I've found in this book hundreds of recipes of grains, vegetables, pasta and sweets, all cooked without dairies or eggs (it's not easy to find good vegetarian books in which a big quantity of milk and eggs isn't used!). Last but not least: the results are perfect, following step-by-step the advices of the author, and you can eat like in a restaurant, saving money and, above all, taking a great care of your health and of your dearest's, simply by choosing natural and tasty foods, avoiding the armful ones. Thank you Lorna!

My parents bought me this book when I first made the transition from meat-eater to veganism. It's frustrating to look through "healthy" vegetarian cookbooks and find recipes with a generous handful of cheese, a couple cups of buttermilk, and a couple of eggs. No wonder non-vegetarians like these books... they're barely different from what they're eating now, nutritionally speaking. But Lorna Sass has written one in a million. It's healthy and so good! And it's got everything. Wonderful soups, all the basics- like hummus, and fantasitc whole grain desserts. Whenever we need a good recipe for a special occasion or want something that we don't take the time for everyday- we consult this book. In addition, it provides great information on all the ingredients. While most of the recipes require too much effort for everyday cooking, it's definitely a book that belongs in everyone's cookbook collection... vegetarian or not. And believe me- it's been approved by all the picky meat-eaters in my family!

Vegetarianism is "in." Everyone has written a cookbook of new recipes or adapted American favorites in an attempt to ride this wave. There are, however, some writers and lovers of food who merely write what they know and eventually the world catches up to them. Lorna Sass is one such writer, and THE COPLETE VEGETARIAN KITCHEN is one such book. I have spent a number of years searching for gourmet vegetarian/vegan cookbooks that embrace the fact that food (i.e., vegetables) have flavor and pizazz. They don't need to be smothered in cream sauces to be eaten, nor do they need to be steamed to "dente" to be healthy. Each of Lorna Sass' recipes liberates the vegetable from this inglorious past without effort. Her recipes never fail, and are easily adaptable for those of us with food allergies. She even explains how to make substitutions. There is also a glossary that defines each grain, vegetable, and seed used in her book. Throughout the book there are hints for storing food, nutritional facts, and information that helps make the transition from vegetarianism to veganism simple. For me, however, the true test is the dessert section. I turn to this section first and look at the ingredients, the mixing of flavors, and for originality. Each of her desserts is a winner! What's even more amazing. ..they never have that health-food-store taste. I can bake a cake without eggs, an old-fashioned pudding without sugar (and eggs) and satisfy everyone in my house. Oh, this is the best cookbook to have on hand, if only for the sugar-free/egg-free/milk-free desserts. Buy it, I know that you'll like it.

Grabbing the overused, stained-in-a-cliche-way cookbook, my close friend is excited to cook something created by Lorna whom he calls "a goddess." He is crazy about her unusual, earthy, easy-to-follow, healthy recipes. She has seduced him into buying his first pressure cooker--which he loves dearly, and into cooking vegan meals. The recipes are diverse and delicious, also. If you've got an All-American craving for franks and beans, Lorna's found a way to make tofu dogs fulfill your dreams. For those who love Asian stir-fries and noodle dishes, there are simple recipes using the zesty and rich flavors of sesame oil, ginger, tamari, etc. To impress your friends, use one of Lorna's rice casserole dishes. Throw a bunch of ingredients into the pressure cooker, wait a few minutes, and you're ready. The best thing about Lorna's book is the cross-referencing potential. You've got some quinoa, some greens, some pinto beans, and other random ingredients, but you don't know how to blend it all tastefully or how to cook quinoa. Check out the bean and grain cooking time charts, and it's very likely if you search the index you'll find something calling for at least a few of the ingredients you need to use up. Where does quinoa come from anyway? The "Ingredients A to Z" section of Complete Vegetarian Kitchen will give you a history on quinoa, and tell you how to store it! Whatever Lorna journey you embark on with your pressure cooker is going to be a delicious one, a meal that comes to life from the pages of her cookbook. I wish only there were photographs!

Before I had purchaced this cookbook, I had never considered buying a pressure cooker. Now I have 2! There are so many incredible tasting, low fat recipies here, I never run out of possibilities! I have since bought 6 more copies and given them to others as gifts.
