The highest praise I can give a library-loan cookbook: I decided to buy myself a copy. It is just THAT good that I don't want to live without my own copy!

Morgan has a great sense - she has a macrobiotic vegan training, and her recipes reflect this with hig-quality ingredients. I made three recipes (usually my quota in order to rate a book) and all turned out great. The real people pleaser was her cole slaw recipe - and I plan to make more this summer for cookouts.

One thing that impressed me and

I have to say that while I am giving this book 3 stars, I did find many 5 star worthy recipes in the book. I found many recipes enticing and might borrow this book again, and try several/many of them. And as I wrote and reviewed the book, I felt compelled to up my original official rating from 3 stars to 4 stars because of the information and some recipes, and then back to 3 stars because of the absence of onions and especially garlic. They’re not in these recipes. Of course, I’d usually add th ...more

Yum, yum, yum. If you're looking to make your vegan diet even healthier, then make sure you check out Christy Morgan's Blissful Bites: Vegan Meals that Nourish Mind, Body, and Planet. Divided into chapters by the type of food or time of day and further divided by the seasons, this book is a colourful and positively appetizing look at vegan food, which won't leave you feeling unsatisfied. While you can always take a bite of one recipes either out of season, or by slightly modifying the recipe to ...more

Someone needs to write The Cynical Snob's Macrobiotic Cookbook. Until then I'll have to keep reading books that use the word 'bliss' too much.

--Greens with basil pecan sauce were bright and flavorful.

--Blissed Caesar dressing didn't taste anything like its namesake but did taste good on salad greens with pistachios, oranges, and garden arugula. (Left out the vinegar, though, since the lemon added plenty of acid.)

--Blackened Caesar tempeh wraps with sprouts, shaved carrot, arugula, and avocado ta

Cut to the chase: I love this cookbook. Ms. Morgan begins her book with helpful hints for the new vegan cook on what a well-stocked pantry looks like, tools you will need, as well as basic cooking techniques. It is arranged by season, helping one to make seasonal choices which is very important for the environment because off season foods are usually shipped from another part of the world. She also has icons that let you know which dishes are raw, gluten-free, soy-free, low or no oil, and what c ...more

Love this one. Worth five stars for the magical raw tacos alone. And also for the springtime kale salad. YUM.
Jun 17, 2012 Althea rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
All the recipes I've tried out of this book thus far have been tasty and not too complex or unrealistic for a home-cook in a hurry. I love that the recipes are broken up by seasons and the emphasis is on fresh, unprocessed ingredients (e.g. no faux meats, or pre-made ingredients). I also like that there's a fair number of raw style recipes mixed throughout. The photographs are plentiful and appealing (which is actually really important in a cookbook, to me at least). Ms Morgan has done a great j ...more

Many of the recipes in the book sounded great...if I had a personal cook and access to a really good health food store. To me it was similiar toThe Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet, in that many of the recipes had too many ingredients, too many difficult-to-find ingredients, or would take too long to make. Not to mention that my family wouldn't eat them.

Lots of great recipes in this book. I liked the following:
- Millet Mashed Potatoes
- Mac 'n Kale Salad - yummy!
- Lentil Coconut Curry - so good!
- Simple Lemon-Scented Basmati Rice
- Fiesta Quinoa Salad
- Easy Cheezy Broccoli Soup
- Lemony-Lime Hummus
- Mixed Berry Couscous Surprise - delicious!
- African Collard Stir-Fry - yummy!

Refreshingly creative easy homecooked vegan food. A nifty combo of some macrobiotic and raw plant-based principles and other tasty bits and pieces... Fresh food with flair! Food in each chapter is sorted seasonally, which is brilliant and needs to be a feature of ALL recipe books.

Same old book about vegan cooking
I like how the sections are subdivided by season. A lot of too-fancy-for-me recipes, but also a number of ideas that look good. I should check this out again when I have a bit more cooking time.

Some of the ingredients are unique and not ones I typically use which made it less likely for me to make a lot of these recipes. I am also not vegan.

Great pictures and interesting recipes. I loved the easy cheezy broccoli soup, and it even satisfied the two decidedly non-vegan guests. Would like to try some of the sea vegetable recipes too.
