  • I bought the book and can't read it

    Every time I open the book or press the read button, my phone just crashes and close the iBook app so I basically bought the book that I can't read. And there's no way to contact the developer. I might just delete it. Worst 7 bucks I ever spent
  • Certainly for beginners

    The Table of Contents is thorough and makes it easy to find things, but "Part 1" is just info about vegetarianism. Not only may that get annoying for those who just want the recipes, but it could turn off those who want the recipes but do like meat (it gets a little preachy). The start of the recipes section has a 14 day meal plan to help newbies get started, which is a neat little addition. All directions are simple and easy to follow, but some bits seem unnecessary (ie: "put a pitcher under your juicer"). Some recipes are only there to add bulk (for example, "frozen banana pudding" just says to stick frozen bananas in the juicer with a bowl underneath). I liked that the non-dessert recipes each had an introduction telling you why the various ingredients in that dish are good for your health and that there was a small glossary and resources section in the back. My problems with the book were that the majority of the breakfast section was oatmeal and smoothies and the "main dishes" included a ton of pasta and rice and also that there were no pictures in the entire thing (particularly a let down for the desserts). Not terrible, but not the greatest.
  • Great book for the beginner

    Great range of recipes for cooks of all skill levels. Some sound delicious and I will be trying them out on my family. Packed full of information that can be a bit difficult to read if you have already decided to become vegetarian/vegan. Also includes a full menu to use as a guide and many references.

    Are you thinking of becoming a vegetarian? If so, you need this book in your life. It is simply filled with facts that will only serve to reinforce your reasoning for joining this movement. I legitimately never knew the dangers behind my diet. I have friends who are vegetarians and everything seemed to make sense about their entire existence. I mean my friends and their vitality was made so sure that it shook me and made me reconsider my own diet. This book brought me great points about the vegetarian lifestyle and I would advise any person on planning to become a vegetarian to read this book.
  • A good learning guide for the budding vegetarian.

    The Vegetarian Cookbook for Beginners is a great guide for anyone looking for a healthier way of eating and living, but make sure you know your way around the kitchen. There are several different types of vegetarianism, so you are not limited in your dietary choices. The recipes are interesting, nutritious, and the couple that I tried, delicious.
  • Great Information!

    In addition to a lot of great information on the kinds of, reasons for, ways to go transition to vegetarian there are a ton of recipes that would be interesting in anybody’s diet. I was impressed by the great juices included in the breakfast section, the variety of ethnic recipes included, and the raw food chapter. I am not ready to exclude meat from my diet, but I am ready to try some of these ideas to expand my horizons.
  • Exceptional Vegetarian Advice

    By Carlhose
    I have always liked vegetables and have often thought about trying a strictly vegetarian diet. Although I knew eating this way could be beneficial, I wasn't fully aware of the facts before reading the Vegetarian Cookbook for Beginners published by Rockbridge Press. This book provides a lot of details, some great research, and list of benefits of eating vegetarian, and most importantly, some very delicious recipes. I purchased the book with the intention of commiting to a vegetarian diet at least on a part time basis, and after reading it, I have begun removing foods from my shelves and grocery list based on the information found here. Very well presented, inspiring, and filled with real-world advice, not just a lot of statistical information. I can't promise myself I will continue to eat as a vegetarian, but thanks to this starter book, I feel more like I will be eating vegetables on a more regular basis and I know some very good reasons for it.
  • Recipes provide good meat alternatives and are tasty!

    The recipes in this book do a good job in providing protein options and ideas besides meat, which is the hardest part about cooking vegetarian meals. I also found the grocery lists with what to replace non-vegetarian items with very helpful.
  • Impressive Recipes

    I was thoroughly impressed with the recipes in this cookbook and the use of kitchen tools such as a dehydrator and food processor. I cannot wait to try some of the soups (like Cold Avocado Soup) and the dressings and condiments (Sweet Apple Dressing, Date Butter). Not to mention the whole section dedicated to raw recipes (raw mushroom burger anyone?!) Recipes aside - this is a wealth of information. The glossary and the list of ingredients commonly found in foods that ARE NOT vegetarian (collagen, gelatin, some food coloring, etc) are extremely useful. I was also very impressed to read a detailed explanation of the benefits of going vegetarian. Did you know that we have enough grain to feed the planet --- but so much of that grain goes to livestock instead of starving communities? I didn't either until this book.

    This is the best book offering an easier transition into a healthier diet and vegetarian lifestyle. The Vegetarian Cookbook even offers recipes for each meal of the day; great for beginners and those looking to try something new. It points out great meat substitution in your meals to keep you honest to the vegetarian diet and lifestyle.
