Our thoughts

The main reason why I decided to review this book is because we know people who are vegetarian/vegan and we wanted to have them over for supper.   When I received the book I was a bit overwhelmed because I desired so much to make a good meal for them.   But we are not vegetarian and we decided to find something that would be good for both vegan and non-vegan foodie.   We went with tacos – chicken for some of us and beans for others.   I based my beans tacos on the recipe of spiced lentil tacos.



This cookbook will unlock the mystery of vegetarian or vegan cooking.   It will provide you all the guidelines to cook a fabulous vegetarian or vegan meal to your guests or yourself.

The book will provide plenty of information on how to prepare vegetarian/vegan meals, what kind of beans to use and so on.  It will introduce you to all the lentils, beans, chickpeas, peas, and flours that can be use to cook these meals.   It contains numerous recipes for a wide variety of meals like breakfasts, brunch, snacks, spreads, soups, stews, salads, sides, patties, tacos, sandwiches, braises, curries, bakes dishes, casseroles, and desserts.   Each recipes also has the nutritional value of the meal.  You will also find numerous photos throughout the book which presents some of the recipes in it. 

This book is perfect for creating delicious meals for your friends and family who have decided to follow the vegetarian/vegan way of life.  It would also be a great book for you if you desire to eat more vegetarian or vegan. 

And in case you are wondering our meal was delicious – beans and chicken tacos.    As for me I would lie to try out the black beans brownies sometime soon since they look so delicious!
