After reviewing hundreds of cookbooks, this is simply the best vegan cookbook I have ever seen. The cooking methods are wonderful, healthful, and inexpensive.

All the recipes are low-fat, simple to prepare, and meat and dairy free. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone

This is the best vegetarian/vegan cookbook that I have on my shelf! Rarely do I find a recipe that my family doesn't like. Last night we had the Oatburgers and they were wonderful! Even my picky 3-year old was asking for seconds (and thirds). We are changing our eating habits and trying to live a vegan lifestyle. This cookbook has made it very easy to enjoy yummy, good food without feeling deprived.

I've recommended this cookbook to many over the last 5 years. The recipes are tasty and economical. Living in the heart of dairy country and unable to consume dairy products, and for some time meat, I was delighted not to run into these over-used foods and still find tasty food. I use this cookbook as a reference often. Includes an informative article on dietary fat in the back. It's worth the purchase price.

This book changed my life. I'm not a vegan, but these recipes are just so good, that without even noticing I started eating only healthy food. 99% of what I made from this book was great!

I have been reseaching a lot of cookbooks over time and this one offers some ideas on tried and true recipes. While it is a good addition to my cookbooks had I had the chance to look at it first hand I would have quickly realised that I already had most of the recipes contained...This book on the other hand would be wonderfull for someone starting out going vegtarian. If you get this book make sure to tweek the flavors in it as I find them to be a bit bland...though for my tastes I perfer rock your socks off flavors, and heat so that is just a personal prefrence. This book personally is a good buy.

I think I got this cookbook from a yardsale, not positive, but I have turned to it time and time again for healthy vegan recipes. Right now a lot of people and their churches are going on the 'Daniel Fast' but in need of 3 weeks worth of recipes to sustain your family, this book will help you find them.

Before you begin though you need to have certain items on hand that are generally not found in the average pantry these days: agar flakes, arrowroot powder, carob powder, cacao, almond flour, lecithin, soyagen, oat flour(directions to make your own included in book, tofu, pimentos, and various other things. All obtainable in your local Whole Foods store, Trader Joe's, Henry's, or online.

NO recipe in this book uses dairy products. If a recipe calls for a milk or cheese sauce, they include their own version using various ingredients to produce a similar flavor, texture, or comparable component. This book is most useful for the fast, since the variety of vegetables suggested in the recipes could be expanded with today's produce availability. A lifelong vegan would want more but this is a good base to start with.

A lot of the guidelines for the 'Daniel Fast' say no corn chips, however, the recipe in this book calls for baking the uncooked tortillas after brushing with water and sprinkling with spices. NO frying there! Even tells you how to make various Soy Milks and Graham Crackers which are great while on the fast. Afterwards you can use all of the healthy bread recipes that are in here.

This is one of my favorite 2 recipe books in the entire house (the other is a raw food recipe book)... I use it practically every day. It contains everything from staples like vegan cheese and salad dressings to amazing entrees and desserts.

I've tried less than half the recipes in the book... simply because the ones I have tried are SO GOOD that I want them again and again. For example, two recipes I use on a regular basis are the "Sunflower Sour Cream" (this tastes AWESOME on baked potatoes) and the "Savory Bouquet" salad dressing (YUMMY!).

The recipes are so good, that even my meat-lover friends enjoy vegan meals when they come to my house. In fact, the "Pottage Du Fromage" (cheesy broccoli soup) is frequently requested by my non-vegan guests. One friend told me "I can't believe it doesn't have cheese in it! It tastes better than any broccoli cheese soup I've ever had."

You can't go wrong by getting this book. And, once you start using it, you'll probably find yourself doing what I do... making it your primary go-to resource for vegan meals.
