Unlike Alone in the Kitchen with an Eggplant, this is really just about the food. And because it's what people in a very particular circle eat, there's not a lot of variety to the recipes. But they do sound tasty and almost all sound very quick/easy/affordable. A remarkable amount of blue cheese appears. As a bonus, it looks like doubling a solo recipe to feed two is significantly easier than starting with a recipe for 4-6 and cutting it down. You have to be willing to take all the sweeping generalizations with a grain of salt. It's in Madison's favor that she's well established as a Bay Area vegetarian author, so all the judgmental side comments are more 'go figure' than distractingly irritating.
