Some useful ideas but also a few recipe failures like " brown gravy." Maybe the measurements were printed incorrectly? Definitely a more hippy style of vegetarian cooking vs. a style like Mark Bittman's and recipes drawn from a cook who likes to add a little of this and a little of that which can mean you have to pull out a lot of different ingredients. A good number of recipes first require you to make something else to add like tofu sour cream which can add some time to your meal prep. "Betra Feta" is a favorite.

I first picked up this book from my local library. I was absolutely enchanted with the loads of interesting information the book offers. I had to buy the book! It is definitely not out of date. It provides information and delicious recipes that will transcend generations. I recommend this book to people who are vegetarian, vegan, carnivore, care for the planet, want to eat healthier, and enjoy amazing food! Best purchase made.
