This review is aimed toward you health-conscious vegetarians out there. This cookbook is none other than the way vegetarians USED to eat: lots of eggs, dairy, and eggplant! To sum it up, I did an approximate breakdown of the 150 recipes: 12 contain eggplant; 20 mushrooms; 25 zucchini/squash; 21 beans; 23 eggs; 90 DAIRY! (We all know that the fats in dairy products are the WORST kind.) And for you carb counters there's a whopping 62 recipes containing Idaho potatoes, rice, pasta, or bread products! ("Toast" and tortillas are common meal accompaniments.)

We also see a tremendous amount of repeated ingredients here, and recipes that have run the vegetarian gamut for years - nothing new and innovative.

That said, there are a few "tasty" options, yet those don't justify buying this cookbook.

Format: Paperback
This book is NOT low carb.

In the introduction, this author (a nutritionist) gives many subtle backhanded comments about low carbers. She basically says that you are going to make yourself sick if you don't follow the food pyramid (note: she was referring to the old food pyramid, which even the government doesn't follow any more).

So she says that if this is how you've decided to eat (and she's not going to endorse it), then make sure to eat at least 120-200 carbs a day.

Hello??? I eat an extremely healthy (mostly vegetarian) low-carb organic diet, and usually say under 25 carbs a day for weight loss mode, and under 40 carbs a day on weight maintenance mode. What she is suggesting would cause anyone to gain weight!

I don't know what draws people to this book - but I suspect she may actually "trick" some low carb newbies into accidentally carbo-loading (which I think may be her ulterior motive). If you've read *anything* else about glycemic index & carbs, this book will NOT fit with your diet or weight loss plan.

Case in point: she says if you've had your breakfast & lunch, and haven't had any carbs (like I usually do), then you should have 6 servings of carbs for dinner, desert, &/or evening snack. So ... if throughout the day, I eat my normal diet of quiche, salads, broccoli, kelp, spinach, squash, zucchini, cucumbers, celery, etc., and haven't had any breads or starches, this author recommends eating SIX more servings of carbs (i.e., bowls of pasta, mac & cheese, or Ramen noodles)! This is absolutely insane to me ...and a recipe for weight gain AND adult onset diabetes.

Avoid this book. There are many other good low carb vegetarian cookbooks out there, or I suggest using Google to pull up all sorts of interesting recipes and ideas.

Format: Paperback
Every recipe I've tried so far has been excellent - Lentil Vegetable Soup, Mixed Bean and Cheese Salad with Ginger Dressing, Tacos with "Chorizo" and Potatoes! Some of the soups include sides that use low carb bread, for example open-face cucumber cream cheese sandwiches with dill, which also make great snacks.

I am a lacto-ovo vegetarian, and loved that this book included cheese and egg dishes. I love beans and lentils and this cookbook showed me some awesome new ways to use them. I also like that it occasionally uses some vegetarian convenience foods, like veggie sausage.

All of the ingredients are easy to find in any grocery store. The recipes are easy to follow.
