    To appreciate this cookbook, which is famous for being hand-lettered and illustrated by the author and covers both the fundamentals and specifics for cooking hearty, earth-crunchy, mostly vegetarian dishes, you have to acknowledge that it is very much a product of its times. Meaning th...

    The first cookbook I ever owned. Actually, I stole it from my mom when I went to college, and the recipies are annotated with her notes from when I was a little kid. I love the dated aspects of the writing, like when Katzen explains what tofu is and how its hard to find, or when she in...

    This cookbook is not without its flaws -- the "ethnic" dishes are frequently repulsive -- but there's some really good, hearty earnest-white-person food up in here. The hummus, pasta sauce, Brazilian black bean soup, refritos, and lasagna recipes are absolute staples. ...

    My mom's copy has been taped back together, set on fire, and covered in too many ingredients to list. That adds to the appeal for me because I know it is something that she has cherished. When I became a vegetarian I thought "oh yes now Moosewood is mine." Then I realized that probably...

    While there are many flaws in this cookbook by 21st century standards, it was a miracle in the mid-70's. I went to college n 1977 and this book changed my eating life forever--so while it lacks alot in the way of spicing complexity that would seem altogether common today, it had vegeta...

    I have not cooked from this old favorite for quite a while but pulled it out to make the Hungarian Mushroom Soup this week and remembered just how much I love Mollie Katzen. A classic. Link to a pretty wonderful bowl of soup: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/20... ...

    I sat down to meal plan one day and ended up reading this book cover to cover. It was a pretty interesting cookbook. I of course knew it would be, having hung out for a decade with interesting cooks who love it. I remember an unschooling advocate using Mollie Katzen as an example of a ...

    Classic, delicious vegetarian recipes, although some are dated because it was published decades ago. ...

    I am not usually a cookbook reader but this one fitted into my collection of miniature books so I decided to give it a go. Not that I am ever likely to produce any of the dishes within its covers for I am not a gourmet chef, just one who likes the easy option and cooks simple things to...

    This is a vegetarian classic and for good reason. The recipes are flavorful, varied, and just plain good. Like the Enchanted Broccoli Forest, this cookbook is hand-written and illustrated, making it an exceptionally charming. Sample recipe below: Mushroom Curry 4 tbsp butter 2 c...

    This is a great collection of vegetarian options and most of the recipes are pretty easy and you can adjust them easily if you want to include your favorite veggies. Some of the recipes are kind of bland, though, so I will tell you the best ones, okay? Spanikopida-hands down, the best...

    I have an original paperback copy of the cookbook from the 1970's. The spine is neatly taped with masking tape and the pages are a bit yellow. I first got the cookbook in college and loved the hippy vibe. Though never a vegetarian or a serious cook, I did make some of the recipes. ...

    For me as a baker at Zomick's it is a good thing to see some of the recipes that are used in this kosher restaurant, which is one of the best known natural food restaurants in New York for some 40 years now. Haven't had a chance to prepare some of their recipes, bur mainly because I pa...

    I've used this cookbook so much it is falling apart. My favorite: Carrot Soup. Unfortunately, I can't use it much anymore as most of the recipes have milk products and I have a husband who is lactose intolerant. Still, I've been able to substitute for a few of them. A great cookbook an...

    heavy on dairy ...

    A classic. ...

    I?m using my mother?s giant old paperback from the 90?s, back when she was new age acid tripping hipster! ...

    This is a nice vegetarian cookbook if you can figure out how to make it work. It has some very appealing recipes in it. It?s heavy on vegetable salads and vegetable entrees, and very heavy on tofu and cheese. Katzen tends to recommend tofu as a substitute for cheese. I?ve tried the...

    I suppose I opened this book with expectations that were too high. Everything I had ever heard about Mollie Katzen and her cookbooks gave the highest praise. I have relied on a few non-Katzen Moosewood cookbooks (Moosewood Sundays, Moosewood New Classics) myself over the past few years...

    I was introduced to the Moosebook Cookbook in the days when I had vegetarian roommates who'd buy the chow if I did the cooking. I was vegetarian by economic circumstance. Since I was on a tight budget, I ended up the house cook, and in those crunchy granola days I baked my own bread an...

    I think that this is my favorite cookbook of all time. My mom had a copy when I was growing up, and even though my family weren't vegetarians, this book was used to a good extent. At some point I became a vegetarian, snd so I used it a good deal more! When I grew up, my aunt bought me ...

    I love this cookbook, as well as really all of their cookbooks. But I think that there are a few things to consider when thinking about using it. If you're looking to cook authentic cuisine from different countries, this book is not really the book to use. Moosewood is more of an inter...

    I am posting this review for Connie, who bought me this book a few years ago and who just joined Goodreads! Anyway, I love this cookbook! The first couple times I tried anything out of this book, I thought to myself, "Wow - that was a lot of chopping." But as I've become more aware ...

    Excellent vegetarian cookbook! I have owned and used this book since it's initial release. It actually made my husband (a meat and potatoes farm boy) appreciate vegetarian meals and we eat meat-free at least once a week. The only downside is that we now know that vegetarian doesn't nec...

    I love the Moosewood cookbook. Even though I am not vegetarian anymore, I find cooking meat daunting - cooking in general really, but meat especially - so I like to use this cookbook. Also, the hadwritten, hand-drawn format feels less threatening than most cookbooks and she has these s...

    Our daughter introduced me to this cookbook when she was a teenager and a vegetarian (she now also will eat chicken & turkey- but won't cook it herself!). I love its simplicity and its outlook on cooking. Have made several recipes. Within the last year, we actually got to the Moose...

    This handprinted cookbook, Moosewood Collective's first of many books, is a pleasure to read --the artwork is whimsical, the printing is lovely, the commentary is joyful, and of course the recipes are wonderful. It's already my 'go to' for dips and spreads, and it makes my Moosewood co...

    Not technically vegan but vegetarian. I know I've read this cookbook before and enjoyed it. The recipes are pretty simple and I like the cutesy, handwritten style of the book. You can tell that a lot of love went into it. There are definitely a bunch of recipes that I plan to try ou...

    For me as a baker at Zomick's it is a good thing to see some of the recipes that are used in this kosher restaurant, which is one of the best known natural food restaurants in New York for some 40 years now. Haven't had a chance to prepare some of their recipes, bur mainly because I pa...

    I've used this cookbook so much it is falling apart. My favorite: Carrot Soup. Unfortunately, I can't use it much anymore as most of the recipes have milk products and I have a husband who is lactose intolerant. Still, I've been able to substitute for a few of them. A great cookbook an...

    This is a nice vegetarian cookbook if you can figure out how to make it work. It has some very appealing recipes in it. It?s heavy on vegetable salads and vegetable entrees, and very heavy on tofu and cheese. Katzen tends to recommend tofu as a substitute for cheese. I?ve tried the...

    I suppose I opened this book with expectations that were too high. Everything I had ever heard about Mollie Katzen and her cookbooks gave the highest praise. I have relied on a few non-Katzen Moosewood cookbooks (Moosewood Sundays, Moosewood New Classics) myself over the past few years...

    I was introduced to the Moosebook Cookbook in the days when I had vegetarian roommates who'd buy the chow if I did the cooking. I was vegetarian by economic circumstance. Since I was on a tight budget, I ended up the house cook, and in those crunchy granola days I baked my own bread an...

    To appreciate this cookbook, which is famous for being hand-lettered and illustrated by the author and covers both the fundamentals and specifics for cooking hearty, earth-crunchy, mostly vegetarian dishes, you have to acknowledge that it is very much a product of its times. Meaning th...

    The first cookbook I ever owned. Actually, I stole it from my mom when I went to college, and the recipies are annotated with her notes from when I was a little kid. I love the dated aspects of the writing, like when Katzen explains what tofu is and how its hard to find, or when she in...

    This cookbook is not without its flaws -- the "ethnic" dishes are frequently repulsive -- but there's some really good, hearty earnest-white-person food up in here. The hummus, pasta sauce, Brazilian black bean soup, refritos, and lasagna recipes are absolute staples. ...

    My mom's copy has been taped back together, set on fire, and covered in too many ingredients to list. That adds to the appeal for me because I know it is something that she has cherished. When I became a vegetarian I thought "oh yes now Moosewood is mine." Then I realized that probably...

    While there are many flaws in this cookbook by 21st century standards, it was a miracle in the mid-70's. I went to college n 1977 and this book changed my eating life forever--so while it lacks alot in the way of spicing complexity that would seem altogether common today, it had vegeta...

    I have not cooked from this old favorite for quite a while but pulled it out to make the Hungarian Mushroom Soup this week and remembered just how much I love Mollie Katzen. A classic. Link to a pretty wonderful bowl of soup: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/20... ...

    I've used this cookbook so much it is falling apart. My favorite: Carrot Soup. Unfortunately, I can't use it much anymore as most of the recipes have milk products and I have a husband who is lactose intolerant. Still, I've been able to substitute for a few of them. A great cookbook an...

    A classic. ...

    I?m using my mother?s giant old paperback from the 90?s, back when she was new age acid tripping hipster! ...

    This is a nice vegetarian cookbook if you can figure out how to make it work. It has some very appealing recipes in it. It?s heavy on vegetable salads and vegetable entrees, and very heavy on tofu and cheese. Katzen tends to recommend tofu as a substitute for cheese. I?ve tried the...

    I suppose I opened this book with expectations that were too high. Everything I had ever heard about Mollie Katzen and her cookbooks gave the highest praise. I have relied on a few non-Katzen Moosewood cookbooks (Moosewood Sundays, Moosewood New Classics) myself over the past few years...

    I was introduced to the Moosebook Cookbook in the days when I had vegetarian roommates who'd buy the chow if I did the cooking. I was vegetarian by economic circumstance. Since I was on a tight budget, I ended up the house cook, and in those crunchy granola days I baked my own bread an...

    I think that this is my favorite cookbook of all time. My mom had a copy when I was growing up, and even though my family weren't vegetarians, this book was used to a good extent. At some point I became a vegetarian, snd so I used it a good deal more! When I grew up, my aunt bought me ...

    I love this cookbook, as well as really all of their cookbooks. But I think that there are a few things to consider when thinking about using it. If you're looking to cook authentic cuisine from different countries, this book is not really the book to use. Moosewood is more of an inter...

    I am posting this review for Connie, who bought me this book a few years ago and who just joined Goodreads! Anyway, I love this cookbook! The first couple times I tried anything out of this book, I thought to myself, "Wow - that was a lot of chopping." But as I've become more aware ...

    Excellent vegetarian cookbook! I have owned and used this book since it's initial release. It actually made my husband (a meat and potatoes farm boy) appreciate vegetarian meals and we eat meat-free at least once a week. The only downside is that we now know that vegetarian doesn't nec...

    I love the Moosewood cookbook. Even though I am not vegetarian anymore, I find cooking meat daunting - cooking in general really, but meat especially - so I like to use this cookbook. Also, the hadwritten, hand-drawn format feels less threatening than most cookbooks and she has these s...

    Our daughter introduced me to this cookbook when she was a teenager and a vegetarian (she now also will eat chicken & turkey- but won't cook it herself!). I love its simplicity and its outlook on cooking. Have made several recipes. Within the last year, we actually got to the Moose...

    This handprinted cookbook, Moosewood Collective's first of many books, is a pleasure to read --the artwork is whimsical, the printing is lovely, the commentary is joyful, and of course the recipes are wonderful. It's already my 'go to' for dips and spreads, and it makes my Moosewood co...

    Not technically vegan but vegetarian. I know I've read this cookbook before and enjoyed it. The recipes are pretty simple and I like the cutesy, handwritten style of the book. You can tell that a lot of love went into it. There are definitely a bunch of recipes that I plan to try ou...

    I really enjoy Molly Katzen's books. The recipes are really simple and use easy to find ingredients. Her writing is charming and devoid of the "simplicity snobbery" attitude sometimes found in other California cuisine books. Sometimes I wish she used more seasoning in her recipes, but ...

    I first heard about this book about two years ago - it had been explained to me as the "bible of vegetarian cooking." Well, I don't know about that, but there are a lot of fun recipes in here. It's a beautiful book, too, hand-lettered and illustrated. One of those cookbooks I just love...

    To appreciate this cookbook, which is famous for being hand-lettered and illustrated by the author and covers both the fundamentals and specifics for cooking hearty, earth-crunchy, mostly vegetarian dishes, you have to acknowledge that it is very much a product of its times. Meaning th...

    The first cookbook I ever owned. Actually, I stole it from my mom when I went to college, and the recipies are annotated with her notes from when I was a little kid. I love the dated aspects of the writing, like when Katzen explains what tofu is and how its hard to find, or when she in...

    This cookbook is not without its flaws -- the "ethnic" dishes are frequently repulsive -- but there's some really good, hearty earnest-white-person food up in here. The hummus, pasta sauce, Brazilian black bean soup, refritos, and lasagna recipes are absolute staples. ...

    My mom's copy has been taped back together, set on fire, and covered in too many ingredients to list. That adds to the appeal for me because I know it is something that she has cherished. When I became a vegetarian I thought "oh yes now Moosewood is mine." Then I realized that probably...

    While there are many flaws in this cookbook by 21st century standards, it was a miracle in the mid-70's. I went to college n 1977 and this book changed my eating life forever--so while it lacks alot in the way of spicing complexity that would seem altogether common today, it had vegeta...

    I have not cooked from this old favorite for quite a while but pulled it out to make the Hungarian Mushroom Soup this week and remembered just how much I love Mollie Katzen. A classic. Link to a pretty wonderful bowl of soup: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/20... ...

    I sat down to meal plan one day and ended up reading this book cover to cover. It was a pretty interesting cookbook. I of course knew it would be, having hung out for a decade with interesting cooks who love it. I remember an unschooling advocate using Mollie Katzen as an example of a ...

    Classic, delicious vegetarian recipes, although some are dated because it was published decades ago. ...

    I am not usually a cookbook reader but this one fitted into my collection of miniature books so I decided to give it a go. Not that I am ever likely to produce any of the dishes within its covers for I am not a gourmet chef, just one who likes the easy option and cooks simple things to...

    This is a vegetarian classic and for good reason. The recipes are flavorful, varied, and just plain good. Like the Enchanted Broccoli Forest, this cookbook is hand-written and illustrated, making it an exceptionally charming. Sample recipe below: Mushroom Curry 4 tbsp butter 2 c...

    This is a great collection of vegetarian options and most of the recipes are pretty easy and you can adjust them easily if you want to include your favorite veggies. Some of the recipes are kind of bland, though, so I will tell you the best ones, okay? Spanikopida-hands down, the best...

    I love this cookbook, as well as really all of their cookbooks. But I think that there are a few things to consider when thinking about using it. If you're looking to cook authentic cuisine from different countries, this book is not really the book to use. Moosewood is more of an inter...

    I am posting this review for Connie, who bought me this book a few years ago and who just joined Goodreads! Anyway, I love this cookbook! The first couple times I tried anything out of this book, I thought to myself, "Wow - that was a lot of chopping." But as I've become more aware ...

    Excellent vegetarian cookbook! I have owned and used this book since it's initial release. It actually made my husband (a meat and potatoes farm boy) appreciate vegetarian meals and we eat meat-free at least once a week. The only downside is that we now know that vegetarian doesn't nec...

    I love the Moosewood cookbook. Even though I am not vegetarian anymore, I find cooking meat daunting - cooking in general really, but meat especially - so I like to use this cookbook. Also, the hadwritten, hand-drawn format feels less threatening than most cookbooks and she has these s...

    Our daughter introduced me to this cookbook when she was a teenager and a vegetarian (she now also will eat chicken & turkey- but won't cook it herself!). I love its simplicity and its outlook on cooking. Have made several recipes. Within the last year, we actually got to the Moose...

    To appreciate this cookbook, which is famous for being hand-lettered and illustrated by the author and covers both the fundamentals and specifics for cooking hearty, earth-crunchy, mostly vegetarian dishes, you have to acknowledge that it is very much a product of its times. Meaning th...

    The first cookbook I ever owned. Actually, I stole it from my mom when I went to college, and the recipies are annotated with her notes from when I was a little kid. I love the dated aspects of the writing, like when Katzen explains what tofu is and how its hard to find, or when she in...

    This cookbook is not without its flaws -- the "ethnic" dishes are frequently repulsive -- but there's some really good, hearty earnest-white-person food up in here. The hummus, pasta sauce, Brazilian black bean soup, refritos, and lasagna recipes are absolute staples. ...

    My mom's copy has been taped back together, set on fire, and covered in too many ingredients to list. That adds to the appeal for me because I know it is something that she has cherished. When I became a vegetarian I thought "oh yes now Moosewood is mine." Then I realized that probably...

    While there are many flaws in this cookbook by 21st century standards, it was a miracle in the mid-70's. I went to college n 1977 and this book changed my eating life forever--so while it lacks alot in the way of spicing complexity that would seem altogether common today, it had vegeta...

    I have not cooked from this old favorite for quite a while but pulled it out to make the Hungarian Mushroom Soup this week and remembered just how much I love Mollie Katzen. A classic. Link to a pretty wonderful bowl of soup: http://kahakaikitchen.blogspot.com/20... ...

    I sat down to meal plan one day and ended up reading this book cover to cover. It was a pretty interesting cookbook. I of course knew it would be, having hung out for a decade with interesting cooks who love it. I remember an unschooling advocate using Mollie Katzen as an example of a ...

    Classic, delicious vegetarian recipes, although some are dated because it was published decades ago. ...

    I am not usually a cookbook reader but this one fitted into my collection of miniature books so I decided to give it a go. Not that I am ever likely to produce any of the dishes within its covers for I am not a gourmet chef, just one who likes the easy option and cooks simple things to...

    This is a vegetarian classic and for good reason. The recipes are flavorful, varied, and just plain good. Like the Enchanted Broccoli Forest, this cookbook is hand-written and illustrated, making it an exceptionally charming. Sample recipe below: Mushroom Curry 4 tbsp butter 2 c...

    This is a great collection of vegetarian options and most of the recipes are pretty easy and you can adjust them easily if you want to include your favorite veggies. Some of the recipes are kind of bland, though, so I will tell you the best ones, okay? Spanikopida-hands down, the best...

    I have an original paperback copy of the cookbook from the 1970's. The spine is neatly taped with masking tape and the pages are a bit yellow. I first got the cookbook in college and loved the hippy vibe. Though never a vegetarian or a serious cook, I did make some of the recipes. ...

    For me as a baker at Zomick's it is a good thing to see some of the recipes that are used in this kosher restaurant, which is one of the best known natural food restaurants in New York for some 40 years now. Haven't had a chance to prepare some of their recipes, bur mainly because I pa...
