Good Message, Okay Cookbook
on May 26, 2014
I have a lot of vegan cookbooks including this one. I got it a few years ago when it first came out, and while I still have it, I don't use it often. A macrobiotic diet isn't my preferred choice of how to eat, although I really like Alicia's approach to writing this book and her message of eating healthy plant based foods. The recipes I did try were good but not exceptional. Apart from the tabbouleh salad (my favorite dish in the book) nothing really stood out as something I would make often.
Also some of the ingredients she uses are expensive and difficult to find. Not my favorite book, but not a bad addition to a vegan recipe collection.
