Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! A 'must have' book This is a well used book in our house! An excellent book for someone transitioning into plant powered foods. The recipes are easy, flavourful and taste great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to cookbook! This is BY FAR my absolute favourite cookbook!! In the early stages of my transition from vegetarian to mostly plant based (vegan), all the other cookbooks out there were so discouraging with their long lists of often very obscure ingredients complicated instructions.This book changed everything for me! Not only are the recipes simple AND healthy...but everything I have tried in this book has been delicious! I cook almost exclusively with both of Lindsay Nixon's books and I am definitely a HAPPY herbie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My most used cookbook EVER! I love everything about this book, it's so simple, yet delicious and it's healthy! Can you get much better?! NO. I've tried quite a few vegan cook books, but usually give up after a few recipes as they are too complex or not as healthy as I'd like. I've loved every recipe I've made and can't wait to try them all. The vegan cheesecake and chocolate cupcakes have made others buy this book as well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must in every kitchen!! Delicious recipes! Easy-to-make, quick, no hard-to-find ingredients required. The recipes I made were all loved by omni and vegan alike (especially the Fettucini Alfredo, Potato Salad, Black Bean Enchiladas and Portobello Steaks) This is now one of my top 3 favourite go-to vegan cookbooks. A must in every kitchen!!
