    This is one of a few vegan (also vegetarian friendly) cookbooks I have found that has simple instructions and basic ingredients, as well as quick-meals that are also super-yummy dishes. We are a vegan family that works a lot and I do most of the cooking. This book has been SO helpful with healthy, simple, quick and yummy meal-making. I usually like images in my cookbooks too, but this book is so nicely layed out and the instructions make enough sense that I am ok without pictures.

    While not a vegetarian I like to have a variety of ways to eat veggies. This has so, so many. I look forward to making at least ten of the ones in this book, maybe more if I find I like them! So excited!

    This one gets one star. First of all, no pictures. A cook book must have pictures! Pretty pic on the cover, but none inside. Second, a whole lot of microwaving. A microwaved potato? Blech! Third, too much soy. Soy cheese? blech. I understand it could be made with dairy, but she just seems so gung-ho about soy everything. And TVP? gag! Maragarine instead of butter. I get that it makes it vegan, not just vegetarian, but maragine is some foul stuff. No reason AT ALL to eat that. Nothing in this book This one gets one star. First of all, no pictures.

Nothing in this book spoke to me to run out to the grocery store to buy the ingredients to make these recipes.

    I wish this would have been published when I went vegetarian as a young teen. My parents could have used it. Lots of great recipes here, plus tips on additions/subtractions for various eaters. I like the "make it a meal" feature, which gives ideas for complete meals. Finally, I like the section with tips for lunch, included are many great packed lunches. **update- after having used this for a few weeks, I've found I wish the index was more comprehensive.

    Let me start first by saying that I'm not a Vegetarian, however, I've been exploring more vegetarian based options for my meals and I have to say that this book, despite the fact that there are no color photos (which I enjoy), is a great resource. It's broken down by meal type, like "Easy Breakfast Treats" and "Sandwiches, Wraps, and Schools Lunches and it's chock full of lively recipes that look tasty.

    I have a lot of cookbooks but this has become the one I open first. The recipes have easy to find ingredients; simple preparation; and the 'make it a meal' sections have great suggestions to round out many of the recipes. DH, who wouldn't eat a sweet potato even if you buried it under butter and brown sugar, loved the black bean and sweet potato chili. And dinner guests who aren't vegetarians are satisfied by the heartier recipes (or at least that's what they tell me). I have a lot of cookbooks but this has become the one I open first.

    I borrowed this cookbook from a friend last summer. At the time, I had one vegetarian daughter. Now my other daughter is a vegetarian, too, so I have become one to simplify dinners! I have tried several recipes from this book, and never been displeased. We are not the most adventurous of eaters, but I want to make sure we are getting the nutrition we need, as well as eating yummy foods. I have not been disappointed with this cookbook yet!

    Just picked this up yesterday and loving it so far. With Meghan being a vegetarian I'm always looking for recipies that maybe all of us can enjoy. There is a wealth of information in it about being a vegetarian and also about organic food. I will be trying a couple recipies today and then I'll give my full rating. I'm thinking we'll be trying the Vegetable Lo Mein and Orange Glazed tofu and Broccoli recipies. Just picked this up yesterday and loving it so far.

    This is one of the first cookbooks I began using when husband and I transitioned from a month of vegetarianism/veganism to full-blown veganism in July. As a basic cookbook, I thought it was pretty good and many of the vegetarian recipes are easily adaptable to omit dairy and eggs. I am moving on to try out some other recipes, but might come back to this one down the road.

    I absolutely love this cookbook, partially because it is vegetarian and because the recipes aren't to over your head they are actual meals that you would cook for your family(and my family is vegetarian, other than my step dad, but my sis and mom are). I really recommend it for all you veggie families out there!

    So far, the recipes I've made from this have been pretty bland - maybe, I guess, b/c they are meant for kids? They sound good and end up just being blah and mostly flavorless. I'm trying one more, and then giving it back to the library gladly. So far, the recipes I've made from this have been pretty bland - maybe, I guess, b/c they are meant for kids?

    I figured I'd look this over from the library before deciding if I want to buy it or not. ______________________________ I made a few recipes and they were good, but not enough to interest me to buy the book.

    I have lots of veggie cookbooks, but I really like this one. Almost all the recipes are vegan, and there are lots of "comfort food" recipes in here, like casseroles and pot pie and good side dishes. I have lots of veggie cookbooks, but I really like this one.

    Can't say I've read the whole thing, but it looks like a good one for feeding my whole family, even the kids. It's time to break away from Boca burgers.

    Great vegetarian cookbook. Constance even asks for one of the recipes here - a tofu and broccoli one-dish wonder.

    This is a great veggie cookbook. My super, super picky 2 year old ("I don't eat that, it's green") will even eat food from this book. This is a great veggie cookbook. My super, super picky 2 year old ("I don't eat that, it's green") will even eat food from this book.
