This is by far THE BEST vegan cookbook I've ever owned. The recipes are easy to follow, and absolutely delicious. I have made 8 recipes so far, and it's 8/8 for Kris Carr! As well, if you have a well stocked vegan kitchen, you should have most of the everyday ingredients listed in these recipes. The recipes are also well balanced keeping in mind the protein, iron and B12 needs of vegans/vegetarians!

BUY THIS COOKBOOK! You will NOT regret it!

I absolutely love Kris Carr so I hate to say anything negative about one of her books but I have to be honest about this one. I loved "Crazy Sexy Diet" and think she is awesome but I was a little disappointed in this cookbook. It's not one I would ever recommend to someone who is new to vegan cooking. While there are a few recipes I have tried that were excellent (Tofu Country Scramble, Warm Kale and Quinoa Salad), I find many of the recipes, especially the ones in the "main course" section, to be way to frou frou and fussy. Things like "Beetroot Ravioli with Cashew Cream Cheese" and "Truffled Edamame Dumpings" or "Tartlets with clementine Sorbet and lavender syrup" sound like something you'd be served at a gourmet restaurant, and not things I really want to tackle at home. I prefer simpler, every day, more down to earth recipes to cook at home so I rarely find myself picking up this book. To be fair, she does have a "rating system" of level #1 or #2 for level of difficulty, so it's clear that those recipes are for more seasoned chefs, however the majority of the recipes in the "Mains" sections are level 2. If you are already very experienced at vegan cooking and are into fancy gourmet dishes,like a challenge or want to try something really different, you would probably like this book, but for those of us who aren't gourmet chefs, are new to vegan cooking or prefer more "everyday" simpler kind of meals, this isn't the book I'd recommend.

This is no ordinary cook book. Kris's passion and sense of humour permeate every page. I am newb to vegan eating and have purchased several other cook books over the past few months. I am pleased with each of them but none were a pleasure to sit and read like "Crazy, Sexy Kitchen". And I'm not even talking about the recipes yet. There are pictures for almost every recipe (important to a lousy cook like myself) and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. I have only had a chance to try 2 recipes but it is obvious (having read through the entire book) that I will be cooking up many of these mouth-watering recipes for years to come. I first saw Chef Sarno on the "Planeat" documentary. I had to try his recipes from their site. They are now mainstays in my healthy kitchen.

I will be buying several more copies for friends!

Update: Get this book! Really! I have tried 6 more recipes and they are AMAZING! Easy, glamourous and oh SO tasty!

Kris Carr is a bit of a legend in the blogosphere - she is one of the first women to turn a blog into a professional career while also recovering from cancer and documenting her journey. She now identifies herself as a 'cancer thriver' and a 'wellness activist'. I'd seen her cookbook mentioned on a bunch of blogs that I read, but I was skeptical - it all seemed a little 'woo woo' to me. I was definitely wary of buying another cookbook just full of salad recipes or things that took hours to cook and called for rediculous ingredients that I would have to travel half the city for. But I kept hearing about it and I really am not one to let a plant-based cookbook pass me by, lest I miss a life-changing recipe that is healthy and tasty.

Once you get past some of the language ('wellness warriors', etc.) Carr actually writes in an engaging and accessible style and is as much of a storyteller as a cookbook author. The first nearly one hundred pages are full of tips, techniques, and information about going vegan that adress a lot of common concerns in surprisingly non-condescending or self-righteous ways. Even though I'm already vegan, the last thing I want is someone making me feel judged for wanting some coconut milk ice cream - especially when I'm picking up a book of healthy recipes. Inspire, me don't shame me! There is also a legend which can help you identify the difficulty of recipes and which recipes are gluten-free, kid-friendly, or quick to make. No doubt co-author and chef Chad Sarno had something to do with the comprehensive helpfullness of the second and third chapters which will help you use the cookbook much more effectively.

Crazy, Sexy Kitchen(ugh, I can't with that name) is full of recipes that range from the VERY easy to the bit more difficult.

The best chili I ever made and I am planning a 7 course meal for Xmas Eve!
Today I am making the lentil and chard ragout and I am sure it will be delectable like all the other recipes I have made so far.
Thank you Chad and Kris!

This cookbook is a lighthearted and refreshing addition to my library. Several pages into the book, I find that it's missing the frequent "shove-health-down-people's-throats" mentality often the backbone of alternative cuisine cookbooks. Instead, you get a more realistic approach that promotes balancing an abundance of healthy food with a little bit of indulgence. I fell in love with Kris Carr's delightful and quirky way of writing which resonates with the way I live. Well, kind of, anyways: I'm not vegan but I do like promoting a primarily plant based, whole foods lifestyle.

But what about the recipes, you ask? This time I took a different approach to reviewing the cookbook. Previously, I had pretty much made food just for myself and rated everything based on my preferences. In fear of having developed a "nutritionist's palate" (often mistaken for "bleh" food), I served these dishes to a few other people - namely, meat-loving-processed food-eaters - some of the harshest critics out there. Let the judging begin.

Farinata

This one was a pretty big hit with the girls. I was surprised because the last time I tried serving chickpeas to one of them, she gave me a disgusted look and refused to try it - we're all very grown-up at this office, I know. The first few crepes were a flop, as was warned by the authors. That got me a little concerned though because it was all I planned for lunch. I wondered if I could get away with serving "deconstructed crepes" if I couldn't get my game on. Turns out, they worked out in the end. And, FYI, I made these babies at 6 am on a weekday, so they're totally doable.
