Delia's Vegetarian Collection: Over 250 Recipes Reviews
Unfortunately this was less a vegetarian cook book than a book of vegetable recipes. Most of these dishes seemed more like they were designed to be side dishes rather than a main course. The recipes seemed to mostly be various gratins and souffles, neither of which give me the ooh-ahs. A disappointing book.
Tonight (4/4/08) I made the Stir-fried Tofu with Oyster Mushrooms. This is a delicious, quick and incredibly easy meal, and I substituted a pack of mixed dried porcini, oyster and shitake mushrooms (from Asda) for fresh oyster mushrooms. I soaked them in boiling water with some tamari sauce. Lovely! The combo of the mushrooms, pak choi, spring onion, ginger, and hoi sin sauce was really flavoursome and this beats a take-away any day.This is one of Delia's greats, complete with beautiful photographs - have made quite a few of the other recipes including Spiced Chickpea Cakes with Red Onion and Coriander Salad - really tasty! Other good ones include Vegetarian Pad Thai Noodles (lovely and fresh), Roasted Tomato Soup with a Puree of Basil and Olive Croutons (gorgeous and warming) - and for parties - Caramelised Balsamic and Red Onion Tarts with Goat's Cheese - something special.
This was a thoughtful gift several years ago which I had never really read. It has taken me a while as coffee table format cookbooks don't make the best bedtime reading. As I am trying to prune possessions, and as I have a history of disasters with Delia Smith recipes (yes, really), I had imagined I would read it and then donate it to a charity shop sharpish. However, I think it may have earned a space on a permanent shelf.Initially I wasn't overwhelmed - I find it a bit naff to find recipes clearly written for imperial measures and then converted into odd metric. Delia is clearly not very veggie savvy - not only are there a lot of cheese and egg recipes (although there's a list at the back of vegan recipes) but a lot of the cheeses she suggests using are not vegetarian! She also refers to 'vegetarian gelatine' in recipes which I find rather odd and in the method she shortens it further to just 'gelatine' - this makes me wonder if she's really made the recipes with agar agar or whatever or is just assuming you can...I did like the way she tells you up front in many recipes what kind of dish you'll need (I think there were some odd omissions here) The method is written in quite a chatty style, as if she was talking you through it. I am not an expert on Delia Smith (owing to the failures) but her style was recognisable. A lot of toasting nuts, a fondness for passion fruit... but it did all sound very nice. The photographs were beautiful but I always wonder why there are photos of ingredients when not every recipe is depicted. I feel prepared to risk more disasters....
One of THE best recepies for vegetarians
What can I say?It's Delian, so the recipes work well.She's not very innovative, and the book is probably a bit dated now, but I still refer back to it once in a while.
a great vegetarian classic that is generally reliable for good food.
easy to follow, always works
Just brilliant if you like vegetarian food!
