What a paradox: a book advertising a vegan life style by a non-vegan author.
There are much better books available. I would not recommend it, I was very disappointed by the book itself.

MUST HAVE !!! 16 Dec. 2010
By Simone - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If there was a support group for people like me my introductory speech would start with "Hello. My name is Simone and I'm a junk food vegan". The tv show I did "Running Russell Simmons" did a whole segment about it. And worse, I don't know how to cook. It takes too long, I don't have the right equipment, I hated math in school so measuring cups scare me..its all daunting. Then along comes this book. Suddenly broken down into idiot (hence the name) proof steps to encourage miss take out herself to get down with cooking. And the best part? Its filled with healthy and delicious options! I couldn't be happier to have this book as my new food Bible. Let there be cooking....and cooking I will be!

A great starter book for the newbies 9 Mar. 2011
By Misfit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Newbie - yep, that would be me.

Full disclosure and please no one get all over excited and slam me, but while I am trying to get more meatless/vegetarian options into my diet I do not intend going all Vegan at this time. I'm cutting out red meats and a lot of poultry (except Turkey and that is getting sooooooooooo boring) and even in Seattle good seafood can be hard to find unless one wants to deal with fighting downtown traffic, the crowds and paying an arm and a leg for the privilege of parking. I'll pass.

I'm also not much for spending a lot of time in the kitchen so when this book showed up on Amazon Vine I was thrilled to get a chance and see what it could do for me. It starts with a really great intro outlining the basic vegan concept in simple to understand English, as well as how to stock your pantry (The Vegan Pantry Deconstructed) and purchase the utensils you'll need.

The book is then broken down into the usual sections you find in most cookbooks; breakfast, salads, soups, etc. There are plenty of tips, reminders and warnings sprinkled throughout the book plus how-to drawings when need to aid the *chef*. The book is mostly in black and white, so don't expect pics of every recipe, although there is a four page inset with a few examples (must try the Pumpkin pancakes). Some of the recipes are a bit more than I care to fuss with in the kitchen, but I've already tried the White Bean salad (very very easy) and one of the chili recipes (not bad, but I'm adding some extra heat and still simmering). I'm also eyeing the kale and white bean soup for next week's lunch and the red potatoe soup sounds rather tempting...

All in all a very handy book to have at hand whether you're just getting your toes wet like me or ready to take the full plunge into vegan eating. Enjoy.

The perfect book for vegan newbies 21 Dec. 2010
By Marisa Miller Wolfson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In this book, Alex Jamieson includes the kind of helpful info that we got in her first Dummies series book, Vegan Living for Dummies, but expands on good cooking practices and materials and includes, of course, oodles of delicious recipes. Last night I made the Darling Dal (Spiced Lentil Stew), which was super simple and yummy and even got the stamp of approval from my husband who's an Indian food snob.

She puts together a nice mix of fun veganized food favorites like Non-Pigs in a Blanket and Grilled Tease Sandwiches and healthy foods like Millet, Adzuki Bean, and Butternut Squash Stew. She flexes her mental muscles in the book, pulling from experiences having trained at the Natural Gourmet Institute cooking school and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.

Whether you're a veg-curious newbie or even a veteran vegan, this book has good recipes, smart tips and clever bits of info that anyone can appreciate.

Great primer for the vegan lifestyle 20 Dec. 2010
By Dee Long - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We've read statistics that even dining vegan just one day a week helps Mother Earth in a big way and "Vegan Cooking for Dummies" is a wonderful primer to learn how to live the vegan lifestyle.

We especially like the sections devoted to constructing a vegan pantry and how to adapt some classic favorite recipes to be healthy and vegan. Recipes are easy to follow and include "vary it" suggestions. Chef/nutritionist Jamieson also provides an excellent dietary breakdown of each recipe calorie, cholesterol, fat and protein content.

Vegan Cooking for Dummies provides an interesting tutorial on keeping a vegan kitchen and backs it up with more than 160 recipe suggestions that fit every mealpart.
