The recipes in this book are some of the best available if you are serious about eating a healthy diet. They are not only vegetarian but they eliminate the refined oils and sugars which are such a major factor in causing diseases like atherosclerosis, heart disease, adult onset diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels. They are the recipes used at the Newstart lifestyle program where they get excellent results with just diet and exercise. The recipes are delicious; we use them in our home all the time. I highly recommend this cookbook to my patients.

a solid good cookbook for those aspiring to the vegan diet. the only drawbacks being that some recipies require hard-to-locate ingredients such as vegan gelatin and smoked yeast. Other than that a very worthwhile purchase for those wishing to eat healthy, etc.

This book contains recipes that nutitionally conscious people will love -- while using commonly available ingredients. As exciting as the recipes are, the nutritional information makes this a MUST READ cookbook. LOVE IT !! By incorporating these recipes or ideas into my diet (we still eat meat) and beginning moderate exercise (1hour 3xweek) I have cut my diabetes oral medication by half in less than one month !! Doc says 6mo - 1 year to be medicine free !! (after 3 years of gradually worsening diabetes) This cookbook could save your life !

This is a great resource for vegan cooking. Most of the recipes are "veganized" versions of old favourites, like Mac and cheese and "meat"loaf. It contains guidelines on cooking grains and other great nutritional info as well as many delicious recipes most of which are really quick and simple. There are even some "special" recipes that take more steps but you'd want to make them for a special occasion. I wouldn't cook every single meal out of this book (who uses a recipe book for every meal anyway?) but when I have time or a hankering for something a little more put together than a sandwich or beans and rice I pull it out. Some of my favourites are the "cheese" sauce and the tofu walnut loaf. There are some ingredients used that might be hard to find outside the US (like egg replacer or agar agar) but they are only found in some of the recipes. I make the bread recipe regularly (mostly make it into breadsticks) and it makes a wonderful loaf, light but substantial.

I have read this book in prior editions and found it interesting but not too creative. This seems like another effort to adopt a vegan diet to the standard western high fat diet. There are a lot of casseroles, "loafs", breads but nothing real profound like creative salads, different ethnic variations that are not "meat substitute", but rather stand-alone tasty food. There is a real absence of the use of herbs and seasoning.

If you want a vegan old european world "meat and potatoes" style of food, this is for you.

I borrowed this book from a friend to read. It didn't take long before I realized I needed this book for my own. Wonderful recipes for healthy eating.
