    I was fortunate enough to be able to take a gander at an advanced copy of the book, and I have to say the book is one of the best vegetarian books out there today.

    The foods are exciting, bold, and unlike many vegetarian cook books out there, it doesn’t try to be different for the sake of being different. Many veg cook books seem as if they are simply trying to make dishes that include as many odd combinations as humanly possible to cover up the fact they don’t have meat. One example is a pesto and carrot pasta bake that I saw in one cook book. This book has many old favorites that are updated and modified to not include meat or dairy, and in ways that you won’t miss them at all.

    Hopefully this book is the first of many that we’ll see from these authors.

    This book is great for those who want to get some variety and experiment with new flavors. The Asian-inspired dishes, the breaded eggplant with sweet tomato sauce, all really wowed me and made me want to try more. There are photos, which is nice, too, so you can check out what some of the recipes will look like in their finished form.

    I have tried many recipes and loved them all! My favorites are Italian Spinach, Baked Sweet Potato Wedges and Frozen Fudge Pops. I am not a vegetarian or lactose-intolerant. I was looking for some interesting meals and side dishes to feed my family of four and this hit the spot. My two-year-old daughter shovels veggies in her mouth like they are candy!!!

    The book is very attractive with colorful highlights of the time necessary for each recipe and other helpful hints!!! I’ll be cooking from this book forever!
