Whether or not you are a vegetarian or a student, this is a very good cookbook of (as the title says) quick, easy, cheap, tasty, and nutritious dishes that serve one or two. It would also be useful for the individual who hasn't gone much further than cooking meals that come straight from a box or a can and would like to attempt to prepare meals from scratch, but isn't sure where to begin or how to go about it.

This is my bible of vegetarian cooking. Simple, delicious, and filling -- servings for one or two people (as much as I love the Vegetarian Times' recipes, I can't make food to serve 4-8 people when I'm the only one eating -- and dividing 1/4 cup by 4 or 8 results in some strange measurements). Also recommend her Student's Go Vegan Cookbook, even though I'm not vegan.
I haven't perused this book since I became a vegan 5 years ago but pulled it out of my home library today. The recipes are not very cheese or egg heavy at all, and most non-vegan items can be replaced quite easily (soy instead of milk etc). I think I made my very first curry tofu scramble from this book. It has a good stir-fry section (especially for when you need fresh ideas on this most basic standby of veggie cooking!), a section for bean meals (which is making me hungry imagining them) as we ...more

Now that I'm a much more serious and complicated cook, this old book managed to fall to the bottom of my cookbook pile. I hadn't used it in years, even though this is probably my third copy of the book. But now I'm trying to get through a semester of school without taking out any loans, and I've gotta be more frugal. This cookbook is the perfect solution! Everything in it is cheap, quick, edible, and vegetarian. That's about all I care about right now. Amen!
Good introductory cookbook, designed for someone who wants to figure out how to eat veg fast. I read these cookbooks because i'm trying to eat healthier, and looking for recipes that are quick easy and are something I will actually eat. There's about 10 recipes I know I'll try for sure in this book, and I suspect I will be making them more than once.

Simple and budget friendly recipes for anyone wanting to eat less or no meat. I used this alot when I was a vegetarian, then when I ate plenty of meat but wanted to add vegetarian meals to my diet. Now I'm using for my family to transition.

Good recipes anyone can enjoy..even the non veg's.

Very basic... definitely for the vegetarian who is just learning how to cook on their own as evidenced with recipes for steamed vegetables :) But has some very tasty combinations that I wouldn't have thought of - like black bean sweet potato quesadillas...yum!

This is a great book for new vegetarians. It has a handful of recipes but they're all designed for a new-veggie kitchen. Easy to prep recipes (like less than 10 minutes usually) and with easy-to-find ingredients, I'd rate it a 4 out of 5. It's pretty good but not the best I've found out there.

I am so disappointed in this book. I bought it because I liked her Student's Go Vegan Cookbook, but I have not yet found one decent recipe in this one! I have an older version, so maybe some of the flaws have been fixed in the revised one?

Recommends it for: newby vegetarians or learning cooks

Purchased for my daughter the vegetarian. I skimmed through it and it looked like a good choice for high school and college vegetarians who need to learn to eat more than bread and jam. My daughter, however, turned out to be her mother's child and does not cook either.

Favorite cookbook EVER.
It's all that the title promises: quick, easy, cheap, and tasty. Not gourmet, but that's what blogs are for. It also gives small amounts-- one or two servings-- so you don't end up with 6 servings of leftovers.

Simple and easy and cheap and quick and healthy and meat-free meals that are great for a students or a poor educators budget! By far my favorite ever cookbook!!!

Some of the recipes in this book are delicious! Some are honestly not so good. But the book does stay true to the principle of eating cheaply and quickly without eating total junk food.

I feel like this is a cookbook I will continue to go back to again and again. There are SO MANY wonderful and delicious-looking recipes that I want to try!

I LOVE this book. All the recipes are simple, non-labor-intensive, use fresh ingredients, and aimed at cooking for one. Perfect if you live alone.
