My Vegan Bible,
This review is from: Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook (Hardcover)
Let me start off by saying my husband and I are flexitarian or semi-vegetarians. After reading the China Study, my husband felt compelled to put us on a more vegetarian diet. Needless to say I met this decision with much reluctance...UNTIL he bought this cookbook. He actually bought the cookbook for himself, but in reality I think he bought it for me. Nonetheless - I am extremely pleased with this cookbook. I am surprised at some of the negative reviews in this book. Perhaps it's because 1. They made some of the few bad recipes in this book 2. They really aren't following the cookbook 3. They're just damned picky. I own several cookbooks (non-vegetarian ones as well) and this is the one I use most frequently. I am extremely fickle when it comes too cookbooks, but this one really is amazing. Almost every recipe I've tried thus far has been fantastic (with the exception of the corn-edamame sesame salad - i'm sorry but 2 TBSP of sesame oil is just too much!). I made the "moussaka" the other day and it was a hit! Another favorite of mine is the Pear and Endive Salad with Maple Candied Pecans. Let's be honest here, not every recipe in this cookbook is going to be fantastic or easy. But isn't that like every other cookbook? The difference between this cookbook and others is that it makes being a vegetarian/vegan - FUN! I don't actually mind being vegetarian now! Let's face it folks this cookbook is full of wonderful recipes. This cookbook is up there with my America's Test Kitchen series and that's saying alot! Bravo to the author's they did a wonderful job doing a seemingly impossible tast - to make great vegetarian recipes beyond just salads!

Have you and your husband watched "Forks over Knives" (a documentary on Netflix)? If not, I highly recommend it! It mentions the China studies.
