    I was browsing through this book in the bookstore yesterday and just had to purchase it. The recipes all look fabulous! This morning for breakfast, I made the Crepes with Raspberry Sauce – so simple to make and so delicious to eat, as well as the Breakfast Scramble, another yummy treat.

    I was especially drawn to this cookbook, because, although it’s vegan, you don’t miss the no-meat recipes at all. There’s such a variety – Coconut Banana French Toast, Black Bean and Tomato Soup, Warm Spring Rolls with Spicy Sesame Sauce, Polenta-Crusted Eggplant Parmesan, Jenny and Heather’s Mini Lemon Cheesecake Bites with a Strawberry Sauce…I could go on and on. One of the particular draws to this cookbook was the lack of “fake meats” used. They are very rarely utilized in a meal, instead relying on fresh produce, legumes, and whole grains.

    Almost all of the ingredients listed are found in regular grocery stores, which is also a big plus. And there’s nutritional information included in each recipe, so you can stay your skinny self or make yourself one.

    This book is a must buy. I am looking forward to cooking my way through the book and doing “stay-in” meals instead of “take-out”, for once!

    As a long time vegan chef I have lots and lots of cookbooks. I often end up developing my own recipes but I have to say, “This is hands-down my all time favorite cookbook!” The recipes are delicious, easy and they even work as written! The main changes I’ve made is substituting maple sugar for cane sugar (I don’t eat cane sugar) and cutting down on the Earth Balance a smig and adding oil rather than Earth Balance in a couple of recipes. Other than that I’ve hardly changed a thing. I’ve made about 50% of the recipes at this point and I couldn’t be happier. One more thing, the pictures are beautiful and inspiring — I just love a book with pretty pictures ;-). Like I said above, I was really hesitant to buy this book because I have lots of cookbooks but now I’m buying it for all my friends! This is a MUST HAVE!

    I’ve tried three recipes from the book so far, and I’ve really enjoyed them. I had the coconut/banana french toast, spicy vegetable curry, and curried pumpkin soup. The only one I modified, by adding more spice to, was the curry; I happen to like mine really spicy. The recipes in this book are more “sophisticated” than what was available in the other two books. I did enjoy them, but this book relies a lot less on meat analogs than the previous ones (but there are still a good selection of them). It’s more of a whole foods cooking style. Very good chapter on sustainability too. The tone is still sassy, but I never had a problem with that. I’m looking forward to trying the asian macaroni and cheese; it sounds delish! BTW the french toast was incredible.
