Delicious recipes with loooong lists of ingredients. Not for a spontaneous cook: you need to carefully plan which recipe you're going to cook, do all the shopping required for that recipe in advance, and then block off some time to carefully craft your selected dish.

E.g. "Simple Rice Bowl"

-4 cups cooked brown basmati rice (see p. 3 for instructions on cooking rice)
-1 batch Tahini Sauce (see p.98 for instructions on preparing the Tahini Sauce: 6 additional ingredients + food processor)
-8 tsp tamari
-2 carrots, grated
-1 bunch parsley, chopped
-1 lemon, cut in wedges
And, it is typically served topped with Marinated Tofu (see p. 90) or Marinated Tempeh (see p.89).

And this is the SIMPLE Rice Bowl :-)

For whatever it's worth, I made it, and it was absolutely delicious, but very labour intense... ideal for a restaurant, but a little impractical for a weeknight supper at home :-)

Having said that, the dishes really are delicious, and worth the planning and the effort. The book itself is beautiful: glossy paper, a ton of gorgeous colored pictures...

As to the juice recipes in the second part of the book: they're surprisingly tasty and easy to make.

This book was given as a gift to 2 people who MUST eat a vegan diet. The response has been very good and the recipes provided in the book are very flavourful and have been enjoyed by many non-vegans as well.

I love eating at Fresh and own other books. These are wonderful healthy recipes to try (if you have all the ingredients available).

The recipes are quite consistent with the way the food tastes in the restaurant. I really enjoy the Buddha bowl.
