"Aside from the utter lack of pretension, what we love about this book is the pure focus on making the most of seasonal ingredients by layering in flavor while still keeping things honest and straightforward. We were won over by Susan's suggestion to use chopped olives and oregano to transform a simple dish of pasta and chickpeas into something briny and fragrant; this is just the sort of brilliant but unfussy attention to detail that ensures this combination will make its way into our weekly rotation...We think of The Simply Vegetarian Cookbook as a dear friend whose first language is home cook, but who also happens to be fluent in vegetarian."--Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, Co-founders of Food52
"As an omnivore with vegetarian leanings married to a carnivore, I appreciate Susan Pridmore's straightforward approach to delicious vegetarian fare that can just as easily serve as the main event or be served alongside meat dishes. Her recipes are delightfully simple, but still surprisingly creative, fresh, and full of flavor. Every recipe has a little twist that elevates it above the usual without making it overly complicated to cook or shop for. I especially love how the recipes are divided by cooking time/method so that I don't have to waste time sorting through to find a dish that suits my current situation."--Robin Donovan, Author of The Healthy Make-Ahead Cookbook: Wholesome, Flavorful Freezer Meals the Whole Family Will Enjoy, Campfire Cuisine: Gourmet Recipes for the Great Outdoors, and creator of the blog Two Lazy Gourmets
"For vegetarians and those aspiring to a more plant-based diet, this is a book for cooking fresh, seasonal meals with the bonus of tips for flexitarians to add an animal protein of choice. Cleverly organized by cooking methods instead of ingredients or meal times, it's quick to search and choose from the many enticing recipes. Susan's functional format and simple recipes with fantastic flavor make cooking from her book fast, fun, and always delicious!"--Rosemary Mark, Nutritional and Culinary Consultant

Update: I recently purchased several cookbooks that I like much more than this one. The first one is "Power Plates: 100 Nutritionally Balanced, One-Dish Vegan Meals" by Gena Hamshaw, which is vegan, and offers creative but quick and delicious meal options, which is what I was looking for. The second one is, "Eat: The Little Book of Fast Food" by Nigel Slater, and while it is not vegetarian, it strikes the combo I was looking for of fast/easy + inspired. Even though it is not a vegetarian cookbook, it does have a fair number of vegetarian recipes, and I plan to substitute veg protein products for the meat in the non-veg recipes. I have found both of these cookbooks to be so much better than "The Simply Vegetarian Cookbook".
I found the organization of the book appealing in its simplicity - there are eight chapters, including 'no cook', 'thirty minutes max', 'one pot & skillet', 'sheet pan & baking dish', and 'kitchen staples.' I skipped over the slow cooker section because, well, I don't have one. But she does give conversions for slow cooker recipes to the stove top as well as pressure cooker to stove top. I did't try the adaptations, but I will.
In addition to being fuss-free and fabulous, her recipes are also flexible. At the end of her introduction, Susan writes, "There are enough things to be stressed about in life. Dinner shouldn't be one of them" (pg. xiii.). I agree!
But, my biggest compliment to a cookbook author is: It got me off the couch and into the kitchen! It inspired me to actually cook.
Seriously. I have so many beautiful, even well-written cookbooks, but if they don't inspire me into the kitchen, I just can't rave about them. This book has clearly written recipes, a few beautiful photos of completed dishes, and lots and lots of tips about adding more vegetable-based meals to your table. It's not a cookbook for vegetarians alone. It's a cookbook for everyone who is interested in some fuss-free, fabulous ways to get more vegetable on their plates.
