I have about a dozen or so Vegitarian Cookbooks. This is the only one I actually use. The others gather dust. The only problem is really a compliment. I've used the book so much it's binding is getting broken. The book need a ring binding. In all, it's a great book. I will definitely split with the bucks and replace it someday.

The recipes in this cookbook are great. There are meals for every cooking skill level, and for almost all tastes (excluding meat, of course). The recipes don't include refined ingredients, opting instead for whole wheat pasta, brown rice, molasses, etc. The recipes are filling and delicious. Of all the recipes I've tried in this cookbook (and I've tried LOTS), there's maybe two that I didn't care for.
One of my favorite things: There's a detailed section on bread baking, which has been very helpful. (The pumpkin pan rolls are some of the best dinner rolls I've ever had.)
One thing to note is that this cookbook was written some time ago, so it can seem a bit...stodgy...at times, especially considering how far vegetarian cuisine has come in recent years. But I really enjoy classic (and, yes, sometimes stodgy) dishes, full of lentils and brown rice and the like. The barley-mushroom soup is amazing.
But here's the downside. Since falling in love with this cookbook, I've gone vegan. And there's a lot of eggs and dairy used in this book. Some substitutions are easy to make (soy milk for cow's milk, for example), but others aren't. I used to use this cookbook several nights a week, but now it's more like once or twice a month.
All in all, I recommend this cookbook, particularly for people who don't believe that meatless meals can be good. It was the first vegetarian cookbook I bought, and because of it I realized that doing without meat is not only possible, but very tasty!

Well, five years ago I went vegetarian, and BORED MY FAMILY TO DEATH! The bland meals - "UGGGGG!" Then I bought the Goldbeck book and my husband dances with me again and the kids tell me I cook better than the fav restaurant in the village.
Why this success? GOLDBECKS! This cookbook tells it all. The right way to cook any bean and the sneaky way to get even your finicky cat to eat well. Seriously, non-meat does not have to be boring. And cooking vegetarian that is delightfully flavorful can be both QUICK and CREATIVE!
If I had one vegetarian cookbook it would be this one. Good - let's give the others to Good Will and simplify our lives. Better than take out, baby!

After 11 years of hard use, my book finally fell apart! I highly recommend this one, and not just for vegetarians. This is one of the best cookbooks out there, especially the section on bread baking. Also take note of their pesto recipe. It is simply the best.

When I became a vegetarian in 1974, it was tough to find decent recipes. There were a few good cookbooks, but even the ones with tasty receipts had limitations. Many were boring, or too complex, or contained too few receipts for my liking. Then, in February 1985, I was given this book as a gift. Who would have known from the modest cover that it would become my favorite, the best cookbook I would ever have! I use it in combination with other cookbooks, as others do, but it is my foundation. I've never made any recipe from the book that hasn't been delicious. The nutritional information is terrific. I give it as a gift whenever I can. The only problem, truly, is that the binding wears out. We do need a 2008 version printed with a binder! Wouldn't that be something? I recommend it most highly.

This book is great. I am going to have to live a long life to get through all the recipies in here without overeating :-) I can't remember ever making anything from it that I didn't like.

It even has chapters on setting up your kitchen and pantry, how to generally prepare various foods (e.g. beans), cooking techniques/terminology (e.g. saute vs. frying). Once my kids a old enough to cook, I'll have them read these chapters in this book.

By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 7 2007
Format: Paperback
Trying to find a good all round vegetarian cookbook is quite a difficult task. Many of the vegetarian cookbooks I've come across are either gourmet and not really suitable for everyday meals or full of bland tofu recipes that resemble cardboard in taste and texture. Finding recipes that use only whole foods is even more difficult. I've only come across one or two good ones that had maybe a half dozen recipes that I could actually use in daily life. The rest were either extremely laborious or required fresh foods that weren't readily available in my area.

Then I stumbled across American Wholefoods Cuisine. I was intrigued with the notion of vegetarian recipes that contained all whole foods. I expected and would have been quite happy with a cookbook that gave me a dozen decent dishes to try. Therefore, when I received the book and it contained 1300 meatless whole foods recipes, I was thrilled beyond belief.

American Wholefoods Cuisine has already become one of my staple cookbooks, along with a few old standbys given to me by my mother and mother-in-law. This book has a lot of everything from quick tasty snacks that I can make in a few minutes to full gourmet meals that I can make when I'm in the mood. In between there are all sorts of appetizers, soups, sauces, main dishes, side dishes, desserts, and baking treats. All easy to create with ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.

Most importantly, the food made from these recipes actually tastes good. For the first time in my life, I can eat completely healthy and not feel like I'm missing out on something. What's more, I have an ever-expanding group of young adults that are devouring everything I make as fast as I can cook.
