I have a very large collection of vegetarian cookbooks and I have to limit myself now to only adding books that offer something truly special. Well, I know that I can always rely on Robin Robertson and I was looking forward to the release of this book. I have had wonderful results with her other vegetarian cookbooks including Vegan Planet, The Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker and others. I actually own all of her cookbooks. It is amazing how she never fails to provide delicious, simple to prepare, reliable and flavorful vegetarian recipes and this newest cookbook doesn't disappoint!

I highly recommend Carb Conscious Vegetarian for all vegetarian and vegan households. Actually, anyone who is interested in eating more healthfully can benefit from this collection of recipes. Plus, they are all creative and delicious. This book is different from some other vegetarian cookbooks because it doesn't rely heavily on dairy products or refined carbohydrates to add the bulk of meals. Every recipe is vegan and combines fresh vegetables, fruits, beans, soy, whole grains and spices to achieve great results.

The Ginger Sherry Tofu with Green Beans and Water Chestnuts was so awesome that we made it two nights in a row and devoured it entirely. It is easy to prepare and the fresh taste was awesome. We also tried the Sultry Summer Salsa and that was one of the prettiest and best tasting salsas we have ever had. It is perfectly tangy thanks to the tomatillos (which I had never tried before) and the colors are beautifully vibrant with yellow, green and red. It was perfect and my hubby is a salsa connoisseur.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
When my husband developed acid reflux, it was recommended that he lower his carb intake. As long time lacto vegetarians (no fish, meat or eggs, yes to dairy), this sounded particularly challenging.

I bought 3 different low carb cookbooks from Amazon a month ago: "Low-carb Vegetarian" by Celia Brooks Brown, "Carb Conscious Vegetarian: 150 Delicious Recipes For Healthy Lifestyle" by Robin Robertson and "The New Glucose Revolution Low GI Vegetarian Cookbook: 80 Delicious Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes Made Easy with the Glycemic Index" by Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller

After a month of consistent cooking I have rarely used Brown's "Low-carb Vegetarian" which is laden with ~50% recipes that use eggs. There are some great recipes in there if you eat eggs though.

On the other hand, my copy of "Carb Conscious Vegetarian: 150 Delicious Recipes For Healthy Lifestyle" by Robin Robertson is a bit dog-eared already. Delicious, innovative recipes with new ways to use foods common to the vegetarian and wonderful exploring of unusual but easily available new veggies and protein options.

"The New Glucose Revolution Low GI Vegetarian Cookbook" by Dr. Jennie Brand-Miller was rich with information and great recipes. It taught me a lot.

But by far Robertson's "Carb Conscious Vegetarian" is the best.

I will say that I don't know these authors and am doing this to help a buyer who may be wondering which one to get...

By the way, a low carb/lower acid diet has really eased the acid reflux my husband suffers from. We eat a main meal during the day and a protein drink at night, even if working: switched when consuming. And I am starting to lose weight...

Hope this helps!

My wife and I are vegan. She is always trying new recipes, and Robin

Robertson's new cookbook, Carb Conscious Vegetarian is perfect for us

both. I love a hearty meal, my wife likes a lighter meal. Most of these

recipes can be made with a serving of pasta, rice, or potatoes on the

side, or mixed in, so that both of us can enjoy a healthy, and myself a

bit heartier, meal. For example, the appetizers are great, because my

wife will make several of them at one time, and make a side of roasted

potatoes along with them (for me) and that makes a fun meal. Many of

the salads involve a combination of vegetables, tofu, tempeh, etc. to be

topped on lettuce leaves. Instead of putting the "topping" on lettuce as

my wife does, I put it over brown rice. The soups and stews are really

delicious, but if I need a little more food that night, I will throw in

some pasta or tofu cubes or have some bread on the side. The side dishes

can be served with roasted potatoes, rice, or pasta. The entrees are

satisfying enough on their own, but sometimes I will still make some

garlic bread or pasta on the side, and I'm plenty full. The Breakfast

Bites are fine as they are, filling enough for me in the morning. And the

Divine Desserts are unbelievably satisfying. This cookbook is really

versatile, and works great for that vegetarian or vegan couple or family

who enjoy great food, a healthy diet, and love to eat together, even

though they are on different diet plans.
