5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book July 31 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am not actually a vegan, but I try to limit dairy.. I like this book it does not include meat analogs which I do not like. Everything we have tried so far is delicious and tasty. I would highly recommend this book at an "everyday" cookbook. I don't own a pressure cooker, but she give you directions for both!
Great book, highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favorite Cookbook! May 9 2000
Format:Paperback
If I could only keep one of my cookbooks, this would probably be the one. A wonderful cookbook for anyone, especially (but not only) vegetarians, vegans and those who wants to eat less animal products. Delicious and practical.
This book got me hooked on using a pressure cooker (though you don't need one to use it) and I now use the pressure cooker all the time! I liked this book so much I even wrote to the author to ask what pressure cooker to get, and the Magafesa, which she recommended, is a delight to use, entirely safe, and super-fast. But you don't need to own a pressure cooker to benefit from this mouthwatering recipes here.
This book was orginally published in hardcover as RECIPES FROM AN ECOLOGICAL KITCHEN so if you are searching for that book you have just found it. I truly envy those who are about to discover this wonderful cookbook for the first time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable! Feb. 24 2009
Format:Paperback
Everything we have made from this book has turned out amazingly well. The pressure cooker versions of each recipe feature staggeringly short cooking times but we've found that the stovetop instructions are also quick and pretty easy to follow. The recipes feature a wide variety of ingredients and do not depend on soy products as so many vegetarian cookbooks do - I am not a vegetarian so I find that meat "alternatives" are usually gross, here ingredients are allowed to shine for what they are, not merely as substitutions. The index and overall design make it easy to navigate and the text is just the right size. Our cupboard of dried beans has been sitting there for years because I couldn't find reliable, thorough info about soaking and cooking times - with this book we're finally ready to start getting to them ... the included charts are perfect! Sass has struck a delicate balance between familiar and new territory - most of the ingredients were already in our cupboards but have never been combined like this. This is absolutely the best book that I have seen on the subject, it quickly took pride of place on our shelf beside The Joy of Cooking and The Spice and Herb Bible; it's become indispensable!

5.0 out of 5 stars this is a wonderful cookbook. Dec 25 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
it took a while, but after purchasing this book, i finally purchased a pressure cooker, and, can i tell you, what a valuble purchase it was! the recipes in this book are easy, healthful, and most amazingly fast. i have made soups that retain amazing flavor and nutitional value and cook in under 10 minutes. of course, you will have to buy a pressure cooker, but it is worth it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite cookbooks! Aug. 10 2002
Format:Paperback
I looooove this cookbook! It inspired me to buy others by Lorna Sass. The recipes are delicious, you can cook them in a pressure cooker (she includes instructions for that) or on the stove top. I've done some of them in the slow cooker too - they all turn out wonderful. The spices are right on target, the ingedients are interesting but not weird, everyone has raved about the things I've cooked from here. Two rhumbs up. I'm buying copies for friends as gifts as I write this (especially for friends who think vegetarian cooking is limiting) This one is terrific!~

5.0 out of 5 stars Fluffiest vegan cake I've ever tasted! May 24 2000
By Helena
Format:Paperback
I've been a vegan for 10 years, but her Lemon Poppy Seed Cake is the fluffiest vegan cake I've ever tasted. I also love the Nut Pie Pastry! Not only do her deserts taste great, I like it that she uses as much whole wheat flour as possible and not too much oil or sugar.
I own a lot of vegan cookbooks, but almost always use this book, because her recipes always taste great! The only thing we haven't been happy with is that we don't like our food very seasoned. But I found out that even when I leave out the ginger, tarragon, salt and pepper, the meals still taste great. Lorna Sass is very good at combining the right kind of vegetables to create great taste. I use the pressure cooker for most of her recipes and love it that I can just throw some ingredients in it and have a great meal when I open the cooker again! We love her Barbecue-Style Tempeh Sauce, the Chickpea Vegetable Medley, the Tarragon Risotto with Mushrooms and Leeks (wow!) all the squash dishes and I could go on and on. I have never made so many recipes from a single cookbook! I'm also getting a lot of complements from meat eaters that usually don't really like to taste anything I make! I love this cookbook!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unreserved recommendation from a reluctant cook Oct. 14 1999
Format:Paperback
If you've ever wondered how to turn grains like millet into delicious dishes, this is the book for you! Healthy, vegetarian whole food which is easy to cook and tastes delicious. As a newly married vegetarian I was nervous about cooking for my non-veggie husband, and browsed endless books looking for one which seemed to have simple yet interesting recipes, and which explained what to DO with quinoa, tempeh, and other healthy but strange ingredients. This was the best of my many buys, and one of the few books I still use every week.
