Great gift book

Friends keep asking me what to get for someone who has just started cooking or turned vegan. Hands down, this is the one and only book I recommend. I bought it four years ago and still use it weekly. It has fool-proof cornbread, hummus, split pea soup, tacos, masoor dal, Thai noodle salad, oatmeal cookies---all the vegan stand-bys. For breakfasts, the scrambled tofu is good, though I had bad luck with the french toast and sourdough pancakes. I really appreciate the nutritional information provided for each dish. The pantry-stocking pages are excellent, as is the overview of nutrition and veganism. For beginners, the book's chief asset is its brevity: my first vegan cookbook was too big, and it took me way too long to sift through it and plan the week's meals. This has everything you need for months of great cooking, without much fuss. And its wide pages lay relatively flat, which makes it easier to use in the kitchen. A must for the new vegan or cook in your life.

Really great!

I just bought The Peaceful Palate about a week ago, and I've already used it several times. I love buying veggie cookbooks and collecting recipes, but this one stands out. I can make most of the recipes in it just using the ingredients I already have in my kitchen -- I do have a well-stocked pantry, but that's still unusual. I would recommend this book for beginners, busy people and those who sometimes just forget how easy it can be to throw together a healthy meal (like me!).


This is the best cookbook I own! I have dozens and dozens of veggie cookbooks but I use this one over 90% of the time. Her recipes are easy to follow and yield wonderful results. I particularly recommend the Green Velvet Soup and Truly Terrific Tacos. Both are family favorites at my house. In fact, I always make a double batch and freeze some for later.No mater if you are an experienced vegetarian chef or you've never eaten a meal without meat, this book is for you.

Great book!

This was the first cookbook I found upon deciding to become a vegan; I consider this to be a stroke of great luck. Ms. Raymond does a fantastic job of setting you up for healthful cooking: She helps you stock your pantry, explains foods which might be new to a beginning vegetarian, gives nutrition information, and included a cornucopia of easy and delicious recipes. She does not rely on attempts at mimicking foods which contain animal products, but supplies foods which stand easily on their own two feet. Even I, a kitchen klutz, get excited every time I open the book. A must for any kitchen, vegetarian or no.

The best vegetarian cookbook we've found.

As recent converts to a vegetarian lifestyle, my husband and I were desperate for nutritious, low-fat, delicious recipies. After looking at countless veggie cookbooks, we found The Peaceful Palate. Every recipe we've tried has been wonderful! So far we've given away at least twenty copies of the book to friends and relatives who have expressed an interest. We should apply for a volume discount!
