“The downfall of some vegetarian diets is a tendency to rely on white rice or pasta as the focus of the meal. After all, pasta and rice dishes can be quick, tasty, and economical. While it’s true that a little pasta or rice in moderation is harmless for most people, sometimes you can find yourself eating more refined carbs than anything else and ultimately putting on extra pounds — a telltale signal that it’s time to reevaluate what you’re eating.” — Robin Robertson, Carb Conscious Vegetarian

Three stars for information, four for recipes. The book makes a lot of claims not backed up by evidence and likes to repeat them--some have even been debunked since the book was published. The reliance on soy, agave nectar, and grains is an issue. However, plenty of the recipes contain none of these ingredients and are actually creative and seem tasty and satisfying.

I got quite of few good recipes from this book, but didn't like the heavy reliance on soy products as a sub for meat.

Some great low carb recipes. Nice use of flavors from around the world. Some recipes are similar with the only variations being the spicing and/or sauce but still full of good ideas.
