Now, not all vegan cookbooks are complicated and not all vegan recipes require exotic foods. However, very few authors ever suggest using the kinds of convenience ingredients found in this book. Typically, and for good reasons, they advocate using only the freshest of the fresh organic, happy hippie food products from the aforementioned stores. Moreover, this book is not overloaded with the whys and how-tos of vegan eating, something I find pretentious, militant, and redundant.
You do not have to flip through this book to find one or two time-saving, inexpensive, short ingredient list recipes; all of these recipes are such. The end results are not bland, but they are also not the wacky-far-out flavors that some associate with any kind of alternative eating, be it ethnic or ethical, making it an excellent starter book for those looking to try a strict vegetarian diet who don't want to be overwhelmed by the exoticism and aggressive politics of even some of the best vegan books.
