I just got this from Herbivore today and it looks amazing! I was worried it might have more basic recipes as the title suggests its geared for new vegans, but the recipes look so good. I'm most excited about all the quick cheese recipes. I'm planning on making the sweet and sour cauliflower and the buffalo cauliflower with blue cheese calzones first.

I didn't realize it was out already! I am curious about this one and will look forward to reviews.

I really like her blog (I don't think I've actually tried any recipes but Kristy just seems so nice) and I hope this will make a good book to give to veg-curious friends.

Yeah, I was definitely surprised to see it! I'll have to check out her blog, too. Kristy does seem really sweet. I'll let you know when I've tried some recipes.

I have just googled it. It's such a friendly guide on cooking vegan ;). I want to spice up my food with vegan dishes so I would definitely give it a try!

I does look attractive and I like the "guide" part. But I hoped it would be a book with easier recipes for my part. Same thing for "Going Vegan" by Joni Marie Newman. I know so many people who don't cook and have trouble becoming vegan because of that. I find it hard to find books that are easy enough for them. There's "The Vegan Stoner", but that doesn't appeal to people who don't want to eat lots of junk food.

The vast majority of Vegan on the Cheap is super easy stuff - I'd recommend that one to budding vegans.

I think Robin Robertson's Quick Fix Vegan is the ultimate cookbook for new vegans. Even easier than Vegan on the Cheap, and very tasty!

Thanks for your suggestions. I like Robin Robertson's book a lot myself. Unfortunately the people I'm thinking of get discouraged by the lack of pictures.

Yeah unfortunately these recipes take a lot of work (some more than others) which is on par with the recipes she shares on her blog. I was sad to see one flop from her website make it into the cookbook. I will be a bit more cautious when testing the recipes.

The spinach artichoke soup. It is on her blog and others have liked it, so keep that in mind.

Shared my review today along with a recipe and giveaway:

http://tastespace.wordpress.com/2014/12 ... -go-vegan/

The recipe for the balsamic-maple roasted Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes was incredible. Highly recommended.

The broccoli cheddar soup was very good. It has a lot of dishes to clean up but totally worth it. :)

I just flipped through my copy of the book. I had pretty big expectations for this book given how much I love the blog, so I'm surprised to say that I'm even more impressed than I thought I'd be. I usually go through a cookbook and mark recipes that I want to try, but I literally want to make every single thing from this book. This is going to go into regular rotation with my other favorites like Isa Does It, the Oh She Glows Cookbook, and the Vegan Table.

I agree with the previous comment that most of the recipes seem like they require a little more work (though there is a "quick and easy" chapter that looks great). However, I'm in the mood to up my cooking game. These recipes are very creative and inspiring, and I can't wait to make all the things with my foodie omni boyfriend.

Anyone who's on the fence about buying this - get it! You won't regret it.

Wow, some of those sound really amazing. I don't know if I will love or hate how the recipes are organized, though.

There's a copy of this book at my local bookstore and I so want to buy it. The recipes are unique and yummy-sounding. I shouldn't really be buying myself Christmas presents though, so I am holding off.

I'm doing a giveaway of Kristy's book through December 15, in case anyone wants to enter!

http://www.olivesfordinner.com/2014/12/ ... eview.html

There's also the recipe for Kristy's BBQ Bacon Burger in the post. They were the best vegan burgers I've ever had!

Seriously, I didn't exactly feel like I needed this book in my life...

Then kidsdoc typed up that table of contents! Thanks for doing that, by the way! Now this book has shot to the top of my most-wanted list.

I have the portobello pot pie in the oven right now. I made it last week and stuck to the recipe. It was so comforting on a rainy day. Today, I doubled the liquid ingredients and added some leftover lentils and a bunch of additional vegetables that I wanted to use up before my CSA box arrives. I'm using a 9x13 baking dish with strips of biscuit dough to make a lattice top.

I think this may be my new go-to for using up extra veggies.

I picked this up from the library recently and it looks really good. I have way too many cookbooks so I want to try a few recipes from this one first before I think about buying. My only concern is that many of the recipes look very time consuming. I'm going to test a few of them out. I started with probably one of the easiest in the book. The Tofu Chevre. I absolutely love this one. I made the dried herb variation and plan to make up my own variations in the future. A keeper recipe. I do remember chev from long time ago (it was always a rare purchase) and this tofu chev has the same consistency. Its so good and creamy, slightly tangy, and I can't stop eating it. I had it on some crackers with some grapes. A perfect evening snack. Need to figure out another recipe to make - a more involved one next.
