I looked over this vegan cookbook that I borrowed from the library and thought it looked excellent. I only tried five recipes: Falafel Sandwiches, Tahini-Lemon Sauce, Coconut Pistachio Rice Pudding, and Roasted Vegetable Stromboli, and Basic Pizza Dough. We loved all the recipes, however, I spent way too long in the kitchen. The Roasted Vegetable Stromboli took 2 1/4 hours to make, including cleanup. My husband said it was the best vegan recipe I had ever made, but I won't make it again because I don't want to spend that long in the kitchen. Not sure if I'll buy the book or not. They do have a list of "quick recipes" in the book, so maybe it would be worth buying the book for those.

By the way, there is an interesting website where a retired woman who travels all over the country in her motor home is cooking through this book: "My Adventures Testing 1000 Vegan Recipes" http://testing-1000vr.blogspot.com/. That website alone made me more interested in buying the book. She tweaks all of the recipes to make them use whole grains with no added oils ("McDougall Friendly"). ( )
