I'm thinking about buying this book. Does anyone have it yet, if so, what do you think?

I bought it and am returning it. They have a recipe in there that includes eggs! It's for a mediterranean burger, and when I saw eggs listed in the ingredients list, I thought it was a typo, then I saw it again in the prep for the recipe. I've been meaning to email them about their grand faux pas but haven't gotten around to it. Flipping through it, I thought it initially was a decent cookbook, and I haven't made anything from it, but then I got Urban Vegan and UV mesmerized me. Everything Vegan didnt.

I received a review copy from the publisher and am posting a full review on my blog tomorrow, so I'll link when I have it up. A few things, though:

-I've contacted the publisher about the mistaken addition of an eggy-burger thing (mentioned above). They said further printings will not have the recipe. (I know that doesn't make it better now.)

-The preserved lemons are awesome.

-I made the kiwi jam and love it. It's going to be great for gifts.

-The cashew "goat cheese" and almond "feta" from a VT issue last year are both in the book. That's a big plus for me, since I love both those recipes... but they're also online.

As far as the other stuff I made, I am torn. I want to like it, but a lot of the recipes are so basic they're almost bland. The morning glory loaf falls apart even when it's cool, even though the flavor rocks. The red pasta sauce is really, really basic. But, on the other hand, there are some great preserves in there (fig spread, the kiwi jam, etc.) and a nice recipe for homemade ginger ale that my husband loves.

Would I have paid for the book? No. But checking it out at the library is probably worth it for the little "extras" like the preserved lemons.

I was wondering about this book, too! Super weird about the eggs.

It sounds like it might be good for a new vegan cook who isn't very adventurous. Are the directions explicit?

That was the impression I got. The directions are very clear, and the ingredient lists aren't too long. Most of the recipes only call for a few ingredients, and most are easy to find. (For instance, the kiwi jam is 3 ingredients: water, kiwis, and sugar.) Also, even though I wasn't super impressed with some of the recipes, they all look beautiful on the plate.

Thanks for the review. I may end up buying the book, since I am pretty new to vegan food, though I've already accumalated quite a collection of cookbooks. And since I just started subscribing to VT, I don't have any of the recipes, and would much rather have a cookbook then go searching for them online.

I just picked this up. Today, a soup. The Roasted Apple-Potato Soup ended up rather..runny and bland. I'm going to try the ultimate Vegan Lasagna soon...

The only recipe I really liked that I tried was the kiwi jam, which is glorious. Of course, the nut cheeses are also good, but I tried those when they came out in the magazine.

I absolutely love the Moroccan Pumpkin and Lentils, but I bake the pumpkin or squash first. It makes the squash a bit mushy to cook it with the lentils, but I hate chopping raw squash that much, and when I did the recipe as directed, it took about as long as it takes to pre-roast a squash anyway.
