I like this book for many reasons:
1- The recipes are very easy to follow
2- The recipes i have tried so far taste very good
3- There is a picture for each recipe
4- I love lentils
5- The color code for time of preparation and item content is extremely useful
6- The book is well organized
What I liked less is:
1- The price but still it is worth it
2- Maybe some salads recipes or some raw recipes with lentils (sprouted?)
3- It is hard to find chickpea flour (make it yourself)
I highly recommend this book and i wish, she writes more of that kind. I also used her website to read some additional useful notes for the recipes.
It's really challenging finding a cookbook like this--vegan, wholefoods, and soy free. Our family isn't vegan, or even vegetarian, but we really limit our consumption of animal foods, and of soy. This book is well laid out, with tons of photos, and my husband and I have liked every single thing we've made. Our kids love all the desserts (naturally), as well as a lot of the main dishes (and we've got a picky eater or two). Favorites that we've made over and over include Potato Lentil Bake, Refried Bean Enchiladas with Cheesy Sauce, Chocolate Self Saucing Pudding (oh my), Two Lentil Dahl, Party Pies and Chili Con Lentils. There's a chapter on Seitan that looks great, but we haven't used it at all because of wheat sensitivity in the family. Despite that, this is still one of my favorite cookbooks ever.
A few comments regarding the fact that the author is from Tasmania (I think): The oven temps are in ranges (like 320-390degrees), I guess that's how ovens are set up elsewhere, but I just hit for the middle temp and have had no problems at all. Also of note, "lentil" encompasses all beans here.
Really a great whole foods resource.
It does contain several recipes using lentils.
But it is not a book only - or even primarily - of lentil recipes.
