This is one I wish I could own, and I might borrow it again. I often make one dish meals, sometimes eating them with a grain such as quinoa or brown rice, but often making a full meal in a single pot. This book gave me some great ideas, and quite a few of the recipes look worth making. I really like the international flavor. In many recipes there are many ingredients I’d want to substitute or change. The lack of photos is the main reason why it gets only 4 stars from me. The only photos are sing ...more

If people are programmed to eat with their eyes first, why do some cookbooks not have pictures? That has always been a confusion to me. Give me big glossy pictures and I am more likely to purchase the cookbook and attempt the meals in hope that they come out looking and tasting the way they were intended. Cookbook authors put in a great deal of work into getting a final product out so give the reader pictures; let us see what they have strived so hard for.

OK, that rant is over, but now we are on

I love eating vegetarian/vegan, but I still struggle with coming up with enticing entrees off the top of my head. For this, I normally turn to cookbooks, like Let Them Eat Vegan!: 200 Deliciously Satisfying Plant-Powered Recipes for the Whole Family or How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. I've tried many other vegetarian/vegan cookbooks, but find many to be uninspired. This book, however, is up there with the magic that is Burton and Bittman!

So far, we have made:

I've made about two dozen recipes from this book, and they are all super easy and super tasty. Because you are often cooking the grain in the pot with everything else, there are some longer cook times, but a lot of it is inactive.

The only hitch I ran into was cooking brown rice in the same pot as the rest of the food. Brown rice takes a million years to cook, so I never really got it 100% cooked. In the future, I would just cook the rice separately to make things easier. But cooking quinoa in th

I originally gave this just four stars and I'm not sure why - perhaps because there are no pictures. However, I've been cooking my way through this, have made several of the soups and chilis, and it is just outstanding. Every dish has been delicious. The BBQ sauce was indeed 5 minutes and amazing, and the "healthy butter" is better than I ever could have imagined. I just finished the Greek spinach and rice dish, and discovered that white beans are fabulous. Now I'm in the middle of the Tuscan be ...more

There are so many delicious-sounding recipes in this book that I wanted to love it, especially when "One-bowl" and "One-Plate" are in the title; I'm always looking for easy, make-after-work recipes. But unfortunately, these recipes are not that accessible; there is always just one extra ingredient that I would never have on hand, like liquid smoke, or there are odd mixes of spices and vegetables that I would not have just sitting around. If you're willing to work hard for your "One-bowl" dishes, ...more

The title is a little misleading, since technically any number of dishes you can fit on one plate could be considered a "one-plate dinner". For example, I'm not sure how pizza fits into this. I was expecting simple recipes that only dirty one pot or pan (because honestly I'm that lazy), so making pizza starting with the dough seemed like way too much work. I'd rather just chop the veggies and tofu and throw everything into the pot with rice and cook it up and voila: a true one-dish meal.

And mos

This has become one of my favorite vegan cookbooks. I've had a lot of vegan cookbooks over the years, and favorite recipes from each one, but usually I pick a handful of recipes from each that I love. This is possible the first cookbook that I've wanted to try almost all of the recipes. So far I've made Spicy Soba Salad with Edamame and Cucumber, Hoppin' John with Kale, Jamaican Jerk Tempeh and Vegetables, Couscous with Edamame and Chickpeas, Thai Peanut Bowl with Tofu and Asparagus (but I used ...more

Another good Robin Robertson cook book. Had a range of recipes in it. Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because a lot of the recipes seemed pretty close to one another. They had but a difference on one or two ingredients. Plus it was very bean heavy. I love beans and all but mix it up a bit. Other than that, I got a bunch of useful recipes to incorporate.

There are a lot of very diverse recipes in here, but many call for a food processor, so while they're simple recipes they require a fair number of gadgets you may not necessarily own. No photos and no dessert recipes.

Has a lot of great, high protein, heart healthy recipes. Including substitutions for oil. A lot of the recipes look complicated, but I'm considering purchasing the book. I checked it out from my pubic library.

Tem receitas muito boas e simples de se fazer. Já fiz várias e ficaram sempre bem. Só não dou 5 estrelas porque o livro não tem fotografias.

I have a hard time using cookbooks that don't have a lot of images to go with the recipes. I want to know what the food is supposed to look like.

This looks like a great cookbook. There are lots of easy recipes that I can't wait to try. I love chilies, curries, soups, and casseroles, because they are easy and simple to make. I wish this cookbook had pictures, but I knew it didn't before I purchased it, so it's okay.
