Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some great recipes! Worth a read...but typos! I have a few favourite recipes from this book (the wild mushroom risotto is fantastic) but I have noticed a lot of typos in this book. A lot. The last two recipes I made had a) bell peppers in the instructions that were not listed under ingredients, and b) two cups of cauliflower listed under ingredients, but "add remaining two cups" (should have been 1 C) written in the instructions. It can be confusing, but if you read the recipe ahead of time (as one always should) and note these typos, you can still make a good job of it. I haven't had a recipe turn out badly because of this, it's just annoying and quite frankly begs how this got past the editor.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good at a glance, not the best recipes I am a whole foods, soy-free, mostly plant-based eater and I find this book contains too many tofu recipes. Also, the meals look good in the pictures, but many of the recipes are not that simple to make (with wayyy too many ingredients) and out of the whole book there is maybe only one or two recipes I actually use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Plesant Surpise! My husband surprised me with this book on the recommendation of the staff. Truth be told I never would have looked past the cover on the store shelf but I'm so glad he gave it to me! I am in love with it, the recipes are simple with easy to find ingredients. Kim hasn't lost any of her charm in this book and it's not an in your face vegan cookbook, it's great for beginners just testing it out or someone more seasoned looking for fresh ideas. I enjoyed the addition of other celebrity vegans/health freaks and their recipes. Over all a great vegan addition to any healthy eater's kitchen.

Editorial Reviews

Sophie Uliano, author of Gorgeously Green: 8 Simple Steps to an Earth-Friendly Life "I absolutely love how Kim has made vegan cooking so simple and delicious.  This cookbook has me wanting to try my hand at every dish – YUM!"944 Magazine, November 2010 …visually stunning 291 pages filled with 150 healthy recipes that are also "good to the earth" along with vibrant photos."BlogonBooks.com, 1/12/11 “Leave it to Kim Barnouin to come up with the spiciest cookbook of the season; and we’re not just talking about taste. …Where Barnouin shines is in her easy to understand overview of problematic ingredients … her analysis of everything from global fish depletion to the truth on organic foods is actually well worthy of serious consideration and finally proves that eating healthy can actually be fun.”Blog On Books, 1/12/11 “Leave it to Kim Barnouin to come up with the spiciest cookbook of the season; and we’re not just talking about taste. …Where Barnouin shines is in her easy to understand overview of problematic ingredients … her analysis of everything from global fish depletion to the truth on organic foods is actually well worthy of serious consideration and finally proves that eating healthy can actually be fun.” Kirkus "Barnouin gives home, beauty and style some loving in this sassy new guide.Using the same formula that made vegan opus Skinny Bitch a whirlwind success (along with the subsequent sequels), the author trains her focus on the eco-friendly household. True to her brand’s form, Barnouin’s latest dispenses disturbing information about the toxicity and overall evilness of standard household items. She warns of benzene in paint and furniture (a known carcinogen), BPA in plastics (which imitates estrogen in the body and causes myriad health problems), phthalates in nail polish (linked to cancer in lab animals) and many more. Part of the series’ appeal emerges from the author’s ability make hippie philosophies seem glamorous, and this installment is no different. She explores each topic with girly banter and a good dose of verbal lashing. Some of Barnouin’s mantras will be too hardcore for average readers, such as avoiding bleach as a cleaning product. And her advice to abandon wardrobe purchases consisting of polyester, non-organic cotton, leather, down, fur or fabric dyes will leave fashionistas with little to wear. Those wondering if any of their possessions are safe may find solace in the decidedly more mellow segments on gardening, recycling, essential oils and DIY facials. Ladies seeking an irreverent guide to an eco-friendly home will enjoy this fun primer."  Ethical holiday gift guide at Pomp & Circumstance “There are so many reasons to love author – and chef extraordinaire – Kim Barnouin. If writing the award-winning Skinny Bitch (with co-author Rory Freedman) wasn’t enough, now she’s gone and crafted my favorite cookbook to date. My copy is littered with tabs to remind me which mouthwatering recipes I want to return to stat. I appreciate how the book opens with practical tips and useful information, such as a list of The Dirty Dozen and The Clean Fifteen. She discusses buying seasonal, the eleven worst food additives on the market, and a few facts about the ever hot topic, soy. There’s an herb and spice chart loaded with info, as well as a recommended shopping list for the perfect pantry. Need I say more? Indeed, there’s more that could be said, but maybe you just buy it.”
