Anyone have either? Words of wisdom? I've looked through both and CF didn't grab me but CS looks kind of great - anyone have it? I think I have to buy it. It seems to be gluten free too!

I read a few reviews on Clean Food and Clean Start and CS seems to be more in line with what I'm looking for (still need to go to the bookstore). CF lost me with a muffin recipe. I know everyone loves sweets and the book is trying to capture the biggest audience but I want recipes for food and not sweets. This is why I like AFR so much.

Okay here - "free of meat, dairy, gluten and refined sugar, and rich in whole grains, fresh produce, non-animal sources of protein, and healthy and essential fats."

Clean Food is hands down the best cookbook of 2010. I haven't seen Clean Start yet but I'm guessing it rocks too. Clean Food is just what the vegan market needs, a cookbook that uses whole foods, real ingredients, no refined sugar, and foods that actual nourish you. Do yourself and the animals a favor, get this book, so you can be all healthy and stuff :)

It does have a rave review from Mario Batali on the back so that could be confusing. But yep, all vegan! One of the recipes says it's good on chicken or fish but that's it.

I kept looking at Clean Food online, but other cookbooks would always end up in my cart instead. Last year, I ended up winning a copy from one of the blogs I read, and I was super excited about it being organized seasonally. At that time, I was getting a CSA every couple of weeks, and I ended up never having the right ingredients for recipes, so it ended up gathering dust. With the new year upon us and with a few pounds to lose, I dusted my copy off and flipped to the winter section. So far, I've made the Pad Thai, the Sauteed Tempeh and Snowpeas with Coconut, and the Three-Bean Chili. All three recipes have been a winner! You guys have got to try the tempeh if you like sweet dishes. It was crazy easy to throw together, and really delicious!

I'm looking forward to trying more recipes soon.

I was looking at these at Borders today, and they both look really nice to me.

I have to add that I just tried the Seitan Shepherd's Pie this weekend. It came together really quickly - I recommend actually boiling your potatoes while prepping the rest of your veggies instead of making them ahead, but I don't mind multi-tasking in the kitchen. The recipe is a little unusual in that it calls for soy sauce and mirin, and I wasn't sure how the flavor profile would turn out. But it was delicious and hearty! The mirin gave the "meat" mixture a slightly sweet aftertaste. My boyfriend really enjoyed it too.

dur me, I thought I answered you! It does, but not a lot. 2-4 per season.

I have CS and used it for the first time today. I made the Glazed Tempeh and Sweet Vegetables. It was a pretty easy recipe. Hearty, but light with complex flavors. Sweet, but not overly so. Perfect transition dish for spring (finally we are having a temperate night!!). I need better knife skills though, chopping up the parsnips and carrots took me a while.

Excited to try more recipes after the first success!

I think I definitely need to get Clean Start. I check it out whenever I'm in Borders; it's so pretty!

I took Clean Food out of the library once, but didn't have time to make much from it. Lots of the recipes looked basic and healthy, which is good. I made something with escarole and white beans which was tasty.

Bumping this because someone gave me a copy of Clean Food as a gift recently. It seems like a pretty nice book with relatively simple and classy recipes organized by season. I'm wondering if any of y'all have cooked from it much, and if so which recipes were standouts?
