I found this book very similar to Rose Elliot's other veggie low carb book 'The Vegetarian Low Carb Diet: The Fast, No-hunger Weight Loss Diet for Vegetarians' with some duplicate recipes. However, the extra recipes makes it well worth purchasing this book. Compared with other veggie low carb books, this one makes it very simple to understand how many carbs are in each recipe and therefore make losing weight extremely easy. I would (and do) recommend this book to those wanting to lose weight the veggie way.

I often cater for people with certain dietary needs. One of them is vegetarian, on a low-carb diet and has a wheat allergy.
The veggie bit I'm used to, but the other stuff is tricky until you get this book.
It may not say it on the cover, but this is just as useful for somebody on a wheat-free diet (though not necessarily a gluten-free one) as somebody on a low-carb diet. Since recipes containing wheat are nearly always high carb, they're not in here.
It seems like a bit of a niche product, this recipe book, but the food you make from it is just great food, like anything you'd expect from an experienced food writer like Rose Elliot. It introduces you to a few ideas you wouldn't try otherwise perhaps, but that can only be a good thing.
The recipes I've tried all turn out really well, and the food is so good that the phrase I often hear is, Why can't restaurants serve food like this when it's so easy to do?

I followed the original Atkins diet and forced myself to eat a limited amount of meat. I still lost 2 stone in 3 months but pined for vegetables and vegetarian food. So it was a revelation to find Ms Elliot's low carb vegetarian cookbook. The recipes are easy to follow and the ingredients can be found in either the local supermarket or health food shop. They are also inexpensive, unlike all that meat! I must admit that there are quite a few tofu recipes and also there is a reliance on cheese and eggs, which may be difficult for vegans. Tonight I am trying mockaroni, a tofu based version of macaroni. But it if lets me continue to achieve weight loss without the meat I'm willing to learn to love tofu!

Rose has produced something helpful here - a veggie guide to low carbing but these recipes are very basic and very dull. There is little in this book that I actually want to cook - she includes a very basic recipe for celery soup (amongst others)- onions, celery, stock and double cream - I don't need a recipe for that or for Greek salad or veg with garlic mayo.....and that's the standard of her recipes, puddings look interesting but i dont share her love of stevia - use it more sparingly than she suggests - the aftertaste can be over powering. Celia Brooks Brown does a much better job, unfortunately her low carb book is out of print.

At first I thought this cookbook was going to be the answer to my weight loss dreams. It wasn't. I've been an overweight vegetarian for 25 years (I'm 36). I absolutely love cooking food. I thought this book would broaden my horizons and my cooking repertoire and set me on the 'right' path. Instead, I felt very restricted and it felt against my instincts. I also really question whether Rose herself does use these recipes, as they are such a far cry from her traditional wholesome veggie fare.

I do feel Rose Elliot has jumped on the band wagon here. The recipes just didn't feel right. After 25 years of wholesome yummy vegetarian food, the recipes here felt quite alien and restrictive. But that's the low carb diet for you, and from experience, I've decided it's not for me. I tried it and felt terrible.

Essentially, Rose Elliot has 'developed' a vegetarian version of the Atkins diet. I bought this recipe book together with her other book which explains more about the principles and how the diet it supposed to work. I also read the Atkins books from the library. At first, I really enjoyed reading the books. I thought, at last, something totally different to try, which was almost guaranteed to lose excess pounds (you read stories of real people praising the diet and you think, hey, this is fantastic!). Well, I followed the diet for a month. I did the two week carb cleanse to start with. The first few days were tough, the next two not so bad, as it was great to feel really satisfied and not hungry, but the remainder was terrible. I was totally lacking in energy and I had a very upset tummy. The cramps were sometimes so bad, they would wake me at night. I then moved onto phase 1 and still felt I had no energy.

I had assumed it was purely veggies and the like and it turns out it requires Quorn and things I cant get here in Turkey, so it has meant I cant cook all the recipes as they are. But I might use TVP in its place :)

The Vegetarian Low-carb Diet Cookbook is a companion book to Elliot's The Vegetarian Low-carb Diet. It is exactly what the title implies: a cookbook. It is chock full of great and (for me) easy to make recipes. There are no photos in the book but the directions are crystal clear and easy to follow. All of the ingredients she uses are easily available except for stevia (an artificial sweetener. I have found that you can use other sweeteners instead IF you make sure they can be used for baking. - If this is going to be your initial Low Carb book purchase I would strongly suggest you get The Vegetarian Low-carb Diet first as it clearly explains how the diet works. - If you are looking for a general cookbook I don't think this is what you would want as ALL the recipes are Low-carb and vegetarian ... which, of course, makes it fantastic for Low-carb vegetarians. - If you are a vegan you'll also like this book as the overwhelming majority of the recipes are vegan and those that aren't can easily be adapted.
