vegetables can be substituted for fresh ``without sacrificing flavor or texture,'' Lemlin also observes, rather sensibly, that if she used only freshly cooked beans rather than canned she would eat fewer beans. She suggests keeping on hand certain non-perishable staples and rotates them in and out of her recipes. Although there are few lightning bursts of imagination and her spicing tends to the minimalist, Lemlin does offer recipes of flavor and heartiness in helping sizes meant to satisfy, which they do. A recipe for Baked Vegetables with Garlic, White Beans and Olives that seems on paper likely to be a bit bland is, on the plate, just right. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
