Update #2: I made the Easy "Cream" of Asparagus soup a couple weeks ago & was not impressed. I interpreted "light coconut milk" to perhaps allow for a substitution of coconut milk "beverage" (as opposed to the canned version), so maybe that was part of the problem. But I could definitely taste the can-ness of the asparagus (canned asparagus plus its liquid *was* called for in the recipe), and it just wasn't that tasty. I think I'm done cooking my way through the soup section, and although ev ...more

let me talk about this book for a minute and how much i appreciate it. i am not vegan, but do try to eat very little animal products, and it is easy to do. i have read/perused a lot of vegan and vegetarian cookbooks in my time and the things i hate about most of them are --
1) meat analogs. NO.
2) talking about veganism as if it is this crazy, wacky thing that is so awesome, but so hard to do

this book just... does it. it uses naturally vegan, common ingredients to make simple and delicious foods.

This cookbook was easy to use and the recipes didn't need any fancy ingredients

Some hits and some misses, so far. The Curried Broccoli Soup was really nice. The Baked Beans and Macaroni Casserole was kind of meh, too sweet and the fried onion topping was... not good. (But it would be easy to fix, I think. The variety of baked beans I used was more sweet than the Heinz ones I usually get. And any kind of crunchy topping would a good replacement for the onions.) The Gnocchi with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce was nice, if a bit ugly.

I think Klein relies just a little too heavily

Yes, I read cookbooks! The recipes look very tasty and mostly healthy. there are a few with white flour, white sugar, and vegetable shortening but we all need treats. I just made the Three-Bean Barley Chili. It made a lot. It was delicious!!! I didn't miss the meat at all. Next I'm going to try the stuffed zucchini and the Apple Almond Caramel Bake. Yum! These recipes will be great for weeknight and last minute meals; or when it is too cold to go out and shop for food. It's easy to be healthy an ...more

I'm giving this book 5 stars not because I think it's the best vegan cookbook ever, but because I think it's amazing for what it is - a cookbook that uses only simple ingredients that can be found in any grocery store. Everything I've made from this book has been easy to make and almost surprisingly delicious. I think this would be a great book for new vegans, people with limited time to cook, and well, anyone who doesn't want a lot of fuss but does want great-tasting food.

Reading the ebook on my Ipod Touch. Kind of a good idea--you can bookmark a recipe, easily bring up the ingredient list while at the grocery store, and buy the ingredients. Then you can set the reading device down near where you are cooking (making sure not to get it wet, of course).

I have read through most of the recipes and have actually made one, the white bean/sage dip in the appetizer section. It was excellent and all my friends loved it! I have bookmarked several recipes to try when I fee

Klein's approach to meat, dairy, and egg-free eating is a breath of fresh air and lives up to its attempts to be down-to-earth and realistic. With no lengthy passages on why one should eat a plant-based diet, no politics or soap boxes, she gets right to the heart of the matter: the food. After a brief introduction and a helpful glossary of food terms and ingredients, Klein takes us right into a comprehensive assortment of tasty-sounding recipes that can be prepared without special treks to the h ...more

I like how the book is divided up into different sections and the recipes sound great! Based on other reviews I've read, the recipes are somewhat hit and miss but I'm particularly excited to try a few (especially the ones with hummus) and see what I can incorporate. One thing I find kind of weird in any veg book is that they list salads; is it hard to throw a bunch of veggies, maybe some nuts and a dressing together? Maybe it's just me, but I think listing unique ingredients as kind of a salad c ...more

I am partial to Mexican food & this book had several yummy looking recipes without the meat or cheese that are so common & make Mexican food a challenge for Vegetarians/Vegans. I also liked that the recipes used regular foods--vegetables & legumes instead of fake this & fake that. I think this one is a keeper!

This cookbook is just exactly what I was searching for a low cost cookbook for eating plant based. I can almost always pull ingredients to make a wonderful meal from items I already have in my pantry and adding any fresh or frozen veggies I have on hand. What a lifesaver this cookbook has become for some quick scrumptious meals.

So far, I have to sat that this is my favorite vegan cookbook. I say that because you can literally buy all the ingredients listed in every supermarket! That helps especially when pressed for time or like some other vegan cookbooks, ingredients can be difficult to find; like porcini mushrooms (which was called for in another vegan cookbook). This book stays used a lot in my home!

When some of your family members become vegan, it can be intimidating at first to know where to shop, heck where to even start anything. Well, this is the best guide for a novice on how to shop "vegan". I enjoy eating vegan as often as possible, thanks to this gem amongst other motivators.

I've tried three recipes and really liked one. Another I will alter a little. The third one I will not make again. A couple of the grocery items are not as easy to find as the author claims. I had to go to AJ's for the ones not available in our grocery stores.

So far:

Hawaiian-style Sweet and Sour Roasted Pineapple and Bell Peppers: I've already made this twice in the past week, since it was delicious and pineapples and bell peppers were both on sale. Served over a brown basmati rice/barley mix.

If anyone is thinking of trying veganism this book is a must. You can find all the ingredients in any supermarket. You don't have to search the ends of the earth to find any exotic spices etc. I've tried about 20 recipes and all were easy and tasty.

I dread when my other half chooses to cook dinner from this book. I know I'm in for a casserole-type of meal involving black beans, corn and some kind of dough. Not my favorite.
