I have to preface this review by admitting that I have always been one to scoff at the many titles in the "Idiot's Guides" and "...For Dummies" book series. I suppose it's because I don't like to think of myself as either an idiot or a dummie that I would pass over these various titles without a second glance...that is up until now.

I purchased Julieanna Hever's and Beverly Lynn Bennett's brilliant THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO GLUTEN-FREE VEGAN COOKING several months ago and now that I have tried so many of the extraordinary recipes and can proclaim without hesitation that every recipe was a vibrant success, I am thrilled to give this wonderful, wonderful gluten-free vegan cookbook my enthusiastic 5 star rating. If I could I would give it 10 stars and excise the word "idiot" from its title!

Excellent vegan cookbooks abound and I have been collecting them for over four decades but when I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease about ten years ago, I began a search specifically for gluten-free vegan cookbooks and that's been disappointing. Gluten-free vegan books were simply not out there until recent years and then I've only come across a very few that even appealed to me.

I think every kitchen, gluten-free vegan or not, would benefit from having this essential everyday cookbook on the cookbook shelf. I can assure you that every recipe will be a great success and you will impress everyone who sits at your table, not only the gluten restricted but traditional vegans AND non-vegetarians alike!

I have been a vegetarian since the 70s, a vegan since the 90s, and a gluten-free vegan for the past ten years or so.

I have been a vegan since 2003, but I have learned that many vegan foods can be very unhealthy for you. Some vegan staples can contain lots of soy, sugar, wheat gluten, preservatives, salt, and oils that make them extremely toxic for your system. In Julieanna Hever's newest book, she creates wonderful recipes that are gluten-free and contain whole, natural ingredients! Her recipes are not too difficult to make and they are powerful super-foods that are not inundated with harmful, unnatural toxins.

Your body is an amazing machine that is constantly working to repair itself. Sometimes we interrupt our body's ability to heal itself by introducing foreign chemicals and preservatives that attack our system, and, unfortunately, our body spends its precious healing powers trying to fight off the toxins in the processed foods we consume. Julieanna's recipes give your body that healing power again by eliminating the intruding ingredients (like gluten) and chemicals that harm our digestive and immune systems.

Gluten seems to carry with it many side effects. It has been well-established that eliminating gluten from your diet can bring a new energy and vibrance to your body. One of the most famous cases of the power of a gluten-free diet is Novak Djokovic. Novak was always second-fiddle to Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in the ATP circuit, but, a couple of years ago, Novak discovered that he had a gluten allergy and removed gluten completely out of his diet. His body became stronger and his stamina increased, and, just after adopting his gluten-free lifestyle, he quickly overtook the #1 spot in men's tennis and has retained that title ever since.

Give Julieanna's recipes a try for 10 days and I guarantee you will start to feel the increased energy, renewing power, and resilient healing that comes from a gluten-free, vegan diet. It will change your life.

I love this book! The recipes are simple and they taste great! However, keep in mind, this is a book of HEALTHY recipes. This is not Paula Dean's deep fried donut hamburger recipes. If you are used to eating foods full of salt, oil, and sugar, you are likely not going to be used to these recipes. Your taste buds will be craving salt, oil, and sugar. If you are used to eating french fries deep fat fried in bacon grease, you are not going to likely like baked oil free french fries, right? If you want to make quick, easy, HEALTHY foods, low in calorie density and high in nutrient density, this is it.

This book is just perfect for my family! I became plant based in 9/11 and our teenage daughter must be gluten-free. I can make anything from this book with confidence, everything we have tried has been great! I often cook for guests from this book and everyone always loves it. I don't bother to tell anyone it's 'gluten-free and vegan,' because I just know it's delicious and that's all that matters! A definite must-have in my kitchen!

This is not a review on how the recipes fare because I just bought the book. There are not many gluten-free vegan cookbooks out there so I am really excited to have this in my bookshelf.

There is very little use of oils in the recipes as oils are considered a processed food and therefore an unhealthy food choice. The authors did suggest using expeller or cold-pressed oils if one opts to cook with oil. Now here is where I had a hard time agreeing with the authors: Coconut oil and fish oil are touted as unhealthy. If you do your own research you can refute this claim. But I will leave that up to you. As an Asian natural foodist and a trained chef, I am disappointed from a cultural stand point of view. I love coconut milk, coconut oil and coconut meat. I love using these in my cooking. Unfortunately, since the authors deemed coconut products with the exception to coconut water as unhealthy, you will find no recipes here using coconut milk, coconut oil or coconut meat/flakes. That is a shame. I am sure you may, at your own risk, substitute coconut milk/oil for some of the ingredients in the recipes. I know that is what I would do.

There are some interesting recipes here such as gluten-free seitan and sausages. For those of us who miss meat, or are tired of tofu, beans and tempeh, this could be something that might be worth trying. I am not sure whether they are any good, but I will give it a try.

UPDATE:
March 19, 2012.

I am disappointed with most of the recipes in this book. I gave it a shot and now this book will sit in my shelf unused. I am not ready to part with it yet, but I wouldn't hesitate to do so in the near future. In my personal opinion, this book is not for me. My kids, my husband and I find the meals either too bland or not satisfying enough. The search for a great gluten-free vegan cookbook continues! Thanks for reading my review.
