Most gluten-free cookbooks (especially niche cookbooks, like those for vegetarians) have one or two good offerings and then tend to offer mediocre basics. As any gluten-free person knows, the basics require constant improvement, because they're often not very good. This cookbook was given to me by a friend who said, "Hey, a GF [gluten free] cookbook. I forgot I had this...want it?" I didn't have high expectations.

I was wrong. The recipes are easy to follow and very specific. I tried two recipes...more

This book is crammed with over 225 recipes for the GF vegetarian and vegan. At the beginning of each recipe is a description of vegan, egg free, lacto-ovo or dairy free making this a wonderful resource for anyone who is casein intolerant or vegan. I do feel the layout is a little dry with no pictures of the dishes, but this sacrifice is great for filling the book with some of the most delicious recipes I've made from a cookbook. Favorite recipes include Mexican style stuffed zucchini, spiced bas...more

My go-to gluten-free cookbook. Everything I've made from this book has been delicious!

When it comes to cookbooks and more so vegetarian cookbooks I like things that are basic and easy to find in the grocery store, nothing that will send me all over town looking for an ingredient. Which this book does and if it doesn't its easy to swap out ingredients without risking up recipes so this book is a keeper. I ordered it online so I can jot my own notes along the sides per recipe

Probably very useful for someone who actively courts this lifestyle. For someone just looking for variety in they way I eat, not so much. A lot of these recipes require mayonnaise, which turned me off right away. No pictures either, which is a bummer as I am unfamiliar with many of the dishes.

Some recipes I tried from May 2013 menus:


* *** Mexican style baked potatoes - gluten free, p. 116 - we weren't crazy about this
* Mexican style egg tacos - gluten free, p. 90 - we really liked these!!
* *** Indonesian Style Warm Bananas - gluten free, pg. 177 - this wasn't very good either
* *** Baked vegetable pakoras, gluten free, p 26 - yuk
* also going to make gluten free English Muffins - see English Muffin note

Much of the reason why (as an omnivore) I keep coming back to Donna Klein's vegan cookbooks is her books' refreshing lack of substitutes -- no TVP, no tofu, no brewer's yeast paste that supposedly tastes like cheese. So, to find this book filled with recipes with substitute-ish ingredients like "corn spaghetti" (which is some kind of corn-based pasta?) and "gluten-free tortillas" was a HUGE disappointment for me.

I bought this book to test out my new tablet computer. One reviewer mentioned it being primarily vegan recipes. It is definitely NOT. The author relies heavily on dairy, eggs, and various pre made items. If I had bought a hard copy of this book, I would be returning it. If you have multiple dietary restrictions, there are better books out there.

I try to be gluten-free and I am vegetarian, but come on- this book is really for vegans and offers NO good recipes with cheese! I just can't live that way. Very disappointed.
Marla Glenn
Really, really useful for me and my family! So wonderful to find some new ideas. The kugel was a big hit.
Leigh Ann
Quick options for the gf-vegetarian. Tasty, yes. Most of the more appetizing recipes are vegan.
Mell
Some rockin' recipes. A great gift from my friend Margaret.
