5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for anyone--vegetarian, vegan, or not!, November 29, 2011
Lindsay's recipes are wonderful for everyone from the novice to the experienced cook. They are simple and straightforward, but they taste complex and are largely based on your every day kitchen staples. It is genius! There are too many gems in this book to list out, and you won't be disappointed by anything you try. If you are an omnivore, a vegetarian, a flexetarian, or a vegan, this book is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for vegan bakers, April 15, 2011
What a great cookbook! There are so many options I don't know where to begin. Everything I have made has turned out fabulous and has been enjoyed by both vegans and non-vegans alike.

The book is very user friendly, marking recipes as nut free, gluten free, etc., and also providing variations and substitution suggestions at the end of each recipe. There are recipes for everything imaginable--from cookies to muffins to bread to pie crusts to scones--and I love that there are both sweet AND savory options. This isn't just a *sweet*/dessert baking book--some of my favorites thus far are savory!

This is a cookbook you will be thrilled to have added to your collection--a true must have!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful crunchy apple chips!, February 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are delicious and are a great price. Buying in the larger quantity makes these apples more affordable (although still a little pricey) and I love that they are organic. I had been looking for a crunchy dried apples (as opposed to the chewy softer dried apples sold at my co-op) and these are perfect--crunchy and sweet without and added oil or sugar. You won't regret your order!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for your Cookbook Library, January 19, 2011
For anyone wanting to eat healthy--vegan or not--this cookbook is a necessary addition to your cookbook library. Packed full of healthy, great tasting, easy to follow recipes, this cookbook will make you forget you are cooking "healthy" and just allow you to focus on and enjoy great tasting food!

Along with being vegan, I also avoid gluten and refined sugar, and I have no problem cooking out of the Happy Herbivore Cookbook. From frittatas to scones to dips and sauces to burgers, every recipe I have made has been delicious. You must buy this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A book for everyone, January 8, 2011
This book is wonderful. It is divided into sections by what you are looking to substitute, and before the recipes (which are awesome) it lays out why you would want to substitute said ingredient and how to do so. The authors give various options for substitutions and then give an example of HOW to "veganize" a typical recipe based on the ingredient(s) in question.

I have been a vegan for 12+ years, so I really wasn't all that interested in how to substitute things in recipes. I was interested in the recipes, and they don't disappoint! The Cheesy No Cook Sauce is worth the cost of the book alone! Everything I have tried so far has been delicious. And, even though I have been a vegan for a while, I still read the "substitutions" guides with interest and was reminded of and learned a few things, so experienced vegans shouldn't discount the book because they think they have been there done that. This book is perfect for both newbies AND experienced vegans alike!
