Here's some reviews about Quick Vegetarian Dishes, from the experts:

"The great cuisines of the world, many of which are largely vegetarian, are the basis for Kurma Dasa's latest collection of recipes, presented in a clear, concise style and appealingly illustrated with lots of color photography. Quick Vegetarian Dishes is colorful, healthy (and easy-to-prepare) food that's perfect for everyday cooking - even if you're not a vegetarian."
(Australian Gourmet Traveler, February 2001)

"While Kurma may be the high priest of vegetarian cuisine, you don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy his cooking. Quick Vegetarian Dishes is fresh, original and delicious! This book, Kurma's third, offers an eclectic and exotic assortment of inspiring, easy to prepare vegetarian dishes, as well as some scrumptious fruit-based recipes and desserts. A delight for the gourmet."
(The Canberra Chronicle, December 2000)

"I really enjoy Kurma's no-frills, no gimmicks television show. His enthusiasm for vegetarian food is infectious. He has already written many successful books, but, as the name implies, the emphasis here is on making quick and easy meals. Quick Vegetarian Dishes is packed with color photographs of virtually every dish. Highly recommended."
(Brisbane Courier Mail, December 2000)

"The recipes in Quick Vegetarian Dishes were collected with busy people in mind, and they really are dishes that can be prepared in a hurry. And the selection - and presentation - is enough to sway any meat-lover."
(Noosa Daily News, Feb 2001)
