Product Details


“Meals that are both tasty and filling without having a slab of meat as the overbearing star ingredient”
—Publisher’s Weekly
“The authors of the new book Almost Meatless make a satisfying case for eating less meat and more vegetables and grains…The resulting dishes are healthier, less expensive and beautifully balanced.”
—Chicago Sun Times
“The recipes look good enough for carnivores to enjoy as well”
—Tampa Tribune
“This way of eating makes sense not just for saving money, but, as the authors say in the subtitle, for the planet.”
“Show[s] that a less meatcentric diet than the typical American one can still be satisfying and delicious”
—Library Journal
“Filled with recipes that use only a small amount of meat in each dish, a flavorful accent rather than the star of the show”
—Boston Globe
