  1. Jessica

    I find this book unbelievably irritating, but the fact that I love it anyway shows how good it is.I was in a major cooking rut and really wanted a cookbook that would transform my life the way Deborah Madison s indispensable classic Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone did years ago, not just by giving me new recipes, but by changing the way I cook, and a friend recommended this one I m definitely not some master chef and I don t want another complicated set of recipes that require fancy ingredients [...]

    I keep getting this from the library and having to relinquish it because of holds but it s worth it I finally made things from it the 3rd go round I made millet cauliflower mashsteamed greens with zesty flax dressingparsley brown rice salad with seeds misleading title this is really tabbouleh with brown rice seeds pasta with kale, caramelized onions, and goat cheese I added shiitakes to this marinated beetsdijon mustard marinated tempeh okay, but only if you re heat the tempeh before using vanil [...]

    I wouldn t normally put a cookbook up as currently reading, but this one is huge and gorgeous and has me immediately wanting to curl up in a big chair and just read and take notes while I generate ideas Finished this late last night It was a nice break from the health focused whole foods plant based dietary manuals cookbooks of the Campbell Esselstyn McDougall Brenda Davis Forks Over Knives variety and the other extreme which I keep encountering the irreverent tattooed punker vegan Thugs with a [...]

  4. Cassandra

    It s almost a meditative cookbook I come back to it over and over just to look through Loved the zucchini salad and the butternut squash lasagna was a hit at our holiday dinner last year.

  5. Karen

    3.5 starsThis is a comprehensive guide to vegetarian vegan cooking, covering everything from how to stock your pantry to recipes starting at breakfast ally he way to desserts.I love the emphasis on fresh whole foods A few of the ingredients are difficult to find in my area and I felt like a lot of the recipes were under seasoned for my taste but that can be easily adjusted on your own.I make pasta with kale all the time but had never thought of adding caramelized onions so the Whole Wheat Fettuc [...]

  6. Linda B

    4.5 starsBeautifully illustrated vegetarian vegan cook book The cookbooks contains useful info on plant based staples i.e how to soak cook beans, grains I didn t realise I needed to soak grains overnight due to physic acid nuts sprouting seaweed types etc How to avoid plastics The majority of the recipes are vegan and where Amy uses goat cheese this can be easily veganised by using Almond Feta instead thekindcook s Almond feta

  7. Radina Valova

    This book is a fantastic resource, whether you re new to home cooking and clean eating or already have some healthy habits but want to up the ante Amy Chaplin offers an in depth look at how to stock your pantry and how to prep the pantry basics legumes, grains, etc One of the things I like best about the book is that most of the ingredients she references are easily accessible to most shoppers one of my biggest pet peeves with healthy eating books is that authors seem to assume that you live in [...]

  8. Stephanie

    I chose this cookbook for the vegan ideas and beautiful layout photos and words and for the clean, end results Recipe can be quite in depth, but the finish was spot on Delicious I look forward to trying recipes.

  9. Caitlin Bales

    This is my favorite cookbook by far Amy talks about ingredients, the pantry, and recipes in a sustainable way I love reading someone who admits to eating the same thing for breakfast It s refreshing to see what real world chefs eat themselves instead of gourmet once in a while dishes.

  10. Juli Anna

    Overall, I think this cookbook succeeds at serving its purpose it is full of nutritious, whole food recipes mostly vegan that will make you want to treat your body well Some of the recipes have unusual flavor profiles that I look forward to incorporating into my cooking corn with black sesame, cauliflower with shiitakes However, for my part, I can t imagine eating like this most of the time, and I eat pretty well to begin with Many of these recipes seem like side dishes and certainly wouldn t fi [...]

  11. Alice Marsh-Elmer

    A perfect, super appetizing manual style cookbook that provides ease of access to best practices for incorporating whole foods into your diet and your kitchen Seriously, I just pre ordered it.As a bit of a foodie and a bit of a workaholic I enjoy reading about food tons and, often than not, am unable to follow through on all of my grand schemes to cook differently when I get home, exhausted and starving, forced to stir something up that s edible for dinner and I revert to my old habits To be fa [...]

  12. Amanda

    Overall, this book is a well crafted manual of incredibly healthy and beautifully photographed recipes The pro s far outweigh the con s However, there are a few issues that prevent the five star rating Several of the recipes call for ingredients that I cannot obtain, despite living in a mid sized city with decent grocery and specialty stores The author lives in NYC anyone living in a city closer to this size will probably be able to find these ingredients Also, with a few exceptions e.g Soaked G [...]

  13. Kirra

    I love this cookbook Everything about it Fabulous In saying that, I have always been a keen cook So sourcing unusual ingredients is exciting for me I am someone who plans, and makes a lot of time to cook with friends and family In other words am obsessed with cooking and food If you are someone who finds cooking a chore, have limited time etc you may find this book frustrating I have found that her use of soaked bean, grain etc have actually saved me a heap of time and money And when soaking thi [...]

  14. Megan

    everything looked healthy and hearty and fairly delicious if i was into egg less desserts, or using spelt millet chia seeds everywhere, i would definitely be into this of my main problems the long lists of ingredients, which tended to include esoteric ingredients hello, ume plum vinegar without any recommendation of where to find it or any subs the reader could ostensibly research this on their own, but isn t it the author s job to encourage in my mind, a major part of this is removing as many o [...]

  15. Pat Murphy

    Ok, this is another cookbook I enjoyed it very much for a couple of reasons The author takes the time to tell you how to setup your kitchen for her kind of cooking She shows a passion for her kind of cooking as well She is a proponent of all natural, good nutrition It is hard not to get your heart in this with her as she makes this style of cooking so enchanting She goes with natural the flow of seasons summer winter etc and believes in using products from nearby A big naturally sustaining consu [...]

  16. Julie H.

    This cookbook would make a fabulous gift for any vegetarian on your gift giving list For other folks, it s got some great stuff esp solid advice on stocking the vegetarian pantry and sauces such as harissa and chimichurri that are eaten anywhere along the dietary continuum including welcome items in any kitchen such as blackberry cornmeal muffins, French lentil soup with rosemary, squash, and rainbow chard, or crispy smashed baby potatoes with cap garlic yogurt dip as just a few examples While s [...]

  17. Carol Turznik

    I bought this book for my vegetarian daughter and son in law last month just as a little gift after finding it on s Best of the Month list Last night she came over and told me that nightly she picks up this cookbook to read and review recipes rather than reading her fiction books, she loves it so much She told me that she has made several dishes for friends and everyone raves about them I d say, I hit a home run by buying this book for her

  18. Dana

    I was sooooo excited to get my hands on this book due to its fantastic reviews It is a gorgeous book and Amy s story seems fascinating Sadly, this book is full of recipes that feel pretty impossible to me, even though I would consider myself to be a fairly experienced cook Many ingredients are pricey and or next to impossible to procure easily It is too bad because I would love to branch even further into vegetarian cooking.

  19. Andrea

    If I could give this book than a five star review, I would I am not vegetarian, but this is my go to cookbook when I want incorporate grains and vegetables in my family s diet Her soup recipes, in particular, that use water as opposed to even a vegetable stock are absolutely delicious and dinner party worthy You won t be disappointed with this addition to your cookbook collection

  20. Mrspam4ever

    What a beautiful book from cover to cover I cannot wait to try some of the recipes, but I will have to wait because I cataloged it into my library collection it was checked out before it made it to the shelf I was so lucky to win this giveaway I know it will be a asset to our collection

  21. Nicole Gulotta

    Amy Chaplin makes wholesome ingredients accessible and beautiful She makes a convincing case for simple preparation methods like grain soaking something I ve started doing enthusiastically , and especially for vegetarians or people who enjoy eating lots of plant based meals, her recipes will truly inspire.

  22. Terri Jacobson

    An excellent guide to the principles involved in whole food cooking Detailed explanations on building a pantry and exactly what is involved in vegetarian and vegan cooking Many great recipes The illustrations are beautiful.

  23. Rhonda

    Got it at the library and have almost read every tantalizing recipe However I can not renew it and fees are accruing so back it goes and I will have to get back on the request list to make some of these delightful dishes.

  24. Regina

    A beautiful book with helpful tips on stocking a whole foods pantry features basic recipes you can use to create a week s worth of meals Many of the recipes do look complicated, but this book will be worth a second look when I have time to devote to cooking.

  25. Megan

    Checked out from library.d quite a bit, liked all the pantry stocking information Need to look at it to try some recipes

  26. Sara

    Beautiful photos and the paper quality on the book was wonderful to sit and read I did like most the recipes although a few seemed a bit impractical if you have a busier home life.
