Read an Excerpt
Top Ten Reasons to Eat Soup1. Soup is easy to make and requires only one pot. 2. Soup is random. You can put whatever you want in it. (In fact, it's a great way to use up veggies that are getting old in your freezer or fridge.) 3. Soups are a tasty way to sneak veggies and other nutritious foods into your diet. 4. Soup can be made to suit any taste: creamy soup, chunky soup, spicy soup, noodly soup, you name it. 5. Soup is transportable. Pack some in a thermos or a sealable plastic container and you're good to go. (And most soups taste best as leftovers, anyway.) 6. Soup lets you blend in. You can't really tell just by looking at soup whether it was made with chicken stock or veggie stock, so you won't stand out as the weird vegetarian. 7. Soup is flexible. You can make a soup more filling just by adding things like beans, noodles, rice or more veggies. 8. Soup warms you up in the winter. And cold soups, like gazpacho, cool you down in summer. 9. Soup is inexpensive.

I got this book for my classroom library, but my husband saw it and wanted to keep it instead! It's a great beginner's guide to vegetarianism with straightforward language and simple recipes. We've enjoyed it. I found more copies on sale to put in my classroom for the growing number of young vegetarians.
i have been a vegetarian for years. The recipes are so yummy!
I am considering becoming vegetarian and couldn't find a simple, straightforward book about what exactly to eat and meal planning. I've been a carnivore all my life and this book made fixing vege meals not rocket science. I got to test run it through my local library and I hope they don't notice the food stains. After reading it I ran into the kitchen to try some recipes and my husband's brown bag lunches have changed for the better. I am definitely getting this book and I assure you it won't sit in my library but on that exalted spot on my microwave in the kitchen.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to be a vegitarian or not,but this book does not only have great recipes to try out but everthing from facts about being a vegitarian to other teens opinions. I would recomend it to every teen!
