Rosensweig is a vegetarian; her husband and two daughters are not. She wrote her cookbook for other "split households" like hers, so that the family cook would be able to make one basic dish to satisfy everyone, adding meat or fish
or poultry as appropriate for the non-vegetarians. It's a good idea, but the recipes aren't always particularly wonderful (e.g., for Linguine with Lemon Cream Sauce, the sauce made from low-fat lemon yogurt and cornstarch), and some of the "Quick
Conversions" consist of nothing more than adding cubed cooked chicken or canned tuna to the basic recipe. For larger vegetarian collections.

Vegetarian & More!: Versatile
Vegetarian Recipes with Optional Meat Add-Ins
Linda Rosensweig, author of the highly successful New Vegetarian Cuisine, has created Vegetarian and More! to solve the dilemma of satisfying everyone at the table--vegetarians, semi-vegetarians, and
meat lovers--without cooking separate meals. As a vegetarian in a family of meat lovers, Rosensweig has developed 225 simple vegetarian recipes that include "Quick Conversions" so you can easily adapt the recipes for meat... read more
According to a recent survey, 14 million Americans call themselves vegetarians. Of that, only 2 million eat no animal meat whatsoever. The remaining 12 million are "part-time vegetarians" who eat fish, poultry, or red meat on occasion. For
this large and growing group, Linda Rosenweig offers a cookbook to satisfy vegetarians and nonvegetarians alike.
Rosenweig's experience stems from years developing recipes for Weight Watchers, Prevention, and Good Housekeeping magazines. Her 225
vegetarian recipes in Vegetarian and More! include "Quick Conversions," allowing readers to easily add meat, poultry, or fish to some or all of the recipe. These are especially convenient for "split houseolds," where only a few members are vegetarians.
The focus is on simplicity: only common, store-bought ingredients are used, and most of the recipes are ready in less than 45 minutes. The book also features the new Vegetarian Diet Pyramid from the American Dietetic Association. Vegetarian and More!
allows those eating less meat, vegetarians, and meat lovers total satisfaction.
