Vegetarian cooks need spices, scented oils, nuts, seeds, creativity and commitment. This guide speaks to the person who likes vegetarian food but doesn't make it a religion. Die hards, however, will not be disappointed. Lee works mightily to raise the verdures and legumes that occupy the bottom of the food pyramid to the pinnacle of pleasure. (Warner, $24.95)
