Format: Paperback
Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons is the fourth edition of Nava's book previously titled Vegetarian Soups for All Seasons. It is essentially the same book as the third edition, but with the color photos added along with the new cover. It is substantially different from the first two editions.

I am a total soup nut so I was very excited to try this one. I hadn't seen any of the previous editions but I'm a big fan of Nava's other cookbooks. This certainly lived up to my expectations. Like all of Nava's cookbooks, the recipes in this book were easy to make, used simple ingredients that I typically have in my pantry, and, most importantly, my family loved them.

The recipes are arranged by seasons, which is a really nice feature since we try to eat local, seasonal foods. It being January when I got the book, I turned straight to the winter soups and found several just perfect for a rainy winter suppers. The first soup I tried was the Three Bean Soup with Brown Rice. Well, actually it was only two bean soup (kidney and cannellini) because I didn't have any frozen green beans. I did have kale though so we still got the green in there. My daughters had bowl after bowl of this hearty tomato-based soup and I ended up with no leftovers for lunch the next day.

The second soup we tried was the Hearty Winter Roots Soup. This was a wonderful mash of potatoes, carrots, rutabagas, and parsnips in a creamy, cheesy soup. Another hit with the family. The third dish we tried was the Vegetarian Goulash--a great "meat" (seitan) and potatoes stew that reminded me of the Sunday dinners my mom made when I was growing up--except without the meat of course.

I can't wait to cook my way through the rest of the seasons.

As a person who has over 30 vegan cookbooks (My husband can't believe there are that many vegan cookbooks in print!) I definitely will add this one to those at the top of my list. One of the best things about this book is that it is divided into seasons, so it's easy to find the produce at a reasonable price in the grocery store and it's more likely that it will be locally grown. Another thing I like is that the ingredients are mostly easy to find. I love weird ingredients as much as anyone, but when you are trying to figure out what to make for dinner you don't want to have to run all over town trying to find something that's obscure.

My favorite recipe so far is a fall one, Sweet and Sour Sauerkraut Soup which includes carrots, celery, potatoes, diced tomatoes and of course, sauerkraut among other things. If you don't like sauerkraut or sour foods, skip this one, but I think it's even better the next day. Another favorite is the Okra-Rice Gumbo or the Thai-Flavored Coconut Vegetable Soup. These all go together pretty quickly and if you double the recipe you'll have enough for a couple days and the flavors have a way of melding together that makes them all the better.

Soup is always great with a big salad and some crusty bread and this cookbook has a lot of imaginative recipes, not just the same old standbys. It's one of those books that's fun to just go through and read because I always seem to find one recipe that is appealing for that particular day, no matter what sort of mood I'm in. Two thumbs up for this book! I'll be looking forward to more vegan cookbooks by Nava Atlas.

I was really disappointed with this cookbook. We love soup and I was excited to have another source for vegan soups but I should have read the book more carefully before buying it. Almost every recipe requires fake milk or fake cheese. In my experience, recipes with lots of fake food substances generally aren't great and the soups I tried from this book were no exception. If you are looking for vegan recipes why in the world would you want a recipe for Mac and Cheese soup?!? After reading the book, it became clear that this book is adapted from another presumably dairy-rich book. By adapted, I mean that the reader is instructed to just put fake cream or cheese or milk into the soup. There are so many great books (vegan or not) that provide recipes for soups that are delicious and built with naturally vegan foods (like beans and vegetables). I don't see why anybody would prefer to make soup with poor-tasting industrial food substitutes but I appear to be in the minority.

I was really excited to receive this book. Who doesn't love to make a good soup? I have been using this book as my go to cookbook lately, but each recipe seems to get worse and worse. Nava Atlas originally wrote this book as a vegetarian cookbook. She went vegan and changed the recipes, hence the reason that there are so many soups that say garnish with vegan cheese. I try not to use too much vegan cheese because it is so expensive, but if you can afford it then go for it. She also really likes prepackaged spice mixes like No-Salt Added Mrs. Dash. I have a million spices and would rather use those than going out and buying a new spice blend.

Perhaps it is because of this that I found the soups to be lack luster and flavorless. I made the Taco Soup and the Mac and Cheese soup which were good despite the Mac and Cheese thickened up every time I put in the refrigerator and became a casserole. The Autumn Harvest Stew and the Polenta Potage (this soup also turned into a brick of polenta in the fridge) were flavorless. The kicker for me was the fall soup called Kale, Yellow Squash and Sweet Potato Stew. This has summer squash in it which is obviously a summer vegetable not fall. It tastes terrible seasoned with both balsamic vinegar and fresh ginger. I wasted Kale and Sweet Potatoes! I was so glad to finish this soup.

I will continue to cook with this cookbook, but don't have high hopes for it.
