not enough calories  May 18, 2008
This looked great at first... but then I started looking at the calorie counts for most of the dishes. Most of the Main Dishes have less than 200 calories, some have less than 100. I don't have time to cook and eat 8-10 meals per day.
Delicious AND Healthy Recipes for those of us watching our carbs!  Mar 18, 2008
I love this book! So far I've made the Spinach Pie with Walnut Crust, Braised Bok Choy with Walnuts & Ginger, and the Roasted Eggplant Lasagne with Wintertime Spinach Pesto...all have been phenomenally delicious! And I'm not even a full-time vegetarian, just someone who wanted to decrease my consumption of animal products for health and environmental reasons. In fact, I found this book after a traditional low-carb diet raised my cholesterol almost 25 points in 6 months (Carbohydrate Addict's Healthy Heart Program - CAHHP - by Drs. Heller & Vagnini). The low carbs had decreased my weight like a charm, but for some reason my particular metabolism also reacted atypically with increased cholesterol. I realized low-carb eating had almost doubled my consumption of animal products, and I knew I had to turn things around without going back to a high-carb diet and inevitable weight gain.

Enter "Carb-Conscious Vegetarian"! It not only contains delicious all-vegan *lower*-carb recipes, but most of them are easy to make (don't be fooled by the fancy gourmet-sounding titles) and have large, satisfying portions. They aren't as low in carbs as traditional Atkins-type recipes, but don't forget to subtract the 'unusable' fiber content (which strangely is occasionally missing in some of the nutritional analyses!) - and read up on glycemic index/load. Low-carb is really based on the BLOOD SUGAR EFFECTS of different foods, not just carb grams!

I usually make one of the recipes on a Sunday (when I have more time to cook) and have convenient leftovers for breakfast and/or lunch all week, then eat a regular meat/bad-carbs/veggies "Reward Meal" each day for dinner as directed in CAHHP. After a month of this, my cholesterol has gone back down to normal levels and my weight has stayed at's all about "good carbs" and the glycemic index/load, which Carb-Conscious Vegetarian touches on (you can do lots more research on your own about this). Once CCV teaches you which foods contain "good carbs", you have the freedom and discernment to find recipes that are both vegetarian & lower-carb from other sources like internet websites or in other cookbooks.

I do agree with the review that complains about hard-to-find "gourmet ingredients", but I would estimate at least half of the recipes have ingredients that I can find even in my tiny one-grocery-store town. The rest I get on monthly shopping trips to the big city...after all, if you're serious about eating vegetarian, you're going to have to get used to buying some "unique" items! I like the fact that MSG-containing processed meat subsitutes (gardenburger, etc) are used sparingly and that the focus is on natural, whole foods. I love the international flavors in many of the recipes, and I'm so relieved to find that I can safely eat sensible portions of "good carbs" like beans and brown rice that are forbidden on traditional low-carb plans. Try it! Unless you're a really picky narrow-minded eater, you'll love it and so will your body!
Not as great as I hoped...  Mar 2, 2008
I was really looking forward to cooking the recipes in this book. I went through it and made a tentative meal plan so I could know fit together the nutrients the way that I wanted to. However, alot of the recipes called for fresh ginger, which I am now aware I am not very fond of. Sadly, this book is now sitting in a kitchen drawer and I am looking for a different lifestyle (not diet) cookbook.
Ew!  Jan 28, 2008
Every recipe I have tried thus far has been either 1) bland or 2) outright disgusting. I need to throw this book away before I waste more time and money on disastrous recipes.

Silken Chocolate pie: Nasty
Black Bean Dip: Tasteless
Skinny Dip: I cant believe this is considered food.

One plus is that it inspired some great dishes. Since I don't eat eggs, high protein breakfasts are hard to come by. I made a tofu veggie casserole (not following the book's recipe, but rather the general concept) and it came out wonderful...

but all in all this book has been a waste of money- beyond the purchase and shipping costs.

Absolutely Fantastic Cookbook!!!  Sep 30, 2007
I am not a vegan/vegetarian, but wanted to add more low carb vegan meals to reduce the amount of animal products we eat and to reduce carb intake as we are both pre-diabetic. Well, I am thrilled with this cookbook! I bought 7 vegan cookbooks recently, but I've cooked almost exclusively out of this book alone, and so far, all of the recipes have been GREAT! The 'Portobello Patties with Charmoula Sauce' recipe is out of this world! And the Cashew Creme is decadent. I loved the 'Edamame, snow peas, and bean sprouts with Ginger-lime Vinaigrette' salad. And the 'Victory Garden Stew' was excellent, although I added garlic, since I'm a definite garlic lover. Finally, I've tried every burger/cake recipe in the book with various sauces and have loved them all.

You can't go wrong with this cookbook, although some of the ingredients may be hard to find, such as artichoke hearts - but I haven't given up, there's got to be some gourmet shops out there that carry them!

If you want a cook book that contains a variety of TASTY vegan recipes, then this is the book you should buy!
