Things I loved about this cookbook:

Clean recipes with fresh, whole ingredients
Wonderfully informative first chapter on a plant powered kitchen - lots of good information in one spot.
The majority of the recipes are soy free or have a soy-free option
All recipes are either wheat free or gluten free
Index that lets you search for recipes by ingredient
A good mix of kid friendly recipes and more flavorful `gourmet' style recipes
Most of the recipes include commentary and tips, which I think is so helpful

Things I wish were added to this cookbook:
More pictures of the recipes.
Nutritional information for the recipes.

Bottom line, I LOVE this cookbook and it is dog eared, smudged and stained to prove it.

I've prepared several recipes from this book and all of them have been a hit with my family. One of the issues I've had with some vegan cookbooks is they either rely heavily on processed ingredients or they only serve 1-2 person for the entire recipe. Let Them Eat Vegan not only has family sized recipes, we often have enough for lunches as well.
There are many recipes that center around beans and lentils making them inexpensive to prepare for a family on a budget.
Overall, this book is a great resource for the plant-based family that has a wide variety of recipes. The only room for improvement I could see is more pictures of the recipes and I'd love to see a meal plan section that suggests sides that pair well with the entrees.

After falling in love with the cumin-cinnamon vinaigrette, cocoa coconut chili, and avocado and pinto bean enchilada recipes in "Eat, Drink and Be Vegan", I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of Dreena's new cookbook "Let Them Eat Vegan!"

So far I have made the steel cut oats in an instant, Thai chickpea almond curry, and baked macaroni with broccoli and creamy walnut gravy, and they have all been outstanding! Each recipe is incredibly versatile, plant based and not too complicated. This would be a great cookbook for someone who is learning how to cook vegan recipes at home. I recommend it to all my friends, vegan, vegetarian or carnivore.

I can't wait to work my way through cooking more recipes. Thanks Dreena!

The long-awaited fourth book did not disappoint! It is literally full of amazing vegan recipes, and the best part is that none of them use icky vegan substitutes like fake meat, or fake cream cheese, etc. The book covers everything from soups, salads, and sauces, to breakfasts, baked goods, ice creams, raw foods, and main meals. How could you not find something you want to try!? Every recipe has brilliant ideas for substitutions that will make the recipe either nut-free, soy-free, gluten-free, and so on. This makes it soo easy to adapt any recipe to suit you or your family's needs. I tested out several recipes in just a couple of days, and I can't wait to try out some more. Check out the rest of my review here: [...]

Dreena is by far one of my favorite cookbook authors, and her recipes have become household staples. I enjoy seeing her personal transition in her diet throughout the books. She always has suggestions and amazing advice for families especially. Sadly there were some errors in Gluten/Allergen Free labeling (she has released statements apologizing whole heartedly), but as other reviewers have said if you maintain a GF lifestyle you will quickly pick-up on this and the errors are being corrected. I am so excited to make all these new foods, especially with the more nut based recipes and raw desserts. I know they are higher fat, which at least one other reviewer commented on but we need healthy fats especially for a whole plant strong diet and no-one says you need to eat exclusively from "let them eat vegan". We all strive for a healthy balance and I feel that Dreena, along with other authors give us the tools we need to not only eat healthy but explore new food options. I highly recommend all of Dreena Burton's cookbooks!

So I went vegetarian to vegan to vegetarian back to meat. This is still the most awesome cookbook. My step kids have celiac and this tells you how to do the recipes to make them gluten free. So this book really has something for everyone. Let me tell you something. This food is GOOD! It has the best bean burger recipe I've ever eaten in it. You feel full and you feel good eating the foods in this book. I have to have tasty. I can't just eat healthy it has to be yummy. It's yummy! So by all means vegan or vegetarian or someone wanting to change their cooking to mostly healthy eating....This book is for you!

Dreena's recipes have become my favorites, her creativity is just simply amazing. Her books are wonderful, the recipes are very well explained and after trying more than a third of this book I did not feel disappointed even one single time, everything I've tried was absolutely delicious!
Best of all, there is a great emphasis to whole food ingredients, and I also love that the use of oil is low and in lots of recipes can be omitted, some books you see out there have lots of appealing dishes that call for way too much oil.
Dreena really knows how to combine flavors well, she's absolutely the best!

I bought the book and didn't have time to put it to use. However my sister who is not vegan visited for a weekend and she made several recipes that blew us all away! The Mexican bean soup with chipotle avodaco cream was spectacular and now I make it regularly. The black bean quinoa & sweet potato croquettes with pumpkin seed chipotle cream also hit the spot. My sister and her family couldn't believe vegan food could taste so wonderful. Now I take the time to cook from LTEV, and the Festive Chickpea Tart has been on our holiday table several times. Love Dreena's recipes!

Dreena Burton cookbooks are the reason I felt confident that I could take the plunge and go vegan....4 years later, and I've never looked back! Her books are indispensable, and this latest one is her best yet!! Not only are the recipes delicious, they're healthy (I know most people think vegan recipes are automatically healthy, but that's not always true!). She has extensive tips and variations with most of the recipes, there are PICTURES, and overall you feel like a friend is with you in the kitchen. The Chia Seed Pancakes are the only pancakes I can eat without going into a sugar coma afterwards; I feel good feeding them to my family. The raw brownie recipe is to DIE for! Seriously amazingly delicious! There are so many that I can't wait to try! Do yourself a favor and get this book! You don't have to be vegan to enjoy these recipes.

Dreena Burton is my new favorite cookbook author! I've recently purchased all four of her cookbooks for my Kindle and everything I've made has been absolutely divine. Favorites from this cookbook are the Nofu Love Loaf, Jerk Chickpeas, and Mushroom-Pecan Burgers (which were a July 4th hit). I especially appreciate that the directions are really clear and set up so that you can make each recipe as efficiently as possible. A terrific book!
