I love this cookbook. While I am not an avid cook, I am becoming more focused on eating in a more healty manner. This cookbook has great recipes that are fast, easy and taste fabulous. I liked it so much I bought copies for my friends. I highly recommend this cookbook for those looking for healthy alternatives. No skills required.

For people who have never had an appetite for the kitchen, this book is so wonderful! It tells you how to put your kitchen together, what basics you need and it's everything you can find at a mainstream grocery store as well as healthfood stores.
I have a bunch of cookbooks and it seems that even when you follow the directions to the last drop, it almost never seems to turn out right. I have not had that experience with this book AT ALL and the dishes I have tried are absolutely delicious. I never knew cooking without everything we are so used to (dairy and meat) could taste this good. You will be in for a treat with this one and I can't wait to buy copies for my friends!

Every dish I've prepared using recipes in Vimala Rodgers' newest book has been a delicious success. I started with the cholcolate brownies and 'Sara's Mexican Salad' which are both a big hit with my family's teen-agers. My refigerator now boasts a supply of dressings and dips always ready for a snack or for use in other recipes.
I intend to use every recipe in this cookbook; this will take a while because I keep finding a new favorite to make again and again. Every meal I've made using Vimala's recipes has given me increased energy and vitality.
Background nutritional information and the many recipe variations provide so much more than the 101 recipes promised in the title.
And I especially appreciate the light-hearted comments on how the recipes came to be.

Very misleading title, but overall good buy July 4 2007
By J. Bachman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
First, let me say that for the resources and cooking tips alone this book was worth the buy. Plus, it's a nice looking book. Tantalizing photos, glossy pages - a sharp presentation.

That said, the title is SHAMEFULLY inappropriate. As well as dangerously misleading if you have hungry people on your hands and/or somewhere to be (and to think the title was the sole reason I bought the book - "quick & easy" cooking). This book is NOT about quick meals. It's about wholesome, vegetarian (well, vegan really) cooking for the family. That sounds good, right? So why the ruse?

One example, of many, is the "Earth Burger" recipe where the "Preparation Time" is printed as "10 minutes." Quick & easy? I'd love to see someone mince & saute both onion & garlic, chop parsley, grate carrots, cook rice, mix in another six ingredients, and then blend everything together in a food processor in just 10 minutes. I really would. Not to mention the shaping/preparing/cooking of the patties, preparation of bread/condiments, etc. The cooking instructions do, however, offer this precious tip: "QUICKLY BLEND all ingredients".

Press that button harder, sucka!

10 minutes? I'm lucky if that burger is hitting my mouth two hours after I started cooking. 30 minutes for "Tofu-chiladas"?! Try 3 hours.

"Who is Vimala Rodgers?", the author's bio asks. Isn't it obvious - she's the FLASH of course. Inadvertent exposure to gamma rays gave her superhuman veggie chopping/sautéing/cooking powers!

My advice: ordinary humans should plan to triple or quadruple the printed cooking times. If you want "quick & easy," look elsewhere. And as far as the recipes go, there are but a few winners in an otherwise tepid corps. What a surprise, however, was the wealth of general information on vegan eating/cooking. It made an interesting read and I still keep this book on hand for reference.

"Who is Vimala Rodgers?" indeed. That should be the title of this book. The first chapter opens with the author QUOTING HERSELF (the introduction opened with a quote from Hippocrates - that's one hell of a transition), the recipes are named after the author's kids, and the cooking instructions are filled with anecdotes from the author's family life. It's a baffling ego-trip for someone who is a no-name in the cooking world. But then, that's what makes this book different from most: personality.

BEST EVER BOOK for Vegans and Regular Vegetarians Alike June 26 2007
By W. Jay Gibson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is relatively concise and full of recipes that look & taste delicious. Additionally, I am recommending it because it is unlike any other cook book I have for several reasons: First, it is written by a woman who is not a recipe-book writer by profession, but instead a mother of 8 children who has been a vegetarian for 35+ years. As such all of the recipes have been created & refined by her (some with input from her children) and there seem to be few to none of what I would call `filler' recipes that you find in the books of people who work in test kitchens and churn out bizarre things that look good in photos and seem easy to make but turn out to be anywhere from bland to outright bad.

Additionally, Ms. Rodgers is very knowledgeable about the healing properties of foods, combining foods, etc. and reading the wealth of information she provides before, after, & in-between the recipes (albeit concise enough to peruse & learn from with ease) could enlighten even the most zealous of health nuts. Among this info:

women, meat/dairy, & osteoporosis; why to always eat raw salads before (not after) a meal, details about the evils of aluminum, why not to use cornstarch (and alternative thickeners), fruit combinations including but not limited to: always eat melons alone, eat raw fruit 30+ minutes before or after a meal but never with vegetables/grains, etc., what kinds of combos produce intestinal gas, why apple cider vinegar is the only vinegar the human digestive tract finds agreeable & how all other types actually interfere with the digestive process, hidden sources of MSG (she is adamant about Always Read your Labels), why you should Always buy organic peanuts (if you buy nothing else organic, because they are rotated with cotton which is the most heavily-sprayed agricultural product & they tend to absorb these residues up to the point where they can actually become carcinogenic), how to keep pasta from clumping while boiling, what foods are acid-forming (body doesn't like) vs. which are alkaline, why, if your soy cheese is made with casein (extracted from milk & used in the manufacture of wood glue) you had just well not buy it, that the highest mineral content of vegetables lies just under the skin, why not to eat iceberg lettuce, why to eat spinach raw & never cooked, tricks for ripening a rock-hard avocado, why you should NEVER use/eat canola or cottonseed oil, how to make delicious flavored vinegars of your own, that `the grain-and-dairy combination is one of the least-friendly-to-our-body -combinations we can create,' why you should never ingest/cook with/etc. water from the `hot' tap, apple cider vinegar as a low-cost and effective (more so than water) vegetable wash, why yogurt/dairy & fruit together hamper digestion, why you should not eat raw fruit after a meal, thinking it is the `ideal dessert,' how Chocolate & THC (in marijuana) have almost identical effects in the brain (also contained in Michael Pollan's book, The Botany of Desire The Botany of Desire: A Plant's-Eye View of the World, which I also highly recommend) and a wealth of other information.

It's short & to the point enough that you can read all the text & recipes in ~2-3 hours and almost everything in it seems very good & different from your standard vegetarian cook book fare (I have 10+ vegetarian cook books and this is by far the best). Also it is 100% vegan except for the fact that she is a huge fan of clarified butter--ghee--which she explains about & how to make & which I'm sure could be substituted with a truly vegan alternative in almost if not every case. Another reviewer thought this (i.e. the relative absence of eggs & dairy products) was a negative aspect of the book, but honestly (although I am not 100% vegan) I appreciate the added heath and conscientiousness of her animal product-free recipes, and find them a welcome change from the excessive amounts of cheese-based vegetarian `meals' offered by typical cook books.

This is The Best vegetarian cookbook I have found--and this woman is a published expert on Handwriting! One of these West-Coast Renaissance women. You should definitely get this book.

Mmmm,
Jay
