From Library Journal
The authors' McDougall Program has been the basis for half a dozen other cookbooks, a weekly television show, and a line of McDougall's "Right Foods" sold nationwide. The program is basically a diet extremely low in fat and high in starch, and this latest book offers quick recipes for converts (although preparation time is 15 minutes or less, cooking times are often longer). While cutting back on fat is probably a good idea for most Americans, the McDougalls at times seem to verge on fanaticism as they discuss "disgusting, damaging fats and oils" and describe how manufacturers "use unfamiliar names to disguise harmful ingredients" so that "fats and oils are hidden" (they don't mention that those same ingredients labels also give fat and saturated fat percentages). And it seems strange that there are no nutrition analyses of their own recipes. Buy for demand.

The husband-and-wife McDougall team runs a California clinic specializing in weight loss through pursuit of an ultra low-fat, meat-free diet. Their newest cookbook encourages people to follow their regimen by providing recipes that readers can prepare in 15 minutes or less. Most of these recipes use commonly available ingredients. Even the occasional call for a specialized item, such as silken tofu, no longer presents a problem, since the new nutrition movement has made soy products ubiquitous. Since these recipes eliminate all animal products, vegans will find the book useful, too. An appendix lists commercially processed foods that meet the McDougalls' nutritional standards. Although the authors hold up their diet as a virtual panacea against modern Western civilization's diseases, they do not offer nutritional analyses of the individual recipes, which makes the book much less useful for those with diabetic or other illnesses.

Note that it does not say "Gourmet Cookbook." It says "Quick and Easy Cookbook" in the title, which is accurate. Over time each recipe could be tweaked, and made more gourmet if desired. Also, curry powder does a lot to make cooked vegetables yummy.
On the website if you click on the McDougall Newsletter and go to January 2008, it offers "McDougall Favorites". These include the following: Bean Burritos, Bean and Corn Enchiladas, Lasagna, Tofu Tacos, Baked Penne Florentine, Creamy Pasta Primavera, Peanut Dressing, Falafel Wraps, Reuben Wraps, Bean Soup, Garbanzos a la King, Brazilian Black Beans and Marinated Tomatoes, Pumpkin Muffins, Pancakes. Fourteen recipes. Not necessarily all quick and easy, but apparently all proven winners.
We have found we can simply blend a raw apple and use it anytime an oil substitute like Wondaslim, pureed prunes or apple sauce is called for. This substitution alone makes it easier to have the basics in stock. She states that for whatever mysterious reasons, beans always taste better when cooked from scratch. Even so, you will need to have a variety of canned beans on hand.
Also, they encourage you to keep it simple and make your meals monotonous. That is a huge time saver! The crock pot is an invaluable tool.
Right now we are enjoying eating more simply and filling up on starch and fiber. Already seeing results!
This fine book will NOT be gathering dust!
I won't duplicate all the positive remarks, other than to say they are all true. Although I've eaten vegan for 30 years to avoid the breast cancer that got my mom, aunt & both sisters, I always choose easy, simple recipes on a daily basis. I'm too busy to do more complicated or advanced recipes.
These recipes gives you all the nutrition and energy you'll need to run marathons. Piece o' carrot cake! ;)Eat Vegan on $4.00 a Day: A Game Plan for the Budget Conscious Cook
I've been cooking out of this book for 2 weeks now and really see this as my Monday through Friday after work cookbook.
