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.
