This cookbook is a fantastic resource for vegetarians or vegans looking to use a low-carb diet. I'm sure most vegetarians, like me, are well aware than our choice of diet is not exactly low-carb. And looking through most low-carb cookbooks supporting the "Atkins Diet" or "South Beach Diet" or similar doesn't offer much hope.

This book changes that. It is packed with good-tasting, vegetarian (and in many cases, vegan) recipes that are low in carbs, higher in fat and protein.

American readers should note that this is an English cookbook. All measurements are in both SI (metric) and US (or Imperial) units, so you won't have any problems there. However, some terms will require a little research. Keep a dictionary -- or the internet, or both -- handy. E.G. "Courgettes" are zucchini. "Dolcelate" is a milder version of Gorgonzola made for export to England. Don't neglect a recipe just because you haven't heard of it, because chances are, you have -- just under a different name.

And a few recipes have measurements in both systems that aren't very close, like 300 ml vs. 1/2 pint. You may wish to try them both ways, your measuring cups probably are labeled for both anyway -- think of it as a game.

The tarragon, Peccorino, almond tart is just fantastic. Even if you live somewhere in the sticks like me and Peccorino (sheep's milk) Romano is hard to find.

My final comment: I am finally losing weight since gaining it constantly after becoming vegetarian.

(Edit May, 2012.)

Still using and enjoying this cookbook.

I figured out the pint issue: An Imperial (UK) pint -- which is used in the book -- is 568 mL or 20 Imperial ounces. A US pint is 473 mL, or 16 US ounces. US and UK ounces are also slightly different.

The Vegetarian Low Carb Diet by Rose Elliot is excellent. To follow these recipies will bring kitchen creativity into your life and will begin immediate weight loss. Since beginning I am loosing 2 kilos per week which to me is just great as I NEVER feel hungry.

Also I am diabetic, before starting the Vegetarian Low Carb my sugar count (Australian) was around a horrific 18 to 23. After a few days on the diet it dropped to between 8 and 10.

My advice to all diabetics ...Chuck out the carbs. Now!

I am recommending it to everyone!

Variety of recipes for all meals as well as snacks. The recipes use European measuring units and some of the vegetables have different names than what we use in the US but most kitchen scales have metric units indicated and a quick Internet search identified the vegetables. Preparation techniques are fairly simple. Even in the Midwest I had no trouble finding most ingredients at the neighborhood supermarket. This low-carb food plan works very well for weight loss. The first few days are tough until you get comfortable with dietary changes but easy after that. I really noticed being much more alert all day following this plan.

I like this book for all the different vegetarian dishes. I am not vegetarian but enjoy eating a mostly vegetarian diet. This book has been helpful providing alternatives to the standard carbs most vegetarians eat.

I won't eat stevia and can't eat soy or tofu, so I have to modify many of the recipes in this book which makes it nearly useless to me. If you can't or won't build your diet around these things then it will be useless to you, too.

It's difficult to manage carbs as a vegetarian. This is a great cookbook to help me with the nuances of the healthy lifestyle I have chosen. Easy recipes which taste good!

A very nice book with current dietary options with healthy grains, greens that allows people to decrease carb intake yet maintain protein intake. I work in a weight loss clinic that sees a fair amount of vegetarians. Very helpful!

This book was a big let down I wish I had never bought it. There are no pictures of the food at all and the indexing is rubbish. Not very user friendly.

Some of the recipes I've tried are delicious and I have used them when I'm cooking for special occasions but she uses so many high fat items like cream and cheeses that make the recipe very nice but are obviously dangerous (for your weight loss and potentially wasteful if you don't use them) to have them hanging around in the fridge afterwards when you're only using 2 or 3 tablespoons in your recipe.

It's definitely an English recipe book as a lot of the ingredients would be readily available in the UK but not so much other places. Most of the ingredients are not the normal things you would have in the cupboard so you need to prepare for these recipes in advance.

Not good for anyone who doesn't eat dairy products as a lot of the flavour and protein content comes from dairy.

This would be a good book for a seasoned Vegetarian who doesn't mind a cook book without pictures. Someone who lives in England and likes cooking a lot with easy access to a large range of vegetarian ingredients and likes entertaining all the time - then you would use this book often. Not great though as an everyday source for the time challenged cook.
