    It is so refreshing to find a vegan cookery book that uses ‘normal’ ingredients and gives sensible honest advice. I love this book. I am a fairly new vegetarian and want to go a step further and become vegan. The money I have wasted on so called ‘vegan cookery books’ doesn’t bear thinking about and none of them have inspired me to take the next step. Isa’s book is wonderfully refreshing. There are of course American names for some of the ingredients but once you’ve sussed that cilantro is corriander, escarole is endive, sriracha is hot chilli sauce and kasha is buckwheat then you’ve basically cracked it. The recipes are dilicious and are guided as Gluten-free, Soy-free and under 30 minutes which helps when you want something quick and easy to make. You don’t even notice that the recipes are all low fat because they are really tasty.
    I can thoroughly recommend this book.

    I’ve already got a couple of Isa’s books – and while the recipes are good,the layout and cross referencing drives me nuts. However the layout on this one is clean, and the cross referencing is minimal. The Hummus recipe is one of the best i’ve ever tasted (how can anyone get hummus wrong I hear people cry – well I have!), and the red wine and kalamata tempeh (I made it with seitan) is delish. Having the calorie count per serving really helps too. Only point to note is that this is an American cookbook, and needs some translation for UK users – so a tablespoon is a uk dessert spoon, arugula is rocket leaves, cilantro is coriander, shortening is cookeen or trex and canola oil is rapeseed oil. The cookipedia web site is a useful reference for translating.

    Like other reviewers I too have been glad to find a book that uses easy to find ingredients and meals that you can prepare in 30 mins or less. If you have a bit of extra time (marinating etc) then there are options for this too. The only downside would be for some the lack of photos for each recipe (this seems to be the norm for many US cook books) but it is only a tiny downside and didn’t spoil the book for me personally.

    At the beginning of each chapter Isa Chandra has written some useful tips and suggestions which are also amusing and informative.

    Being a bit of a spice lover there is plenty in this book for me to try with dishes from around the globe. Just make sure that you do a quick google for an alternative to some US names eg Eggplant – Aubergine / Collards – Spring Greens / Yams – Sweet Potatoes etc etc.

    Another book I will return to on a regular basis as I improve my vegan repertoire of dishes.
