    Carb Conscious Vegetarian: 150 Delicious Recipes for a Low-Carb Lifestyle

    My wife and I are vegan. She is always trying new recipes, and Robin Robertson's new cookbook, Carb Conscious Vegetarian is perfect for us both. I love a hearty meal, my wife likes a lighter meal. Most of these recipes can be made with a serving of pasta, rice, or potatoes on the side, or mixed in, so that both of us can enjoy a healthy, and myself a bit heartier, meal. For example, the appetizers are great, because my wife will make several of them at one time, and make a side of roasted potatoes along with them (for me) and that makes a fun meal. Many of the salads involve a combination of vegetables, tofu, tempeh, etc. to be topped on lettuce leaves. Instead of putting the 'topping' on lettuce as my wife does, I put it over brown rice. The soups and stews are really delicious, but if I need a little more food that night, I will throw in some pasta or tofu cubes or have some bread on the side. The side dishes can be served with roasted potatoes, rice, or pasta. The entrees are satisfying enough on their own, but sometimes I will still make some garlic bread or pasta on the side, and I'm plenty full. The Breakfast Bites are fine as they are, filling enough for me in the morning. And the Divine Desserts are unbelievably satisfying. This cookbook is really versatile, and works great for that vegetarian or vegan couple or family who enjoy great food, a healthy diet, and love to eat together, even though they are on different diet plans.

    Carb Conscious Vegetarian: 150 Delicious Recipes for a Low-Carb Lifestyle

    Carb Conscious Vegetarian is full of fabulous recipes. You won't miss those high-carb foods when you start cooking from Robin Robertson's new cookbook. I have made several of the recipes and they are all delish! The Tempeh-Walnut Salad with Lime and Cilantro is filling and flavorful and makes a lovely lunch or dinner. The Black Bean and Sesame-Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms are really unique and fun. The Fennel and Artichoke Gratin with Three-Herb White Bean Pesto is great to serve company, it's so beautiful, and so easy to make. There are also lots of great stir-fry's, one of my personal favorite ways to cook my meals. And Robin really knows her sauces. Just that chapter alone is full of great recipes. My favorite is the Rich Man's Pesto, no wait, it's the Spicy Peanut Sauce, no wait, it's the Charmoula Sauce, I just can't make up my mind! Carb Conscious Vegetarian proves that you can eat healthy low-carb vegetarian meals, without sacrificing any flavor. In fact these recipes are so flavorful, you will want to keep cooking from this cookbook even after you lose all that weight! It is a lifestyle cookbook, one you can use every day, for many years to come.

    Carb Conscious Vegetarian is a wonderful addition to my cookbook collection!

    I have a very large collection of vegetarian cookbooks and I have to limit myself now to only adding books that offer something truly special. Well, I know that I can always rely on Robin Robertson and I was looking forward to the release of this book. I have had wonderful results with her other vegetarian cookbooks including Vegan Planet, The Vegetarian Meat and Potatoes Cookbook, Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker and others. I actually own all of her cookbooks. It is amazing how she never fails to provide delicious, simple to prepare, reliable and flavorful vegetarian recipes and this newest cookbook doesn't disappoint! I highly recommend Carb Conscious Vegetarian for all vegetarian and vegan households. Actually, anyone who is interested in eating more healthfully can benefit from this collection of recipes. Plus, they are all creative and delicious. This book is different from some other vegetarian cookbooks because it doesn¿t rely heavily on dairy products or refined carbohydrates to add the bulk of meals. Every recipe is vegan and combines fresh vegetables, fruits, beans, soy, whole grains and spices to achieve great results. The Ginger Sherry Tofu with Green Beans and Water Chestnuts was so awesome that we made it two nights in a row and devoured it entirely. It is easy to prepare and the fresh taste was awesome. We also tried the Sultry Summer Salsa and that was one of the prettiest and best tasting salsas we have ever had. It is perfectly tangy thanks to the tomatillos (which I had never tried before) and the colors are beautifully vibrant with yellow, green and red. It was perfect and my hubby is a salsa connoisseur. We also tried yummy Spice-Rubbed Vegetable Kebobs, Many-Vegetable Bulgur Pilaf and White Bean Hummus with Green Chiles and Black Olives, again yummy! What impresses me the most about Robin Robertson's cookbooks is how she is able to keep things so simple and still pack a flavor punch. The results are consistently outstanding. Basically it boils down to a few key aspects for any good cookbook: Delicious food - Everything we have tried so far has been easy and very tasty. Reusability - We will make all of the recipes we tried again and are looking forward to making so many more recipes. This is the kind of cookbook that inspires you to get into the kitchen and actually cook and there are 150 recipes to choose from. Nicely laid out design - Carb Conscious Vegetarian has nice easy on the eyes green colored text with clean font and design. Must have a good index - This book has two very good indexes, one recipe index and one general index. Extras - She does a very good job explaining carbohydrates and includes several useful appendixes so that we can understand our carbohydrate consumption. Also every recipe has detailed nutrition information. To get all of the above from a tried and true vegetarian cookbook author at a low price is even better. I read lots of book reviews and would never want to steer anyone wrong. Do yourself a favor and pick Carb Conscious Vegetarian. My husband and I are very pleased with the results and I am sure that you will be too. Bottom line - This book makes it a pleasure to eat sensibly and eat well!

    Excellent resource for beginning vegetarian

    This has been an awesome resource as I begin my vegetarian journey. I made the beginners mistake of over doing the pasta and bread and needed help understanding and controlling the carb intake. This book has easy to prepare recipes that are delicious and satifying. It has become my go-to recipe book for every day meals as well as entertaining.

    Very helpful!

    A good foundation book for someone transitioning to vegetarianism. Found the recipes easy to follow using simple and easy find ingredients. Affordable meals. I particularly like the nutritional breakdown at the bottom of each recipe also giving the number of people it will serve. Easy to handle size book. Would definitely recommend.
