5.0 out of 5 starsThe nuts and bolts of vegetarian home cooking.27 July 2000
By Book Wraith - Published on Amazon.com
Almost all of the old family favorites are represented. The instructions are clear and concise, and the food is delicious. Be prepared for some inventive new spins on some the classics (hoppin' john with olives, or collard greens with ginger and chili pepper)that might be a bit intimidating. But be brave, the adventurous will certainly be rewarded with a collection of meals you and your family will enjoy for a long time. The vegan brownies alone, are worth the cost of the book.

4.0 out of 5 starsA great first step for Vegans!18 Jun 2000
By Phil Czternastek - Published on Amazon.com
I recently decided to take the wonderful leap from being a vegetarian to a vegan and I went to a friend of mine for a cookbook to borrow so that I had somewhere to start from. The book that she lent me was "The Vegetarian No-Cholesterol Family-Style Cookbook" and I have nothing but great things to say about it. The recipe for eggless Mayo is a must along with great ideas for holiday dinners. Wonderful ideas for deserts and the Mushroom Barley soup is what they should've had upon Mt. Olympus (if Hera had made this maybe Zeus would've stuck around the house more often). Although it is a little small in terms of variety it is a great place to start from for anyone who is vegan to someone who'd like a healthy meal now and again.

2.0 out of 5 starsNot vegetarian - Vegan8 Feb 2013

If you are looking for a low cholesterol vegetarian cookbook this is not the one. The recipes are vegan. They use no eggs or dairy products, which kind of makes sense in the low-cholesterol way, but then they shouldn't advertise it as a vegetarian cookbook.
