The Challenge of Vegetarian Meals

Linda Gassenheimer

By Linda Gassenheimer

When I created a Farmer's Market in Miami, I spoke often with the farmers and customers and was surprised by their questions:

"How do I cook this?"

"How can I get my kids to eat more vegetables?"

"How can I make my vegetables taste good?"

These questions along with requests from my readers prompted me to start writing some vegetarian meals for my syndicated column, "Dinner in Minutes."

As I began to develop new recipes, I realized that most vegetarian meals take a lot of time to prepare and have a lot of fat. This was a real challenge.

I created this book to meet these demands using these important elements:

  • quick shopping
  • quick recipes with as little chopping and measuring as possible
  • healthy dinners that fit within the government guidelines
  • and most important, exciting and varied flavors
