    Sob!!! I really want to find a vegan recipe book that works for me and my family. Fun list of excuses but still does not contain my excuse... I AM ALLERGIC TO LEGUMES AND TREE NUTS!!!! I am always so hopeful with vegan recipes because I have a daughter who is allergic to eggs and a son...

    Every recipe in this book looked amazing, and every reason you could have for not at least trying more plant-based recipe is addressed. While I don't plan on becoming vegan, I really enjoy how these recipes make me feel more creative (and healthy!) in the kitchen. ...

    Seriously, everyone she read this just for the bbq roasted cauliflower recipe alone. Oh. My. Gosh. I've made it three times now and no longer need the recipe, so I guess I can return it to the library... ...

    This one was getting hyped a lot awhile back, but when I looked at a few of the reviews it seemed like a lot of people were saying there's too much fake meat and cheese in it, and since I mostly tend to avoid those things (not having been big on meat even before I decided to quit eatin...

    I cook and bake a lot. You can tell she put a lot of time and effort into these recipes. Also the photos make you want to try every recipe. It's not a quick cookbook. But the meals taste like you went out to eat. So it's totally worth the work. Personally I think the veggie burgers are...

    Okay... I'm not vegan nor do I intend to be. I checked this out because I eat a vegan-like diet a good portion of the year for religious reasons. If I were considering being a vegan, this book would not sway me. When I look at vegan recipes, I always discard the ones with fake food. Bl...

    Kristy Turner addresses all of my biggest excuses about why I can't go vegan, so I applaud her for that. Mostly good rhetoric, however she does tend to use the term "animal flesh" way more than necessary. I did mark a few recipes to photocopy (since the copy I read is from the library)...

    What a fantastic and informative read. First I must clarify: I love reading cookbooks...every...last...word. This book not only offers 125 vegan recipes but some useful information. I am in the process of becoming a vegan so I was appreciative of this information.And yes there are pict...

    I have made quite a few of these recipes and I have not been disappointed! The only thing that didn't turn out wonderful was my lentil loaf and I believe it was because I did not cook my lentils long enough and did not have enough flour to my loaf but other than that, I'm very very hap...
