The Natural Vegan Kitchen March 15 2011
By Diane Hoffmaster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There is a big difference between eating a vegetarian or vegan diet and eating a HEALTHY vegetarian or vegan diet! You can find vegan candy bars and cookies but that doesn't make them any healthier for you than regular candy bars and cookies! The aim of The Natural Vegan Kitchen is to teach you how to live a healthy vegan lifestyle using simple, natural ingredients like whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables. It is a blend of vegan and macrobiotic cooking which focuses on wholesome, unprocessed foods.

I may not be vegan, but I do understand the importance of reducing our dependence on animal products. I am a firm believer that not every day's menu must include meat! I am aware of the nutritional needs of my family, especially the protein requirements of my children so I was particularly drawn to the Main Dish and Casserole chapters. There is also a chapter on Beans that had a number of high protein dishes that could be used for a main meal. Other chapters such as Breakfast, Salads, Soups, Deserts, etc had several recipes that were already very familiar to me, with some modifications. Some of the ingredients in the recipes I had never heard of before but there is a nice glossary at the end of the book to explain what they are. Many recipes like the Blueberry Salsa and the Breaded Cauliflower needed no explanation at all!

The author did a very good job of explaining the steps in each recipe and included nutritional information for each one.

I found it interesting that the author chose to use grape seed oil in her recipes. She explains her reasoning in the introduction. I would probably choose to use olive oil, only because I am more familiar with it and it is always in the house. She does note that the use of grape seed oil is completely up to the chef!

All in all, a very good introduction to cooking in a natural vegan kitchen!

By JenCR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is full of easy, yet nutritional recipes that will change the way you cook and eat. If you are looking to make positive, healthy changes in your life and the environment, this book is for you. I've already tried many of the recipes in this book and my family is enjoying them. You do not need to be a vegan to eat these dishes, you just need to care about doing what's right. The best part is that you will LOVE the food! I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

The Natural Vegan Kitchen March 27 2011
By founder Healthy Dining Chicago - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this day and age when cookbooks and recipes are a dime a dozen, it's refreshing to find a recipe book like The Natural Vegan Kitchen. Printed on paper with 100 percent postconsumer recycled content and processed without chlorine, this book is as good for our planet as it is for our well-being. The animal compassionate recipes call for ingredients most health-minded cooks have on hand already and includes important nutritional information for each recipe so often missing from other cookbooks.

The Coconut-Curry-Carrot and French Onion Soups were two of my favorite recipes in the book and I look forward to making them again soon.

Those new to vegan cooking will find the glossary at the end of the book extremely helpful.

New, interesting recipes for vegans and everyone! March 18 2011
By quirky book lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am biased because I'm already a fan of the author's cooking, having had the opportunity to take her cooking classes. I'm so glad to finally have a cookbook that encompasses her ingenius recipes, cooking techniques, and ingredient combinations. The recipes are inventive and smart; they might call for one or two ingredients you don't normally keep around the house, but once you do you'll use them time and again. A great book for anyone whose tastebuds enjoy deliciousness.

Refreshing Vegan Cooking! May 7 2011
By J. Paschal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book offers a wonderfully refreshing change of pace from many other vegan cookbooks inn that all the recipes truly are healthy and use the most natural ingredients around. I have to honestly say, that before receiving this cookbook, I had never used umeboshi vinegar, kuzu, and kombu in my cooking,and was a bit intimidated by using some things I'd never heard of nor used. I love how Christine begins the book talking about keys to macrobiotic principles for enjoying a long, healthy and happy life. It is important to eat in harmony to balance the body's yin and yang. The recipes offered in The Natural Vegan Kitchen are some of the healthiest vegan meals/dishes that I've ever prepared. Her version of "Enchilada Casserole" (pg.134) was one of the best ones I've ever had or made, and comes together in a matter of no time. No need to add the optional chopped seitan as the casserole was delicious on it's own. The "Seitan in Mexican Gravy" (pg.136)was also quite tasty too, paired with a side of greens to compliments the dish well. Christine has you covered with recipes for breakfast, appetizers, nourishing soups and stews, salads, dressings/sauces, grains, beans, main dishes/casseroles, delectable vegetables, and even some tasty desserts ranging from an "Apricot Mousse" to a "No-Bake Berry Pie with Amazake Cream". The Natural Vegan Kitchen has got you covered! This book has definitely earned its keep among my top vegan cookbooks!
