I usually read my cookbooks cover to cover but this one is a 612 page book and I read through just enough of it to evaluate the recipes and see how they were laid out.

I am very fond of this cookbook author’s recipes (this is Robin G. Robertson) and the large number included in this book was too tempting to pass up, even though with the more than 100 all vegan cookbooks I already own and all the recipes available via the web and friends, I certainly already had access to many more recipes than 1,...more

When it comes to vegan recipes, this is definitely the best cookbook I have ever come across. The range of recipes is wonderful, covering foods for every meal, (breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snack), and every occasion, (simple comfort foods, up to elaborate holiday meals). I really love the variety of recipes for the same food, for instance, instead of just having one lasagna recipe, as many vegan cookbooks do, this one has eight!

There are only two things that I can think of that would...more
An amazing collection of wonderful looking dishes with readily available ingredients! I am returning this book to the library and ordering one for myself today. I hope I won't need to give it a lower rating after I try some of the dishes. I've had success with Robertson's recipes in the past and am excited to try these. I like that this one has more common ingredients than one of her other books,Vegan Planet, which I also own. When I bought Vegan Planet, I thought it was going to be more like th...more
This is my go-to recipe book, with hundreds of varied recipes that are unique, healthful, and delicious. It makes me look great as a cook!

So far, after 8 months of cooking with this book, I've only found one erratum: rosemary scones as it is written is a disastrous combination of sweet and savory. I think it got muddled up with the wonderful blueberry and almond scones on the next page, and I've had to create a new ingredient list in order to bake something palatable. There may be more errors, b...more
I'm not vegan, not even vegetarian. Perhaps I'm an "accidental vegetarian" since I don't find meat all that interesting to prepare or eat, not compared to the wonderful world of grains, legumes, veggies and fruits that beckon.

But I'm a sucker for a cookbook on sale. This doorstop was 50 percent off at Queen Anne Books and it promises years of fun now that it's mine!

Lemon-kissed linguine with garlicky white bean sauce; pistachio-pear couscous salad; coconut jasmine rice and edamame; seitan broche...more
During grocery list making, more often than not I draw a complete blank on what to prepare in the upcoming week. This book makes it super easy for my brain. Almost literally, you can open up to a page and there's dinner for Tuesday (or any other night of the week). Some recipes may be similar to others I've made before, but there's almost always a new variation on it. At the very least you get ideas. It's like a low-tech Pinterest search for recipes (although, sadly, not the yummy looking pictur...more
I got this book from the library on the recommendation of a vegan friend.
I tried a bunch of recipes from this book but am not enamored with it. The ones I chose seemed bland, and had a similar cooking style -- throw the list of veggies in a pot and cook -- that didn't take into account differences in cooking times for ingredients. I like Terry Walters Clean Foods better for the taste and the instructions.
This is our go-to cookbook. All of the recipes are fantastic! In fact, we had scones from a recipe in this book for breakfast today. Although it's vegan, Robertson does not shy away from using "substitute" foods like vegan margarine, so even omnivores would find the food tasty.

If I could only choose one cookbook, this would be it. Hundreds of delicious, varied recipes with accessible ingredients and helpful information regarding various foods central to vegan eating (e.g., tempeh). Introduced me to so many new items in a v usable format.
I love this book! I am blogging about it now! I am going to make all of the recipes and write about them!! Follow along! We can do it together. The few recipes that I have made from it, have been wonderful!
Jacqueline Hager-Bodnar
This is my absolute favorite vegan cookbook. This book is loaded with so many great recipes. If you only have one vegan cookbook on your shelf, make it this one. Love this book!
Rebekah Nichols
Endless supply of recipes my personal favorites: tempeh pimento cheeze ball, chocolate and walnut farfalle, macadamia cashew patties, and rotini remoulade
So far this the third cookbook I have read by Robertson. The recipes are superb.I haven't found a dud in the bunch yet.
What a great cookbook! I borrowed from the library and it was time to return it. Think I'll be buying a copy to own.
I need to recheck this from the library- she has lots of good ideas.
A lot of good recipes, some I hadn't even thought of before.
Wow, I love this cookbook!
