I am recommending it to everyone!
Patricia Hineman
I won't eat stevia and can't eat soy or tofu, so I have to modify many of the recipes in this book which makes it nearly useless to me.
Gabe
Most of the ingredients are not the normal things you would have in the cupboard so you need to prepare for these recipes in advance.

This cookbook is a fantastic resource for vegetarians or vegans looking to use a low-carb diet. I'm sure most vegetarians, like me, are well aware than our choice of diet is not exactly low-carb. And looking through most low-carb cookbooks supporting the "Atkins Diet" or "South Beach Diet" or similar doesn't offer much hope.

This book changes that. It is packed with good-tasting, vegetarian (and in many cases, vegan) recipes that are low in carbs, higher in fat and protein.

American readers should note that this is an English cookbook. All measurements are in both SI (metric) and US (or Imperial) units, so you won't have any problems there. However, some terms will require a little research. Keep a dictionary -- or the internet, or both -- handy. E.G. "Courgettes" are zucchini. "Dolcelate" is a milder version of Gorgonzola made for export to England. Don't neglect a recipe just because you haven't heard of it, because chances are, you have -- just under a different name.

And a few recipes have measurements in both systems that aren't very close, like 300 ml vs. 1/2 pint. You may wish to try them both ways, your measuring cups probably are labeled for both anyway -- think of it as a game.

The tarragon, Peccorino, almond tart is just fantastic. Even if you live somewhere in the sticks like me and Peccorino (sheep's milk) Romano is hard to find.

My final comment: I am finally losing weight since gaining it constantly after becoming vegetarian.

(Edit May, 2012.)

Still using and enjoying this cookbook.

I figured out the pint issue: An Imperial (UK) pint -- which is used in the book -- is 568 mL or 20 Imperial ounces. A US pint is 473 mL, or 16 US ounces. US and UK ounces are also slightly different.

The Vegetarian Low Carb Diet by Rose Elliot is excellent. To follow these recipies will bring kitchen creativity into your life and will begin immediate weight loss. Since beginning I am loosing 2 kilos per week which to me is just great as I NEVER feel hungry.

Also I am diabetic, before starting the Vegetarian Low Carb my sugar count (Australian) was around a horrific 18 to 23. After a few days on the diet it dropped to between 8 and 10.

My advice to all diabetics ...Chuck out the carbs. Now!

I am recommending it to everyone!

I won't eat stevia and can't eat soy or tofu, so I have to modify many of the recipes in this book which makes it nearly useless to me. If you can't or won't build your diet around these things then it will be useless to you, too.

I was so happy to see that there was another person on the planet who was a low carb vegetarian, and that they had written a book! It makes us hard to feed. It's a good book, with some variety and good ideas. My only fuss is that I wish there was more of it, and the Brit influence makes some of the terminology a little hard to grasp. I still don't know what a Courgette is. Anyway, good effort and helps to fill out my cookbook corner.

It's difficult to manage carbs as a vegetarian. This is a great cookbook to help me with the nuances of the healthy lifestyle I have chosen. Easy recipes which taste good!

I like this book for all the different vegetarian dishes. I am not vegetarian but enjoy eating a mostly vegetarian diet. This book has been helpful providing alternatives to the standard carbs most vegetarians eat.
