Jazzy Vegetarian Classics is a must-have for anyone wanting to expand their repertoire of great tasting dishes that remind you of Mom’s cooking. And my favorite part---you won’t have to go to some specialty market to find the ingredients.”
—Chef Del Sroufe, author of Forks Over Knives—The Cookbook and Better Than Vegan

“[Laura Theodore’s] passion for food, music, and the art of presentation is contagious. Jazzy Vegetarian Classics shows people they are not giving up anything by eating more healthfully, but rather entering a world where food is more interesting, varied, and delicious. The recipes are not just for vegetarians or vegans, but for anyone who loves and celebrates food.”

I've followed Laura Theodore on television and found her cooking methods and recipes accessible and easily doable. This is the second of her cookbooks that I've purchased and I like the color photographs of what the final dish is to look like. So far, for a man I'm doing pretty good following instructions. I'm very pleased and I hope you will be too.

Format: Hardcover
This book is a must-have for anyone interested in exploring a vegan, plant-based diet. Whether you want to add 1 or 2 vegan recipes per week to your repertoire or are an experienced plant-based cook, this book will be a great addition to your library. There is everything from main dishes to desserts to breakfasts -- and everything in between. Additionally, Laura has created foolproof menus so that it is clear what side dishes go with which mains, etc. Most of the recipes in this book are plant-based versions of American comfort food classics. That makes it fun and easy to create plant-based meals the whole family will love and enjoy because everything will already be familiar. A personal favorite are Laura's low-fat version of the traditional coconut macaroons - her coconut "vegaroons," which are totally delish.

I pre-ordered this book so I could review it as soon as it came out. It's gorgeous, practical, inspiring and an essential addition to any home cook's library. Excellent work from this chef, author, jazz singer extraordinaire.

If you are vegan and are tired of preparing two different meals one for you and one for the rest of the family this book is for you. Laura Theodore is a marvelous chef and provides simple but excellent recipes for meals that your family already loves and that you can eat as well. What a time and money saver this is. And then there is the added bonus that the entire family will benefit from reduced animal fats and get their needed daily vegetable servings. This book makes cooking for the family a breeze.

Made 4 of the recipes since receiving this cook book. Loved them all. The roasted paprika vegetables is a personal fav, I make them all the time. Love them for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Recipes are so versatile, quick and easy, and the quick tips and intro to the book isn't wordy and super easy to follow. Just love this.

Jazzy Vegetarian Classics is a wonderful introduction to the vegan lifestyle. I became familiar with the author through her public television show. Her book begins with an explanation of vegan/vegetarian dishes. There is a glossary of common foods used in the recipes. None of these call for difficult to find ingredients. Many offer a meatless option for a well known comfort food. I am vegetarian, so I choose to substitute ingredients at times. But I look for variety, and something new to try, especially THIS winter. The photos are great, there are suggestions for menus, and there are helpful notes.

I started watching her shows on Create and really enjoyed all the things she made. I decided to buy the book and I am glad I did. I have tried many recipes and enjoyed all of them. This is a great addition to my other cookbooks.
